Day 47 - better!!

Hiya, well first off thanks yet again to all the lovely people who have helped me over the past couple of days. it's amazing that there's so many genuine, lovely people who care so much!!

It's been pretty hellish, and without you guys, I'd definitely be smoking now. :eek: Not because I want to - believe me that's the last thing I want (or I'd be doing it) but because the feeling that there's no alternative is absolutely overwhelming and terrifying. :(

But I'm not. And I won't smoke today either!!

Am feeling a lot better - it's sunny, which definitely helps, and the weekend too :D

Was doing the shopping this morning, and it hit me at the checkout that it was brilliant not to be getting cravy for a fag!!

The shop was busy and waiting in a queue, plus people who always manage to blunder about in the flipping way used to mean I'd spark up as soon as i got out, but I don't have to :D

So I'm getting the freedom feeling back, even though I do slightly crave, smoking for today at least, is not an option!!

Am going to be off out this afternoon, enjoying the sunshine and the smells of fresh air :D and how would inhaling burnt leaves make that any better?

Get stuffed Nic!!

  • Crack on kiddo! You're darn right - you are going to have a lovely afternoon and if the stinky little oik should raise his ugly mug then BASH HIM!!!!

    Have an extra one for me, I am about to brave cutting the back lawn - still, it's in full sun so that will render an uninviting chore soooooo much more bearable!

    Have a lovely time petal :)

    YAY!!

    Am glad the smell of smoke is really offputting to me now, being with a couple of smokers this afternoon (upwind :p) should refresh my memory of why I quit!!

    Have fun taming the grass hun, make sure you have a nice time in the sun too!!

    Lol well we might have one or two ;) And I'll raise a glass/can (with straw 'cos I'm classy) or bottle West for you x

  • Attagirl! Nice cold bottle of Bud or Magners over ice please! :D

    YAY!!

    Magners i think, or maybe Fosters... *ponders*

    All I can smell in my garden right now is the fish and chip shop cooking the food ........... mmmmm :D

    Oooh how fab!!

    And the smell of fish and chips is so yummy :D
