Every day is a little easier :)

Good morning guys,

How are we all?

Just thought I'd check in, as I'm finding less and less need to be here at the moment. I still WANT to be here (of course! :)), but I don't feel an urgency to be logged on at all times, like I used to.

I hope you all had a good weekend. I seemed to manage fine and even said no to my e-cigarette last thing on Friday night when I was tispy, so I think it's going okay! The constant rain yesterday morning made me feel happy that I didn't need to force myself out there for a cancer stick.

And, while watching The Hobbit last night, my boyfriend kindly commented on how nice my breath smells now, which is always a bonus! I don't think I really paid much attention to it as a smoker. Also, Because he is a part time smoker anyway, I don't think he really felt he should comment on it before. :rolleyes:

I still feel a bit like I'm going to fail eventually, which is weird. I suppose the thought that I'm punishing myself is still there in the back of my mind, but it's certainly easier to push negative thoughts away now. It's just a question of staying positive and talking myself down really.

Anyway, I hope you've all had a great weekend and are holding onto your quits with determination!! :D xxx

punishing yourself? For what ? Freeing yourself of nicotine and all it brings with it? oh, i know, having that extra cash to treat your self with!! You have had some really trying and testing times but you have got through them! Stay positive;)

Anyway, I did have a good weekend thank you, daughter and son in law come over for roast lamb- just thinking about it now -can't remember the last time a roast dinner tasted that good:D

Glad that you too had a lovely weekend and hope the rest of your week goes brilliantly xxx

Good girl Sarah

Was worried you might have crumbled lately but no :D

Like Trea says-Punish yourself?PUNISH YOURSELF?? How in God's name do you make that out? :eek:

You would be punishing yourself by making your throat and lungs endure boiling poisonous fumes 20 times a day,you are being so so so so kind by NOT doing that.Get yer head in the right place here Miss!!!!:D x

I know Maximus :D It will come, I'm sure. xxx

Thanks hun :)

You make a valid point. Lol

I'm starting the gym this week, which should help to motivate me. I'm hoping that I might feel a difference in my chest, as this will definately spur me on.

I've read on here that quite a few people changed diets and added exercise into their routine when they began to feel the health benefits of not smoking, so it's time to push myself a little I think (also, these sweeties are starting to have an effect on my hips!).

Ooh GO SARAH :D

You really will notice a difference, not that long after I quit my breathing got so much better when i exercised and I stopped making excuses for being slower or panting 'cos I wasnt!! Think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Really should do something about the effects of all that lasagne before long - am not buying any bigger clothes so there :p xxx

How can a Police car remind you of me?:cool:

Was the driver unusually rugged,good looking and suave?

That was me then.but..

I am not a Police car after all.

Do I see an Office dogsbody and therefore think of you? (hmm well I do actually...:p)

Lol, only 'cos you're a copper!!

Didn't see the driver 'cos it was just in the car park

And LOL
