Serious energy

I have been out for two 40 minute walks today, and am still feeling like I could do ALOT more... before I gave up I wasn't exercising at all because I have had compartment syndrome in my right leg and didn't want to start it off again... although the walks are painful, its giving me a real buzz. I would love to run, but I think I will have to build up my legs tolerance to exercise... I am sure that the energy I have is as a result of giving up the fags, and with a general easing of the cravings I am really feeling the positive effects of my quit now- its just ashame that the cost of food and other basics seem to have gone up massively since Xmas because I havent REALLY noticed the financial reward to be honest.

    Take some money and put it aside each day - just like you would have done for some fags! It sounds like you deserve a treat so take one even if its only a small one!!

    Well done too!

  • the weathers not helping its so nice outside and the fact the days are starting to stay lighter for longer makes all the difference

    making me feel guilty as i should do more exercise but cant walk far atm due to probs with my hip and knee :(

    i do know what you mean about prices going up :eek: especially petrol i suppose that does have some sort of knock on effect to everything else

  • Vicki, Helen's right, put some of the money you would have spent on smoking aside each day, at least for a month, then give yourself a treat. Let's face it, you would have found the money to smoke, so putting a little of it aside won't do any harm.

    Enjoy that lovely fresh air, Spring is just around the corner and it's lovely to watch the seasons change.
