Day 19 of NO smoking :)

I thought I would share how well I am doing with my NO SMOKING :)

I never thought I would end up stopping, as I have no will power, but I have got this far, and don't want to go back to it now!!

So for all of you who are still smoking and want to stop, if I can do it, so can you!

Have a good day, take care, Mandy x

Good morning :) yes I no longer stink :) and my breathing is easier not as painful :) so all good. Have a good day :) take care, Mandy x

Well done. This Saturday, Dec. 11th, I will have 2 years in of no smoking. After smoking for nearly 20 years, I know how hard it is. I was diagnosed with SLE about 3-4 years ago. I suffered a collapsed lung and that's what put an end to my smoking. The doctors think the Lupus left blebs (blisters) on my lungs. I must admit I do miss it, but I've come too far now to pack it in. I did, however, put on quite a bit of weight. I know that's no good, either. So, on the days when I'm not too tired or in too much pain, I try to get on my cross trainer for 20 or 30 minutes. I've also started eating more fruit and veg and cut out SOME sweets...not all...still have to have a treat now and again. Keep with it. You'll feel much better for it. Things will taste better, your sense of smell will be amazing and overall you WILL feel better.
