Thank you

I know it's boring but I find cleaning helps. I like to sort out a draw or hoover under my bed, it keeps my hands and my mind occupied for a while :)

HiCongratulations! I try to keep busy, are you going cold turkey or using NRT? If you are determined to stop smoking recommend Allen Carr easy way to stop smoking book. After 45 years of smoking I have stopped in 4 weeks. The book dispels all the myths, illusions and excuses to smoke. Good luck

Welcome Lsjh , congratulations on hopefully over 1 week smoke free. Are you going cold turkey or using an aid?

Hi. I have not quit yet but have cut down a lot. Making little notes on what I can spend the money I save is a good little distraction for me. Being retired I have a lot of spare time on my hands to contemplate little things like that. Weather permitting I will go for walks, if not I look for little jobs to do around the house or chill out with a good book. Keep up the good work and best of luck to you
