WHERE IS MAANU????
Havnt seen him on here or am i missing something??
Never really had sugar cravings, but my text from Quitline explained my 8pm lolly cravings. Thought I was going crazy but have definitely needed to have the cupboard stocked with chocolate/jellybeans. Day 34, the dreams are out there too!
From memory this is where it all starts. First three days is all about 'I can't possibly work with this wobbly head - I better smoke'. But I'm passed that. Yay! So now, it's the curly buggers to look out for... the false confidence and the trickster brain whispering.
And yet - I've never had a bigger incentive. So cancer, despite your ugly head... I quit when I said I would! Round one to me... it's going to be a long fight though.
Thanks for your support Quitline fellows. You probably already know how much that means...
Kia Kaha and look forward to a day off tomorrow if you get one.
Flippin heck!! 300 Days:-)
Woop!! Woop!! Oh yeah!!!
HAPPY 300 hundy days to me!
And just a hop, skip and a jump to my breath day now, ain't that something:-)
Hope your all have a great day xxx

My profile pic is of the chicken coop I am building. Its smoke-free of course. I will not be allowing my chickens to smoke in there. I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself too. Heres hoping I'm still please with myself when my Dad inspects it (hes a builder).
Hope everyone is enjoying this gorgeous weekend and that you are all hanging in. There are so many newbies and all doing so well too. I'm cheering for you all .. stay strong .. you can do it .. you really can :)
2 weeks down
It's been two weeks since I quit smoking. I realised the other day I had been smoking for nearly 14 years. So far it's ok. I feel ok on work days but weekends are hard. Have to keep busy. Thanks to all of those who blog on here and share their experiences. It has been really great to be able to read what everyone is going through so I can know I'm not alone and also what to expect :)
No patches :0)
I'm still here, still smoke free :0)
I'm into my second month now and I don't really think about it much. I went and got my repeat on my patches but that same day I had to spend the day at Medlab having blood tests every hour and I couldn't wear my patch, so I thought 'it's just a day, I think I can do it'. So I didn't wear it and I was fine. Found myself a bit grumpy the next morning so I put a patch on and then discovered that it had fallen off at some stage that morning, so it was another day with no patch. Then I was thinking..... 'well.... I've gone 2 days with no patch, I'll go for three and see what happens'. I'm still going patch free!!! Yay!! I did find them a pain and now I don't have to worry about if I have my patch on. Loving being smoke free. Also don't really feel the need to post a lot.
Keep going everyone :0)

So proud of myself done so well. Having two weeks with little money helped immensely. I'm now going strong with a few whacked cravings sent my way but feeling so much better with myself.
I tried to give up previously and that didn't work out. Even at day 1 I knew that this time was it for sure. I've actually stoped smoking!!
