Smokefree days: 98
Total savings: $1,200

Nearly at my one hundred day milestone and feeling fabulous. Seeing all of my friends going outside to smoke does not make me envy them at all... it's freezing. I still can't believe that I used to go out there with them, crazy!

On a side note, the cravings have dropped (thank goodness). Although there have been a few times where I have thought, just one puff, but thankfully walked away.

Awesome to see lots of bloggers on here as well as the OG's.

Kia kaha koutou. We can all achieve in this journey together. Keep it up.

Smokefree days: 75
Total savings: $918

It is day 75 and I'm still finding myself daydreaming about smoking or zoning in on a cigerette when I see it on TV or people smoking in the streets or in their cars.

Just keeping the positive thoughts ahead of the urges. My health and the amount of money I have saved. As well as thinking how cold it is to be standing outside just to have a cigerette brrrrrrr.... not cool.

Birthday

Smokefree days: 70
Total savings: $857

It was my birthday on Sunday and the husband threw a surprise party for me. It was amazing to be around all of the people I love. Even though the minority were smokers and respected my wish by going around the corner of the house to smoke, I could still smell it and not once caved in.

Still alot of work to be done. As drinking and emotions are my worse triggers, but am glad to say that I have defeated both triggers so far. Feeling strong.

I hope you are all keeping well and safe xo

Day 56 and I didnt have a smoke with my friends

avatar-icon

So after being very nervous about catching up with my friends, we had a few drinks at home and... I passed!

Every time my friends and husband would all go outside, I would stay inside and clean to keep my mind occupied. Phew!!! That was a really hard test, but I am so glad I overcame it. I know there will be more trials, but so far so good.

First day in level 2 and friends are wanting to catch up. I'm not sure if I am ready yet to see people. I talked to my cousin via video chat last night and watched him light up. It brought up memories and now I'm concerned that I might break.

Wow, I am nearly at my one month mark and am feeling amazing. Suprisingly, staying in isolation is helping me alot. It allows me to keep away from my triggers and keep myself busy with the kids and lots of cleaning lol.

I hope you are all keeping safe and well.

Kia kaha koutou.

Day 8 - Had a puff and hated it

avatar-icon

Had a horrible Friday, horrible Saturday tried to drown all of my emotions in alcohol and then cheated on Saturday night while intoxicated and had a puff. Too many small, inconsequential things that would normally not phase me, just bombarded me all in the space of a couple of days like a giant snowball. Greatest thing was, I absolutely hated that puff. It made me want to vomit and I haven't thought about a single smoke since.

It's still early days though, but great to see my bank account is actually quite healthy before pay day.

Day 4 - Still here

avatar-icon

I've had a few moments where my willpower overcame the cravings and stuck to it's guns and kept the ciggies away. Have kept to my regular routines and have kept my half empty packets at home the whole time. Most times I've even forgotten that it is there, which is a good thing.

Am still listening to my hypnotherapy sessions in bed before I go to sleep. Sometimes I wake up early hours of the morning and it's still going. It seems to keep me grounded and I've noticed I do alot better with it than any of the gum/lozenges/patches/pills.

It's the latest update.
