1 month and 1 day!!! #verysmugface

I have had some challenges recently like having to sit outside on a night out near all the smokers while my friends smoke. I gave them clear instructions not to give me any even if I begged. When the craving came and I asked they said let's go inside and get. I am lucky to have such great support.

If ever someone deserved to be smug. Excellent news. Great that you have such good support as well. Have the cold/flu symptoms gone now?

Nope lol doc says it will in time.

Thank you for asking. How is your quit going?

Thanks Nicole - my quit is at a really good stage at the moment. On day 66 and the last fortnight or so have flown by. Like you I had cold/flu symptoms for quite a while at the beginning - seemed to ache all over and felt utterly exhausted all of the time. It was hard to concentrate at work and all I really wanted to do was go to sleep. Now though it couldn't be more different. I was out for a beer with some friends last night and didn't even think about having a cigarette. Energy levels are good and most of the time my mood is up. I know that it isn't beaten yet and that I have to be on my watch but generally I am feeling in a good place - happy days :)

That's excellent news Nicole...and it sounds like you have some excellent friends too. Congratulations on your first month!

It seems to have come around so quick...but probably doesn't for you 😀

Other people's quits always seem to progress faster than your own.

Congratulations on 1 month quit.

You are VERY lucky to have such supportive friends. You actually asked them for a smoke? Your quit is still so new and fragile - please don't risk it for a night out. You have plenty of time for nights out when you are stronger and more comfortable in your quit.

Wow wow a whole month, is so fantastic, your very hard work is now paying dividends,

Great news indeed, a true inspiration, isn't it so much more enjoyable, getting ready for a night out, makeup, clothes, perfume, lovely company, knowing we just don't have that nasty lingering smell, that all smokers have. For me that is a massive plus.

Amazing, keep up the great work.

I am good thanks, would prefer to not be stuck in work with the glorious weather we are having, but could be worse, could have no job 8-)
