testing my resolve

Posted in Staying quit 06 Feb 2012

Hi everyone, I am now oon day 17 without nicotine. Last week was a bit tough but I kept telling myself I can do this without smokes.  My hibby is still smoking but I think he may be considering giving up... Hope so for his sake, it will be his choice, I am not forcing him... I am doing it subtly!

I feel so much better except for a few side effects, I try to exercise every day, and need to drink more water... I went out to the local club and wasn't tempted to have a smoke at all...... so that was good.

I have been boyed by all the stories here.

    Congratulations Heather! It feels good hey. I'm at day 21. Must be harder for you with hubby smoking so double applause to you!! My wife has never smoked but she has constantly asked me to give up since before we were married (14 years ago). I agree with you that reading the stories on this site is a huge help. It's good to know that other people are going through the same experience, challenges and being successful. A person who has not gone through this can never understand.
