Day 7 with no nasty nico at all !!! not even a sniff or a chewie. Who would have thought eh? Certainly not me... I remember before Christmas dreading quitting because I thought I would miss smoking.... welll I did and I do BUT I LOVE this feeling of freedom. I promised myself a little treat each week. I was smoking 20 per day so allowing myself each week a treat JUST for me of £5. Something I would NEVER buy beforehand, something to say say "thankyou" to myself...

So this week I am buying a bottle of Trevor Sorbie shampoo... as now my hair no longer stinks of stale smoke I can enjoy having lovely smelling hair for the first time in 20 years :o

PS Hubby now decided to go cold turkey like me and he is managing better he is on day 3 well done Hubby xxx proud of you xxx

just a postscript on the STENCH of Nicotine

Forgot to add this on my main post for the day.. I have posted this on another thread but you will see why I have chosen my particular TREAT this week as a lovely smelling hair product...

THE STENCH OF NICOTINE: I used to push my little boy away from me if I had been in the garden for a fag as he did not know I smoked and I didn't want him to smell me.

He has since told me he knew I still smoked as I smelt 'revolting' and he was "embarrased" by my smell.

He told me that he hated every morning when I tied his school tie as my hands made him feel physically sick and that he would hold his breathe.

All of these things I have only just learnt in the past week. On the plus side I have had numerous cuddles and hugs from him this week, he does not shy away from me ( I thought it was just him not being 'cuddly' but the truth is I stunk enough that my baby couldn't bear to hug me) Mr Nic will NOT keep me from hugging my baby boy xxx

( baby at 11...?!! arrhhh well he will always be my baby.. I am 36 and still my dad's 'baby' !!


ah well he will always be my baby.. I am 36 and still my dad's 'baby' !!

What a lovelly quote there Nikki and i have to agree that there never to old to still be our baby as we are for our Dads too.

I also agree about the smell etc it was always in my mind that i must have smelt bad but i could not stop or so i thought but 10 weeks in and i am glad that now i know i can kiss and hug my kids and my OH and not smell like a dirty ashtray anymore.

Good luck Hun xx


Well done on your week in. It's a great mile stone that one. I also used to smoke outside and would stays back from the kids a bit after smoking. Haven't had to do that for almost 3 mths now and it is great.

You're doing well, just keep on going and stay strong.



keep going it does get easier. I could not imagine smoking ever again in my life & i was the queen of roll ups, i could smoke all day & all night, just loved my smoking to death (literally would have been the case) but i stopeed dead no NRT nothing at all just will power alone & have remained positive ever since :cool: keep a positive mind & know that this will pass!! well done to you both.
