Day 51 = Winning

Posted in Staying quit 09 Sep 2021

Day 51 and im estatic about that. I'm not estatic about wk 11 in Lockdown with no end in sight yet....... sigh. I miss the gym, a huge part of my dopamine fix.

Its the times at the moment and I know lockdown will not last forever but the chhosing to become a nonsmoker will last, as I cherish that so much.

I know I shld be doing workouts at home, but its not the same feels or fun as with gym buddies to laugh along with. NOPE!!

I have been keeping busy refurbishing an outdoor set of chest of drawers for tools. Revamping them and painting them red to match the new bbq red hood that we got hubby for Fathers Day👌☺

    You got this Leeann, come on this is the last time you ever have to quit. You know the lessons you have learnt from previous, so don’t fall down the rabbit hole, remember those lessons always. Go deserve this win for yourself and no one else. You should be sooooo proud of yourself, you have hung in there and kept trying because you want this so badly. You are there already...woo hoo.....what a legend. So happy for you

    Yes Leeann, We remain in lockdown down here too! Never mind Robyn, over there with no Covid Virus in site in her state! But. All jokes aside.... take your 50 plus days and never go through that again, NEVER. Because we Dont smoke.
    WE have got this now.
    Dont worry about hubby still stuck in it. He will get himself out of his situation, when he's had enough,.
    Stay strong for yourself please.
    We Dont Smoke.

    Thank you Nope2021, Robn and Puffnomore for the support and encouragement. Robn I will not fall down the rabbit hole, Ive got this, Ive fallen down it too many times before. I will not allow any situation to let me crumble again, I do not smoke any more, I am a non smoker, non lozenger user now and it feels good. I am exvited for the day that gyms reopen along with restaurants, but yes I miss the gym, its my 3rd home after work lol

    You go girl ! :)
    Let go of any thought process of a smoker. There is no reason in the world for just one, or just one puff.. You simply don't smoke. That was just something stupid we USED to do. :) We can't push a smoker, but maybe, when Hubby sees you shine, he will decide to quit too :)

    Go Leeann,
    I am right behind you and always will be by 4 days 😂
    You should be so proud of yourself and specifically such an achievement in these challenging lockdown times.
    Keep on going, love to read about your journey and know that you are an inspiration to me and so many others.
    Well done 👍

    Thanks team Ar2121 and Jessfreeof we are fellow winners with Jess ruling the newbie pack🙌☺ We all draw strength and conviction from current newbies and the wise owls who beat this habit to the kerb donkeys ago but guide us with their patience and wisdom. Myself personally have been a work in progress on becoming a non smoker, I mean seriously check out my join date....... Standing now refusing to fail and feeling gratitude for my quitfam🙌☺

    You will do it this time Leeann. You are a fighter and a Winner! You did not give up like many do. Those who CHOOSE a better path and WANT it more than smoking. , Those who BELIEVE that they can succeed .....CAN!

    Congrats on Day 51 milestone. You are already a non-smoker!
    I hope that you are a HAPPY non-smoker now, grateful for the strength to overcome this terrible addiction and very proud of this fantastic accomplishment! You have won that FREEDOM and regained control of your life. Isn't it wonderful? Remember that feeling and celebrate every day!
