No Smoking Day

Hello Week 2 :)

So, here I am, I made it, YaY!. Entered week two just over an hour ago and I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself :)

I've spent the weekend pretty much hiding away from the world, until tonight, we went out for dinner. Had a huge craving when I finished my meal but it soon disappeared and I got through it :)

I've decided to wash ALL my clothes, even the "clean" ones in the wardrobe smell of stale smoke.

Hi

Yeah making it to week two is worth a clean out celebration x well done and I'm impressed you made it through the after dinner craving without too much trouble. I saved going out for dinner till about week four and still struggled! I hope you have that lovely proud feeling today you deserve it x

What a great idea Ananke - that kind of celebration/moving on is really helpful, I think. I remember cleaning, hoovering and scrubbing the inside of my car on my day 8!

Also well done on going out for a meal and beating that crave - that's a big milestone! 4777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777747

Think it was around week 2 when I had a need to paint my lounge. Meals are hard, but the next one will be easier. :) x

NICE going Ananke, Week one under your belt . Get ready to loosen that belt another notch and start making room for week 2:)

Good going getting through week one, and being brave to dine out. Yes I too had to wash my clothes couldn't stand the smell when I opened my wardrobe. I never smoked inside the house ever but strangely my home smells fresher since I quit. Keep strong were all with you

I only ever smoked in the kitchen at the window, can't believe that when I came through the front door today all I could smell was stale smoke. It really does get everywhere.

Thanks everyone :) Day 8 is over now and the time between cig thoughts seems to be getting longer.

I blew a zero on the carbon monoxide reader at the pharmacy today, last week it was 27.

That's very good, your carbon monoxide. You must live in the countryside! Mine would not go below 3. Which is so much better than 27 when I first started on this journey

I live in the city so I was quite surprised.

Hmm,interesting. That's even better!
