2 months smoke free πŸ‘ yay!! Cold turkey - it's actually easier giving up smoking than eating healthy now especially with lockdown lol it's a good thing I had to continue working this last month or else I would've had to use the money saved from smoking for new clothes πŸ˜‚ thank you to all the regulars for your amazing encouraging comments. Hope you're all keeping safe 😊

Smokefree days: 10
Total savings: $107

I've managed to stay on track - Body & mind still feeling amazing - have stocked the cupboards & fridge with healthy food, $'s normally spent on smokes & some towards bills or savings. I've stopped using the patches & pop a nicotine gum when I feel a strong urge coming on & alternate with a normal sugar free gum. Had quite a few challenges this week where I could've easily succumbed to a ciggy (my go to temporary false stress relief) but I didn't 😊 phew 😏 I tried to remember the D's at one point & could only think of 'stop, drop & roll' lol πŸ™„ Best compliment I received this week was a client saying I have beautiful skin - I have not heard that in forever. Love how my mouth doesn't taste like an ashtray in the morning as well - even better I haven't had 80 cigs!!! πŸ™‹

5 Days Smokefree

Body & mind feeling heaps better - have to say when I went to hang the washing out I looked at my old smoking spot under the mandarin tree, was kinda sad, that was where I would reflect on anything & everything while puffing away lol I haven't smoked 40 cigs according to my stats wow 2 pkts & that money has gone towards food. Best feeling is not having to decide whether or not to use my last bit of money until payday for food or a pkt of smokes - grateful for my patches & gum they have helped loads πŸ‘

Better Late Than Never πŸ‘

My original quit date was sometime in January but I didn't start - my script arrived for gum & patches & I put it aside & ignored it as well as phonecalls & texts from the Quitline team 🀦 Last week I felt horrid I was lethargic & noticed I couldn't breathe properly especially at night - that was my wake up call. I filled the script but before I quit smoking I adjusted my diet ( my bro is a health & gym junkie - he taught me how to eat properly & manage weight) my diet was also a heart attack waiting to happen so last Saturday I switched back to what I had been taught - Tuesday 18 February was my quit date 😊 4 days smoke free & feeling really good. I contacted Quitline & they have been awesome support. I have to admit changing my diet intake was easier than quitting smoking lol. I've lost weight already because my once tightish clothes are loose again & best of all I can BREATHE without difficulty at night.... winning#earlydays#oneday@atime#betterlatethannever πŸ‘

Bring on 2020

avatar-icon

My journey begins Monday 6 January - I tried to start this morning but my cravings kicked in & I caved & bought a pkt of 20's. That's when I realised I needed something else - in the past I've gone cold turkey & it worked temporarily. Been smoking 22 years off & on - enough is enough. This is definitely an amazing start to 2020 - looking forward to it. I was scrolling through Facebook & came across the Quitline page. My curiosity got the better of me & here I am - patches & gum ordered :-) nervous & excited at the same time....the journey begins.....
