8 Full Weeks plus a bit

Hi all

Guess coming to the end of month two (57 days) feels like years since I first started or stopped yep very confused still got a way to go yet.

Urges for nicotine have nearly gone seems I need something to replace angry or confused feelings when in a stressful or confrontal situations might look into yoga.

Health wise a lot more energy and feeling fitter can do 100 lengths at pool again easy.

My alcohol intake right down as well just buy a few beers or bottle of wine ( about £10 a week) when I do food shop twice a week. I will not give up booze completely it can have benifits in moderation.

I wil try and check in more as I have been staying away from board maybe I don't want to think about smoking, hard enough when you see all the quit adverts on TV. The board has helped me a lot in the early days and I feel I need to give something back.

Quit long and prosper all

Hi Gary,

Good to see you're still around, we quit around the same time so it's important to know you're "there" (so to speak). I go through fits and starts with the forum, because on one hand I want to support people, but on the other hand I don't want to obsess and talk about smoking all day.

Good work on the swimming. I went for a run last night and really noticed the difference in the breaths I can take. Really deep full breaths, rather than shallow stunted ones.

Day 61ish here.
