On Day 20 and I am currently indulging on one of my idle past times - surfing the net, drinking a cheeky rose and singing along to my favourite songs. In the past, i would have smoked a fair few as I went along, but now all I have is my patch and my inhalator, for those moments when it feels impossible.
A couple of things that really resonated with me when i was heading towards my quit: Firstly, I have two cats who I adore. I have had cats in the past but these two are replacement babies since my daughter left home. The idea that my 'habit' hurt them really stuch with me. We had rodents throughout my daughter's childhood and all of them died of tumours. I wonder why......
The second reason - those of you in the UK will understand this one. Have you noticed how deep Deidre Barlow's voice has become? I coudl feel that happening to me, my voice was lower and i didn't like it. Now, i can't sing, but i like to, and i love nothing more than belting out to my favourite songs, but i have found in recent years that it's getting harder and harder to keep up. In the past couple of weeks - i can sing far, far better.
I like that
