17 days.. In the words of VM.. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!

Well, here I am at day 17. I have to say that it has been tough going and I am certainly not over the hill, but I have made it over the stile on the way to the hill! Don't get me wrong, I certainly still want the b*ggers but I know that it is just my mind playing tricks on me. I can't get over the fact that my mind conned me for so long. I also can't get over the fact that my hair is so clean all of the time! Herbal essences, I can actually smell you now. Yum. Hope you are all feeling positive and doing well. Am behind you all! :)

  • PS before any of you correct me, the correct title should have read 'I DON'T' believe it!!! I just realise that my quote was wrong, cringe!! :eek:

    Now that is brilliant - you *know* it's just a trick, and you're feeling the benefit of not smoking!!

    Keep that up and you'll be just fine :)

  • Thanks Gemma! How are you doing? I haven't had a chance to look at the forum for the last few days but have been thinking of you all!

    I'm getting there thanks :)

    Have felt really lousy - like i had flu or something - but it's not quite so bad now!!

    Nice to see you again!!

  • Mag your doing great! P.s what herbal essences? I love the light blue one with coconut in yummmm :D xx

  • Wow magwag, 17 days, almost 3 weeks there.

    Isn't it amazing how food tastes better and hair and clothes DON'T smell :D

    Well done, that is brilliant. x

    I have felt a bit fluey on an off (and also have had terrible constipation shhh!) - so I know how it feels, but we both know that that is better than the dreaded illnesses from smoking. So I say have lots of time in your pyjamas! x

    Ooh, the blue one is nice! I am on the pink one at the moment and it smells delish.

  • You are doing fantastic Mag never forget that. You have come so far and it will get easier. xxx

    Thanks Debbie, you are so supportive and I really appreciate that. I hope you are feeling ok x

  • Pleased to hear it, I am sure you will stay there! x

    Lol, I've got that too - but the retail box of Extra I had come today should sort that :p

    And yes you're right - smoking related illnesses are some of the worst, my app tells me how many people have died of smoking since i quit, it's scary.

    Have had to take a couple of days off sick 'cos it was so ropey, and had a PJ day today, but soon I'll be better than ever :D

    We're flipping fab!! x

  • We're flipping fab!! x

    Indeed we are!!!! :):):):)

  • Well done, you are doing great :)

    One of the things about not smoking is that you smell so much nicer :). I think my taste buds and sense of smell has changed too over the last couple of weeks. Seems better I think ...

    Good luck for the rest of week 3 :)

  • Well done Mag :)

    Best part of a month under your belt. That's fantastic!! :D

    You might find some foods you loved before you can't stand now and you like stuff you didn't before - it's odd!!

    Last time for me it was carrots, before that it was lager - this time, who knows :eek:

  • Well done Magwag. 17 days is brilliant :)
