Day 33 - still here!

Hi folks,

Just letting you know I am still here and still on cold turkey and still haven't had a cig.

Have been away filming - as I said before, most of the crew smoke and I thought this would prove to be a problem, but I can stand next to them and it doesn't bother me. Walked down a corridor that really reeked of fags because the door was open and this made me think how lucky I was, not smoking any more.

I still get the odd craving now and then and probably will do so for some time to come, but I really deep down don't want one and do have to tell myself sometimes that I am no longer a smoker. However, my brain is saying that I am no longer a smoker and I have done this, this time.

I have added a new string to my tailoring bow - millinery - which keeps me busy and am now trying to lose the weight that I have really bounced on.

I am so proud of myself and everyone else who has quit, so WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good news indeed. Keep on keeping on!



Hey there pixie, there you are! well done gal


Thank you very much xxxxxxxxxxxx


Good job, Pixie. Cold Turkey isn't that bad. I started with the patch but after 2 weeks went CT and have never looked back. I have been smoke free for 33 days and loving every breath I can now take.

I truely think that after the first week or two it gets easier. I had a friend tell me that it takes 21 days to break a habit and that is what we are doing, right? I still reach for a fag once in a while. I don't want one, it is just the habit trying to get me to go back to the old ways...not me. I will never pick those things up again. I fought cancer and won (11 year survivour), I have COPD that will never leave me, the fags are not a friend of mine....they are killers and I do not plan on being a victim to them anymore....ppat



thats great to read :)

onwards and upwards is the only way to go
