Months 7 to 12 / 30 Weeks today
« Last post by Nicky40 on June 19, 2019, 08:34:02 am »
So today marks 30 whole weeks of not one puff!  That's 210 days and I'm so pleased.  Very occasional craving but it's a want not a need and usually only when I have had a drink.  I still avoid social groups of mainly smokers when I can, my best friend is usually with me when we are out and she quit 5 years ago so helps a lot.  :foundbeer:

Saved: £890.00
Cigs avoided: 2094

We are off to Jersey next week for 7 days, quite a big family/friends group going so looking forward to a break (and maybe some summer as we don't seem to have one here!)

Not long to go now for your big celebration.  Be proud of yourself hold your head up high and don't yield to temptation

Hmmm.....it's all about the consequences really isn't it.

See I have a wheat allergy. If I eat wheat there's some nasty pain and consequences that can last a few days. I've bought cakes for people and I think it looks nice and that I think I would like it. I don't eat any because of the consequences. Same with pizza. I buy pizza for Mr T and Mini Me. If I just had one bite the consequences won't be as serious as if I rubbed my face in a loaf of bread and then ate a whole birthday cake; but after you gave one bite then how do you justify not having another bite. Where is the line?

In one month you will have done a whole year. I hope your daughter is proud of you.

That is 11 months ticked off.

My 16 year old daughter smokes (having smoked for 35 years I find it very difficult to chastise her as this would make me a hypocrite) I bought her a bag of tobacco at the week end and am now constantly fantasising about asking if I can roll a tab.

So I cannot smoke myself but I also cannot buy tobacco for other people, as it triggers my cravings?

Inspiration and Motivation / Another reason to quit

Some of you might find this interesting.   The original members of this forum once belonged to another forum run by the British Heart Foundation. I think we would all agree that they were a great support to us when we were quitting.
 
I kept myself busy, to stop thinking of smoking, I did some study at FutureLearn.com. You can do these courses for free or pay extra. It's up to you. They have some interesting courses to do.
 
Anyway I have just started this course and thought some of you might be interested in doing it as well.
    https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/heart-and-circulatory-diseases   This course is 3 weeks and allow about 3 hours per week to complete it.   OR you might like to consider a donation to the British Heart Foundation. https://www.bhf.org.uk/how-you-can-help/donate/donate-money
