Back on dry land!!

Hi everyone, just letting you know that I'm back in the system after daily visits for the old treatment for the ssshh! you know what!! (for the unknown to me Lung Cancer). Feeling somewhat ropey now - but at least am having a break - and chance to mend a bit. Can't believe it has been approx. 32 weeks since my last ciggie. Times I have been tempted and they still smell so good outside - but not when you get close up to people who have just had one. I can honestly say - I am so pleased that I have stopped and the cravings get less and less. in fact I just use a vape now and again - more like having a dummy and now am on café latte flavour! So all you guys out there - stick at it - eventually you will get there. My winning tip that worked for me is just NOT to have that first puff. If you have to swing from a chandelier upside down whilst juggling 3 balls - do that instead - in fact sounds like fun to me . . . . . . ;)
