:) Stats check in :)
Smokefree days: 15 days Woohoo!! Grams NOT smoked: 108, YAYY!! Money saved: $162.00 Cha-ching lol..
I havent been on for sometime, been really busy and to come back to these stats is awsum :) Been enjoying the smokefree family time (and eating lol) it makes both my partner and I think how the heck we found the time to smoke which is sad coz we missed out that lil bit of time with the kids.. but not no more :)
Lifes much sweeter even though ive had the yukkiest of days at times and really craved that smoke but didnt cave in instead i battled it and knocked that day out, i stil get the odd craving here and there but its not as bad as before...
Anyways i just thought i would quickly check in, im goin to hava jam online playstation3, (thats kept me sane too) my partner bought both me n him the new blackops 2 coz we could afford it lol :)
Sending out luck to all those who are joining me on this journey and Keep up the great work everyone, Have a great smokefree day :)
Before i sign off for the night....

7 days already..???
Hard to believe.. like wheres the days gone, i thought on day 1 aww man this is going to take aaaaaggggeeeeessss.. then reached today smokefree an look back and think oh my gosh i did it :) one whole week, :)
Today im managing better than lastnight.. polished back nearly, a good 2/3 litres of water an 2pkts of pk chewing gum so far.. funny thing is i dont walk round with a sipper bottle (coz i dont own 1) i simply rock around with a 2litre coke bottle and i carry it everywhere lol refill it straight away, but yeah, im proud to have reached this far coz i havent been using any patches or lozenges and i thought this journey was impossible to strike even 1 or 2 days down without those on..
Lastnight i was in such a crappy mood, i dont even know why and my mind the tricky bugger kept telling me i needed a smoke, but all i did was went to bed alot earlier,.. my partners doing awesome too, proud of him :) his breathings so clearer and i dont hear his yukky coughing in the mornings yayy!!!, hes good support for me and vice versa, he even done 3 loads of washing hes not even the type to do that so if this is the good changes coming out of giving up smoking show me more baby lol
Sorry for the long blog, better carry on with my day, will post later on or tomorrow, have a good smokefree day everyone and stay strong :) Bless
Challenged an beaten..
yay :) i managed (just) to get through the shopping today but i swear it was like everyone i seen were smokers i looked left there was a smoker.. i glanced right there was a smoker.. jus everywhere was a beeping smoker... (hadnt noticed how many smokers there really were in this town til today) and i just wanted to walk up to one of them an no shame ask them for a smoke lol, thank god i carried on coz after getting over that craving i was sweetaz,
came home and made sum bun sammies for lunch and that was delicious, ive noticed my eating habits have picked up hugely and im loving the taste of food, gotta remember not to overindulge in chocolate thou lol
one more awsum thing i wanted to share was our 7yr old son mentioned lastnight "u and dad smell much nicer now uz dont smoke mum", that hit the spot right there jus knowing that lil bit difference in someones life can make a huge change for the better.. i was pretty stoked with that :)
it sure has been some time since i last posted..
i have now been smokefree for 4days and im feeling pretty darn proud of myself :) i also have my tane to thank is well as he decided to walk alongside me on this journey and kick this yukky habit too, i was going to give up on the 22nd of this month but felt lil bit confident to try kick it and so far its been alguds :) my cravings arent my problem atm its the habit coz after meals i feel lost and not sure what to do, and the food!!... oh my gosh food tastes so much better i swear it does even after 4days lol, (or am i dreaming it up??)
I think tomorrow is going to be abit of a test as we have to do shopping and well have to change our pattern and watch what we shop for ((heaps of lollies n chocolate has been added to the list now lol)) fingers crossed wel be fine but ill just stick with getting thru today first :)
anyways i wish u all the best where ever u may be on your journey and keep up the good work everyone, cheers :)
new quit date...
i had my appt the other day with my smoking coordinator and i feel so much at ease and figured where exactly i was on this journey, turns out i really wasnt ready to give up, i had set a humbug date up, i had so much on my plate that i turned to smoking without even realizing and really didn't think it through of how i was going to quit, hadn't even got rid of my ciggies, my ashtrays were still sitting outside and i hadn't even thought of patches or gum... long story short, we've set my new quit date up for the 22nd november, (long time away i know) but she advised me to try slow down from my 25+ to 10 smokes a day then gradually cut more down before my actual date, another bonus was she also gave me a prescription for patches and lozenges.. i dont know how i am going to achieve this but im glad that i have joined quitline to help me on this journey, and its always nice to read others blogs, u are all strong so keep up the good work, big upz to uz all :) and i hope everyones having a good evening, cheers
So it turns out yesterday (my first day) was not easy at all.. after lunch my sister rung an before i knew it i had finished a ciggie grr dat pissed me off, its a huge habit i have noticed that will take time to knock, so on a brighter note i have booked an appt to see a smokefree coordinator and the great thing is shes coming to my house "TODAY" to talk the steps through how to slowly give up, she advised that i may have not been fully ready due to lack of sleep, my kids and stress, and that i just plunged head first to try give up smoking an was hoping to give up by a click of my fingers, she reassured me that things are going to get tough but she will be there.. i look forward to meeting her and hopefully she can help me kick this yuk habit, i hope i havent put anyone off on trying to give up, will comment after my appt.
Im about to embark on another journey in my Life...
So had my last smoke for the night at round 9.30ish, brushed my teeth for good 5minutes and hada shower to feel refreshed and now laxing bak in bed writting out on my blog for the very first time,
Today was the first time i signed up on quitline an i must say i have enjoyed reading all the blogs, really inspirational..
Tomorrow is my quit date an im feeling both anxious an looking forward to what the day will bring me, Anyhow goodnight an i shall be back in here first thing in the morning instead of wandering outside for that mornin ciggie, GOOD LUCK!!!!
