Sunny Saturday

Hey guys,

Just checking in. How is everyone?

I'm loving being a non-smoker (even when the sun is shining and I'm sat in a beer garden ;)) and hope you all are too! Only four and a half months on I can no longer relate in the same way to that person who worried so much about stopping. I convinced myself so many times that I wouldn't be able to last a week without a cigarette and here I am! :rolleyes::D

I hope you guys are all as proud of yourselves as I am of me and, for any newbies or smokers who are scared of stopping for good, it gets a whole lot easier very quickly. It is so worth any pain and suffering (which you may not even experience) in those first few weeks. Stay positive and remember that your body will be thanking you every single day that you stay smoke free!! :)

Hope you all have a great weekend (can't wait to get my sun lounger out in the garden!) and I'll speak to you soon xxx

    OMG Max, I have been eating two a day of these since I quit smoking, I never liked the taste when I was smoking, but I love them now.:D

    We'll all probably have those moments hun, but they must get less the longer we go :)

  • Oh absolutely they get less, not thought about cigs for ages, its just the "summer trigger again!

    We've had such lousy weather, it's still new not to have a fag in the sunshine!!

    Had a bit of a wobble this afternoon 'cos one of my friends was smoking and she looked like she was loving it. I *really* wanted one then :/

    *But* we know it's an illusion :)

    Hopefully soon, Nic will bugger off and leave us alone!!

  • Aye it'll pass. Hopefully :-/

  • It has to!!

    If it doesn't I'm either going to be sectioned or smoking :p

  • Haha I know! The annoying thing is I've not thought about it for weeks!!

    Can't say the same - have got dangerously close to caving several times in the last month but isn't it annoying that Nic won't sling his hook?

    But heck, we both beat it and that's fab!!

  • Its that complacency stage innit - you know the, I've cracked it now so I can have one kinda thing! Grrrrrr!

  • Yeah I like her signature too Max, its very true! By god I don't want to be back at day one!
