  • Hi Shelley

    I'd love to try that - but I have a really dodgy back, so prob not a good idea for me. :(

    I think it's a fab idea for some planned or impromptu exercise, especially for dealing with craves. But you do realise that, in a couple of weeks, instead of the dreaded nictotine, you'll be addicted to swirling and thrusting your hips! :eek: Steady on ... LOL. ;)

    Enjoy and have fun. Stay strong, you're doing so well and advising others For one reason or another, I've only managed to find time to read in the last couple of weeks, but not reply or post, sorry bout that.

    Husband H is jet washing the patio, so I'm pretending to amend the Tesco online shop for delivery tomorrow!! Poor begger has amused himself for hours and hours over the last few weeks whilst I've been on here reading and typing, so I'm trying to give him some time too!

    Keep on keeping on, doing what you're doing, onwards and upwards :D

  • PS - the sleep thing is pants. Me too - still!

  • OMG, I really do need to engage brain and slow down! I've just realised my first reply makes DH sound selfish and unsupportive, which he most certainly isn't / hasn't been. He's been an absolute rock, with patience beyond what I could ever display and I can't believe he hasn't started divorce proceedings due to my seriously evil behaviour at times during the quit! :eek:

    Methinks ... stop ... glass of wine, prepare light dinner, slouch in front of TV with OH, try to catch up on posts tomorrow when not so knackered ... :D

You are doing great Shelley, I am in awe of you for sticking with this quit given all that you have been through. You really deserve a pat on the back. I hope you are gonna treat your self with the money you have saved not buying tobacco...... Oh no I forgot you are now spending it on food aren't you???? Have a lovely evening and cook yourself something nice and keep posting and cheering me up.:)

    Iv not really saved any tbh.. I smoked roll ups and only got 100g a month and that only cost me 13 quid as I used to get it cheap..

    I know what you mean. It is difficult because you dont feel like you can say anything to someone who is not only your elder but your grandma. That is sad about your grandad. I dont know what it is but my uncle said he was never as ill as he was when he stopped smoking, but what really happened was he was going to be very ill anyway, and he had to give up, but he left it too late

  • awwww shucks. You all are going to embarrass me :o

    My grandad was diebetic and was told loads of to times about smoking and drinking.. Iv said to my nan he had the problems b4 he gave up it just masked most of um.. And he was back to smoking after he had his first leg off.., remember being really annoyed with him at the time.. Like u said I Carnt tell um tho they no best.. Lol..
