Day 8

Day 8 nothing to report much the same. Trained on weights earlier a lot more energy, not training again while thursday just wondering what to do after work tomorrow maybe go for a walk, or might even go swimming ? feels a bit weird going to the swimming baths on myself and just getting in and doing about 8 length and some oldie at side me doing about 100 lengths big headed git. so slightly apprehensive about going:o .

Good attitude Deano.

For what it's worth it is actually easier now the smoking ban is in place - my last serious quit attempt was about 6 years ago and I literally had to stop going to pubs I found it so hard.

I've battled through 5 weekends so far on this quit and all the time I'm inside it hasn't bothered me, but when the weather's nice and you stand outside in the evening and there are smokers around you it can get a little painful.

Good luck pal, positive thoughts only !

Deano, don't know if you are using NRT or not but I found the wee mini lozenges an absolute Godsend when I had my first beer as a non-smoker last week. They really staved off the bad cravings and got me through the night. Although in saying that because I wasn't smoking, I was drinking like there was no tomorrow and ended up paralytic :eek:
