Ah, that's a lovely thread to read- good on you. I'm particularly impressed on the chores, I've pretty much given them up on the grounds that I associate them with fag breaks- the house is descending into chaos! (Apart from today) I think half term's actually been easier than normal- I had a friend round yest- 4 under 5's between us and normally the whole day is nothing but deal with kids and taking turns on cig breaks, as we've both quit- this time we actually got to have a catch up, we were more chilled, so in turn the kids were. No time at all now and we're gonna be breaking that 1 month barrier- aren't we brilliant!

Hi KitKat

16 days nah 17 now, well done like you say you are proud of yourself and so you damn well should be. it is nice to be able to actually concentrate on doing something without stopping for a Benson and a brew ...dont miss though days at all ...... you keep staying strong and determined with your quit dont let anything or anyone stand in your way, before you know it you will be your first month milestone so onwards and upwards Kit Kat :)

good to see you are still going strong, certainly seems like you are more comfy on this quit and alot less :eek:

keep everything in perspective and don't let anything overstress you , if you have to take a break to collect your thoughts... do so.

priority is keeping yourself able to deal with quitting smoking.. as much as poss.

good luck, your doing good.

Hi kk

Really laughed when I read this, I was just the same, cig break after each job completed. Surprising how much quicker things get done now. Great to see you are going strong :)
