N.O.P.E is a winner!

Many thanks to the bloggers who gave us feedback on a new motivational wallet card a couple of months ago. The most popular slogan was 'N.O.P.E - Not one puff ever', which we originally saw on the Quit Blog. Thanks for the inspiration! The wallet card also features the 4Ds technique to help with cravings.

If you'd like to get a wallet card, please email your name and full postal address to comms@quit.org.nz

503 days smokefree

Smokefree days: 503 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 7545
Total savings: $6,388.20

Wow, really? $6388?! :) hmm, don't know where that went. Well some of it on my belly that's for sure :) I don't think about smoking anymore, and the overeating has tamed itself also. Took about a year. I put on 5/6 khaki after quitting, but i stopped gaining weight and can see I could lose it now. Eating definatley filled the gap for me, emotionally I think. I am a lot more used to feeling my feelings now, instead of having to squash them away with nicotine or food. I never ever thought I could do this, had so many attempts, I cried, tantrummed, yelled, raged, and i just kept not smoking. I have now even quit coffee! Another withdrawl session with that. Life is much simpler not smoking, it used to take up nearly all my time. I had gum disease from smoking ( more than likely from smoking) and it cost $1500 to treat that. Smoking is not attractive! Now my skin glows, I smell good, my breath is fresh and i spend a lot more time with my family. All I can say is, troop it out, stay strong, one day at a time. Because one day you will realise you are out the other side.

It's so good to hear from you. I loved reading your blog, I was nodding the whole way through ha (with agreement). I have been through the same process; smoking definitely supresses emotions, it's about finding other outlets.

Think about this Jelly Kelly & Susie. There could have been a massive celebration if you Jelly Kelly started 6 days later & you Susie, 4 days later, then we would all be exactly even.

Alas, Pop's has to come third. lagging 4 days behind Susie & 6 days behind Jelly Kelly.

Well done JK. on your very impressive 444 days, you too Susie for your 442 days & i will be content with my 438 days.

Remember to log in or I'll extrapolate your stats because I am pretty happy with the fact that you'll stay smoke free.
