(Thanks for moving me...day 2 wasn't nice)

The wings are looking alot whiter without all the yellow smoke stains lol.

I've had a good day today, i'm actally out mixing with smokers and i have found myself holding my breath to avoid inhaling the smoke fear of the nicotine re-entering my new clean body!!! Plus it smells rank.

So glad to have stopped, hows everyone else doing?

Lol, I avoid smokers not because I'll be tempted but just because they stink & I don't want to breathe it in :eek:

Hope my OH has not noticed I hold my breath when he kisses me now as well bless him. I am trying to do it without him noticing. A full on snog may make me go a funny purple shade though :D

Snogging the oh isn't a worry i have right now lol. Good job really because i probably couldn't kiss a smoker... :eek: loooool. I've heard it's pretty gross, i wouldn't know because i was the smoker.

Day 9

Insmonia has eased off thank god. I have a bit of a raspy throat, not sure what thats about, still having the odd cough but only one big cough about an hour after waking and one last cough before bed...:confused:

I feel my energy coming back to me with each day, it's great.

On another positive note i have achieved so much since stopping such as...

*Trimmed up the entire garden

*tidied up and re-potted old and new plants

*My house is spotless and smells of aroamatherapy oils (patchouli, orange, lavender and frankinsense. ;)) much better than smoke.

*I have de-junked every corner possible

*Taken stuff to the dump

Taken unwanted clothes to the charity shop.

Thats just in 9 days plus that includes the jub of a full time mum of 3 kids and 2 horses!

Woohoo....:D

The blue thing i've got is called a tangle, so my hands are kept busy, it feels quite nice, maybe i'll keep it as ny security blanket lol.

LOL i joined active fit on Friday.. they asked if i had already given up and so i ticked yes on 2nd day... then they sent me an email saying.... your quit date is Monday the 15th!!

Get texts everyday now from them asking if i have smoked... and i say no so they reply with "well done you have been smoke free for 1 day, 2 day, 3 day"

etc etc

Its actually making me angry because i know im on day 8 lol

think i mights cancel them :D

But it is good for people who start their quit when they say...

Haha...yes you must cancel that because you are much further in than that!

Your keeping fit too then? I'm really looking forward to riding my horses in the summer and feeling like i'm at one with them rather than feeling like an old hag 'cough cough cough.... and t...rotting on lol:D

Hi Peesha

I wish i knew but all i can tell you is that the first good night sleep i had was after having a good laugh. Previously my nights were very disturbed. I realise that missing the nicotine was playing horrendous games with my mind for the first 4/5 nights but then i found myself 'upset' during the day and having a few tears before bed, maybe being upset or worried wasn't helping.

The night before last i was online and read something that made me laugh so hard and 'i think that actually was just the tonic i needed'. I'd felt so miserable and yes i'd posted about how great i'm doing da-de-da but inside i was sad, i'd forgotten how to laugh!!

So maybe a little enlightment for you. I do practice Reike, i've been praying that helps. I reaally hope you have a better night. xxx

Day 11

woop woop :)

A hng over day 11 for me. At least the insomnia has stopped and i managed to be around smokers last night without wanting one myself. In fact i thought they smelt awful and i felt sorry for them.

Day 12

I;m still here :D all is going well and i have been around other smokers and it did not phase me one bit.

One horrible peoblem i'm having is this tight chest, feels like i'm being sat on.

Day 13

I am doing great. It's a good job i am such a stubborn person at times because i could have caved and 'nearly' did last night. My OH who i havent seen in 8 days was smoking in the same room as me (while arguing plus he's supposed to have stopped too) At one point i cought myself thinking I NEED A FAG RIGHT NOW' and i was so close to picking up the tobacco tin and rolling myself a fag, good job i didn't. I was in a very bad way due to alot of stress.

At least now following that i can hold my head high and say 'I STOPPED..........END OF' and trust me it was hard but no no nooooooooo way is any man making me start the habit again. F off to fags i say. ;) Turns out, we sorted the argument that lasted 8 days!!! :eek: with one added bonus... I am still a non smoker, shame he caved but glad i didn't................

WOOP WOOP

ONE FOR THE LADIES OUT THERE!! :cool:
