Nice in here isn't it? :D

Hi :D

Well last night at bedtime was 1 calendar month since I put out my last stinky fag (in the cold and damp - nice way to remember my smoking life) so I guess I'm into Month 2 now!!

Am a bit bruised and battered on the way and have had my moments but it's so good to have got another milestone under my belt :cool:

So that's *at least* 625 fags not smoked (am saying at least 'cos I've realised that there were so many times I smoked "more than usual" and there's been Christmas inbetween) and at least £256 saved :cool:

Here's to another smoke free month and a big thank you to everyone on here who helped me through my low points - it really would have been touch and go without you!! ❤❤

    Yes I've had a bit of a shopping spree with the money I've saved - it really brings it home when I've got new clothes and shoes from money I would have just wasted without thinking twice. x

    I'm trying to catch up with you Gemma lou ;) 2 weeks today for me,better not stumble or I will be right on you! Month must feel pretty good :cool:

    You're doing brilliantly Max!!

    2 weeks is a fab start, and it definitely gets much better and easier with more time! Am feeling really pleased with myself seeing all the milestones come up ツ

    Woohoo Gemma, well done you! It feels pretty awesome doesn't it when you reach all the milestones...keep walking on that road forward (signposted penthouse), you can do it!!

    Thanks Karen!

    Yes it's fab to watch the time on my quit smoking app go up and up and now in my second month I actually *feel* like a non-smoker!

    Know it's still early, and I still get craves *but* I really don't want to smoke any more - and the smell of smoke makes me feel a bit sick!

    This quit is definitely very different to my last one - then I did it 'cos I was ill, then nagged into it but now it's 'cos I want to do it for myself.

    Had a few drinks with my friends last night at one of their houses, and did get a crave but it was weaker than before and I didn't give in!!

  • Freedom :D

    It was really foul weather yesterday, cold and raining off and on most of the afternoon so I curled up inside with the TV and did some internet shopping :D

    Spending the money I've saved on ciggies too.

    Anyway it hit me part way through the afternoon that quitting has made me free!! Just over a month ago I'd have been grumbling and going outside for a smoke in the wet and getting pitying looks for doing it - was the only smoker in the house - but now I can spend time doing what I want without worrying about how I'm going to get my next fag in. Lol, now I'm the one feeling sorry for smokers!!

    Am really loving this - it's a fab feeling :D
