Hey everyone, long time no see.....
Its good to see lots of new quitters on here and some of the ppl that i started my quit journey with. It has been 420days since my last ciggie and i can sit around my smoking buddies and not crave one, i actually feel sorry for them that they are smokers. Keep up the great work everyone!!
hey guys, long time no see!! Good to see lots of new quitters here. I found that at the start i was on here everysecond hitting the refresh button, now that i hardly want a smoke, i forget to check in! So stats are 115days !!! Woohoo havent noticed any savings tho, must be going into the car so that i can get to work everyday...
keep at it everyone, :)
I think the lady thought i was CRAZY!!
haha, went and got my petrol this morning (how expensive is that at the moment??) with my V drink (giving up one bad habit at a time, V is next on my list) and Pack of Xtra gum, when it just rolled of my tongue "and a pack of winfield red 20s thanks! then i had a good old laugh out load, said "oh actually i dont smoke anymore, can you put those back?" hahaha, will have to look out for that trap again :)
The ladies face was priceless! it was a look of distgust, coz turning around to grab a pack of fags would have taken a lot of energy, and i think she thought that i was crazy, what non smoker asks for ciggies! Oh well.
keep going everyone !!
Just thought i would come here and let you all know that i am up to day 50 today and havent even had a slip up!! So proud of myself, havent really noticed any savings tho, but the hubby said that i am buying more at the supermarket, I hadnt noticed tho. so its all good at my end, the cravings seem to come and go these days and YES they do get easier and i feel like im not grumpy all the time anymore...PHEW coz if i didnt get wrinkles from smoking i thought i was gonna get wrinkles from quitting and being grumpy all the time :)
Keep up the fab work everyone
And big hugs to all in canterbury people stay strong
Day 40 yesterday and i made it thru a hurdle!! had a wedding to attend. lots of wine and laughs and dancing with great mates.....and i didnt have a ciggie :)
I wont lie, i did think that it would be great to have a cigie and i did ask my hubbie if i could have one (weird that i feel like i have to ask??). we told me i would be dissapointed in myself and all that kinda talk...
made it thru yeehaa :)
hey ange, you asked me if i thought going without patches was easier on my last post.
For me i thought it was easier as the patches for me were VERY itchy and evey time i itched i was thinking about smoking, I didnt want tothink about smoking so eliminated the problem. I believe if you really want to quit you will. But if the patches are working for you, stay with them, everyone is different. Keep at it, you are doing great :)
wooohoo,just thought i would let you know that i have made it to day 31. I have not used any patches for about 15days, I am feeling better and better. I still have my hard days, but they are getting less and less.
Keep at it everyone!!!
has anyone noticed....
how many smokers are actually out there and how ALL of them dont want to smoke.....
I do encourage, but dont want to be push too much (dont want to be that "nasty non smoker")
anyways 22 days today woohoo, and was able to sit around some smokers today without begging for one, it actually smelled yuck :)
Keep going everyone :)
20 days 2day
WOW how 20days has gone so fast, I am feeling great and loving this non smoking lifestyle.
I have noticed many things.
1. I notice smokers everywhere, pitty them?? maybe, watch them like a hawk.
2. My perfume is delicous without the stench of old stale ciggies.
3. My skin is looking healthy (apart from the super acne breakout, maybe all the nico toxins??)
4. Time, i have so much more time to spend with my girl! (mwahhhh) when did i have time to smoke??
5. I LOVE GUM i used to always have mints, now i love gum, new addiction maybe, but WAY cheaper and healthier then smoking :)
Hope all is well with everyone else
I am so proud of us all (mmmmmwwwwwahhhh) all this non smoking has turned me into a nice person LOL
I havent been here for a while so i thought i would up date you all. 14 days today and feeling great the last couple of days :), even after i had some drinks last night when we went out for tea :) Im thinking less and less of having a ciggie thankfully. Im still having awful vivid dreams, but im not using the patches anymore as they were leaving some nasty circle rashes on my body, they are very itchy still and havent used a patch for a week :)
I am chewing gum (normal gum) like its my new addiction and hoping that all that chewing exercise that it may help my double chin hahahha.
Talking a few of my smoking buddies into quitting. not because im now the smoking police, but when they hear that i have quit, they all want to as well, heres hoping that they do.
It does help when the weather is awfull not to want to go outside for a ciggie (i only smoked outside).
Keep up the great work everyone :)
