I'm using an e-cig and the lozenges at work :) I have used the lozenges before, the 2 mg ones that is :) cos I find the 4mg lozenges seem to burn the back of my throat eh :o The e-cig, am getting used to it now and I must say, yeah, its helping a hell of a lot on my journey :) :)

Well, although I've been snacking on peanuts & raisins all week, I have just weighed myself, annnnnnnnd, I'm flippin still 11st 2lb which I am very happy with :) :) cos I thought that I would have put some on, nuts beeing nuts and all eh :o :D :D

Am keeping focused and positive on my quit and yep, am going to do it this time :) :) yay flippin hayyyyyyyyy :) :)

Thank you all for helping me soooooo much :) :) xxxxxx

Dear Mr Monky Motivator Pete - what can I say?

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR! Sorry, I didn't mean to shout :)

To turn it around in such a short time and to have achieved a week already is just amazing. I am really really hoping that you are feeling proud of yourself tonight, because I am feeling so proud of you, in a totally non patronising way!

Be strong my friend, I know you can do this, I want you to do this, not for me, but for you. You have been so motivational, so caring and so loving to so many people on this site, we wouldn't have got to where we are without the undying care and support from you - it's your turn now. No more blips, no more Mr TWIT, this is it and you have 1000 people who want you to succeed in this battle. Do you want to do this? YES YOU DO!

So tell me, have I nagged you enough now? :) :) :) xxx

Well done Pete, you sound so possative again, you won't fail with the e-cig, it's doing it for me !! :-D only thing is I'm back up 18 strength at the moment, but know I will reduce down again soon. But still not losing any of my weight gain :-( have relaxed on the exercising, so only got myself to blame eh !!

Have persuaded hubby to try the e-cig, but he's not really trying hard enough as he only uses it at night, about 3 or 4 times !! What flavour do you vape Pete ?

Hope today being kind to you, Have a good one. :-)

Hey, Sunny thankyou gal :) :) yes, I think exercise does help when quitting the smokes, cos I myself eat more when I quit, sooooo just have to do a bit more exercise eh :) even a brisk walk dont half burn some cals off gal :) Oy, if you aint got a dog, then chuck a bit of rope around hubby and cart him off for a walk eh :D :D :D

Sunny, I'm on 1.8 mg strawberry erm, vape gal :) :) xx

Yo! Well done you! Glad you didn't just disappear and say nowt. :) Keep at it my lovely, you are still a beacon to us all! The first puff does the damage - think that's what has kept me off em, not particularly the lung cancer. I have nursed many a patient with lung cancer and carried on doing it myself!! This time - like any addiction one shot of heroin - alcohol - ciggs whatever your drug of choice - the addiction takes over along with the "stuff it syndrome"! Keep going you little hero and enjoy your nuts :) ;) :0
