Smokefree days: 63
Total savings: $463
thank you for your support last week everyone, my body is behaving and handling the 7mg patches now. I am thinking of dealing with the weight gain before it gets out of hand. I have a condition called scoliosis, it is a disease which causes the spine to curve instead of growing straight. Mine is in my lower back and makes walking really sore if I do to much and limits the exercises I can do. I can swim though so I am off to the local pool next week to find out the costs etc. Have a great weekend and be safe and smoke free.xxx

Quitline blogs

avatar-icon

Again I am going to come to the defence of Quitline. There appears to be a concerted attack and people departing with a huge fanfare-not helpful in my view.

I have no issues getting on. I have no issues with blogs posting. Maybe try windows10-it is not that expensive to buy and easy to upload. Works for me.

What disappoints me is that the people who are leaving seem to be forgetting what Quitline is about-it is not for any one blogger but for the community of bloggers. To help each other out.

Give this new site a chance. It is here to stay.

So here is my message to people who are about to start their quit or have recently stopped smoking. Stay with this site. Ignore the negative messages about how bad some people say it is and embrace the positive influence the support of others on this site bring to you. I have no intention to leave this site and will continue to support anyone who comes on.
