Still battling on

Haven't posted for a while so thought I would let you know I am still battling on with my quit. I have had some strange moments, last week whilst out with my mates I started rummaging through my handbag looking for my cigs. Blind panic set in for a few moments before I remembered I don't smoke now. Why I forgot I have no idea, another time I woke up in the middle of the night with a massive crave, never smoked a cig during the night so that was strange. I have laughed about it all since but it has made me realise I have to keep my guard up and not get complacent. In 12 days time I will be 6 months quit, not about to give in now. Otherwise I am feeling great. Can swim 80 to 100 lengths in my pool without needing an oxygen tank on my back, (it's only a small pool, 8 metres long) but I could never have done that before, about 20 lengths was my limit without puffing and panting.

Jeannie Not Battling Wacking The nicotine monster into submission

jeannie you go girl you have the monster well under control now. The health

benefits alone certainly make this quit a permanent fixture, I no myself the

extra oxygen pumping round my system certainly improves my lung capacity.

Dont get complacent now I have been there in the past, stopping is forever

now no surrender , we are no longer a slave to the nicotine monster I look

forward to seeing you you making the 6 month mark something I look forward

to doing myself soon


Have a large gin and tonic with ice and lemon please Kat. Looking forward to it
