Well here I am, a year to the day after I decided to quit smoking. 365 days smoke-free. There were times I never, ever thought I would get here. At times I thought I was going crazy, that I would never be the same. It was foggy and yuck and I didn't like who I was without ciggies. It felt like losing a best friend.
But I did it. I pushed through - and you can too! I don't care if it sounds che...
I want to share my story with other people trying to quit in the hope that it will inspire them to do the same…..
Today marks six months since my last cigarette and I never thought I would get this far.
When I first decided I wanted to quit, I didn’t anticipate how hard it would be.
The first few weeks were a living nightmare. I was angry, I cried, I was depressed.
There was no j...
I have made it to 51 days! Wooo hoooo!!!!

That’s not to say I’m go...
It's been a massive struggle but I have not had a ciggy for two whole weeks :)
(applaud and throw flowers if you want.)
Still getting a little teary, angry and anxious -but fee more in control after day 14.
On the weekend I even went to a pub, drank beer and sat in the outside area - Probably because I am a little cocky and was tipsy. But yay me - did not have a smoke.
And I am official...
Something stressful happened to me this morning and I cannot stop crying. The tears just keep coming?....
Is this normal? Have quit for 5 days.
I haven't had a smoke in over two days.
After it crossing my mind for a few weeks I woke up on Monday March 3 and decided I would quit smoking.
I arrived at work feeling optimistic and good about my decision. I knew enough to recognise that my morning coffee outside with the workmates would have to be sacrificed so I smugly headed upstairs to make a peppermint tea. (Look at me I thought, I have...
