I have a male and female budgie. I woke up this morning and my hubby brings in my dead female bird. All I wanted to do is reach for a smoke but I didn’t. I’m happy about that but am sad I lost my baby girl. A mate has taken the male to breed him with his 2 girls and I get the pick of the litter.
Hope everyone is well
Saturday will be 2 weeks quitting smoking. Im feeling proud of myself, getting off smoking was the hardest part for me. Still feel the cravings every now and then but not as bad as the first week. Everyone who's craving the ciggies, you got this ! Let's do it together !
I am quitting for what could be the 100th time. First full day today. I have been smoking for 12 years and I am almost 28. My goal is to 100% say I have quit by my 30th birthday. Does anyone have any tips? I am using patches and have gum if I struggle even though I hate the taste of it. I am planning on using this blog a lot as well. I also have a list of shallow inventives to reward myself with the money I will save eg: New lipstick at 3 months, book at trip at six months etc etc. Thanks for reading :) :)
Hi,I've just started quitting after a long time smoking.
The reason for me starting is for my kids,my health and I just can't afford to keep up the habit anymore.
They say to keep it up,u can do it,blah blah and I think I can this time.
I've bought a vape while waiting for my patches to come through the mail,its pretty hard this time quitting cause depression has set in pretty hard straight away.im not one to get depressed but this time its hitting hard.im trying to keep active and carry on which is working,I'm on my own doing this with no support around me so being active helps.im pretty sure it will pass but time will tell.
I decided last week (on Thursday) I was quitting ciggies. I went and bought a vape pen. On Fri/Sat I had 4 ciggies a day and said when I ran out, that would be it. I had my last one on Sunday at 2.30. Tonight, Wednesday I came home and had two, one straight after the other! I feel like a big, fat failure!
I'm back again.. Its been two months since I've been on this website.. I began smoking again. This time I'm fully ready.. I realised I am spending too much money on tobacco. The other day I spend $96.00 on 50gm tobacco, $1.50 papers and $1.50 tips.. What a big waste of money!! I could have gotten an hour massage, beauty treatments.. Or food for the house.. I am so sick of the addiction, worrying that you will run out of tobacco and when you do looking everywhere to find some you might've hidden away.. Its time to stop! More importantly its for my health and the worry of having a heart-attack, stroke and not to mention second hand smoke to others. Thats it I'm done smoking!!!
wow... interesting thing I am now out of the habit of going into a shop and buying cigarettes.. it doesn't cross my mind now to ask for them..
other stresses have been removed... the financial stress.. i am spending less in all areas not just cigarettes.. i guess no need to go into a shop so impulse buy has been removed.
feel more socially acceptable and not have to worry about a stinky car clothes or sneaking off for a ciggie when around others who dont. such as aday trip out of town with some girlfriends to go to a market.
skin feels softer and more hydrated
weird thing my tonsils have been sore and throat sore.. wonder if the bugs snow have a chance to survive and arent gassed out of existence before they have a chance.
taste is better my mood funnily enough is better
i fire less to triggers being a bit of a reactive hot head at times.. i expected to be insufferable to be around with this.. however its almost as though the chemical change of not smoking has placed less pysical stress which balances the emotional stress..
i stillhave the odd strong craving like when doing gardening stopping to think about what i am doing next would entail a ciggie once upon a time.. now i recognise it and not stop but tidy up while thin king of the next step
i am waking at odd times but that may just be me and isnt unusual for me if i have alot on.
the dreaded weight gain... i havent bothered with worrying about it after 21 days my strategy for that will kick in remove alot of bread tea and coffee and replace with green tea and water
