Been a while
My last few updates have been pretty negative so I might just fill everyone in on whats happening. I have not gone back to smoking. Basically, everytime I am drinking and there is someone smoking I cant help myself.
HOWEVER, the good news is no matter how many times this has happened (3 times now) I have not wanted a ciggeratte the next day, and I feel pretty good about that. So I am still off and feeling great. This is where I get the idea of social smoking but people says it never works...
I have a friend who gave up smoking and only now smokes when he drinks. He now drinks every night... Dont want to end up there.
MORE on the positive front. I have been eating healthy, pretty much only chicken and ham salads for about 2 weeks now. Im also on gym supplements (fat burners called 'Grenade'). Having at least 40 min walk everyday to work and back. So not only combating the weight gain but actually loosing weight. about 4 kg so far. Give me another 6 weeks you'll be grating cheese on my stomach. BOOM.
Been smashing DDR (dance, dance revolution, google it) for about 2 hours tonight will my mate Will who recently lost his partner so thats been pretty uplifting for both of us.
Still on the patches, using the everyday but I really dont mind.
Keep up the good work people. Stay strong.

Double digits - Test results
Kia ora Team,
Smashing out day ten at the moment.
Its going so well!
I have tested myself multiple times. I only have one test remaining.
The following are the results. Basically I am testing my triggers to smoke and seeing if I can work through them.
Energy Drinks/Coffee - PASSED
Have tested this one multiple times as I am a fiend for NRG drinks. I have a coffee everymorning with the people working on my house and they smoke around me - this just stregnthens my attitude.
Alcohol - PASSED
Have tested this twice although I have not been drunk, maybe slightly tipsy but at the worst of times I just busted out the nico free e-cigg so that helped me through this one. Keep in mind this was a few casual ones at home - not in town etc..
Stress - PASSED
I have been at work - constant stress working for govt dept. No need to explain. Issues with the partner because now she is quitting and is very evil (worse than me)
No sleep - PENDING
One of the biggest ones is if I get none or little sleep like 1-3 hrs. I would smoke at every oppitunity. Since quitting I have been getting better sleeps and can get to sleep easier. So I havnt had the problem yet. But Im sure when it comes around it will work out fine if I can survive the rest.
will update when I can.
Thanks for the support team,
ON A SIDE NOTE!:
Quit line text me saying: "If ur feelng dwn bcos uv snuck a smke - don't! thnk of all th smkes u hvn't had. ID wat made u smke then mak a plan 2 avoid it nxt tme"
I dont think this is appropriate. Its like saying its ok to sneak one?
Made me think anyway. I just feel it had more of a negative impact than a positive one that most of their texts have. Any comments on that?
