Day 9 and still smoke free!!!

nsd_user663_5598 profile image

Back from looking after the grandchildren and managed to keep them under control without a fag! :D

I haven't noticed much difference in the way I feel yet...I think I'm sleeping heavier and don't leap at of bed as soon as my eyes are open like I used to (to have me first fag).

I have been able to identify smokers when I pass them in the street :o god did I really smell like that for years? how has hubby put up with that for all these years? I'm going to knight him when he gets back :D

Another strange thing is that I haven't replaced the fags with food or anything else...wonder if that's the champix?

Anyway, all is good in JJ's world at the moment (I'll pay for saying that, I know I will!)

ooooops.....sorry, posted in the wrong room! :o

Well done you, 9 days so done a week and on your way to 2 weeks.

Some of the changes I think are quite subtle, I always walked the dog but after about 2 weeks I noticed I was walking a bit quicker and not as out of breath.

Glad to hear you are not finding any major problems, keep it up.

Do you have any treats planned?

Hehe.. posting in the wrong room is also good :), shows just how time has marched on. Well done on day 9... take each day as a major success, and be proud of what you are doing.


Hi JJ :D

Well done you on day 9 so double figures tomorrow a nice milestone to reach

Don't worry about posting in the wrong room

It's frightening to think we all smelled like that and didn't even realise isn't it and amazing how fast the sense of smell returns

Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathiseing with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off and Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

This link is good for the psychological part of quitting

Post often to let us know how you're doing, to rant, rave have a moan whatever you like pretty much anything goes on here OK




Well, hubby is working in the states at the moment but he suggested I deserve something so I'm getting together a list of some Estee Lauder skincare products which are about half the price over there.

Someone told me recently I don't have 'smokers skin' so perhaps slapping on all the creams has done some good over the years! I've wanted a bit of a face lift for a few years now...nothing too drastic, just to look like I've had a good holiday, but all the time I smoked I didn't think it was worth it plus the anaesthetic scared me. So hopefully this time next year I can go ahead and hope I don't look like this! :eek: lol

Skincare things sound good, to go with your new non smokers skin, glowing I bet.

Can't even imagine having surgery, but I am too much of a wimp, and married to a surgeon :eek:

Something for you to look forward to and maybe you could put the money you are saving away and then when you have the surgery you can pay for it with that.

GOOD for youuu!

Everyone in here has to start on day 1...and follow thru!

Congrats on day 9!!!! Your doing GREAT!!!
