  • well done on getting to day 17 your doing so well :)

    because i dont need to go to the kiosk anymore i keep forgetting to get my lottery tickets :eek: as that was part of the habit baccy and lottery :rolleyes: so in theory i could be a millionaire if i still smoked

    but then again i have saved money by not buying them and feeling peed of when ive not won :p

  • Yea well done!

    I've had some moments like that. Actually going to Tesco was a major problem for me when I originally quit, because I always followed up the shopping by passing the ciggie counter and buying some. Felt strange to walk right on by for the first week or so :p.

    Hi mumi76

    Huge congrats to you

    As a treat for doing so well , how about a treat of a facial or a do it yourself if you prefer?

    Could help make you feel a little more radient. Also remember to drink lots of fluids, especially water and fruit juice, these will help your skin too.

    Again well done to you.

  • WTG what an amazing achievement and just so you know my skin looks amazing compared to what it did when i smoked i am constantly getting compliments and my face isnt grey??? i thought thats what colour faces were without make-up lol.

    keep up the good work

    never quit quitting

    i have avoided the local shop until yesterday when i had to go , as i got to the counter the guy serving automiticaly asked me if i wanted a packet of 20... it was actually really disapointing to be recognised as a smoker! i said no i have given up . which actually felt like an achievement in itself,,, a bit nuts and berries that confession but there you go.. off to man up as they say :)

  • it was actually really disapointing to be recognised as a smoker!

    The owner of my local offy (beer shop) always asks how I'm doing with the quit.

    I often have to get ciggies for the OH when I'm getting beer/voddie and always say '20 sovereign - for the wife!!!' and always feel a bit guilty even though I'm not going to smoke any!!!

  • Day 17 for me too :). Feel high as a kite, dancing in the kitchen, to the horror of my teenagers. Today is the first day that I have actually believed that life can be good without fags. Well done to everyone, we really are doing this!!!

  • day 17 for me too. I have struggles this evening though. We will get through this though.

    I keep forgetting i dont smoke too, when i go to my handbag to get my phone out, i keep looking for my fag packet, then i realise i dont have any in my bag because i dont smoke. Or ill be washing up or doing the ironing and think "ill have a fag after this" then remeber i dont smoke, i often feel crap when i remeber i dont smoke and i cant have one, but only for a few minutes, then i remeber all the reasons why i dont want to smoke. If that makes sense?
