I'm sitting here on the end of my bed at 10.43pm starting at my babies and going over my finances. I can't believe I spend X amount of money on cigarettes alone. My kids deserve this money and not my disgusting habit. I'm going to do this for my whanau and save money for a better smoke free future. Anyone can say this and relapse but I'm going to make it happen. Just happy Im finally getting help through this site.
I have been trying too quit smoking for the last couple of months I go from smoking too vapeing it's like in stuck in a loop that I can't get out of my longest is 7 days so far. I've just relapsed after 2 days smoke free I want too quit because its un healthy and effects the way I am with my daughter because of the added stress of having a energetic 3 year old I find myself stressing out and always thinking about my next smoke. I've spent hundreds of dollars on smoked and vapes and I keep going round in circles I dearly I just want to vape and if I can I want too stop all together the loop I'm stuck in is driving me insane because of the in consistancy
Smokefree days: 2,924
Total savings: $40,351
Back again to share some inspiration... 21 June 2012 was my date to quit - and here I am 8 years later and still a great quitter!
If this is your first few days, keep going!
If this is you second try, keep going!
You can do it, because I did it and I never thought I could!
Avoid those triggers, get something for your hands to do in the car (squeeze a stress ball helped me), and put the money you save in the first 6 months away every week and reward yourself with a gift.
You can do it!
You can keep going!
Put your mind to it and keep going!
Stay quitting strong!
Well another smokefree Journey. I quit smoking about 20 days ago. Am I happy, yes of course I am. Do i feel good. I have my days of feeling terrible and also have good days. My lungs are very sensitive to chemical smells now. They cant stand potent strong smells. Anyone else no what I mean??? Advice please.
So I have managed to cut my smoking in half at least. It seems that it is just the Habitual side of smoking. Using Champix is making cigarettes taste foul, and I feel a bit nauseous after having one. My body isn't registering Nicotine and I am not feeling any physical cravings to have one. I decided that before my actual quit date I was going to change my routine. I have been having one in the morning before work, and at work I keep busy during my breaks. That leaves me with one after work and maybe one somewhere between then and bedtime. Im feeling pretty positive and I am not showing signs of mood swings. My heart rate has decreased and I am not using my inhaler as often! Whoop Whoop!
hop out of car into dairy this morning in order to 'treat' nicodemon - it would have been so easy .... am only on day 4 - the NOPEs and ODAATs are writ large in my head - in truth the house could stand some dusting etc , but hey the rugby has to take precedence .... stay safe and warm 'yall x
