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.

Glad to see that you are still doing well Lingy :)

Glad that you enjoyed your holiday :D



you are doing really well :)


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.
