No Smoking Day

A new room already :D yay

My worst time yesterday was about 3-6pm then I felt like I had done so much don't want to smoke now anyway!

I don't smoke at my sisters and stayed there a couple of times so I know not smoking for a day or two is not bad for me.

Then come to think of it I didn't smoke for 9 months so really why is it hard at all??

It's all a conundrum!!

Feeling confident that I will get through today, slightly concerned about tomorrow but that is for worring about tomorrow!!

hehe I am a bit flitty today if you know what I mean?

I slept fine last night but this partying mode for 2 weeks solid may have something to do with that!!

Got tons of housework to do so hopefully I will at some point press on with that to keep me occupied!!

Stay strong everyone!!

Thanks for all the support,

Don't think I could do this without you all x x

Hi all, l did a really stupid thing last night. Guess what? I only forgot to take my tablet!!! I don't know if it is all in the mind, or not taking the tablet, but this morning has definately been worse than yesterday. I'm blaming Buffy for this, encouraging me to drink Brandy & Coke. Tee Hee

Must admit Alcohol for me went up when smoking stopped! But then I did find going to bed helped too!!

Cheers white x x

I know John not good lol this time round I am going to try and keep a bit of a lid on the alcohol and food! :D I still have the weight gain from last quit can't put that all on again!!

However they do say that red wine is good for you :rolleyes: my mistake is differentiating between 1 glass and 1 bottle :D

Buff,

Well yes ... I do have a fair few wine bottles in my recycling by the end of each week. But I find having a little one running about does tend to prevent you from going too far (1st and foremost you have to be able to get up early in the morning). So a warm buzz by the end of the evening is not such a bad thing in my mind, I mean the plan was to give up smoking not to become a monk!! Food wise I snacked, but then I really needed to as I had lost too much weight, I just need to get back into the squash/lunchtime swim long term etc.. to keep it somewhere I want it.

hehe yup totaly empathise with the kiddies bit.

Lucky i don't do nappies anymore but Changing a nappy hungover is something one will never ever forget!! :D

I too have missed gym while i picked up the fags again >_< d'oh

I can now pass for around 6months pregnant :D hehehehe

Thats my last res back to gym!!

I don't mind the weight either but it needs a little tidying :rolleyes:

Reply

Nope no nappies TG :D!!!! I have a full on 4 year old ....who's still up and about by 6:30 each morning, which would be a nightmare after a heavy session.

More curves Buffy!!! Nothing wrong with that... As a bloke I do find it odd why the fashion industry is constantly trying to make women look under fed... I guess it means they dont need so much material to make their clothes but think you'll find most of the male population prefer a more healthy fed look!

Indeed I am not one for trying to be size zero just healthy lol

Fimo beads pics.

Here's some of my first attempts at making Fimo beads, the pictures aren't great. I have done more since but I can't find my camera usb cable

the first pic, that is just a blob to keep the beads on.

The others aren't sanded or polished yet, hence the thumb prints!!

Clever girl Buffy.

I was bought a bookatrix cardmaker and a boxmaker so everyone got posh cards 4 xmas . Oh and theyve opened this HUGE hobbycraft on the retail park in nereby Stevenage. Pure Heaven!!!:D

Reply

:mad: I WANT A HOBBYCRAFT!!

My nearest is croyden which is over an hour train ride. prolly get to stevenage in the same time :rolleyes:

Theres no hobby shops left around here, If I had the money, I would open up my own shop.

I got all the cards,toppers n papers in for cards. It's good because the kids could all join in and produce nice cards. I did origami stars too to top them.

My eldest daughter loves making beads with me too.
