Day 3

Ok so this is my 3rd day on my 21mg patches. havent had one cig, although i have been tempted but i stayed strong, started thinking of it more of an addiction than just a cig. been jogging yesterday and today, to keep myself busy on an evening, organised tomoro aswel with a work mate but i think iv pulled every muscle possible in my left leg lol! ran a mile in 20 minutes last night, and halfed the time today!! felt abit nakerd like!! is having a jog then a chinese after sort of killing the whole point of jogging?? haha!

But yeah, slowly getting out of the routine of smoking, eg after meals, after shopping, while driving, etc etc and the chewing gum and boiled sweets are helping aswel!

Woop go me!! lol

Hoping tomoro is better than today, even though today wasnt that bad!

wohoo getting there! xx:)
