A day 5 treat!

Hi all

I hope you are all well? :)

Struggled after tea tonight, ....... curry...had a strong crave after it. :(

Maybe this is a silly question but .... is it worse after spicy food?!?!?

Went to Kendal today with my wife and it seemed to go really well.

Driving for quite a while and wandering about the shops...

Mind you....its was "treat time"

I spent a silly amount on a new cycle!! :D

Won't be ready for a month or so but can't wait!!!

Like a kid at Christmas.

Has anybody else treated themselves to something nice yet?

Cheers

Greg

  • Oooh it is nice to treat yourself! I dont know about the spicy food as I dont do spicy but most people struggle after a meal in the early days.... Keep it going it just gets easier and easier.:)

  • Hi greg, yep I bought myself a spin bike which I love although not been able to go on it for 12 days as had man flu.

    Feeling a bit better now though so looking forward to getting back in the saddle on monday!!! Woo hooo!

  • I have been really sad today and going slightly mad, so I decided to do a spread sheet and work out savings, ciggies not smoked etc

    I am waiting to buy a new espresso machine and I should be able to afford he one I want by February.

    it's as good a reason as any not to smoke again....ever!

  • Hi Greg

    Wishing you all the best in your quit.

    Yes, thinking of a cig after a nice meal, well we all just know what that's like!

    It gets better though.

    And yes, I have deliberately used my no smoking money every week (I'm on week 6). So far, Ive treated myself to a nice top in a shop where I usually can't afford! I've bought a teeth whitening voucher. Vax Steam Cleaners, paid for my hard up Student sons Road Tax, Oh and a partridge in a pear tree.

    Bet you wish you'd never asked!!!!

  • My word!

    Oops!

    Sorry :o

    Should have been titled a day 4 treat!

    I'm losing track of time already....maybe that's a good thing! :)

    Good post! I've decided to save half my monthly ciggy spend and treat myself to a nice watch when I reach 1 year quit. Never really felt justified spending money on myself like that. It's funny considering how much I've spent ruining my health.

    I went out for a curry on the night of day 1, the thought of a smoke after the meal gave me butterfly's but it didn't last more than a minute. I guess the champix damps down most of my real cravings though??

    Congrats on day 5, and making it through the weekend!!!!

  • Keep it going, Greg...you seem to be doing really well...smoke after a curry was sort of mandatory for me...so know what you went through...stay strong.....I suffered a bit today but determined to make it into week 2 tomorrow.
