6 months and counting!

Hey peeps how is everyone? I do hope your all still smoke free! :-) I thought you would like to know I'm six months smoke free today! Yay for me.

I still would like a ciggy to be honest although I know how much damage this will cause me. I'm also still coughing up tar, not as much as I have been but it still comes up once or twice a week. But my breathing has definitely improved. I went skating for the first time in donkey years and I didn't get out of breath once.

I still also have days when I struggle with my anxiety but I'm getting much better at controlling it.

I'm now going to have a butchers though the forum and see what I've missed...

  • YAY, 6 months Morrie,That's a HUGE achievement.WELL DONE.Personally I don't think that the 'wanting' a cigarette thing will ever leave but after a,while you decide that you've gone long enough to not go back.The craving thing for me has nearly all gone but the missing my cigs ...... Still there sadly.I think I'll possibly always miss my cigs but like you realise just how much damage they were doing me.You're a total superstar for going 6 months aim high now and go for the year.Hugs H x

This together x

  • It's doubly hard when you've had a drink on hol, I think some of my happiest times were having a,glass of wine and a cig on a balcony somewhere warm.Still, I guess the not smoking money paid for the hol so all is good.Just to make you feel good,it's bloomin freezing here !!! :-)

  • Since giving up I still haven't had a drink. I'm not really missing it to be honest. And when I do I reckon two pints and I will be complety hammered lol

  • O BTW awesome. I've just gained an extra month smoke free. Thanks Emjay :-) xx
