I haven't posted for a few days, I thought I would give you all a rest from my daily updates!
Well here we are at day 21 and things are getting much easier. Haven't been craving so that is good. To be honest I have been really busy with work and doing stuff at home in the evenings so I haven't had time to think about smoking
This time last week however I was really suffering with craves, I knew I wouldn't smoke, but it was driving me mental. I am sure there are others out there feeling the same way, so my humble advice is to dig deep, get busy with something to take your mind off the crave, remember what made you want to give up in the first place and push on through. You will make it, it is only temporary and having a smoke is NOT the answer.
What a difference a week makes! I feel so positive and energized at the mo. I have started on a diet to kick a few (well quite a few) pounds. I gained weight during my last quit which I never got rid of, so I'm hammering it now. I have started losing already and feel great. I am also finding that focusing on the diet is a good distraction. Thinking about calories is better than thinking about smoking (or I may just be a masochist!) Anyway I am really getting a kick out of being healthy and doing something good to my body. I turn 40 this year (where the hell did all those years go!!!) so I think I have finally realized that I need to look after myself as I don't want to have serious health problems which I could have prevented.
So here we go into week 4, good luck to all quitters new and old, and keep on keeping on!
