I have finally got here, a century, wow, cant believe it!!!!!
I stopped smoking on No Smoking Day this year and honestly didnt think I'd make it to lunch time!! I did get to lunch and ate like you wouldnt believe!! Then I started behaving like a manic woman(even more so than usual hehe), garden and house spotless, yes with 2 young kids in tow! Had to keep my hands and head busy!
So what was different this time? Well I got on this site and I read lots of posts about peoples experiences - just like what I was going through. It made me realise that I wasnt alone in this, I found it hard cos my partner was still smoking. I believe you stand more of a chance if you dont go it alone, and even though this was my challenge I knew I had support - thankyou all!!
Anyway down side to stopping smoking??? There isnt one. My mum keeps embarrasssing me saying my skin is glowing and telling everyone how sallow it looked b4 - cheers ma! Shes right though and she said people would pay good money to get that glow bottled :D. I've also put over a stone on in weight but again everyone saying I look healthy for it mmm I seem to be saving money smoking then having to shell out for new clothes cos I've gone up a dress size hehe!!
So I'm giving myself a pat on the back and to everyone else whose given up!!
And those who are thinking about it - go for it - give yourself a chance - its the best thing you will ever do for yourself
