Hi all, I've now successfully completed 50 days of not smoking!!! How fantastic is that! It was touch and go at one point today when my mum took me round Ikea backwards then I had to go through it all again in the right direction to get out again - my poor mum was gasping for a fag by the time we'd finished and I could have easily faltered if I'd wanted to but I didn't.
I have booked a weekend away for myself, my bestfriend and our kids with some of the money I've not spent on stinky death delivery systems!
It's only 2 nights at Pontins but it'll be a good laugh and more importantly it's more nice memories for my kids - it beats the hell out of standing in the cold smoking!!!!
A note for any new quitters reading this.....
The first few days of quitting are long and arduous for some people, some people get by hour by hour and find getting to the end of a week has felt like months. If you are struggling try to keep telling yourself that it really does get easier and soon the days will be flying by and before you know it you'll be counting your quit time in months!
Stay positive about your quit because the benefits are endless!
