Tena tatou, yes 6 months today put it in my calender as a little milestone reminder to help keep the motivation going. Can't believe it feels like I've left smoking for dust now. To everyone who is in their first few days, months well-done and keep blogging. I still cannot believe how this simple tool of quitline blogging was the major turning point for me giving up. I am so greatful to quitline thank you! In future i'd like to see a platform of blogging utilised for all other types of addictions too. Hey stay safe out there keep up the good work just stay on the waka people thinking of you all peace..... Auahi kore! NOPE ODAAT 😁👍😎
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the current situation everyone.
I'm 98 days smoke free and have no intention of returning but there is a little bit inside me hoping I never have another smoke again because let's face it when the music is good, food too, great company it is so easy to want one. Mind you aging is upon some of us and smoking don't do us any favours there haha, good deterrent Otherwise I am fully enjoying being a non smoker and saving money.
Thank you to all our essential workers especially the medical professions. My thoughts go out to all those effected here and overseas from covid 19.
Have a fan day all you smokefree peeps keep up the good work and
those who have had hiccups, all good today is another day to be smokefree 🤸😊
I am very proud of the fact that I have not had a puff for 69 days! Thanks to quitline for allowing me to blog and myself for sticking at it. I know the day will come when I am at my weakist and vulnerable but fingers x I don't tell myself a ciggie or two will be fine.
To all of you not smoking and making positive changes in your life well done and keep it up. We are such good role models to everyone around us especially our children.
I have been smashing big blocks of whittakers chocolate the last couple of days!........... oh well I can rest assured I have my taste bubs back well and truly working at 1 hundy percent lol.
Have a great day everyone :-)
Hi Quitline whanau keep up the good work we are never failing if we keep trying no matter what. Yes 46 days smoke free I keep thinking yeah not long though and I'll give in somewhere and have a smoke especially when life stresses kick in. I slipped up on another bad habit I am wanting to stop this weekend but I am aware a set back can simply be that and I just need to get back on the waka of being mindful and in control. I also have to remember to pat myself on the back, dealing with addiction/s can be very hard but with a positive and we'll informed mind I will be free of these bad things. Well-done everyone for still trying and being smokefree, Don't be hard on yourself if you slip up all good, keep getting up each day and staying positive. Have a cool smokefree day. You know the one thing inside my mind that I smile about now.... is getting up close with people to talk or read something, I don't stink anymore or have to cover my mouth so they don't smell cigarette 👍😁
Well-done for committing to this group of wonderful people who support each other. Who would have thought I am totally reliant on a blog for my support becoming smoke free lol. 3 things I am greatful for today.... one most definitely is the quitline blogs
How is everyone doing with not smoking brilliant I hope. Just wanted to share I'm 18 days a non smoker and I am going to keep up the good work ahakoa te aha lol I do have some days where I doubt myself but touch wood they've been ok keep up the good work people we have got this 🌠🤸
Hey everyone 9 days non smoker for me contemplated having a cigie with my neighbor when she offered one cos the chance to say I don't smoke anymore never came up if you can understand that we were already chatting about other stuff when she offered. Fri nite lastnite too and the old habits go through the mind uh nice day get some drinks and cigies but I never... drove to new world at 9.30 pm instead and got me a small organic dark chocolate to eat instead haha my life now. My friends live out of town or have their own families so can be lonely sometimes. Got a friend's farewell today, I'd like to have some drinks but know when I get relaxed and people are smoking (there probably won't be any but if) I will want one. So does that mean I shouldn't drink? Maybe aye or just have 6 then that's it lol yeah right. I'll keep strong though, everytime I think I feel like one I'll hammer those thoughts with positive ones to not smoke i.e.smells, am a non smoker now, go out lippy on instead hahaha. Have a good day you awesome non smokers 😀
6 days a non smoker I really hope I can stick at it for the long haul. I am fine today not fussed about smoking at all but I know over the next 3months will be the teller. Mind you am training for a new activity that I need to be fit so that is a huge motivator for me, exercise and slowing the aging clock lol. A daily walk could help those finding it hard to stay positive. Keep going you non smokers you 😀
In the past the cravings really start around the 3week mark not looking forward to this! First smoke free day today, shivers thought about sparking up like 15 times lol.... just one beer and a cigie, oh no I'm going to eat more what about a cigie. Did the breathing technique 3 times, kept talking to myself lol. Health is so important now more so than ever and I want to be here to enjoy my grandchildren and help my daughters when they have kids. I know how challenging it can be and mindset is everything. Loved sparking up, dancing like no one's watching with a drink in the hand. Can still do that if it's a must but without a cigie now, they actually taste and smell gross so I'll just smile that I got to experience it be grateful I want to be healthy now. Take care everyone...
