Cigmund and I are still very much a couple - I have one with a blue hat and one with a red hat.
It used to be I'd never leave the house without the demon now I never leave the house without cigmund and lozenges

Haven't been on for a while as this are getting easier, have been slightly tempted at times but always remembering the last time I gave up, I had one puff and then before I new it I was doing 25 a day again! Not this time N.O.P.E. is the only way to quit for good, one puff and back you go. Bloody well enjoying the massive pay rise I have given myself $175.00 per week, really don't know how I did it....Keep smoke free everybody!
Day 6 and nicotine dulled emotions
I went through some stuff yesterday, I wont bore you with the little details, but it goes like this:
I am on a board, and I realized that I was being misused. Normally, I would have a smoke. I was outraged.
This time, I couldn't medicate myself with nicotine.
So, I quit. I was really worried that I'm over reacting, because of nicotine withdrawal.
But after a lot of thought, and talking to hubby, I saw that I was actually completely justified.
So, what I USED to do, is let situations like this happen, and I would self medicate with a cigarette. Hubby calls it 'self harm".
I am grateful that I realized this, it seems like such a revelation.

Getting so excited for my wedding now as it's only 6 weeks away! Also we finished paying off our honeymoon cruise, which cost $3100, so I guess I know exactly where my quit savings have gone :) So happy to be able to say I spent it on something so lovely!
What a fantastic start to the day :)
Busy day ahead... but we get shouted lunch at work (roast ham & chicken) due to a fantastic first quarter - woohoo!
Went to BP near work (I used to go there all the time when I still smoked and still was with my ex... haven't been there for a long time) to get a drink for my son and thought, oh, well... will get a coffee for me. Well, the coffee was free (every 6th coffee is free with the coffee card) as it was the 6th coffee, which was nice AND the guy (who was still the same guy as back then) looked at me and said "you look so happy! Anything special going on? " WOW!!! that made my day... just replied "nope, just feeling wonderful". HUGE SMILE :D
Made my day... more smiles hehehe
Have a fantastic day all! Hang in there - it's soooo worth it! Love & hugs xxx

Here I am !
“ Cigarettes NOT smoked: 1000” scares me a little when I think of how many I have smoked in the past 10 years.
yay day 3
wow have made it to day 3 bring on one week feeling great and not many cravings oh and have saved 60.00 this week glad I didn't burn it away like we norm do
Here we are at day 4 and when i quit 2.5 years ago i vividley remember this day as being a shocker... and looks like today is going to be the same. I've found the journey surprisingly easy thus far but i didn't sleep well last night and i've found myself craving really hard this morning. I've cancelled all my plans and am going to bunker in at home and keep my head down.... WAY too grumpy to be around other people...lol Today is going to be about taking it one minute at a time. :-) I'm way too stubborn to give in now but it's going to be a hard battle. :-)
Changes are afoot
Morning quit family - hope that everyone is having a wonderful smokefree day.
I have a horrible raspy feeling on the back of my chest today - must be a bit of clearing going on. The significant other took great pleasure in patting (can't think of another word for it) my back to loosen it.
Things is definitely changing - 3 1/2 days in and doing pretty good.
Looking forward to the long weekend and a music concert to boot - whoop whoop
Have a wonderful smokefree day everyone - ODAAT
