Hi Fellow Bloggers,
Know I havent been on the site for a long time but a lot has happened since my last blog & No I have not slipped up had to have a Cat Scan done in which they picked up a blood clot on one lung which I am having treatment for & that will be for the rest of my life it is to thin my blood the other bad news is while having had the Cat Scan they found a shadow on the left lung which now has been confirmed as cancer so as you can imagine I,m not overly happy at this point in time but have never regretted my decision to kick the habit of years of smoking thanks to Quitline & all you great bloggers am starting chemo in the next 2 weeks but I know I will beat this
So to all you newbies its never too late for you just do it
Wish I had happier news but will keep you up to speed on my progress when I can
Onward & Upward xxx
Hi to you all
Well been a while since my last blog so have not seen the new format until now but it looks good
Seems like all is going well for us older ones , great to see a lot of new ones joining us they will never regret being smokefree I know I,m not, best thing I ever done for myself despite putting on some weight walkings good though & the dog is loving it she also needed to lose a bit must be a female thing lol!!
Well I will wish you all a very Happy New Year & hope you all have a safe & healthy 2011
Cheers to you all
Hi fellow bloggers (quitters)
Just catching up with all the news most of which is good some of us still having a rough patch but at least you are still with us, also good to see more & more newbies joining the journey of becoming smokefree, you will make it just takes time also one day or minute at a time whatever works for you
I,m now 197 days smokefree feels great dont feel like a leper when out socialising, but will admit there are times when I get tempted to pick it up again but tell myself why would I want to go back down that track again when I found those first couple of weeks so hard
Well hope you all have a great safe& healthy smokefree xmas also a wonderful New Year
Cheers to you all
What Next !!!!
Heard on news this morning that over in the UK they are thinking of making people clock in & out on their smoko breaks.Is it because they are not working or what & what about the non smokers do they have to do the same even though they are not smoking, makes you wonder if the same ruling will be put into place here in NZ sure sounds like more of a nanny state than ever, What Next???
Hi to Pukeko & Shane
Great stuff you guys whoop whoop!! You told them like it is great stuff cant believe they want to take away the rights of non smokers as in us everyone deserves to have smoko break whether they smoke or not
Weight to go
Well here I am 4 plus months down the track of being smoke free & enjoying it
Now comes another challenge is to lose the 4kg I have put on since giving up I didnt worry about it at the start, not until I went to try some of my summer clothes from last year on only to find out that nothing fitted or was so tight its not a good look, not only that I put on a brand new pair of 3/4 pants that I bought 3 weeks ago only & already have popped the dome arrrr!
Think this is going to be just a big a challenge as going smokefree but will take it one day at a time
Hope to lose at least 5kg by Christmas which isnt very far away if not its a good excuse to buy new clothes can now afford them seeing as I have given up the nicodemon
Wish me luck in my new challenge will keep you up to date on weight lose hopefully!!
Cant believe I have managed to reach my 100 smokefree day feels good to even say it, though the journey has been tough it has been so worth it in every way health & monetary
To all you Cantabrians down there hope the worst is over for you & you can start to have some sort of a normal way of life I have been keeping up with news on a daily basis as I know most of us in NZ has also been doing
Wishing you all well keep up the fight & the good work
WOW!!! Cant believe I have got this far without caving in, not that I wasn,t tempted mind you it would have been so easy
The journey has been a trial of ups & downs highs & lows like a roller coaster sometimes even feel like I have been riding on one
Have dragged out the knitting needles to keep the hands busy but sometimes the mind isnt quite with it example have had to pull apart what I had done not once but 4 times & that was just about doing my head in & times like that I would have lit the dreaded nicodemon through sheer frustration but wouldnt let it beat me this time,but as you say onwards & upwards
The journey hasnt been an easy one but well worth the challenge
Hi to you all
Just worked it out I have been smoke free for 2 months, sounds better than days didnt think I would get this far without caving in have surprised myself even after smoking for 46 years but feel so much better for it in every way
Watched that video about Thanks tobacco you killed my Mum I dont usually cry about sad stories but you would have to be pretty hard hearted not to while watching this I know I did
Made me appreciate the reason why I gave up the dreaded nicodemon also for my kids & grandkids who I want to see grow into adults & be there for all there important years eg 21sts weddings etc
Well hope you have all had a good day so far enjoy reading all the blogs keeps me motivated
Time has gone so quick cant believe I,m at day 56 have even given up the patches & down to 1 zyban tablet a day yahoo!!!!
Though must admit I still have the cravings but use the 4 D,s which work for me
Great to see a lot of newbies coming on board you wont regret the experience, yes it is bloody hard to start with but gets better with time as a lot of us can vouch for been there & done it so dont give in to the nicodemon
Hope you all have another great smoke free day
