  • Hi Marg, I suppose it is up to you but you don't have to do it alone:)

    I think the idea of writing down your reasons is great, follow your daughter's advice..

    Posting here helps too as I think you already know :)

    Anyway, look forward to seeing you in Day 2 tomorrow!

    Good luck and stay strong.:D

  • Hello,

    I think one of the hardest things is making the decision to stop - and you've already done that part so the rest will be fine! As someone said the other day, it's not like you have to do anything, just not do something.

    I'm sure you'll get loads of great help and advice on here like before. The things I've found really helpful are making a list of the reasons why I'm stopping and keeping it with me. If I get a craving I read the list to remind myself. Generally by the time I've got to the end of the list the craving has gone anyway.

    Keeping busy really helps. Like you I find the evenings at home the trickiest time so plan in advance that you've got things to do. Puzzles and jigsaws are great as they focus your mind and keep your hands busy. Also things like knitting, sewing, or even getting a colouring book have all been helpful to me.

    Well done on making this fantastic decision.
