new to the forum and on my 11th Day of not smoking

Hi All

Just thought I would say hello as Im new to the forum and currently trying to stop smoking.

Im currently on my 11th day of not smoking and very proud of myself, things are going good so far. I even went to the pub on saturday and managed to not smoke, for new thats excellent.

Hoping to get some help and support if it all starts to go Frank Spencer

  • Thanks Pupalup, and congrats to you too, thats excellent, thanks for the support.

  • Thanks Boudee

    Im dealing with it very well, had no urges yet (touch wood) feel much happier, even more energy than I even had before which is a lot, Im currently like a 10,000 volt live wire and Im channeling all the extra energy into going to the gym.

    The reason why I gave up and what keeps me focused is my 13month yr old son. I dont want him to have a Dad who smokes, eveytime I look at him I know exactly why I have given up.

    I also like real ale and Im bit of a wine connoisseur and its never tasted so good, I cant believe what Ive been missing out on,

    Thanks for your support, :) :) :) :)

  • Hello And Welcome.

    Well done funk for getting to day 11, we are all behind you 100%

    The support on this forum is fantastic.

    There is no better incentive to quit than your kids is there, I feel like I am giving my boys a gift by no longer smoking coz now chances are that they wont smoke either, thank god, plus you are saving them from all the second hand smoke.

    Stay strong and welcome to the forum.
