day 55 i think - for all newbies.....


WOW I feel so good! hello all. I wanted to share how I am getting on in case any one in the early days is struggling to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I can say I feel brilliant. Had really bad PMT this month, so had a rocky few days but this might be my body adapting to hormonal changes from being a smoker (which apparently really affects our lady hormones!) but since then and before then I don't think about smoking really at all anymore. I don't replace it with food or drunk or anything. I just live how I once did but don't break for a fag every 45 minutes.

Going out for meals is nicer.

I feel less anxious socialising as I don't need a fag.

Work flys by as again, I don't need to plan when I can run out for a fag

Visiting people is nicer as I don't have wake up moody needing a fag before I can say hi to anyone

I can concentrate for LONG periods of time

I gained no weight giving up. if anything I have lost some weight.

still cant go for a number 2 but hey im sure in time that will go back to normal.

im all round less anxious and I notice I feel calm in my belly, no more tightness at all!

I look and smell better. I breath better.

Honestly stick with it. Im not going back this time. cigarettes are pointless once the addiction is gone. xxxx
