Hello all

its day 24 - am still struggling with physical symptoms (?) - not sure they are symptoms as such - try to think of it as my body getting its own back for years of abuse

but mentally am in a strong place - was not even tempted when at a friends house for dinner on saturday night and was one of only 2 non-smokers in a party of 6

also pleased to announce that my husband has been to his GP's smoking clinic and will be starting taking champix from next Monday

it has actually helped that he has smoked over the past 3 weeks as its proved to me my own resolve + the smell of it on him has reminded me that I dont want to go back there.

But its now time for him to join me

Hope everyone else is doing well - and i hope the sun is shning for you today as it is where i am

one month next week - time flies !!

    Wow, well done Maz. You seem so confident and so you should be! :)

    Glad to hear that your husband will be joining you. My other half also smokes (though, not full time) and, while it's been difficult at times, it has reminded me of why I don't want to smoke anymore (the smell, the expense, despairing when you run out after all shops are closed etc).

    I hope you're really proud and are looking forward to your one month mark! x

  • Thanks ladies,

    I have read on here about how other people have tried and failed to quit before, but somehow they knew the quit they were on was different.

    Thats how I feel - its no longer about how long i will last this time and really whats the point as i'm going to fail anyway - to hey, maybe just maybe, I will never have to smoke again

    And that is no longer a scary feeling but a bl**dy great feeling:)
