Good Morning All!! I can't believe summer is still here. It is lovely to see all the newer ones on the forum, and I have to say that this little site has helped me enormously. I surely would have had a puff or two by now but for the folk on here (would have had to confess). For me personally - I put my present success to not having that first puff. Always always in the past I have had just one puff because the ciggies smelled so good when someone else was smoking. Smokers in general are happy to give you a 'drag or a fag' . I used to do it - at the same time saying 'are you sure - you are trying to give up?'
So - try not to do that - the early days are not easy and it can be that you have to get through one hour at a time. Do keep at it - I feel like I have now joined the normal human race now. I do believe as well, that smokers are becoming a minority race!
Find the best way for you to do it - and do whatever it takes not to have that first drag of a fag.
It is also worth putting the fag money in a pot and perhaps later in the year you can have a lovely holiday abroad on the proceeds!
Sooooo everybody have a good smoke free day - enjoy the new freedom which is amazing, and of course I don't think I smell like an old ashtray anymore!
I'm to have more tests at the hospital today - Bronchoscoy to determine which type of cancer I have. I'm only ending on this note because I hope it tells people that it can happen to YOU. I am a warning about the possible end product of smoking. If this stops one person from relapsing to the fags - then harsh as it is - it is worth it! Keep routing for me and will update you when I know the findings and the next steps on this journey of mine
