Don't buy those smokes" they said
It's ok to be grumpy" they said.
I"m leaving you" my boyfriend said.
Thanks guys... Pearla advice 👍
20 days was a good effort. Catch you next time I'm nuts enough to try this smokefree life
Wowsers I am seriously considering stopping in at the dairy on my way home from work and buy a packet of smokes. In my wisdom I thought it prudent I blog instead. Good idea perhaps? I am strong but some of these waves of cravings are whoppers!
NOPE and ODAAT arghhhhh

Strong cravings again today whew eeeee it's been rough just really really tough. Not constant all day long but periods of very intense longing for the stupid gross nasty smokes.
I fought my way through and as I look back I can see it was more good than bad. My kids were amazing treating me like royalty all day and I got to spend a lot of the day spending time with my mum too. My partner got me flowers and the kids got me a reading lamp as my old one broke when we moved house a couple of moths back. Im so thankful for my family!
As I finish up day 14 and head into week 3 tomorrow I feel confident. I don't think I will need to continue to blog each day as I have needed to the past few weeks so if I am a bit quiet don't worry I am OK.
4's, ODAAT and NOPE.

Had a good day, had some massive cravings which really knocked me this afternoon, but chewed gum til I got hiccups and then I came right. I was feeling happy, the sun was shining and I wanted to top everything off with a nice smoke or two.
I wanted to be smokefree MORE so I was ok.
We got our puppy, he is amazing though much sleepier than I ever imagined, he plays for about 15 mins then sleeps for an hour. He is doing fab with toilet training, no accidents yet!
Stay quit safe everyone xx

Day 12 today and everything is good. We are going to collect our beautiful new fur baby tomorrow morning and so I went shopping before work and after work to get all the bits and peices we need for him. Talk about exciting! We have named him Jasper and he is a little sh*tzu (sorry about spelling. Blogs wouldn't let me spell his breed correctly lol) He is 8 weeks old tomorrow and the waiting is finally over. So good to be able to put this smoking money to some good use.

Day 11 has been a breeze. Did have a bit of a moment this afternoon where I was a bit grumpy but overall I have been fine.
I came to the realization that I have my moments when I get grumpy even when I am a smoker. I also get moments when I get sad or anxious too. It's not because I am quitting that I am feeling these things, it's just a part of being who I am, a complex individual who has good moments and not so good moments. Thankfully more good than bad :)
Smoking never fixes anything!

Had a good day again today. Cravings a fairly few and far between.
So I began a new job at the beginning of March and today for the first time I ran the office all by myself. I didn't take a break because it was just so flat out BUT I did it, I didn't stuff any thing up and in fact I would go so far as to say I did great!
Pat on the back for me, day ten almost over and a big challenge achieved too yay!

Week one finished at 7 am this morning so now I'm starting up my 2nd week.
I really wish I could say I won't smoke again but I have been 8 months smokefree before and still been dumb enough to relapse. 6 months another time and 3 months on my last attempt. Countless other attempts too (sheesh I feel like a real Plonker!)
Full of doubt I have to remain positive that I am in control of my smokefree destiny. I actually CAN do this if I remain ODAAT and NOPE
