Nearly into week 3

Day 13 and me and OH are still going strong. A few times we have had a thought but they go very quickly. As I haven,t been on here for a week thought I would make sure you all know we are still on track. Also having a lovely break away.

Well done to all those who are still smoke free and good luck to any newbies just starting out. It is a battle but well worth it. Will post next time I can get on the net.

  • for many people, an important aspect of

    quitting smoking is to find alternate ways to

    handle these difficult feelings without smoking.

    Even when cigarettes are no longer a part of

    your life, the painful and unpleasant feelings that

    may have prompted you to smoke in the past

    will still remain. So, it’s worth spending some

    time thinking about the different ways you

    intend to deal with stressful situations and the

    daily irritations that would normally have you

    reaching for a cigarette.

  • Have you totter up the savings yet? It's a real nice surprise! I spent mine on Christmas booze....time to find an AA forum

  • Thumbs up to both of you ;)

  • Weight gain is a common concern when quitting

    smoking. While it’s true that many smokers put

    on weight when they stop smoking, the gain is

    usually small, on average 3-5 pounds. Weight

    gain occurs because the oral gratification of

    smoking is replaced by the self-soothing

    mechanism of eating. To maintain a healthy

    weight, it’s important to find other, healthy ways

    to deal with stress and other unpleasant feelings

    rather than mindless eating. Eating a healthy

    diet and staying active can help you maintain

    your current weight.

  • Yes,It's a real nice surprise!

  • Well done Lingy and Mr Lingy! And hope that you had a great holiday with no temptations.
