Daily Chat: Monday 7th January 2013

Good Morning Everybody :-)

Today is the first Monday of the year, what will it bring for you I wonder? I hope its plenty of smiles and not very much cravings. Having said that, remember that if you do have cravings then it's a positive sign that your body is recognising that you are not feeding it with the usual nicotine and poisonous toxins that you used to when smoking.

For those of you who have today marked on your calendar as your first smokefree day, congratulations. Enjoy the stopping smoking journey. It's probably one of the biggest roller coaster rides that you'll ever go on, with the ups and downs of emotions, the ups and downs of smiles and tears. It's all pretty normal but please try and remain as positive as possible. When you are feeling a bit low, recognise that it won't last and within minutes you'll be on an up again. When you are on the 'up', enjoy it and then remind yourself that this is how its going to be for you long term :-)

Welcome to all our new members, there are lots of information within the archives section of our Quit Support site. If there is anything that you can't find, or would like to know - please give us a shout and we'll help you all we can.

Big thank you to all our lovely members for supporting and entertaining each other in the only way that you all know how to :D The support that you all show each other on this site is fantastic and simply amazing. There is always somebody who understands what the next person is going through.

Remember to stay as positive as possible everyone and that you can do this. It's just a matter of 'sticking at it'. :D

  • Good morning Emjay and everybody.

    Hope you're all managing your first Monday morning of the New Year okay and new quitters have managed to survive that first commute without a fag. Get your car and ashtray cleaned out asap and get a good supply of sweets in for all those testing times. Don't worry about the weight you put on because you will put weight on - just don't let it be too much! :D Those of us that quit last year are all this year trying to tackle the weight issue cos it takes a few months to get over the excess eating! :o

  • Good Morning Emjay, Andi, and everyone

    Got my computer working......again, had to kick it a few times :D and i got a good sleep last night, I hope you all did as well :),

    Hope all you new quitters are managing to stay strong today, you can do this :) How are you doing Fraz? I hope you found a strategy to help you stay smoke free today :) we all know you can do this :)

    I have a lot of weight issues to lose Andi :D :D hopefully I'll get there :D :)

    Hope you all have a fandabedozi day :D :) xx

  • Hi ladies :D :D I nearly put old birds then but I thought I don't want to get into trouble like someone I could mention :)

    Thanks for your words of advice as always EmJay and Andi about the weight thing, that is so true, sort the weight out once you have kicked the habit.

    I'm glad you got your computer sorted Sue after a few kicks.

    Speak to you later xx :)

  • Hi Kazz,,,,,,again :o :D

    I'm really glad i got my computer sorted, I couldn't live without it now :D :D I wouldn't be able to chat to all of you :)

    I wonder where Andi has got you, do you think she's still jumping and running in the park :D :D

  • She probably is or out with friends knitting some cakes :)

    I'd be lost without my computer Sue and I really would miss you all if I didn't have it and the secret stash of cakes as well :D xx

  • Hi Andi, glad you enjoyed them :)

  • Well Sue, I went for a run this morning and this evening I went to try a Body Balance class. I got this free 5 day gym pass on a packet of cereal last year so am using it this week. It can be used at Fitness First so will try a couple of new things this week. Don't think I will do BB again - you have to be a bit of a contortionist and as I'm getting on a bit now I don't bend that easy! :o :D :D Oh, and my belly gets in the way! :D :D :D

  • Where do you get the energy from, I want some :) :D that BB sounds mental, my belly would get in the way alright, i look 7 months pregnant :D :D it's good you can try out new things, you might find something else that you'll like doing :)

    Hi Peetie Weetie, no it wasn't my tongue sticking out of that cake :) We had to come on here to eat cake because JC keeps eating all our cakes before we get chance to. He's on the other chat so we came here to eat in secret but then Andi Pandi snitched on us but JC hasn't been on here so maybe he didn't see the post :D
