Day three
« on: August 22, 2017, 09:23:20 am »
 So start of day three.  Feeling ok this morning.

I suppose it helps that I never actually went back to smoking 20 a day.  Since last July I have smoked between 5-15 per day, some days I missed out the morning one, after lunch one or before bed one as I was always planning to quit again and didn't want to have those awful habit ones at particular times.  Also if I ever ran out I just bought more the next day, there was no rushing to the shop in a panic.

I actually had my last one on Saturday afternoon then went out in the evening for drinks (pre-planned, would have got out of it if I could have as drinking does not help quit) with family, all non smokers which was good.

I'm using a stats app on my phone again, I think they are great in telling you of each health improvement as you reach it and of course money saved.  Apparently I have avoided 30 cigarettes in two days 16 hours.  :foundbeer:
Smoked for 27 years, quit for 26 months, smoked again for 16 months now trying to stop for good!

Right here beside you,Nicky  :nobeer:
This doesn't have to be purgatory-it can be fun,not least 'cos it is a journey of potentially saving yourself from a whole load of hideous illness further up the line.Sorry that sounds awful! But a good way to motivate  ;D
Great to see you here,making this-the last,and successful push to end the madness of smoking-so pull up yer skirts,gather up your determination,grit your teeth and let us support you as you make this fabulous transition !

Good to see you on the quizzes too! As smoking fades,so your brain power will expand,with all that pulsating oxygen-rich blood coursing around that brain  007

Thanks @Max414, the good thing for me is that I do still remember the good things about my previous quit so I know it's absolutely worth it.

Lol @Lostie I have not heard that one before either.

I think he may have meant "socks". Pull up your socks is an English saying.

No,I do not mean Pull up your socks.
I mean Hitch up or pull up your skirts  :hug:
This is a Victorian or Edwardian expression depicting how a woman who is getting a move on,or going to work,would 'hitch or pull up' her skirts to enable her to run or walk faster and more safely.



It is not rude,as you thought,Lostie-your mind,honestly  :hug:
