Good Morning Everyone
Following such lovely sunshine the past copuple of days, it's slightly cooler today, fab weather for Lenne I think
Congratulations to Andi, reaching your 4 week mark today I bet you are well chuffed with yourself, and quite rightly so too! You've also done well in keeping up your exercise regime with your PT too, can you notice any changes in your fitness levels?
Pete, hope today is a good day for you and that you're not too tired from your 4.00am start! There's a couple of questions I need to ask you with regards to your newly set quit date tomorrow; Is today going to be your last day of smoking and you wake up to a fresh smokefree day tomorrow? Rather than just wait until the day reaches you and then just stop, have you started thinking about which are the smokes that you are actually going to miss the most? On a scale of 1-10, how much are you looking forward to your quit date? Lets get you back on track and see if wee can get you right up to where you left off eh?!
Lenne, you have remained quite strong throughout your quitting period and I really do admire how you keep up the momentum, especially as your boyfriend still smokes. Living with a smoker when you first quit can be quite difficult, with many people returning to smoking. Time needs to be spent on building up on willpower. This takes time and doesn't happen overnight. However, by focusing on the positive outcome should help keep you on track. The longer you go without smoking and the more you say no to those piggies and the cravings, the easier it does become
Wonder, you really are getting there. If you stopped at the end of February, this means that you are heading into your 4th month now! Well done I am a firm beleiver in that if you can dig around, deep inside of your heart and mind and find all your very own reasons for quitting (as opposed to somebody elses - the hubby/wife /partner /kids etc) then the process will be a lot easier and long term you will be free from smoking. Rather than being quit for the rest of your life but still feel like you are missing out on something. What was your main reason for wanting to stop? Well done to you and keep up the good efforts
I hope all is going as well as can be expected for Sue, I'm sure she knows that we are all thinking of her at this sad time xx
What's happening in the land of Jillygirl? I hope all is going well for you
There are a couple of old blogs that I shall go and dig out, I'll copy and paste them just so that they come up on the first page of this site as I can't seem to 'bump' them up any other way
Have a lovely day everybody
