    Careful!

    Posted in Quit experiences 9 May 2018

    I've been doing well with quitting. Even had to stop alcohol, as every time I drank I'd end up smoking again. Problem is I've begun playing pokies to relieve stress. I'm either at work or at home cleaning and it feels like it's just a neverending workload without a break. A few months ago I'd have a cuppa and smoke when stressed or even go out to a club etc and have a few drinks, smokes and dance...

Now I have to spend hours going through paperwork and emails etc finding anything overlooked and writing out reports to try and sort everything out.

    I've spent the last few days washing walls, curtains, cleaning carpets and washing all my clothes to remove the old smoke smell. My house is smelling pretty good! So today I went and had my hair and nails done for the first time in over a year. I also bought an electric toothbrush and the latest stain removal/whitening toothpaste and matching mouthwash. I feel fresh on fresh and clean on clean.

    I have given up smoking many times. Anything from a week to a few months but the minute I go out and have a drink (Alcohol) the cravings hit full on and I begin smoking again. THIS time I took a few months to give up alcohol first. I would normally go out once a week and also drink at home one night a week, on those nights I could smoke more than one packet of smokes and sometimes finish two whol...
