Good morning everyone.

American Independence Day today (not that that means much to most of us. :-) :D :D )

I hope that everyone's feeling more independent from their habit too and enjoying their freedom, if not, I'm sure you will be soon. :)

Good morning everyone 8-) is that the sun I can see???

How's everyone doing?

Betts, did you enjoy your day? How do you deal with stresses now you've quit? Emjay snd myself have put information on here to help with these tricky times. Try looking for our breathing exercises, they really can help.

Ill pop back on later, see you soon. In going to eat my maltesers ;-)

Hi Andi, jarvo and everyone,

We have lovely warm sunshine here today 8-) hope you all do to :)

I'm having a break from decorating my living room, I'm a bit sore now so think it's cuppa time if anyone wants one :)

some low calorie cake as well, for those of you watching what you eat :) have a brill smoke free day everyone :) x

I knew there was something significant about 4 July. It's my independence too, todays the day I ditched lozenges, e-cigs and all the other nrt sh*te that doesn't work and have gone cold turkey. Had enough of being lied to and conned. Nicotine is a seriously addictive drug no matter what medium you take it in through. The only way to quit for good is to turn your back on it and suffer the cravings till they've gone. EEEEEEEKKkkkkkk.

Really Pete? Well it doesn't appear to bloody work does it! I thought I'd give it a try since things ain't getting any better, at least I've left the ciggies alone when feeling down and pissed off.

Hi guys and Gals,

First of all let me say "GOOD LUCK" to sin for going cold turkey! Brave. I know i couldn't do it, or my wife.

Its now day 2 or 39 hours.... I'm doing ok, with only one craving, after i've eaten food. My wife (Chrissy) is also doing well!

Chrissy even turned down a cigarette offered by a friend this morning, so feeling really proud of her =)

Good luck to everyone else, who is also on the journey of being smoke free!!!

Aup Brien & Chrissy, nearly 2 days quit now, thats just great :) and a massive well done to you Chrissy, for actually turning down a ciggy :) :)

As for feeling proud of her, 'yes' so you should and yourself too :) tell each other about the bad bits, and how you got through them, and praise each other and yourselves when you get through them :) perhaps this will keep your spirits up and help you to stay positive on your quit.

I myself have been quit for 30 days now :) ha ha but have tried a erm, lets say a few times :o but am well on track this time, and hope to do it for good :)

Speak soon, Pete :)

andi22 in reply to brien

Hi Brien, sounds like you and Chrissy are doing really well so far. :) You'll have all those triggers to get through and each one you survive, you will come out stronger. Just think of all those times when it was "I'll just have a fag first" or "now that's done, I'll just have a fag" and so on. One day at a time, onwards and upwards! :)

Hiya Pete,

A big well done for reaching 30 days, that's brill :) :) woo hoo :D :) you 'll do it this time Pete, I know you will :)

As for me, I've been busy decorating my living room, or trying to scrape the walks, there must be about 5 layers of paper to get through :o :D :D so it's rest time now,

I hope your day has not been too bad :) x

Ha ha ha 5 layers of paper, that sounds like my Dads house, cos his idea was, the more layers of wallpaper you put on the walls, the warmer the room :o :) :)

I just had a bit of a busy day for a change. Pt this morning - and we went for a run, then I had a boob squash at lunchtime and was booked in for a sports massage this afternoon. :o He suggested I get my back fixed before wasting money on massage. It should all improve much quicker then. Then this evening I had to go to kiddies cricket to see my friend for her birthday. :)
