  • Hello Eck how nice to hear from you thank -you so much for your support helps me loads really it does.How has your weekend been? Keep well,be happy.Janexx

  • Sometimes, your body tells you to sleep whatever time of the day. You have had stress so listen to your body. Then remember that you need sleep at night as well. I really admire non smokers and that includes myself!

  • Everything you have said Annie ditto,Ihave to say was concerned about sleeping this afternoon because of bed tonight idont have a very good night routine at all,so was suprised i feel asleep at 1.30 last night havnt done for several years.Have always been a bit ofa night owl.Everyone who stops is a star and for staying that way most of all,when somebody tells you how long it is that they have stopped you can feel their pride it means alot to that person aswell as the newby about to start.It is a major underestimated addiction !I wont rattle on .So definately feel proud of yourself annie and everyone that chose to stop and have succeeded.Janexx

  • Congratulations Jane. Giving up smoking without any other worries is not easy so you are without doubt one strong minded lady. Your gold....... Well done. Holly.x

  • Hello Holly good to hear from you,what have you been up to over the weekend ?Thank-you you are too kind.To be honest that first day was probably the most dangerous,when that day past it gave me more strength for when you have that mental argument with yourself and i had alot,also i didnt want to let the people here down even though i kinda know people would be understanding.It sounds very corney Iknow,but the day i found this site and joined in which was a biggey for me i just suddenly had a gut feeling that hopefully with the forums support i would be able to set my new stop date,iam able to draw strength from you all iam inspired so much by everyone,you are all special in your very own individual ways.Everyday I learn so thanxHolly for being one of those who help not just me but us all.Janexx :)
