Just want to put down how good I'm feeling!!
Know I've had one or 2 Mexican standoffs and very low points, whick you lovely people dragged me through so want to say something nice and positive instead!!
Anyway, how am I feeling?
OK it might sound daft to a never-smoker but I'm proud that despite being one of those smokers who most people thought would never quit, I have done it and it feels good!! Not counting my chickens, but I do think this is the one for me!!
This morning was a trigger for me, I thought about it and all by myself dismissed the idea of smoking - second time this week. I do *not* need to rely on a smelly stick of dried leaves to function!!
I can wake up early, and not have to get into my dressing gown and shiver on the back step - oh no I can relax, snooze, curl up in the cosy instead!!
Am slightly amazed that I allowed myself to be controlled for so long :eek:
Wealthier - I'm saving a small fortune here, just by *not* doing something. 6 weeks ago if someone had given me £462 I'd have been thrilled but i gave myself that.
On top of that, I smell nice, my breath doesn't smell of ciggies, nor do my clothes and hair, am going to live longer, look young for longer, stay fitter - it's all good at the mo!!
Something clicked for me before I quit, whatever it was, it's brilliant
So, anyone who's thinking about quitting all I can say is do it there's some rough patches along the way but you won't regret it!!
