No Smoking Day

Hi everyone, well yesterday was my first day smoke free! to be honest i started on Thursday, but i had half a ciggarette when i got home from work! But i didnt smoke any more. Friday i did exactly the same, thinking its that time of day when i get home from work and have a cup of tea, with a ciggarette. It hard to get out of the habit! Both times i felt really annoyed with myself, but all the same very please because dispite my failed attempt to go all day, i did only have one full ciggarette in two days!!

Yesterday.... Finally i did it! and felt fantastic! My boyfriend (who i live with) still smokes, but very rarely compared to me, didnt think i could do it! so im now more determined than ever to quit for good!! Now i simply ignore him smoking, i leave the room, or make a cup of tea when he lights one up! Or even better he smokes outside! He has finally understood how serious i am, and is supporting me (although im sure still very doubtfully)!!

Im finding distraction the best for me. I read more, play games on the computer or simply go for a walk! ITS WORKING!!! im very pleased! i just dread the day i get really stressed!

wish me luck, all my love, Laura xxx
