so proud


I just wanted to share with everyone that I have been a non smoker for 16 days and I am so proud of myself. This is my 3rd attemt to quit and I feel it is going well so far. I have had a few tough weeks but told myself that smoking will not make the situation any better, which has worked. i have also started a health kick at the same time so I have not put on any weight,which sabertarged my last attempt :)

I am using patches which have really helped with the withdrawal symtoms and I don't think I could do it any other way.

Hi Gemma . Haven't spoke to you b4 but bloody well done girl!!! I've tried a few times b4 to quit but never managed more than 4 weeks . However this time I feel I am really going to do it . I am on day 5 of champix and whilst I dont quit properly until next vweds but I'm already smoking a lot less than normal (around 8 a day instead of 20). Again CONGRATULATIONS!!!!:D :D :D
