Finally got here :)

Was pretty convinced I would not make it here :) So, it is with great pleasure I enter week 2!

I have started walking/running in the last few days, also helping a friend who cleans schools in the evenings for a bit of extra cash before I start my job (friend has depression and had a recent suicide attempt, so this way I can keep an eye on him and he feels he is helping me too!). My previous quit that was successful I replaced smoking with exercise (lost 40lbs in 6 months!), the other successful one was pregnancy - do not want a baby, so figured I would go the exercise route for now! Let's see how this works, I also need to improve my fitness as nursing and postural orthostatic tachycardia can SUCK and fitness will help!

    Superb progress iitg!

    A week under your belt is a very solid achievement which can be built on. You really are over the worst of it now in terms of breaking the physical addiction, you've just got to keep on doing what you've been doing this last week (or rather, keep on not doing what you've not been doing:)).

    From this point the battle is increasingly just a mind game. The demon in your head is still there to tempt you. If you ever think just one won't hurt, forget it, it will hurt, big time:eek: - accept this as an absolute fact, remember 'Not One Puff Ever' and you cannot fail!
