  • Morning Jilly

    Its a bit chilly down here in Kent, well it might have had something to do that I turned the heating down yesterday and forgot to put it back to normal, so when i got up this morning, it was like running an icy gauntlet :)

    Hope everyone had a good smoke free weekend.

  • Hi Al, you make sure you keep that heating on. dont want you poorly with man flu etc. :)

  • Good Morning JillyGirl, Al and All :-)

    Another weekend under everyone's belt, and an eventful weekend it has been for me! It included Grandbabies, lost phone, found phone, temperamental phone, no broadband (or very slow when it did appear) and the rescue of a poor injured wrinkly dog!

    I've now come into work for a rest ;-)

    Lovely to see that our Sin has reached her one year mark too :-)

    I have so much catching up to do, I think it may take a couple of kettle-putting-on-exercises!

  • Morning everyone,

    Can't quite believe it but it is SIX MONTHS for me this week.

    Just to say a big thank you to all on here old and new, you have really helped me keep going and yes it does get a little easier each day.


  • Hi Bethjayne, well done on getting this far. you must be really chuffed with yourself. :)

  • Thank you jilly

  • Morning everyone, The sun is shining here, lovely, :-) but there are black clouds looming too :-( Oh well washing will be going in the dryer again !!

    Yes a new week ahead, thinking about cigarette's is getting less and less, I'm trying to think more about exercising instead, so from this week that is my goal, I'm going to give my brain a good talking to, Phew it can be so stubborn !! :-D Just like Hubby :-D :-D

    Here's to a great possative day to all. x :-)

  • Hi Mrs S, think your brain is like mine too, it seems to think it can slow down now the nicotines gone. :D Exercise is what I need too . :)

  • Good morning everyone

    2 weeks completed yesterday feeling quite proud of myself. But for whatever reason this morning I've been having the worst cravings so far in my quit. I start back in college today and maybe that's playing on my mind as i smoked way more at college than at home. Would always have a smoke before class and loved my smoke after class. Rough day ahead it seems :-(

  • Hi Jmcf81, You`ve reached 2 weeks which is brilliant. So tell yourself how proud and good you feel. Ignore the cravings they will go dont worry.

  • Thanks Jilly

    Most of my classes were cancelled so today wasn't too bad :-)

  • Hey BethJayne - You are doing ever so well and have put in a lot of hard work in maintaining your quit status. We now have Winners Badges for certain milestones along the quitting journey - I'll very quickly award you your 5 month Quitters Badge so you can show it off before receiving your 6 month one ;-)

    Hi Mrssunnyside, thinking is quite an important step in making improvements within our lives - whether it be thinking about stopping smoking, changing our eating habits or taking up exercise. Depending on your ability - there are lots of options available to get you started - From a nice gentle stroll leading to a more energetic pace, or an energetic walk on week one to being able to jog 5k in 9 weeks. There are also many 30 day challenges that you can try, these include either sit ups, planks, squats. There's something for everyone - Let us know what you decide on and at what pace you are able to manage and we'll cheer you on :-)

    Jmcf81, congratulations on making it halfway through your first month :-) Have a go at working with your mindset and change the way you think towards your new smokefree lifestyle with the 'college setting'. Having got 2 weeks under your belt means that although you may experience some cravings or symptoms of recovery - they won't last for ever. This will then mean that you will be able to crack on with your study and not be distracted by clockwatching for your next break ;-) Today is in your hands and you will find it as easy or as difficult as you think it will be, remember to change your mind set :-)


    If it's to be, then it's up to me :-)

  • Hello Emjay, hope your kettles on again, ready for a cuppa. Just come back from the dentist flippin aches now. still not finished thats next Monday. root filling. yuk. ah well never mind. :) Hows you doing. :)
