Colouring in!

Posted in Hints and tips 28 May 2016

I'm nearing the end of day 6 smoke free! I bought myself one of the cool colouring in books they make for adults and some gel pens, it has been a great distraction for me. When ever I've had a craving or my kids are just driving me crazy I sit down and colour for 10 minutes until I've got my head together.

It may not be for everyone but it's done wonders for me 😊

    That's a great idea. I think colouring in is therapeutic and definitely something to keep hands busy. 6 days, well done!!

    Yes, that is what I have done and found a new enjoyment in life as I do puzzle games on my computer. Keeping busy doing something different, not associated with my previous habit.
