I thought I would start a non smoking thread. I seem to think about everything I put in my mouth because of you guys so I thought it might work with smoking. I just threw a packet away so i will begin my entries tommorrow... Lets hope I am strong and not have any :?

Today I had 4 and I feel so guilty but I only have 1 then I have none left... So it will be interesting. I didnt go out at lunch today to have one well I usually have 2. I felt really adjictated but I did it. I got past it.
When I had them i felt so sick but still did it anyway. So tommorrow I will have one and then no more. I will be strong and not buy a packet.
I only brought a pack coz me and hubby had a fight on sat night but everything is cool so theres no need to do it anymore.

Giving up the fags is the hardest thing hun, I feel for you! :( Ive been 13 months smoke free now, and I was a pack of Horizon 50s smoker a day (yeah feral, I know! :oops: ) it was soooo hard and I think I attempted to do it about 20 times before i finally gave up...it was the hardest thing, but it has also been the most rewarding....to not need a smoke first thing in the morning, to no sore chest and lungs, no more gunky cough, smelly hair and clothes, no more headaches and dizziness....milo, I can smell my perfume now, I am far less stressed out (surprisingly!) and I can walk for hours without chest pain or feeling puffed....its so rewarding mate, and you will do it too, I promise, if you keep at it :D Im totally anti smoking now, the smell of it gives me an instant headache and makes me want to vomit.....when i successfully gave up this time around I used the patches, and my god did they make ALL the difference to me! They really take the edge off, then all you need to deal with is the 'habit' (smoke while having coffee, on the phone, on your break etc....I broke this by sitting in a different seat, drinking water, sucking on a lollipop, sugarfree gum, etc I didnt go out on my back veranda for 6 weeks as this was where i would sit for ages and smoke and i knew just being out there was too much temptation....you need to replace the old habits with new ones ;) ) You can do it mate! If you slip a bit, who cares, just keep at it and you will get there! :D ;) good on you milo!

It is habit, and thats it

I had a few today but threw them away at lunch time... So I got to be strong now. I am not going to the shops alone for a while or on my lunch breaks so I cant buy any

hey mel

i think you should focus on one thing at a time. sit and make some decisions-

a. stop smoking or
b. lose weight

i think you are trying to concentrate on too much and its why you keep going back to smoking. if it were me id concentrate on the weightloss first only because if you can see the weight going down on the scales and feeling better about yourself inside as well as out, i reckon you will find that later on down the track the smoking will ease each day. when you see the success of one thing happening you will gain the confidence you need to see the other goal within reach.

Just an idea write out a shopping list when you go to the shops & only buy the thing's on the list & stay clear of any registers near where you can purchased smokes that way it not as much temptation to buy.

Good on you Mel. Gracie is so right. I used to smoke 60 a day but using patches I found it relatively easy to quit. As long as you're committed you can do it. I don't feel like having a smoke. I don't miss it at all.

I once asked my kids, would you like to live in a 2 story house near the beach? They enthusiastically said yes and I said, "Well don't be stupid and smoke like your dad & I. If we didn't smoke we could be living there now."
