Hi all, 

I am coming up on 7 months smoke free!! Happy days!! It is hard to believe it. I am finding the last two, three weeks emotionally draining to say the very very least. I did not caved back into smoking I have come to far for that. I know it will not help , but funny how the mind sometimes tricks you into thinking that it might help, just for a fleeting moment in stressful situations. I have been meditating quiet alot over the last few weeks and it helps  to release thoughts and is very relaxing. I have been off running for the last few weeks due to a recurring injury in the foot, the last 6 months or so. However, I have been back out the last few days taking it nice a slow , and it is a life saver, literally!!! I am slowly loosing the weight gain thank god, and I am slowly coming back to myself, well it is more like adjusting to a new self , for the better. Walk forward.  I hope everyone is doing well, and keep up the good work of being smoke free. Stay strong everyone I wish you luck and  continued success on staying smoke free.

    Hi Converse, it's good to hear you are staying strong through what sounds like a very rough patch. It's such a learned habit to reach for a cigarette when stressed, after all we've done it for years. I reckon every time we don't bow in to that niggling little voice of addiction, we gain more power to fight it, and to unlearn old habits. All the best, seven months is brilliant.
