21st September is the day for me

Hello all, not sure how many people are still on here that I know but here we are again....I quit for 5 months which is by far my longest ever achievement but as usual the weight piled on and the depression and anxiety hit again.

This time I actually do know I can do it, after years of trying and failing I managed 5 months, each time I am edging ever closer to the year quit.

I am armed and ready, quitting tomorrow cold turkey, starting Slimming world on Thursday ( other fat clubs our available :) ) and making an appointment with docs this week to maybe up my meds a bit to alleviate the anxiety I get.

My plan is to be slimmer healthier and smoke free.

With all the tools in place I CAN make it further than 5 months this time.

Looking forward to getting back on the horse again xxxx

Great timing by the way, you'll be 3 months gone by Christmas which is always a difficult time...

Donna ...Congratulations on you decision to quit today and amazing the fact that you are taking on a weigh loss program as well.

Well.... when I was battling my quit the first week or two my dear wife decided to go on a diet...Ouch.... she got food withdrawal and I nicotine withdrawal....Imagine the Growling and Barking in my household for that 2 weeks...Luckily all ended well and I kicked the habit and she is almost on her target weight....(woman will never reach a acceptable weight );)

What I want to say is good luck on the double trouble and you have got all my backing ....Strongs !!
