Hi Everyone!


Just checking in with everyone and good luck to all you new year quitters!

I myself had a cracking smoke free Christmas and have more energy than ever before.

I did have a few days over the holiday where I had thoughts about wanting to smoke but I just kept the faith in my belief that I had made the right decision to stop......it passed eventually.

Over the holidays I have been out walking with the dog for at least two hours every day in the fresh, crisp, clean air - it has been absolutely fantastic. I haven't needed my inhalor and walking has been so enjoyable!

I have definitely noticed how much more energy I have.

Unfortunately, I enjoyed my food a bit too much and put on 5lbs so it is back to the diet today but I suppose lots of people put on weight at Christmas (even if they haven't stopped smoking).

Hope all is well with everyone else.
