What a difference a week makes !!
« on: April 29, 2018, 10:31:27 pm »
Heelllooo to week two !
Thank you to everyone for your awesome messages.. They were a massive help during that first week...
But, what a fantastic weekend I've had....
Went to the beach yesterday with fish and chips on the seafront and went had a bit of fun with the 2p machines in the arcade....
Found an old fashioned sweetie shop, sherbet lemons, cough candy and sherbet..... I've got loads here if anyone wants to share.......
Went back in the evening and took the doggie for a 3 mile walk along the promenade, and then today, she had another 3 mile walk through the woods..... the poor girl was struggling to keep up!  010

I'm quite enjoying telling myself that I don't smoke when those little "ooh you can have a smoke when......."   

So a week off  work now..... I'm sure the dog is going to lose weight this week
Quit date 22/4/18 @ 00.01

Sure the dog's delighted to have an engaged companion. Keep us posted on the hols!

Congratulations on your first week!  Sounds like a great weekend, I like the little sherbet pips and the alphabet sweets from the sweetie shops.

My poor dog was also walked off his little paws in the first few weeks of my quit.

Have a great week off work. 

Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Absolutely brilliant work.  It sounds like you are floating on cloud 9 with this quit at the moment and so you should be.  It’s a massive achievement to get that first week under your belt.  Well done! Enjoy your week off.  Just remember to keep busy to keep those craves at bay.

Only place I can think of with a beach, a promenade, 2p machines and old fashioned sweetie shop with sherbert lemons, cough candy and not to mention sherbert pips and pear drops is Brighton.  Am I right?

Welcome to Week 2
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Well done @DBsussex a week under your belt is fab and you sound really positive.  I'm sure the dog will love all the extra walks, ours is getting extra's too since my quit started and she has lost weight (needed to anyway, was a little chunk!)  :foundbeer:

I love the seaside anytime of year, more peaceful when it's cold.  Especially love the seaside fish and chips.   :)
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...........

Oh I do like sherbet pips and mint pips. They're so tiny, it's my only opportunity to feel like a giant !!  ;D I'm also quite fond of aniseed balls, even though they are bigger.

Fabulous start DB and with a week off ahead,and Spring in the air,you can relish the prospect of your sense of smell returning in style  8)
I spent minutes sniffing hedgerows as I walked my dog way back in the very early Spring of 2013,when I was about 4-5 weeks into my quit,cos my olfactory senses had burst back into life,rescued from the Hell of smoking's yoke,and were seduced by gorgeous natural smells,wallflowers, apple blossom,jasmine, mmmmmmm!!!!!! Such a delight to rediscover your sense of smell!!!!!
