1st Month Celebration
Well, I've made it to my goal of 1 month smokefree. Cold turkey for the last 2 weeks, lemon flavoured boiled lollies seem to be all I need to stay on track. (alongside positive thoughts) Last night woken at 12.09 am with a quitline text... whats up with that huh?
The texts were great for the 1st 3 weeks but now they seem to have a reverse effect on me and make me think about smoking when I wouldn't IF I didn't get them so am going to cancel them.
Next goal 3 months, enjoying all your blogs, they are a definite help to staying on track. Not blogging so much as just getting on with life which is pretty drama free and mundane as I like it to be :)
Keep up the battle, don't be dissauded from getting back on that horse if you slip up, keep your thoughts positive and keep looking forward.
Last night I was really peeved. Had some news at work regarding working conditions that to be frank have me thinking I'd be better off looking for a new job.
You'd think after 23 days and all the drama of last week that I survived smokefree I'd be OK but NO I smoked 2 and even worse they were tailor mades which even as a smoker I detested.
Then the alarm went off waking me up at an un-godly hour of 6am. Hang on, did I smoke those 2 cancer sticks in my sleep? Wracked my brain, really had to think back over the last 12 hours, did this all happen or not?
No it didn't, I'm just as wierd as you lot and suffered my 1st smoking dream!! (nightmare)
Day 24 and still smokefree :)

Well, I think I have had the worst few days of my life and pleased to report that I DID NOt reach for a smoke. On Thursday had to rush daughter to hospital for emergency surgery. Bet the stupid doctor who told her she had swollen glands feels real dumb now. Also on look out for new doctor lol, anyone in Nelson like to recommed one.....
Took myself off the patches a week ago and feeling MUCH better for it. Can sleep like a babe now and not needing any sleeping tabs so that solves worry of becoming addicted to those... happy happy happy!
Still sucking on the occasional lozenge and they seem to help me enough to get thru any moments of craving. No idea if I've put on weight but trying to keep snacks healthy. All in all, feeling really good, started to cough up some gunk now and even though gross to talk about makes me feel like I'm getting crapola outta my lungs.
Skin looks and feels so much better than it has and this is wierd but I don't seem to have to redye my hair as often as I was as a smoker, anyone else noticed this phenomenon? Also great to lose the purple feet now my circulation is getting a bit back to normal.
There's NO WAY I will EVER go back NOPE NOPE NOPE.
Keep up the great work everyone, you all rock :)
14 Days...2 Weeks...1 Fortnight...1/2 a Month
Yipppee, now my next goal is 1 month. Not sure if I will keep blogging each day but I will definitely be reading them every day, they are mostly what gives me the strength to keep on keeping on :)
Decided not to wear the patches but still sucking on occasional lozenge and carrying a patch for emergencies. I know Quitline says 5 times more likely to succeed with em but they seem to knock me for 6 especially the inability to sleep. I'll let y'all know how it goes (those with bad sleep)
Keep on quitting guys n gals, this is the 1 place where quitters rule :)) smokers drool :-/''''
Day Thirteen But it Aint Hurtin'
Another day got thru, nothing to say about it except tomorrow will be 2 weeks and that sounds nice :)
Bed for me, I'm knackered YAWN
