ONE MONTH AND COUNTING!!

Have done it...Ive managed not to smoke a cigarette for a whole month!!! it feels so good to be able to say that out loud, didnt think I 'd make it ; i was cracking up with the cravings; by day 10 I was crying at work, I screamed at my husband, my kids and our dog...I felt upset and grumpy ALL of the time. But slowly it has got easier, little by little I find I am thinking less and less about smoking and more and more about all the benefits its bringing.

A big THANKS to all of you out there - couldnt do it without you. Reaching this 1st month mark has made me more determined than ever to keep on keeping on!! (: xx

The first hour, day, week and month are the hardest. You have past the worst time and now can have the confidence that you have stopped smoking. Nothing strange is going to happen, you have quit and that is all that matters. Give yourself the praise you deserve, fantastic, it is a great achievement, well done. Treat yourself and celebrate. The hardest bit has passed, you have already stopped. :) Be positive and walk tall

thank you.!! and you're right I kept/ keep waiting for something to happen but its a slow process then you slowly realise the addiction has gone the next part- the hardest part for me at least will be having a glass of wine or 2. I havent had any alcohol for a month either....don't feel ready for that test yet. x

Well done Buddyboo The first month is the hardest but it gets easier as the months go on as you don't want to undo all your hard work.. I promised I will never smoke again and that is a promise I intend to keep.. So good luck and keep strong..XX Catherine,
