No Smoking Day

Day 29. Whew!!

Well I never thought I'd reach this far, especially after the stress of the past few days. There were times when I almost picked up a ciggy but I realised It wouldn't change things and any relief I'd have got from a ciggy would last maybe 5minutes tops and then I would be hooked once again. So I did it albeit by the skin of my teeth.

As I said in my last post my wife has started smoking again albeit only 3 a day. I can't blame her as she is confined to a wheelchair and is severely disabled so her life is restricted to sitting immobile in that damn chair. If I were in her position God knows how I would handle It , smoking would probably be the tip of a self destructive iceberg.

Strangely although I now smell the smoke and watch her puffing on the weed it doesn't bother me, as I don't have the desire to smoke the darned things, so maybe in a strange way it has helped me.

So hats of to all of you you've got me through this far. Hope you are all well .love Jonno.

Well done Jonno, it takes a superman not to smoke with all the stress you're going through and you're managing - that's excellent!!

You're right, smoking won't change anything it'll just get you back hooked.


Good on ya Jonno you're doing sooo well! :-)


Thanks all

Well, I made it day 30 thanks to all of the wonderful people here. Never thought it was possible. 40 yrs of smoking and here I am smoke free. Wish we could all meet up and have a smoke free rave. Well I'm sitting here in my living room having a celebration strong lager, so here's cheers to you all. Bless you. Love Jonno
