Apparently Im still a smoker

avatar-icon
Today I had one person ask me for a lighter, one person asking if I had a spare smoke and two asking if I wanted to go outside for a smoke with them! All these people were my cousins loooool. They had a duh moment and forgot I was smoke free the silly guys lol. One cousin even said "but it's November now" and I was like I did noooot plan to remain smoke free for only one month, otherwise what would have been the point of quitting? Lol.

I must confess though - I had a moment when my cousins went out for a smoke and I thought "I secretly miss that socialising part" when we would be outside chatting away during a cigarette. I knew I wasn't ready yet to hang outside so I stayed inside and distracted myself with some online poker lol!

I hope you've all has an awesome weekend! Surprisingly I'm eagerly ready to kick Monday in the ass! Lol.

Stoptober - The End

avatar-icon
Kept thinking yesterday to post but life gets busy lol. So so so so happy to report that we did it, we survived Stoptober! Yuuuuuuus!

I was reflecting yesterday on this past month and I thought if it wasn't for Stoptober I'd be making up a date after date to quit and excuse after excuse for not sticking to it lol. Buuuut, thanks to Stoptober we did it! It's been an amazing month, the first few days and week was the wooorst but we sailed through. The amount of money we saved, how much fresh air we breathe, the extra time we have - amazing!

Thank you my blog family for the never ending support. You are a part of my journey :). Happy to continue doing this!

Ps, i had a dream last night that I had a few puffs! Uuuuh ooooh. Gotta keep that guard up and remember - N.O.P.E

Stoptober - Day 25

avatar-icon
We took my bike for its first ride today. Definitely enjoyed that 20k ride. It beats being at the gym riding nowhere on their bikes lol. Only thing is, now I've got a saddle bum seeing as I haven't sat on a bicycle for a long time.

Fiancé almost gave in today. And if he did, I probably would have too. He had a few beersies so he bought a packet of ciggie! But, throughout the night the packet remained sealed, until his cousin finished his own pack and started smoking them ha! I'm just glad my darling didn't spark up, and I'm proud of him. I kept giving him a 'don't do it' look lol.

Stoptober - Day 24

avatar-icon
Excited for tomorrow! My fiance gifted me with a bike for my birthday and I get to pick it up tomorrow! Yaaaaay. I haven't owned a bike for about 15 years! Hehe. Felt like it's the best present ever. He said the other option was the S5... but meeeeh, why get the next geno ph when I won't use it to it's full potential? And I'm happy with my S3 - it takes photos, I can text, access the net etc etc so I'm still happy with my ph. The bike, yes, the bike beats having the newest ph lol.

Uuuum, sorry for my blah everyone. I'm just a tad over excited lol. And also excited that there's less than 10 days to go for Stoptober! WOOOOHOO!

Enjoy the long weekend bloggers. Don't forget the decreased speed limit. And if you're under 20, not a single drop of alcohol if driving. Actually, no drink driving applies to everyone :) lol.

Yay, we get to wake up to Friday!

Stoptober - Day 22

Smokefree days: 21 days
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 189
Total savings: $189.00

Omg, I cannot believe these stats! Hard to believe I haven't had 189 smokes and saved about the same amount too. Woooow! It's funny, my fiance asked how much money I had and when I told him he cracked up laughing. I'm basically broke with all my bills and he's like "if you're already broke now smoke free... how did you find the money to get smokes?" and I thought... true true lol.

Today I also get to celebrate another year of life hehe. Aaaand, my first birthday smoke free since I started up 12 years ago! Woooohooo!

Happy hump day my Quitline family :)

Stoptober - Day 21

avatar-icon
Only three weeks and I feel like I've honestly forgotten half the time that I even smoked! I'm getting used to this smoke free life :) Fresh air, not having to cover up a smell around others, not feeling so breathless during trainings and the free time. Oh my goodness.. so much free time that it's now hard to kill a whole hour of a lunch break lol. Especially when I work 30mins away from home so I can't just go home for lunch like my colleagues lol.

Aaaand happy 10th birthday to my beautiful niecey. It's amazing how time flies with kids. One day when I have kids I hope life will slow down a little bit more :) Hehe.

Wednesday tomorrow. Bring it on.

Tonight I realized that I haven't had my zyban at all this weekend. Argh! So glad I didn't let my guard down without that Zyban to protect me. Wheeeew! When I remembered this I thought craaaap! I could've relapsed??

BUT I DIDN'T :)

Back on the Zyban tomorrow. I can't wait lol.
