Day 1 Week 2

:oHi Everyone,

Well after getting over my shock of weighting myself last night and realising I have gained 5lbs in my first week of quitting, I am still not smoking. How good am I ?????

Instead of eating sugerfree mints and lolly's I have now bought loads of fruit ie grapes, banana's strawberrys so that hopefully will keep me from raiding the fridge and buscuit tin which I have obviously done loads more of without even realising it.

I have decided to cut my champix dose down from two tablets a day to one because I seem to be over the worst of the cravings so I will see how that goes. I dont really want to be on them too long anyway, This will be my 3rd week on them and if I cut it down to one a day the nausea might ease abit as well. I dont think I could have intially done it without them though.

I was thinking today while I was on my day off, I went out in the car (I didnt ever smoke in my car), Tesco (cant smoke) Cafe (cant smoke) Next (cant smoke) (boots) cant smoke, my point is "how did I fit in smoking" you cant smoke anywhere and unless you want soaked with rain and blown away with the wind that is the smokers option's now.

I definately think because of the smoking ban it is easier to do this, if people are smoking where ever you are I think I would be so much harder.

So for today I am remaining postitive because I havent went out and bought a packet of ciggies and said "stuff this" because I have gained weight (so felt like it last night though on the damn scales) My jeans are defo tighter, my tummy is sticking out more as well but I feel I have came this far and can't give up my quit just because I have not noticed me stuffing my face with the wrong things sooner.

Hope you are all doing ok today.

Yay Linda, good for you.

Your weight will soon settle down and you have switched your foods early on in your quit which can't fail to help.

A smoker can always find time to smoke whatever the weather but it does make you wonder doesn't it. You don't need to worry about that ever again now though ;)
