My Reason

I am really going to try this time. The times before have seemed a good idea but my heart wasn't in it. I'm doing this for my daughter because she will need me around for some time to come and because I am feed up with being poorly.

It's now day 10 and I'm so proud of myself for doing so well. It feels good. I wake up happy in the mornings and feel I have more energy. I have taken up exercise and eatting LOTS. When I start to think one more won't hurt (of course I know it will) I take a look back and remind myself of what I was like when I did smoke.

I am hoping things will get better because at the moment it feels like a fight between good and evil in my head.

Good vs Evil

Hi Sammi,

Well done to you hun. Good will win out 'cos you won't let it do otherwise right?

I think we all know 'the just one thought' & it never is. Don't let that thought win, keep fighting & that thought will pop up less & less.

Have a great smoke free day.

Love Gaynor xx



day 10 into this is awesome progress, i know the battles between the good and evil that you speak of, and you will win this out.

Think of it like Darth Vader and the Emperor trying to tempt young luke skywalker to the darkside..

'I'll never join you!'
