Hi Jan, yes I know how you must be feeling. How about a nice stroll down to the water to try and take your mind off it? :)

You can do this, keep strong, keep shouting, keep punching, how about trying singing? :) :D

As for singing..you have never heard a voice like mine lol. Yes Im bopping in the kitchen with dust :)))

That's it Jan, bopp and sing in the kitchen, it will take your mind of things and cheer you up, that's the kind of thing i do, it's great, I'm sure your singing is not that bad, you should hear mine :D :D and i don't care :D

stay strong :)


I got home for work and could smell something really unpleasant in the kitchen. It turns out that my dog has spent the day rolling in a bottomless pit of vulture shit or something of that nature and was in dire need of a shower/bath/water cannon/flamethrower or something drastic. My point is, this took my mind completely off anything smokey for a good half hour. Others within this community refer to chocolate and sweets to divert their attention but I thought I'd pass on this gem of wisdom just in case the sweets don't work.

Well done for getting this far. Keep it up, I know it's not easy but we can all act as crutches for one another.

Fags :)


Aup Jan :)

Your doing just great gal :) :) if you can, do different things, as in not the normal routine :) if you see what I mean, cos the times that you used to smoke, like with your first cuppa in the morning, erm waiting at the bus stop and when you've had a meal etc :o try to start a new routine, like dont have a cuppa first thing, have orange juice instead :o ha ha that will wake you up gal :D :D do you see what I mean :) I know changing routine is hard, but it will help you with your quit :) I know cos I've done it :)

The first week is always the worst Jan !! the cravings do slow down and get easier as you learn how to deal with them :) :)

Please please stay strong Jan, you will get there gal, and we will help you in any way we can, you just come and shout gal :) :) speak soon.

Pete :)
