Hope you are all well and enjoying the snow!!
Well, this is month four and the 25th of February will be four calendar months and am I glad about that!
I have never felt so well in all my born days.
Stopping smoking has acted like a calalyst in having a new found respect for my body. I now exercise for an hour everyday and go on long walks at the weekend; I have stopped drinking alcohol during the week; I have eating much more healthy food and I have lost 12lbs in weight!!!! I have never had this much energy. Smoking must have had a really negative effect on my body and brain.
Yesterday I went to mums house, she had left a cigarette in the ashtray along with a lighter. I am still puzzled by cigarettes!! I put it in my mouth and pondered how easy it would be to light it but the taste and smell was overwhelmingly vile. I also asked what the reason would be to light the ciggie, to smoke.
I came to the startling conclusion that I now have no reason on this planet to ever smoke again and will never have a reason - no matter what happens.
I used to smoke because I had to - I was addicted, now I am not. Simple!
I love being clean and green and would never dream of slowly suffocating myself again.
And I have so much money to spend!
I must say in all honesty I have never been happier and love not smoking!
There is one down side: on a mission to get fit I have been exercising and working my body like there is no tomorrow and so I noticed my ankle was swollen and my foot ached. I went to the doctors and she told me I have flat feet!!!!!!!!!!! So now I wear big fat insoles to help!!!!! They cost more than my shoes did!!!
Oh well, you can't have everything.....there goes my army career in tatters...........:rolleyes:
