  • Well done on your three weeks of not smoking.... I feel that's the hardest bit over and hanging in there now has to be worth it. Things should start to balance out for you and your quit become more comfortable and 'yours' :)

    Enjoy the knitting...... any idea what your going to tackle after all this time?

    I should pick it back up..... in fact I should pick up the half jumper front I started around this time last year:o

    Let us know how the not smoking continues for you

    Hi Jamangie :)

    Well done on 3 weeks smoke free you'll of course get some bad days wanting to eat is normal but it passes but you've done well to loose the extra weight so quickly

    Knitting will certainly keep your hands busy just hang in there it will just keep getting easier

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

  • Hi Again

    Hi all thanks for looking at my post I think i am so lucky to be able to do this CT and know i want give in I think it has to come from within else we blame whoever made!!!!!!!! us stop and go back again health is my reason as I feel its now or never

    Not easy but didnt prepare and think that when you set a date its to much trauma as it gets nearer I would have talked myself out of it but xmas morning I lit a cig at 9am and then decided to put it out and not smoke for xmas day and each day for the first week I just said to my self that I will not smoke today but I can tommorrow if I want to and 3 weeks later I am not smoking also read loads of really scary stuff about smoking and that helped for first week like on 60th of a gram of nicotine will kill you that blew my mind LOL

    Does anybody quit CT with zero withdrewal????

  • My ode to smoke

    I’m really glad that now I’ve quit

    Cause in the past I’ve smoked some sh**

    Smelly Hair Hands and Breath

    Shorter Life but longer Death

    Up the hills you’ve got no puff

    Smokers cough that makes you rough

    So pass each day without the weed

    Cause only then will you succeed

    So Bravo to all that now don’t smoke

    Cause early Death is sure no Joke

  • Brilliant Jamangie - love the ditty.

    I admire your manner of quitting - its almost like the accidental quitter. Well done!!

  • Thanks

    Hi thanks Lilly may I call you that or would you prefer flower Lol

    Yes thats a good description accidental quitter will call my new book that if you dont mind?? the one like alan Carr wrote and made a million and of course will pay you a bit when its published LOL

    Its brilliant to have a site that guides you down the right path to stopping i only found it by chance and took ages to get logged on an posting but I am always the last to know LOL

    How are you doing my first week was the worst I actually decided that I would keep my hands busy by writing and so that is what I have done it was ok till I set my ball point on fire and melted allover the new jumper I had brought myself as a treat for stopping Oh well they always said i was daft now I know I am LOL
