1 month and 1 day

Hi everyone some of you may remember me from april/may-ish, i tried to quit twice around that time and failed twice. This time though my willpower seems to be 10x stronger, its been one month and one day since i last had a cigarette. I decided i had to quit because i have crohn's disease and smoking really aggrivates it. I'm using patches. Also i feel great i have more energy and my teeth are abit whiter. Thanks.

  • hello Daniel :D:D,

    so good to hear from you -and your quit is going really well.

    I am still here by the skin of my teeth -and struggling with energy.

    got any tips ?

    and has your crohns improved ? xx

  • Thanks skylark, I have a cup of tea if i'm feeling low on energy, or a power nap. I just put my patch on and try not to think about cigs at all. The crohn's is much better now I used to throw up alot when i was smoking, I dont think i've bin sick once since I quit and i dont get stomach pains anymore, so yer my crohns is alot better :)

    how long have you gone without havin a cig?

  • We gave up around the same time in early may I think-cos I remember us both posting .the health benefits to my chest have been so worthwhile .

    and your health sounds soo much better :)

    it is the best incentive of all .

    you still playing the guitar ?

    thanks for tips :)

  • Yeah quitting smoking is hard but its so worth it, I play my guitar sometimes but not as often as i thought i would when i bought it lol, but its always there when i want to blast an oasis tune out of it haha :cool:

    Hi daniel,

    Good to hear you, 1 month & 1 day is just brill. made up for you..& you shud be well proud of yourself:)

  • Hi Sky and Daniel

    Just want to say a massive WELL DONE to you both for staying with your quit. So glad Daniels Crohns and Skys chest problems are better already, just imagine how much better you both will be after 6 or 12 month quit.

    It is an exceptionally hard thing to do, I have been to hell and back during my quit but it is worth it, and you cannot smoke and have good health, I have learnt the hard way, just so lucky my cancer is still in remission at the mo.

    Take heart, think strong, you can do this, just grit your teeth (swera and scream when you have too).

    Dee :)

  • thank you so much Dee for those lovely encouraging words :)

    you can have all the wealth in the world -and it is nothing without your health .

    so glad that you are in remission Dee. you must have been to hell and more .

    and still find time to come on here and support :)

    a lovely lady xx

    thank you .

  • Hey Daniel,

    Yeah I remember ya, well done mate, I did think to myself........where's he bloody gone!! :confused:

    Hows guitar coming along? Any new tracks you've mastered?? Take a look in the general forum I've posted a Noel special tonight! I can strum a few chords but it is hard........love my guitar hero's though!!

    PLUS it's a great way of keeping your fingers busy whilst smoking!!

    Great to see you back

    Shelly X
