Nine months and all is well. No cravings, a little weight gain, taste excellent and no more nicotine smell in the house. Brilliant.
If I can do it so can you, I was a heavy smoker of 62 years.

21 days

Hit the 21 day mark. Today is a bit different - first day back at work after the 'lock-down' and finding all sort of triggers happening. Sad to say but I used to be one of those that would drive to work with a cig in the car - found it difficult but doing ok. I hope all of you are well and NOPE

The world out there

avatar-icon

Well I survived the weekend and took the kids shopping. I did not realise how much I missed Kmart lol. I did not go visiting anyone though I did not feel up to it. Not that confident in my journey yet. Going through some very stressful times but I am happy to say I haven't caved in. This is great and works as a process... stress... no smokes though... slightly proud of how strong I am.... then more stress ... and on the cycle goes. Handling it only just but just looking at my stats help me pull through. ODAAT.

Stay strong

avatar-icon

I am still smoke free 34 days yay. It has been hard and still a little bit but it is more a memory now. I am not thinking about smoking but the memories and people more, I am looking foward to catching up with my friends and family members but a bit anxious about seeing the ones who still smoke. I am making a mental plan and will have gum handy or just have to do the walk away while they are having one. I feel I am strong enough to do this now and as long as I remember my reasons to quit it will make it all more worthwhile. I wish everyone the best for reentry into level 2 world. Make plans and be true to yourself and don't let others challenge you or make you change your decision. We've got this 👊

Well I made it this far and not going to lie I have had withdrawls mood swings moments of questioning but I have made it so far. I still Think about having a smoke but just smell the after lingering scent my husband brings back inside and realise it is not what I want again. It is nice to have clean smelling clothes hair and hands all day. Saving money is a great added bonus and don't have to weigh up how much I need smokes and how much my kids need things like clothes and shoes or food. I'm a better mum who is more present on a daily basis not an outside parenting person. The future is full of challenges but I'm ready and believe in myself more to achieve. Heads up everyone keep on keeping on and so will I.

Day 10

avatar-icon

Hi everyone, I hope you all well! Day 10 for me today. I am not sure what happened but yesterday was the hardest day for me. I had the cravings really bad, and also probably a bit short and grumpy with others which made me fell even worse. Managed to ride through it with the 4 D's tho. Was a reminder to me the need to manage situations better and be aware of my triggers. All the best to you out there - hope you all going well

Cravings

avatar-icon

It’s been 6 weeks and 3 days and the cravings are only starting to kick in now. I’m trying my hardest to fight the thought of just having 1 smoke. Any suggestions to help fight the cravings.
