Well bloody done, good for you. It is so nice not to smell smokey too. My husband tried with me but I'm afraid he didn't make it so when he comes anywhere near me after he's had a smoke I could puke. Keep it up gel xx

So very impressive Jane, you cool woman! Please keep posting about your journey though - its so inspiring for everyone who still smokes (or indeed anyone who has a big challenge of any kind) to see how your determination and grit have won through. Thanks for letting us share it all with you, but dont just think you've been supported by us - this has been a real two way street as you have given us a lot too. Enjoy your day! jean

Hi Longlungs we are so proud of you and you are entitled to be chuffed with yourself that's the hard bit done. Matt/Fran

Reply

Hi Matt/Fran ahh how kind you are.I do feel much stronger about it now ,I will still be here babbling away so if I do have a wobble I will scream for help from you all,haha.Hows your first day of your leave gone ?Lots of R&R the pair of you enjoy yourselves now.:) Janexx

Reply

Hi long lungs. You have just achieved the hardest thing you could ever do. I didn't smoke very much but was really addicted. My Husband was on forty a day and gave it up just like that. It took me a few months. I used to go to my sisters and have one of hers. At the end of the week I would buy her a packet. I realised how silly it was and just kicked the habit. It's a good job I did as a few years later I had a really bad asthma attack and if I had still been smoking maybe would not have made it.

Reply

Hi there Marvery it is a complicated habit unlike any other drug or alchol we dont smoke for the buzz in any way?So glad I kicked it outta the door and away they have gone!That sounds very scarey for you,glad you kicked it aswell.Thank-you for supporting me,see you soon.:) Janexx

Reply

Hi Jane. Just be careful when you are around anyone that smokes. It is still early days for you. It is so easy to slip back if you are feeling a bit low. Just remember the feeling you have now if you feel yourself slipping. If you are like i was, first thing in the mornings that horrible taste that's enough to put you off. I tell my sons if they can give it up for three weeks they are pretty well home and dry but it doesn't make any difference to them. They still do it. Anyway good luck you have done well!

Reply

Idefinitely hear what your saying and your right still very early days in the school of things.You will hear me screaming on here if i have a wobble Mavary you can be sure of that.T hank-you Janexx

Hi Longlungs, I can hardly believe it's been a whole month !!! That's great news, well done. Angie. xx

Reply

Hi Angie I know I'm surprised everyday I wake up I say you don't smoke now Jane ,oh yer !!Before as soon as my open I was smoking nowhere was sacred I think if I could have smoked while I slept I would have my life was governed by my habit!! But no longer Angie I've said no and no it will always be.oooo get you Jane haha All good.Anyway what's going on with you at the mo how's you doing? Janexx
