    Hugs Wendells xxx

  • Hi Wendells yes my doc is a star and very patient it must be so frustrating for them watching us smoke knowing how ill its making us.I have always felt guilty but never guilty enough eh? until now she was so very happy, which made me happy :) Mmmm my dreams might share one not the naughty one,might be considered alittle much ifancy !Mutual hugs enjoy your weekend . and a big thanx to you .Janexx

  • Keep going well done long lungs xx Berwick

  • Yes i will berwick ,how long to the cravings last ? thankyou for you support. Janexx

  • They will annoy you for a while, but the good news is the urge to smoke will weaken, the temptations will be less strong and not as often, until they gradually fade away. I smoked up to 60 a day for 40 odd years. I could not face one now if someone was paying me and telling me how good it was for me. I never fancy one and haven't done for ages. But, as we keep saying, we are all different and that is just my story. You are now a non-smoker though, so you have your own. ;)

  • This is very good to hear Toci ithink my wandering thoughts might be to a couple of visitors who smoke and i found my now elephants nose stretching to their smoke almost trying to inhale it,After a little while ifound myself not liking it and was opening doors and taking them in the garden showing off about my strawberries ha what a bore they must of thought,having said that my strawberries are particular hugh at the mo.lol Janexx

  • Why are you allowing them to smoke in your home? My house is non-smoking, and has been since the day I decided to quit. My husband and son still smoke but go down to the bottom of the garden to do so (in the greenhouse when it is raining) and never smoke in the car. Set some rules! x

  • I hear what your saying Toci my family dont my sons go outside or out of the bedroom window..It was the boys father that had come round which gave me the miseries anyway when the moment was right i disappeared and didnt surface until he had left,it was best to be quiet believe me.Otherwise this is a smoke free zone.:) Janexx

  • Thank-you so much rick this means so much to me.:) Janexx

  • Good for you Long lungs! take care xxxxxxxx

  • Well done to all you stoppers keep going it is soooo important. In 3 days time it will be a year since I smoked a COPD stick and can't quite believe it. Still chewing gum by the shed load but its taken this long for the cravings to disappear. Only very occasionally do I feel like smoking but that feelings lasts for a nano - second. So stick at it everyone - cleaning your teeth helps if you feel like smoking and chewing airwaves helped and drinking loads of water. Those are my tips for staying stopped.

  • Hi pamela thank-you so much iam very pleased it is a good thing :) Janexx

  • i always think is best to tell the truth they can only advise you to give up but if you dont you will get very ill im speaking from experince nearly died two yrs ago phnemonia set in horrid .i had patches for few weeks but then went on to vapour thing that you puff on from time to time brilliant

  • I agree but i have to admit to stretching that truth in the past and saying im only smoking 10 but still smoking 30-40,hurting only me how naive Not now though i do get stronger by the day which is aswell coz the craving not good sometimes its the mental argument i have with myself,mad addiction.but im still doing it and thats whats important.Janexx

  • Have you worked out how much you've saved Jane? xx

  • well done Jane, told you you could do it , inshort while you wont even think about then horrid F*GS. love Malk.

  • Hello malk yes you did im not counting those chickens just yet but am quietly confident,getting stronger by the day,i hope your right that it will only be a short while and i wont give them a second thought.thanx for you continuing to support it really does help me.:) Janexx

  • Hi Toci, Thats what I keep telling ( Jane ) Longlungs, lt will get to the stage where she will wonder why it has taken her so long to give them up. (fags) I was a sixty a day man. cant stand being near a lit cig now, can smell somone smoking from a long way off, even walking down the street I look to see who is smoking, its a horrid smell, ( never thought I would hear myself saying that ) Take care Malk.
