:DHello All, Day 56 today - that's eight precious weeks of smoke freedom, seven and a bit weeks of "super" improved sense of smell and taste, eight weeks of saved up tobacco, tips and papers money saved that has so far paid for a hair do, two pairs of jeans, five tops and two pairs of shoes - with some to spare, five weeks of using my cross trainer for more than 20 mins without gasping for air, seven weeks of not needing my blue inhaler, eight weeks of not stinking like a chipped out dogend. I should also add that my left hand no longer gets pins and needles when I'm walking, funny how it never really bothered me until I noticed it no longer happened :confused: I have also started cooking more meals from scratch, with ingredients I wouldn't have used before, reason being;
1. I have the time, no need to keep nipping off for a fag or wasting half hour a day rolling my fags.
2. I can afford to buy a bottle of wine just for the slow braised breast of lamb with rosemary, garlic, mint and seasoning
3. I can taste and savour every single element and flavour.
So anyone just reading and wondering whether they should give Stoptober I try, I say go for it, you have nothing to lose and absolutely everything to gain just by saying NO to the Nic Demon
