    day 18 is brilliant ....coming up to 3 weeks ...how good are you.

    So you should feel good about it ...Big pat on the back, I dont know much about IVF but i guess smoking dosnt help it much....A huge incentive :)

    keep posting

  • Thanks Kitkat.. Still doing ok but keep having dreams that ive smoked and i have to start all over again. I keep waking up in such a panic. Is this normal.

  • Hi kel

  • Hey,

    Well done on getting that far into your quit! I can safely say the worst is over and now all that remains is for you to beat the psychological demons that will taunt you until the nicotine clears from your body. I found that smoke dreams are the most messed up of these demons.

    Just remember to keep mentally well balanced, take walks, drink plenty of water and try to eat a variety of fruit!


  • Thanks Alex, I think between me and husband were spending more on fruit than with did on fags :D but sooo much better for us.

    thanks for the replys.
