Total savings: $3,166
Omg love these days...but does it mean 100 days to a year and even less days to Xmas...aargh...I've had a great week..workout everyday this week...it's such a beautiful day I'm going to walk to the gym again less machine cardio work at the gym...had a few cravings but I know that they can't hurt me anymore only lighting up a smoke will do that and I have zero intention of doing that...also I'm most proud I'm not vaping...it really and truly feels like I'm a non smoker now...I've been wanting this for a long time and I'm going to look after my quit..I know how hard it is to break free..so if you have been struggling to get free remember it gets soo soo much better to the point where you believe anything is possible!..Thanks again everyone for your help and support.
Man what a journey i gave up for a month then went back to smoking that was last year till yesterday at 12am i had my last smoke and havent had one since this is only the first day. Many more days to come but im here again and im here to try my best.
I visit people throughout the day for my job, today I could smell cigarette and thought about how lovely a coffee and cigarette would go together, I wondered if I would enjoy it, and thought I probably would...…. Anyway, I then thought, would I enjoy the thoughts in my head afterwards of failing, would I like to smell like cigarette going in to the next home, would I enjoy the coughing. I came to the conclusion, that no, I would not like myself if I smoked, I don't want to smell like an ashtray, I'm proud of myself for not smoking for 17 days, I can do another 17 days. I feel my mind is stronger than giving in to the crave, I read the blogs here from people that have not smoked for months, or years, and am inspired, so thankyou. Ive got this I know I have, no puffs from this chimney today :)
My quit journey was supposed to start on the 11th but I decided to wait till my card arrived so I could get my patches and gum to give myself a fighting chance. Especially as the 13th was going to consist of a 4hour road trip, by myself, for a big job interview, as well as my birthday which meant dinner and drinks with friends. BOREDOM, STRESS, ALCOHOL. My three main triggers right there. so I figured it was better to wait till I had the appropriate tools and I'm glad I did and today was my actual first day quitting. I had ONE smoke this morning after spending the morning on the phone to WINZ, thats gonna set anyone's day off badly really isn't it but after that I went straight to the pharmacy and got my patches and gum. The gum has really helped me. even when my mom has still been smoking around my I've managed to hold off and only needed 3pieces of gum. I haven't even used a patch today because I had no scissors to open the thing hahaha. But over all my first day has left me feeling proud and like I have accomplished something. Can't wait to do even better tomorrow and not even have one. NOPE.
I'm really enjoying reading everyone's blogs, so encouraging, thankyou. I'm now day 16 and this chimney hasn't fired up :) I'm even feeling mentally good, feeling in control, still have a few craves but tell myself, "NOPE" come this far, keep going
