THANKYOU so much to you who have replied to my story with encouragement and what feels like love! So nice.So, I am now 8 days with no puffs, this time is different.Not sure if it's because I am now middle aged,or if I am simply ready,but my mind seems to be in tune with my resolution. Mind you,I am practising on my mat like a demon! Another thing,I have been practiing yoga for 7 years and am the fittest and strongest I have ever been, I asked myself" what are you DOING?' on one hand you are really looking after yourself, yet on the other, slowly smoking your lungs to death....
I could not think of an answer apart from 'man, get your act together and be in some sort of harmony in your life'
I really like breathing.I do not like coughing and spitting up phlegm every morning,it's gross and totally destructive.
so; benefits; my car and apartment now have not smoke stink!!! Here's a tip; put a glass of vinegar in the space ( car,room,wherever) leave for a day.Voila! the vinegar absorbs the smoke stench. Sooooo good. Another excellent thing is my eyes; I feel like I can see so clearly in just 7 days,and no more eye soreness,which was a big thing when I was smoking. My skin,whilst that of a 54 year old,just looks good! So good that I had my eyebrows seen to on Sunday as my 7 day " good on you" reward.I am saving the cash I am not spending on smoking in a box and have yet to decide what I will do with it after 1 year.WOOOOOHOOO. I have had very few cravings since day 3,when a twinge of " I want a smoke ' come,I let the thought float along and out of my mind by doing something else,or thinking of another thought. Go everyone, you have got this.Who needs to feed their bodies smoke ? Not us!! Stay strong and live life fully.
Have a great puff free day.x
