6 weeks as a non smoker

Hello all

As you can see have reached the dizzy heights of 6 weeks as a non smoker. Or to put it another way 840 fags not smoked...... how amazing is that? Have to admit this week has been the easiest, probably helped by the fact am really busy looking at property. Also changed my car and smoking is banned inside the motor, So overall, not wishing to blow my own trumpet etc etc but feel I am well on the way now and more re-assuringly know that I shall never pick up a fag again.

Hope you are all ok and keeping warm and cosy, in this miserable Nov weather - I positively hate winter in this country. Time for shed loads of hot chocolate with whipped cream on top, a few marshmallows floating around and a chopped chocolate flake on top just to round things off nicely. Mmmmmmm yummy. Have a good weekend all. xx

Congratulations Lizzie on keeping off the fags, time for lots of treats. very miserable this morning in Shropshire, very damp and drizzling. You're any 'early bird' like me. Love going to bed and love getting up.

Well done Lizzie. Keep it up now, as I'm sure you will. When I did it, someone said to me (an ex smoker) that you know when you have cracked it - its when you stop counting the number of days it has been. Then you count the weeks, then the months (that is where I am - 10 months) and finally the years. That is when it is well and truly behind you.

Well only if I go down to Cardiff Bay and get a waft of sea air from Bristol Channel!!! Live close to one of the busiest roads here where pollution levels are much higher than they should be. Happily shall be moving soon to somewhere surrounded by trees whoooopeee dooooo.

Doing great Lizzie! Like poetic lady I'm counting in weeks am in wk 14 now and still feel the wobble a little. I want to be like you and Lynne and able to say I will never smoke again I need to keep remembering the last day I smoked when I was really struggling for breath because of it. Cold and wet in the west coast of Scotland but just back from a week abroad which has cheered me up no end. Hope you get your move and get to live amongst the trees soon!
