Hello all. You're right, it is getting easier. Still do get cravings for a cig but not half as many as I did when I stopped smoking. 6 weeks and one day in! Keep it up!

Just been thinking what an amzing thing we've done. It's taken ages to stop smoking, it's such a hideous thing when you think about it. I am so so pleased I'v emanaged and its really great that you're all in the same boat!

I'm not quite ready to move over to month 3 yet Lou - but good on ya! Still doing well. Very strange but a guy at work's running the marathon and it's making me think about starting to go running - I feel so much fitter now, it's great. But maybe I'll leave it til the weather improves!!

8 weeks

I'm still here it's been 8 weeks now and I'm feeling really healthy. I gave up smoking and joined the gym the week after and it's the best thing that i've ever done. The coughing is now a thing of the past I feel really good and where I was constantly ill before i'm in the best of health. I was one of the lucky ones and found giving up after over 20 years really easy but I think that is because I really didn't want to smoke anymore and when you reach that stage there is no turning back.

Please anyone that has come this far don't give up now as it is such a waste of all your effort.

Good luck to everyone.

Coming up to week 9

my name is Carol, im a mum of 7 yes 7. aged from 37 to 14yrs. And a nanny of 5 grandsons. Ive smoked since 15yrsof age 54yrs of age to 16th December 06, i feel like a born again Christian must feel lol.

The cough has gone, so i can get up in the morning no-one knows i,m up.Dont hear me anymore. that cough was a dead give away!!!

I can run with the grandsons, play footie , AND taste food.I gave up when i did after finding out my natural mother had heart problems, her sister had the same , and i have 2 sisters who have heart problems, and i was wondering why i had panic attacks, depression, palpertation. Now im ready to kick the old man out if he doesnt quit cos it stinks. He is one of them bigits who smokes in the kitchen cos its cold outside, cant go anywhere without the backy tin..How did i do it?I just stopped. If you have fags in the house when you stop you know they are there, you are not taking them off yourself straight away, so you think your not having them taken off you .. You will get everything wrong with you going . Colds, moody, uptight but its better than dieing .Stay in there , the money is secondary, but it feels good top spend what you,ve saved in just a month.
