Failed

avatar-icon

Failed so edited quit date to today. Annoyed with myself so went on a 6km walk to clear my mind. Think I need to stick a few patches on, going cold turkey is too hard for me. I have Alan Carr book may have to re-read it.

Stats Update: 50 days smokefree

avatar-icon

Smokefree days: 50
Total savings: $477

I am feeling so very, very happy that I have got to 50 days smoke free. Halfway to the famous `hundy club`.
At the start of my quit, I had it set in my mind that when I reached day 50 I would actually be `doing this quit` seriously. Part of me was afraid I wouldn`t be able to reach this milestone. Yet though I have had some scary news regarding my health and the attack on Jasmine the other week, both incidents I could have easily said, `stuff this` and reach for the smokes, but I didn`t, and so now am feeling so pleased that this is not yet another `practice
run`, I am actually doing this for real, and if I can get through those horrible events and not reach for the ciggies then I can get through anything without the filthy things.
I will continue taking this just 1 day at a time, and be very watchful of this monster and it`s sneaky tricks because 50 days is far too many to lose to this addiction. NOPE all the way.....the only way.
Hope everyone has a fabulous smoke-free evening.

Tomorrow it begins

avatar-icon

Feeling nervous. Tomorrow is my quit start date & I'm already freaking myself out about the thought of not having my daily crutch to get me through the ups and downs of the day.
How will I cope when I have my morning coffee, How will I deal with the stresses of work. What will I do when I get bored?
Tips for surviving these early days would be appreciated!
Wish me luck :)

New Year Big Plans

avatar-icon

The time has come - after 35 years that hubby and I need to quit -- hope that doing it together will help! Survived Day 1 and Day 1 evening together - will try and stay strong - more difficult for hubby as he smoked through the day as well and had a couple of beers at night - so no smokes, no beers! I do not smoke through the day, and only had a couple at night, so I am hoping I can do this! Hardest thing is not having that one when I get home from work so far!

Socialising

avatar-icon

I was planning on hiding myself away for a few weeks until I felt in control enough to be out with people and wine and not smoke. Fortunately, or unfortunately, a friend is back from overseas and planning a big night out. Any tips? If I go the chances of not having a cigarette are probably slim, it’ll only be two weeks in.
