Message to newbies and notso newbie

Day 170:

To all the newbies out there:

Welcome to the forum and Good luck with your quit.

From day 1 take responsibility for your quit, own it and look after it, its yours.

Get yourself informed, understand whats likely to happen to you and your body. Many

forum users have links to other websites or articles that are useful, read them, read them

all and when you've finished reading. Read some more! 9 times out 10 whatever you are going through,

someone will already have posted a similar experience on this forum.

Get a hobby, start an exercise plan.

For the cravings, take deep breaths and maybe drink some water.

Be positive and really "want it"

Take it one day at a time

PS - Show a sense of humour and join in with the banter :)
