Day 8 and feeling great!

Managed to get through a week of working from home, and a drunken night out with pals, without hardly wanting and definetly not having a fag. Feel pretty good, and confident that I have smoked my last cigarette.

Positives:

- More Energy

- Have stopped coughing everytime I wake up.

- No stinking breath or fingers.

- Have saved about £32.

- Have played my guitar a lot more (I pick it up for 5 mins whenever I think about smoking).

- My missus has stopped telling me a stink everytime I return after a smoke.

- I feel I have achieved something.

- I generally feel a lot more healthy and have stopped worrying that I'm likely to end up having a heart attack or getting a serious illness (both my parents died in their 60's - mum last November - from cancer, so think I was becoming a hypochondriac).

Negatives:

None - it's great being a non-smoker.

Roll on the next 7 days and good luck to everyone else who has quit!

Yey well done, you deserve a pat on the back :D

It is def better being a non-smoker! You are over the hardest part now so as long as you keep yourself occupied you will do great!

Well done again!

The mention of your guitar has just given me an idea............ i have a harmonica somewhere that i bought years ago (meaning to learn to play it but never did), time to dig it out as that'll give me something to do with my mouth and hands with a specific goal.

Oh by the way, well done on reaching eight and great

CamperPete,

Good idea on the harmonica. Everyone is different of course, but I found my guitar to be a good distraction so would be good to learn a new skill and take your mind off the smokes at the same time. Double positive. I've a couple of harmonica's myself (but never learnt to play them well), so may join you this week and give the guitar a break!
