Closing in on 5 weeks quit and the cravings are less. I’m feeling much more confident. I’m finding the best way to beat cravings is distraction. Whatever you can think of to help. Write a list of things you can do instead of smoking. Who wants to smoke anyway it has nothing going for it - super expensive, causes cancer and heart disease, ageing of the skin plus it really stinks. So many other rea...
Just checking in as it’s important to keep doing so. Socialising at night with alcohol is really easy now to the point where I forget about smoking. The biggest help for me has just been time. At the start I would talk about it all the time and I think for me that was really important. The brain is a wonderful thing . Take care everyone and believe on yourselves x

I have to admit it’s hard - the day is not so bad night time is quite tough though. I’m doing things to replace smoking in general and next week I’m joining the gym! Need to get some weight off too. I’m trying to stay positive and focus on positive things and thoug...
Keep saving money which keeps me focused on health too!
I've had countless quit attempts over the years, but this time was very different.
I've been quit now for four years and two days.
After losing my Mum ten years ago I thought I'd never quit. She was always my reason for wanting to quit in the past and my cheerleader too.
But four years ago I was so sick of being hungry and longed to quit for my own reasons.
So one morning I went and bought so...
