Good morning all, I hope you all slept well. Saturday and time to enjoy the weekend. Anyone got any worries over quitting then call on here and shout. We will be at the ready to support and help you.

Meanwhile lets see how many reasons we can come up with for enjoyment as a non smoker.

Mine is being able to make and talk to new friends on here.

What do you enjoy?

  • As you know I've struggled to see the good side of quitting but it has to be more money, and being able to walk very fast without getting cramp in my legs and being able to stomp up those hills without getting out of breath.

  • Hi Pete, hows day 6 going, are you gardening today?

  • Morning Jilly and everyone

    I've got a family party this weekend and will enjoy NOT having to hide away from my two little grandchildren to smoke and then frantically cleaning my teeth and spraying myself with perfume to hide the smell - as if it ever did ha ha

    Have a lovely day everyone xx

  • Hi Beth I too used to think perfume would disguise the smell of cigarettes. How our minds made excuses eh. :)

  • Oooooooo Beth, that will be lovely for you gal, you ENJOY :) :)

    Yes I know what you mean about the perfume, cos I used to get some rite funny looks gal :o :D :D

    Beth, you have a great time with your Grandchildren :) :) xxx

  • Good morning everyone from the sunny south coast. 8-)

    Yep, I agree with all of that, ESPECIALLY the friends bit. :)

  • Hi Andi send some sun up here please, its a bit chilly and grey today. :(

  • Hi Jilly, it started out like that this morning. There is a bit of a fresh breeze but it's tooooo nice to stay in so I think that once I've had my lunch I'm off out on my bike. Yesterday turned out quite nice too so I went for a walk round the Head. Halfway round the sun came out and it was so hot I had to take my coat off. :)

  • Aup Andi, yeah could do with some of that sun up here tooooo :) cos we've got flippin grey clouds today :P :( Enjoy your bike ride Andi :)

    Jillygirl, yep am in the garden today and a bit of pottering about toooooo :o :)

    Thats me green with envy

  • Been missing in action for a few days as my internet went down. Makes you realise how we rely on it. Just set up a new Router and I am back in the game. An old friend came to see me on Thursday and stayed the night. We sat up until 5.00 am drinking and I can honestly say the thought of a cigarette did not cross my mind. The hangover on Friday was horrendous and I will never drink again!!!!!!! I have 11 more days of full strength Champix and then 1 week of a reducing dose. I have saved a fortune and breathing better.

  • Well done KC, staying off those ciggys. May be treat yourself with some of the money you have saved. :)

  • Well done KC for not succumbing to those fags - I'm thinking that your friend doesn't smoke anyway so you weren't tempted. :) Now, if I had a pound for every time I'd heard that other expression.......... ;-) :D :D

  • Actually she is a smoker so well done me!

  • Toooooooo flippin rite KC, you did absolutely fantastic gal :) :) I cant fault you one little bit gal :) You hold your head up proud :)

    What you have to do now KC, is goooooooo and flippin treat yourself gal :) :)

  • Wow! Really well done you. It sounds like you've really got your head in the right place for this quit. :)

  • So I went out on my bike. It was lovely but I seemed to have a bit of a headwind most of the time. I decided to just ride casually, avoid all hills, no pressure, it is early days this year after all. I got to the beach and saw some of the aftermath of the recent storms, a lot of clearing up has already been done. There were masses of people out, I think everyone is just stir crazy after the winter we've been having. I clocked 14.74 miles - 3 1/2 more than my last outing so happy with that. :)

  • Hey Andi, 14.74 miles eh !! that's about from my house to Derby City Centre, that's some flippin way gal :o :) and YES, you flippin be happy with that gal :) :)

    Well so far have done some gardening, done some pottering and am cleaning my greenhouse out, cos everything seems to get shoved in there in the winter, cos its dry !! guess what I found :o my bike !! so am now stripping it down and getting it ready, plus I've found the new jel seat to put on it, which I bought last Year :o :D :D

    Although I like my rower, ermmmmm, it just dosnt go anywhere :o Soooooo watch this space gal, cos I'm a coming :)
