Hi hi hi!!

Hi all, hope this finds you very well and kicking!!

Just a quick one really to say I pop in and read what's happening... struggled on and off recently and really want to give up the e cig but got a few stressful times coming up, not the best time I think...

I've been taking lots of pictures and immersing myself in anything else!! Put a couple of kilos on but am back on the exercising so hoping I'll beat the weight gain!

Can't believe it's almost 13 weeks since I last smoked a cigarette... stills feels very surreal. Some days I use the e cig more than others, it's not been so much of a replacement as I thought it may be but still..

Thanks for being here...

  • Hi jobm1 It just get easier by time and I find that changing my mindset make it more easier for me. I think about it as following: I wasn't smoker, then I became smoker and now I return back to my normal status as nonsmoker I just keep tilling my mind that I am non smoker not quitter and it seems to work for me๐Ÿ˜„ Stay strong ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  • You're nailing it so do not worry about the e-cig, it's doing it's job so stay with it for now. As for the weight gain, well deal with that when you've dealt with this.

    Keep going! Good job! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  • Bless you lovely xx what a massive inspiration you are!! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›

  • I don't know about that. Had a load of grief with work so need a new job and all I have wanted to do is smoke. Getting a new job that fits around school is difficult. The only thing that stops me having a cigarette is the thought of the monumental amount of effort required to quit and how I would have to do it all over again. But shit, for me smoking and worrying were a surprisingly good combination. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  • Sending you a giant hug!!! I'm with you on the worrying and smoking!!! Xxx good luck with the job love.. I took a massive dip in my career having my son just so I could fit around his school times. Got a lot less cash but got time, it's a big deal isn't it!! Good luck honey.., well done not smoking!! ๐Ÿ’›
