No Smoking Day

OMG 1st smokefree Christmas/NewYear nearly 20 Years!!!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I was worried that it might prove a bit too challenging for me, especially when I got some rather pricey Cuban cigars as a prezzie! (Guess that's my fault for not telling the family I'm quit). But made it to the end of what must be the first completely smoke free one, in nearly 2 decades!!!!

Well one more day and then into week 4.... Starting to be able to concentrate more now and not finding myself constantly opening the fridge door to see what I can nibble on ;)

All the best for 2008 to you all

COOL!!! My very own quitting buddy :D... I was beginning to think I was the only one who quit around the 10th of December and approaching that 1st Month mark. Well done too Nix!!!!

I knew Christmas/New Year would have been the biggest test for me from the social side of not smoking, but at the same time it helped as I was not working, and I was always finding myself reaching for the pack when I was under the cosh for deadlines/work stress etc...

Not being able to focus at the initial part of quitting would have been a complete nightmare for me job-wise.

Keep it going the 14th Jan isn’t far away now and that’s a huge milestone under both our belts :)
