Evening folks,

I was just checking in to see how my stats are adding up...and they certainly keep on creeping up there.

To those of you who have just quit, I promise you will never regret this decision. Those initial pangs and withdrawals will decrease and get easier every time you flex that muscle which chooses to not give in. And soon your body will thank you as you realise you have stopped pois.... Comments (1) Read more...

Quit Date set for 4th May

avatar-icon

I'm back, with a quit date of 4th May. I used quit.org and zyban to quit for 2 years then relapsed.

Now, 6 years later I'm here . I've had enough and have a lot of reasons why it's time to call time on smoking.

I blogged quite a bit using this forum 6 years ago but they have gone which would have been interesting to read through. However, it's a new day. Time to start again and this time with more incentive I feel like it's a fight I can win.

Not sure whats happening

avatar-icon

Well I'm on crutches now as I can't walk without them. My leg is so sore was back at doctor last week and he's no closer to knowing what's wrong. I feel like there's a massive bruise there but there's nothing. I'm so missing the gym as I really want to go but not much good if I can't walk. Hope you all well, will keep you all posted
