  • Hey there Jilly my friend,

    Just been out for my walk (went to see the sea) and this p.m have got a jolly (NOT!!) jaunt to the hospital to see my consultant to get my back checked. Tomorrow I'm off to investigate a Pilates class and maybe maybe if Mr K my lovely consultant gives me the green light I can start thinking about getting back into the gym.Hope everyone is having a great Friday and has got plans in place to stay smoke free over the weekend. Hugs to all Helen x

  • Hi Helen, lovely morning, I too have had a walk this morning, not to the sea (its about 40mile away te he ) :D

    I hope all goes well for you this afternoon. I think we all feel a bit fitter when the sun shines. catch up later. :) xx

  • Morning Jilly, another lovely picture I have had to save !! Hope you are well, and everyone else looking in. Here's to a Happy and smoke free Friday, :-) :-)

  • Morning sunny, Hope your ok. enjoy your Friday. xx :) :)

  • Hi again , we have a new member caninecrazy48 who has been asking for advice on the niquitin spray. anyone used it or can advise , would be grateful

    The query was on a reply to fairyuser 6 days ago. However if we reply on the daily chat I am sure he/she will find it.

  • The sun is shining, the food shopping is done and I am 60 DAYS cigarette free. Feeling quite good about that, 2 whole months never thought it could happen. I don't post that much but do read every day for inspiration so thank you all.

  • Wow! 2 months is brilliant. well done KC. :) :)

  • Hi KC, Huge Congrats on two months quit, I am like you never thought it could happen to me after 45years smoking ! But I must confess I couldn't have done it without the help of the e-cig, I'm still using it but with reduced nic level. Here's to us being healthier older Ladies, :-) :-)

  • I have 2 more weeks of Champix and then I'm on my own (apart from you lovely lot of course).

  • Wow good for you KC!!! I've just finished my 12 week course of Champix this morning! I did ask the doc about another 12 week pack but he refused saying that he believes I can do it. Let me know how you feel when you get off them and congratulations!!

  • Interested to hear how you get on. I was told I could have another 12 weeks but I want to try to do without as they do make me feel sick some days and I find that to combat that feeling I eat too much chocolate. I will see how I get on.

  • Yes some times they made me feel dreadful.....almost like I'd smoked a dozen ciggies at once. I'd feel really queasy.

  • Afternoon all and Happy Friday :-)

    JillyGirl, that picture! Wow, I wonder if there is anyone who can't look at it without going aaaaah! :D

    Helen, I hope all goes well for you at your hospital appointment this afternoon. Don't forget to remind them that you have still quit :-)

    Mrssunnyside, I hope the sun is shining wherever you are :D

    KC, that's fantastic news, well done to you - You are now heading into your 3rd smokefree month :-) Oooooh would you check out that new Winner's Badge by your name :D :D

    caninecrazy48, welcome aboard to Quit Support :-) We'll get you back to living a smokefree life once again so don't worry :-)

    With regards to the nicotine mouth-spray, each metered dose delivers a fine spray of nicotine to the inside lining of your cheek. Peak levels are usually reached within 16 minutes of having a 2mg dose. So, the best thing to do is to make sure you have a spray on the hour every hour whilst awake. This way you will maintain your blood - nicotine levels and so won't have too much bother from dipping. However, should you have a feeling of a craving, then you can have an have an extra spray.

    It is recommended that you have one or two sprays every 30 minutes to an hour, maximum of 4 sprays in an hour / 64 sprays in a day. As I said, usually 'on the hour every hour' is the best way ;-) Any questions then please just ask :-)

  • JILLY,

    Is that you in the little Avtar hope so because you look just like I thought you would.H x You've made my day.!!!

  • Yep thats me. thanks Helen. xx

  • My lovely consultant did ask if I was still cig free,don't think he thought I could do it really.I got a big hug (quite good as he's very good looking !! Hubby was with me & just laughed) and I told him I wanted a job as smoking cessation advisor in the spine clinic,he thought that was HILARIOUS. : ) The screws and graft in my back are all still where they should be and I can start some gentle work back in the gym but just treadmill walking and arm stuff for now.better than nothing I think.H x

  • Helen I have a couple of things to say.

    1. I'm so pleased that things are going well with your back :). Screws and what did you have done? I had surgery about 10 years ago altho mine doesn't sound nearly as drastic as yours. It took me a good 12 months to feel back to normal. Small steps like getting on a treadmill etc are awesome improvements. Good for you!!!

    The second thing I want yo say....well...ask actually?? Is your good looking consultant single???? And if so does he travel often??? Like to the NW coast of tasmania??????????????? Well does he????????

  • Thanks for my shiny new badge.
