One week, I am a ninja

Hi all, today is day 7 and I can hardly believe it! As of 2pm today I will have not smoked for a week solid. I can't understand why I thought this was so impossible, because it is totally doable.

I have had some moments of smelling fags on the street and feeling a bit dreamy, but more and more they smell bad. A friend got into the car after smoking and I could immediately smell the reek of it. I used to smell like that all the time!

So yeah, we can do this, all stealthy like the ninja. :D

Ninja warrior!

Good work!

Sounds like you've had a really positive week - I know that feeling of 'why did I think this was impossible?' - it's usually followed by 'why didn't I do this ages ago?'.

The main thing is - we're doing it!

Well done and stay positive. :)

Glad you've had such a good week and long may it continue.

It's shocking the smell on others isn't it, and sometimes I thought that a quick mint and a blast of fresh air got rid of the smell :o

I came out of my smoking ex-mother in laws house again yesterday stinking of cigarettes. Clothes went straight in the washing machine. And I can now smell it on my kids clothes when they've been there for longer periods of time.

I got in the lift today at work after the smokers must have been in it and it was absolutely awful. I feel really embarrassed that i used to stink just like that. Ewww.



It's such a good feeling isn't it, when the penny drops that you can do what you'd always thought was impossible. Well done on hitting that 1st week, stealthy does it! Pols xxx


Well done ajikan81! Me too! I have been smoke free for a week too and can't quite believe it! Woo hoo!! I'm hoping week 2 is a little easier and I'm not so crazy but yeeha, didn't think I could do a week! Good luck for another week!


Congratulations!! I have also made it to one week. I still keep counting up the days in disbelief, lol. Best of luck for the week ahead. ;)

I knew smoking made us smelly but I had no idea how smelly! It was bizarre for me yesterday as I passed about 5 people at a building entrance (where I would normally stop for a ciggie) and I hurried right past them (while avoiding breathing in their smoke!) It was snowing for goodness sake! I just felt relief that Im not one of them anymore, happy days. x
