Week 7

Well "it's been wobbly" is probably the best way to describe the last 49 days of my life, but I've made it to week 7 and am finally feeling optimistic and positive about my freedom from those evil little mosters, thanks to you guys :)

I have a way to go yet, but am very proud of myself for overcoming hurdles that have probably been the downfall of many other attempted quits.

Today I feel stronger and, though the doubt and fear are still here, know that I can get through the next seven weeks as well.

After all, I'm only helping myself. It may seem as though I'm being punished at the time, but hindsight helps me to understand that it's just another mental win for me :p

Thank you all so so much for all of your help and kind words. They mean a great deal and it helps to know you're not alone when things seem really tough.

Here's to the next seven weeks! :D

  • Great to see such a positive attitude hon, yes you WILL get through, because you CAN and having hit some obstacles and overcome them you now KNOW YOU CAN!!! Well done sweets, you just keep on keeping on, press on through the tough times and enjoy the easy times and watch those milestones clock up!:D

    I think I'm due some easy times :)

    I've done the hard part. I just need to STAY POSITIVE. :cool:

    Sometimes easier than others, but I may as well keep trying!

    Thanks Kat xxx

  • Woohoo positive Sarah is back :D

    You've had a tough quit, but you are a very strong woman and I know that you'll make it, even if we all have to drag you there :p

    Keep saying "I won't smoke today" and remind yourself what a fab thing you'r doing to yourself (through gritted teeth if need be, lol) and before long you'll feel flipping fantastic!!

    And well done for getting through last night smoke free xxx

    Haha! I'm sure "with gritted teeth" will still apply in the near future, but I'm not the only one and you helped to remind me last night that, at one stage or another, a lot of strong minded people have also felt this exact same way at one time or another throughout their quit.

    I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE! :)

    And anyway, all this tie spent wallowing means that I'm not having fun! Doesn't make sense, does it? xxx

    Exactly, you're not punishing yourself you're freeing yourself. It's raining here, and if I wasn't free would have been out in that getting wet, making my coat (which smells of lovely perfume :D ) stink of fags and rain and then be doing it all again in about 40 mins. Not much of a treat that is it?

    Enjoy your freedom - and your extra cash too :D xxx

    If someone said they'd make you healthier and give you £150-odd 7 weeks ago, you'd have been thrilled!! xxx
