10 weeks today


2090 cigs not smoked, a lot of money saved. Still get the odd thought about smoking so am still aware how easy it could be to give in, but on the whole I'm very happy not smoking. I think I've been through a lot of situations which have tested my resolve but have got through them all still smoke free so hopefully I'm on my way to real freedom.

FANTASTIC Spanish, 10 weeks is amazing! Your will power is an inspiration to us :) It is so important not to avoid and to de-sensitise ourselves to threatening situations.

I think you have it in the bag - the reason I say this is because you recognise what could be a threatening situation and are prepared for it.

When I go out I don't avoid sitting outside having a coffee with smokers on other tables. I am aware this is a potentially dangerous situation to be in for me - I take a book/study how non-smokerss do it/watch other smokers and practice associating negative thoughts, deep breathing etc... So far this strategy is working for me.

You are no longer addicted - it's all psychological - this thinking helps me too :)


That's fantastic! I bet you can hardly believe you've got this far. Motoring on!

Great going, Spanish. I'm right behind you.

Congrats, Spanisheyes xx
