Yeah....Week 2 !!


Hi All. This is my first day of week 2 & feeling quite proud of myself! For so long I have planned my quit date, woken in the morning in a panic (no Fags) & caved in immediately. My other trick was to pinch a couple of ciggies from my hubby so I had those for what was undoubtably my worst time of the day. That would lead to me either buying ciggies on the way to work or pinching some more when I got home. Hardly what you would call quiting hey! I have truly not been too bad this last week. I do not know what is different this time, maybe just the urge to do it is so strong this time. Maybe for once I picked 'The right time' LOL. I do know that my beathing is easier, I can walk upstairs now without having to stop at the top & catch my breath. I do not smell anymore (Well, I hope not anyway!) My cough is better, even managed two nights sleep without being constantly woken up to cough as it feels like my chest is drowning (I have COPD). I am also £40 better off or would be if I was not broke (It's near payday ;) ) Have a great weekend evryone & stay strong :)

Love G. xxxxxxxxxx

Well done you on entering that 2nd week

Already you're feeling the benfits of quitting long may it continue

I think everyone has a right time to quit I had tried so many times before this one as well

You have every right to be proud of yourself Keep it going

Love and a Hug

Hi Neverstoptrying,

Really well done getting into your second week. It's certainly something to feel good about. Have a good (smoke-free) week-end.


Well done you, you have had a whole week free. Sounds like not smoking is definitely helping your health and I am delighted for you. Look forward to seeing your posts in the future.


End of Day 10 & All is well

Evening everyone! Many thanks to all those who replied to my weekend thread. Have been reading since then & keeping an eye on you all LOL. Am still feeling really good & positive I am glad to say. Had a really good day Saturday but felt distinctly 'growly' for most of Sunday. Didn't sleep a wink last night either. Rather hoped I'd got over that but maybe too soon yet. Work was a bit of a struggle this afternoon but hey, I survived. I can't beleive how strong & positive I am feeling this time. I think that the shock of my lung function test really brought home to me how ill I will become & quickly if I don't stop NOW. I would say to all those thinking of quitting do it now, don't leave it till your health is on the line or worse. As I read tonight we have no way of knowing which cigarette in which pack could be THE one to trigger a serious illness or worse. On that cheery note...........Be strong, you WILL be a non-smoker.

Hi G,

Glad you had a (mostly) good weekend, despite the "growly" bits on Sunday.

10 days done and dusted for you now - excellent stuff.:D Before long and you'll be counting in multiples of weeks rather than days.

Keep strong and have a good day.


Feeling quite pleased with myself

Hi deke, Thanks for that. Been to the docs today & had my CO2 tested. Gone from a 4.2 off the scale heavy smoker to a 0.16 bottom of the scale n0n-smoker. Worth it all to see that ;) G. xx
