Smokefree days: 2,993
Total savings: $41,806

I had every intention on holding off this blog, until next week-when I hit the 3's. All about excitement etc...for the cruise at Easter.
With this world in turmoil & Our borders closed (rightly so) this wonderful self-gift is not going to happen. Yeah, sure I'm disappointed-but happily safe, at home.
When Our alert level was lifted to 2, it confirmed my emotions-I cannot continue to work in my current environment, so, I've just left a meeting with my boss. Tearful& blubbering, with no Hugs😢😔 So, I need to use this next while, constructively. Chosen to resurrect my love of Craft & shall be 'inventing' a jersey/jumper/tunic in crochet cotton 10ply. No pattern, just emotive creation!
Bit like Quitting, really! And when that gets 'long winded' I shall be here, in the Blogs, cheering You all on!! Let's see how this next 7days goes-never know, might be my 1st avatar to share with You.
Stay strong ppls thru this next few months. For those that feel strong in Your Quits, revisit Your reasons & reaffirm Your desire to remain so...
Covid 19 WILL NOT bring me down!!

So up to day three and I have started to pace every time I feel the need for a smoke until it goes.... tried the distraction glass of water deep breaths and they just seemed to make it worse so.... the boys at work are gonna laugh at me tomorrow when I start pacing

Cough

avatar-icon

Sorry if this is too much but Is it normal to get a cough and wake up with a slight build up of mucous after youve quit?
I had a bit of an irritated throat prior to quitting but now its just got worse. After a cough in the morning its good though

Mentally preparing

avatar-icon

I realize how long I have been lying to myself, telling myself that this habit is not affecting my health. I am 50 and feeling unhealthy, unfit, sounding like a chesty smoker. I am desperate to be free

Supporting

avatar-icon

Just to add after I have had a refreshing break I am happy to come back and support...however I would prefer to not be doing this alone and welcome others to support with me

PS...I have just come back from our local supermarket and it's like another world with shoppers wearing masks I have been unable to get access to a face mask...we have kept son at home from school due to fears.?.and my online delivery for shopping may end as supplies are running out...
And this morning I saw a BIG nit in his head staring at me clear as day....he needs a haircut desperately he has never ever had one lol my bad just masses of blonde hair!

The blogs

avatar-icon

The blogs are in a sad state of affairs and it seems to me Ady and Pspsps advice has gone unnoticed...so to quickly reilliterate in order to GAIN support you need to GIVE support...


You may wonder why the old bloggers get so much support on here...exactly that they have been around for a long time giving support and gaining supporters over the YEARS they have been here..
And I think they are well deserved in taking a break it's up to you newbies...

It will take more than one person to support on here...it will take a bunch of you guys to pitch in...


Lastly I am enjoying my SMOKEFREE free break from the blogs despite being amongst the Covid 19 apocalypse as it seems things could get alot worse before they get better

Happy supporting on here😊
