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 :)

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

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

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 :)

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:
