Penny has dropped!

Into day 12, Have managed to get rid of all chocolates from Christmas!

I started back at the gym yesterday and I really enjoyed it, I was channelling My inner nonsmoking goddess!!!

Have at times been having niggling non virtuous thoughts.....

But as pumping some iron I came to the conclusion:

I don't smell like an ashtray

I am surprisingly less grumpy!

I have saved nearly 50 pounds!

I haven't smoked 119 cigarettes

I have become more organised because I have more time!!

I don't feel like shit!

Vanity reasons.... My panda eyes are soo much better!!

And then the only reason why I wanted to smoke ( in a whiny voice)

Cause I want one - kind of a lame excuse!

Come on fellower quitters!! - we've got this!

We will be richer! We will be healthy! We are on are way to being bloody fantastic and smoke free!!!!!

Oh that's fantastic Wooders!! You're doing brilliantly and now you're thinking like that it's great :cool:

Have noticed that I'm a lot calmer than when I smoked - odd 'cos I always thought it calmed me down, and my panda eyes have gone too!

Have not smoked nearly 600 fags :eek:

Which works out to £240 'cos they've got up again!

Saved a few quid in body spray too 'cos I don't need to squirt myself after having a fag :p

It's great to hear you sounding so positive, am sure you're going to do it!!

Nutmeg ..... I ate them!!!!! Well put the few left over in the bin after an overdose last night woops!!!

Im sooo hungry all the time!!!! Did you feel like this when you first gave up?

Hit the gym today and yesterday ( haven't been since before Christmas)

I hurt!!!!!

But I'm having a good day today, I think I might need to reduce the minis and inhalator usage as now worried I'm swapping fags for them, have u used nrt at all? And if so when do you think I should start reducing my intake?

Thankyou for your encouraging MSG and huge pat on the back and congrats for doing so well in your quit, welldone you xx

Hey Woods

When I smoked I was very in favour of cigs over food, although I am a foodie, does that make sense? So yes, I am now eating more then ever, (and needed) Healthy appetite resumed, and a few stone gained in 4 months!! However, addressing weight/excerise issues now!

I stopped smoking using patches, loved them, although they caused insomnia and dreams, god I was busy all night, robbing banks and everything!! So, gradually reduced strengh, no patches now but always carry inhalator just in case although have seldom used. Thankfully normal sleeping resumed.

My advice, don't fret about NRT, you'll just know when the times right to decrease.
