5 months today, and that feels pretty good. Never thought I'd get here in a million years :o, but apart from the first few weeks, (oh and christmas and new year too) it's not been too bad. So I've put on nearly 2 stone :eek: but so what, I'm smoke free. I'm tackling the weight now and enrolled in SW a few weeks ago. Mum's doing ok ish at the moment, she's having an op to put permanent stents in today, and she should be home tomorrow. Hopefully they'll start the chemo next week. Mum becoming ill has made me more determined to stay a non smoker, and to loose weight (which is all on my tummy - this puts me at an increased risk of heart attack if I don't shift it). If I stay healthy, then hopefully my own kids will see me live to a ripe old age.
This forum has really helped me stay focussed on my quit. Thanks guys
