Hey friends 🌻 hope everyone is coping during this crazy time in life globally.

It's been up and down but....

Wow.... I feel amazing. Now and then I think... I'd love a smoke with my husband...but no... I busy myself with our beautiful kids, keep busy doing many things around the house, knitting scarves for my babes, back to work after school hols, rewarding myself with a nice glass of wine.... I'm feeling good.

I've always kept fit and been an athlete but I feel brand new.....not coughing, not tasting tobacco. Fresh and clean.

Seeing the joy in my son and daughter's faces are so worth it..... mum's quit!!!

I know I will have challenges of temptation but I'm determined to keep strong because the positive side of quitting out smoking.

I've been using zyban for a week and a half.....I wasn't sure because it changed my thoughts and moods... anxiety, lack of sleep.....

but I decided to halve the daily intake.... what a difference. I'm sleeping again and my mind is clear. I feel healthy and content.. the best thing is not feeling guilty because of my little people.

I love our home being lit by candle light... lovely fragrances... warm and comforting....

My first treat to myself will be lots of beautiful scented candles which will fill our house and bring beauty and will probably cost $40.....

I was spending $130 on tobacco a week.

I'll also get the kids a favourite dvd each and my husband a nice wine.......

A treat worth so much more and costs so less.

Hope I keep this perspective. Praying I do. Hoping so much my brothers and sisters we can keep strong, keep each other strong and keep positive.

Much love mumma lioness ❤️🙏

    You are adjusting really well, and if you bring those lifestyle changes into your home, you will breath in the happiness you share with your family. Candles and all (NOPE) not one puff ever.
