Day 10 has began!!

Double digits have been reached in the quest for freedom!!

I feel strangely different in this quit, I'm actually believing in myself, that I can and am doing this. There is a significant sea-change in my mindset. Possibly the part that I am enjoying the most is the reduction in thinking about cigarettes!! I'm now going through relatively long (in comparison to days 1-5) periods and then thinking 'wow, I haven't thought of smoking for a couple of hours'. I love that it is not dominating my every waking moment.

The tight chest is easing up, still there but I think as my anixeity levels are dropping as is the tightness.

The money in the pocket is amazing, it's not just the fags that you were buying, it was the other crap aswell - I work from home and now have not been to my local shop for the last week. By the time the summer comes, I will essentially have a free holiday that I would have flicked and puffed away if I was still smoking.

This is the one people, I'm not going to lose this journey to freedom, not now I can feel the grip of the smoking kidnapper's chains loosening!!

Sorry, if there are mistakes in here- typing on my iPhone!!!

Hope everyone is good and strong in their quits!!?

  • Chris, very perceptive - self belief is so important in this. Nice one fella, great to have you back and you'll need about 2.5k for the next lions tour from what I can see if you fancy it! Steel the mind, it would be a great reward which I think from your last couple of posts you're on course for now, nice work!!
