I’m hope you are doing well. I have received emails and I thank you all but I don’t how to respond. Thank you again my friends

    Hi. im happy to see you here and congratulations on your day 11. When i was new here, someone advised me to do breathing exercises.You might want to try it too, it was so helpful back then and until now. In the coming days you might also become restless , but its just normal as we go through the phase of withdrawal, but im sure you can overcome them. Goodluck in your quitting journey. take care and be safe

    If you are meaning taking deep breaths, It may be because deep breaths will relax you and you will be less anxious. Did you know that you can lower your blood pressure in this way. I also think the breathing exercises keep you engaged and you don't think of the craving and therefore it will pass more quickly.

    Congratulations on your Day 11. Every day will get easier and we are stronger than nicotine. Keep busy and Keep Positive!

    You receive an e-mail when someone like I , responds to your post( on YOUR page)

    You can respond to me @Happiness or to the members as a whole by simply writing a comment at the end of your page. We will not be e-mailed as it is YOUR page. We are likely to check back when we see that responses have been added.(The number of comments will change) Should you really want a reply from someone specific, then click on their name (as Happiness shows above) It will take you to that persons stories, and you can make a comment or inquiry and THEY will be notified.
    Don't forget to check back for their answer! (on both your page and the one of theirs that you wrote to them on).

    I hope this helps.

    Great Job. Keep it up!

    Hi Salby, congratulations on Day 11. Day 1 you weren't too sure now look you are going great guns at day 11. Hang in there, you need to expect some minor discomforts throughout the change, it will be all worth it. After all a smoke will not fix anything, only defeat you. You CAN and are doing this, just remember NOPE🌞

    Hi, Salby

    Congratulations! You are only a few days short of a fortnight! That's a heck of an achievement.

    It gets easier...just keep going forwards. You're doing great! x

    Hi Salby,,, Congratulations on Day 11 !!! I would say Day 11 is very far from Day 1. Well done. Glad you are slowly feeling better and I do think you will continue feeling better. You are off to a good start, keep up the good work!
