Went out to the pub last night for a family get together. Was worrried how i would go because of smokers in family. It went well. Had lots of support from family and friends and those that did smoke smelt terrible. My advise at this stage is that you feel like a smoke, sniff a smoker. Yuk. LOL
Not so bad, because I still have a cold and cough so that makeshifts it easier to say NO. I wa
So far so good. It hasn’t but that’s hard, partly because I st
If you are reading , I believe it is right to assume that you are either looking for real life experiences after quitting or about to quit and getting mentally prepared for the journey.
Either way, I want to happily share some insights from my journey of 4 months without a single puff.

Day 5!! Feeling great - It’s so true in saying why would I want to crave such a nasty, time wasting health destroying all consuming toxic substance.
