72 days today!
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:49:52 am »
Hi everyone.  I am now 72 days smoke free, over 10 weeks.  Feeling good and rarely wanting to smoke at all now.  Still have like a constant cold and I'm always throat clearing or doing a silly little cough - it will go though, and it will all be worth it I know.  Money saved is now £281 and Physical condition has improved 79% if app is to be believed, in that case it really doesn't take very long at all to repair the damage caused by smoking. 

I will still need to work on my weight but will get there I'm sure.  I can't blame it all on the quit either as I had actually only gained about 5 pounds since quit and have now lost 3 of them, my issue is I love food and I don't love exercise ;)

I had a lovely relaxing weekend and didn't leave the house at all yesterday, had a fab Netlix watching Duvet day.  Unfortunately it's back to work today but after this week we have two short weeks to look forward to  :) :)
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

@Nicky40 , you're well on your way to your century and beyond that lies Halfway House and all those other milestone rooms and moments that line the route to the Penthouse. Good on you indeed!!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: ;D 008

Well done @Nicky40 72 days is fabulous. I also have the silly throat clearing cough thingy which I am pleased about as it must be a healing thing. Isn't it lovely to look forward to the warm summer months smoke free :D

That’s brilliant @Nicky40.  You are rockin this quit.  Weight.  Harrumph.  I know. But in all honesty it is really nice to have something else to focus on now rather than smoking.  I am determined and stubborn and I think you may be too so the weight will come off!! Did you know that it doesn’t matter whether you walk or run 5km, you still burn the same amount of calories apparently. So get those walking shoes on and hit the park, streets, whatever ya got to work with!

A huge well done from me @Nicky40
You are doing so well.  Very close to having a quarter of a year done.  Now you need to treat yourself because you deserve it!!!

well done @Nicky40 and @Gerti1 you are both doing brilliantly.  Its amazing that we are all still here and doing so well.  Not long till triple figures now. Day 136 for me and my app says saved £1224.  I've been heavy splashing the cash though ha! Totally agree @Enough42 its good now focussing on the weight rather than smoking.  Weight is such a dam stubborn thing though  ;D
