So far so good.

Had too much to do today to think about smoking much. Tomorrow night is a girls night out and we are going to see Peter Murphy. Wooo hoooo! This will be super fun! I have 2 girlfriends that still smoke but the other bunch quit years ago. Shouldn't be too bad there I don't think. Just gotta stay off of the smoking patio. K, I don't have to stay off of the patio, I just don't think I'll go out there because it is a big smoke fest. No reason, ya know? Anyway, I will keep my quit and I will c

Do You Have Any Idea What You're Smoking? A List Of Chemicals...

Tobacco smoke contains a deadly mix of more than 7000 chemicals and at least 70 of those chemicals are known to cause cancer and at least 250 are known to be harmful. The list of 599 additives approved by the US Government for use in the manufacture of cigarettes is something every smoker should see. Submitted by the five major American cigarette companies to the Dept. of Health and Human Services in April of 1994, this list of ingredients had long been kept a secret. Tobacco companies reporti

Do Something

Today Tuesday get off your arse and stop feeling sorry for myself. I think it is because I quit smoking because it's a money thing. At $22.20 for a pkt of 25 it adds up over one every day. New Zealand dollar is 86c to your dollar so you know what I mean. $159.60 a week that's 638.40 a month. I have to make myself think of the health benefits I am re-reading Alan Carr's Easyway this week. Let's hope it sinks in. In the mean time I keep feeling sorry for myself and I am loosing nothing.

Ahhh..another day done.

Ahhh.. I made it another day. I woke up this morning and wanted a smoke. I didn't do it. I worked in the yard. I love that! I thought alot about smoking..especially when my hubs was smoking. I could smell it. I didn't smoke then either. I sat in the shade watching my sweet boy play in the pool. I didn't bite him. Hahaha.. I'm a shark...get it? Anyway a breeze was blowing and it was simply lovely. Thought about smoking. Took deep breaths and didn't smoke. I ate a big giant dinner..no smoking. I

Good Morning Monday

Good morning Monday. I would really like to sit here on my couch and drink coffee and not go to work. It is usually easier to not smoke during the day when I am at work, however. There's a plus. Deeep breaths. OK, let's go.

3 months and a few days

Goodness my brain has been busy!! It's so different now, the thinking, much easier but still conflicting.   I know for sure I will not smoke, no matter what. 3 Reasons for this. 1 I want to be a non smoker 2 I simply cannot do that withdrawal again, never in all my days would I have called myself an addict, until I realized I was an addict. 3 My fear of smoking now far outweighs my fear of quitting and the random thought neurons I still possess. Reading that back I still run by fear rather

Sunday

So these blogs are extremely boring, meant only to keep me on the straight and narrow for my diet. Sundays are the toughest days for me, b/c not at work but gotta stay on the path.   So far so good. For my cheat day Saturday I had a tonnnnn of cookies. It was great.

Turned Another Corner

Woke up this morning feeling different   cannot explain it just different - relaxed almost   bonnies thread about her 13 cigarettes made me think about my 3 I have been hanging onto   I kept them to keep up my fight as I had something physical to fight   I have realised the fight is in my head   I drowned them today and binned them - no emotion to it at all   No longer feel scared or need to fight - I think thats why I feel relaxed it`s like an end of a battle     It feels weird b

6 Months Hitch

The last time I quit I hit 6 months and just tossed it away - I did not care and did not look back - it took me years to get back on the quit and now I wished my attitude did not suck back then   no one is invincible and everyone can and will be at some point affected by smoking   education and not denial has changed my attitude - but boy what some wasted years, money and health!!!   I have face the truth this time, however hard, I have learned things about myself i did not know, some goo

So Close to a Cigarette today

Long working day for me on a Thursday, have not thought about smoking at work at all and dont miss it, until today. We have a new Service Control Manager that has started, young 23, adorable, and today he kept disappearing for 5 to 10 mins at a time, yuuup a smoker!! I challenged him today, could smell it all the time, all the receptors pinged in my brain, arggghhh no not now, told him I had stopped over 4 months ago, and his reply "give into the crave," WTF....took out his packet of cigarette

Almost 3 months

I feel like I ought to sing a rendition of Elton John's "I'm still standing" and I smile at this. I had so many failures with quits I'm not sure I've fully taken in that I don't smoke. Yet I have, I KNOW and have known for sometime, truth to tell, that I'm done, no more smoking.   I'm not sure of the point of this blog?? lol. So me, I start writing with no idea of the end game. I wish I was one of those together people who always had a plan :)   It's my magic number coming up next though. I'

Day One

So far so good, did biggest loser power ab blast at lunch and then 20 min on Jacob's ladder after work. (I was on a time crunch because my ride coming to pick me up. Have found it much easier for me, and more cost effective in general, for hb to drive me. His car gets way better mpg than my element.)   Since my weakness is late night snacking on multiple granola bars, again this week I have not a granola bar in the house. If I want to snack tonight it's apple or pineapple. Damn sweet toot

5/27

This is pry going to be a real snooze fest, made really for the main purpose of me getting on the diet wagon and staying there (except like July 4th holiday weekend, holiday weekends are freebies, amirite.)   So, starting tomorrow - I am for really realz gonna be better at eating. I did so good the last 2 weeks, then blew it this weekend.   So this is my lil 'self help' blog. Help for the helpless. Or the clueless. Or those in love with cookies. Whatevs.   This here is by far the best

Time standing still?

I know it's not possible of course but it all feels a bit samey at the moment, it feels like time isn't really passing. I just put in June celebrations to the calender, or started too. Put in it will be 3 months for me next month and thought "Jeez, is that all"! I guess this can be taken in a good way. I look at the progress I've made, the limited triggers I now get and that's at 2 months and some but it feels weird and out of whack, like it should be longer, not sure why.   I also look ho

Smoking dreams

Normally in my dream I say no to smoking. Last night I didn't see me smoke it but I put one smoked all the way through out in an ashtray for my sister to say at that point, hey I thought you gave up. I looked at her and looked at the fag butt and started crying as I hadn't meant to smoke.... woke myself up actually crying.   Our brains are crazy things and I did calm when I realized it wasn't real.   Intense way of reminding myself I do not want to be a smoker and relapse would devastate
