Day 20!!

Hiya :)

It's hard to believe that exactly 3 weeks ago I was chaining for all I was worth 'cos I was so terrified of quitting - and it really has settled down a lot which is fab!! Can't believe I was so tempted yesterday morning too 'cos I'm not now!!

It's the windy weekend, and wind scares the heck out of me - but I'm so much less bothered than I was before Christmas, it's amazing :D

I genuinely believed that smoking calmed me down but clearly it didn't - but rhodiola does!!

Anyway the cough that has been coming and going is now definitely coming :eek: am sounding wheezy and I can feel things moving about in my lungs so 30-odd fags a day worth of tar is on the move :eek:

So £241 saved :cool:

5.27g tar not inhaled :eek:

585 fags (and the rest) not smoked!!

    Hey Gemma :)

    Very well done on getting to 3 full weeks quit :) You know you have come a long way when you get those craves and they turn to disgust so quickly. Bet you never thought smoking would disgust you before you quit!

    Glad you are coping with the anxious times better. You know now that smoking never calmed you down. In times of stress the old you feels like a fag helps you to cope, but all it does is raise the stress and anxiety levels.

    You are doing a sterling job at making this quit stick!

    Keep up the good work Gemma, and see you in week 4 :)

  • Well done Gem, Well done!

    You are just a superstar hun - be proud xx

  • Well done, G.

    I'm up to 1000 now...that's a f**kin' lot of poison 'purposefully rejected'.

    :)

  • Sorry guys got to catch up!!

    Gemma Lou We love you!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D

    There will be tough days;

    You will have to fight on those days :rolleyes:

    But the sure and certain knowledge that so many of your friends here want you to succeed so much,and the knowledge that you are making yourself in all ways a better,healthier,happier sweeter smelling young lady and all the rest-this will sustain you and propel you Hell YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxx :p

    Oooh yes!! Know there's tough stuff still coming :eek: but it will be worth it in the end :)

    YAY thanks!!

    Oooh you're right, I've quit before and gone through phases of hating it but have always been a smoker mentally until now - and that's changed which is fab!!

    It's just tricky to get through the withdrawal bit and readjust my brain to not having that "friend" to lean on, but i *will* do it and will get there!!

    Gem honey you are a star look how far u have come. Hope u are tied down dont want u blown away by the wind. X

    Lol thanks!! It ended up not being anywhere near as bad as they said so it was OK - could have gone out *grrrr* but wasn't really in the mood anyway.

    And another smoke free day ticked off :D

  • Well done Gem, Well done!

    You are just a superstar hun - be proud xx
