5months today!

Hello fellow freedom fighters!

Well 5 months ago I decided to stop smoking, for health and finacial reasons. I was smoking 20 a day every day, possibly more at the weekend.

I have no intentions of having one cig ever again, I went through the Christmas festivities, I have had some challenges and managed to get through smoke free!

I went cold turkey-first three weeks were, well, lets say...not easy! I still 'crave' but the feeling goes quite quickly-Its' the mornings for me!

I have saved £1350, my lungs feel great! I haven't put on weight, infact I have lost 4 pounds-as I have monitored my calorie intake carefully-sticking to healthy snacks.

It hasn't been easy, and anyone who tells you it is-are either lying or psychopaths (joke) I remain focused, never become too complacent and the fight still goes on-but every day it gets easier.

I smell of Chanel Nos 5 rather than stale a woman should do!

-the money I have saved has just paid for my trip to Croatia :D

stay strong my lovelies-It is worth it...I am now leaving to move into the next room xxx
