Day 18

Finally trying to quit smoking. I'm been smoking nearly everyday since I was 15 (now nearly 27). Not even sure why I've tried. I just woke up one Sunday after a smoking loads on a night out and didn't feel like having one anymore!

Lots of excersise is helping and I'm feeling the benefits! Its a buzz being able to breathe properly again and I'm less stressed because I can take deep breaths!

I've been out drinking twice since I quit and havn't cracked on either occasion. I will be tested hard over Christmas/New Year because most of my friends, close family smoke when they are out. Although, I would rather stay indoors keeping warm, staying healthy and eating Christmas pudding! :)
