How is everyone doing ? Would love to hear from everyone.
All good brenda. Have just returned from a few days with family. Even my daughter - hard core smoker - has quit. She looks amazing. My sister is the last one smoking. Yay......we will be a non smoking family yet.
How are you doing?
Good news about your daughter !! Hope you enjoyed your family time. All is good with me, one day at a time, I am learning to live without the smokes. How is the summer going for you ? We are freezing our tushes in the Northern Hemisphere. A high of 21 here yesterday. Just grateful I didn't have to go out and smoke. Was actually a lovely day, curled up with a good book and the fireplace going. Very nice ! Glad you are kickin' the butts, Viv. Hope you have a great week !
Congratulations on 2 months free, Michaela !!!!
A little rough today, Brenda. Terrific threes aren’t quite as terrific as I’d hoped. But nevertheless I am persisting!
How are you doing?
So sorry you are having a rough day but very proud of you hanging in there. I have those days myself but so glad that they only happen occasionally now. I wasn't able to visit the forum yesterday, I would have answered you sooner. I had to move all the furniture out of my house to have the carpet re-stretched and then move it back in. I had a real pity party because I am not as young as I used to be, I was working so hard, I should have a smoke !! Luckily, I remembered to be grateful that I have a home, furniture and carpet.... and the smoking, cranky thoughts disappeared. Alas, the getting older stuck around, oh well, beats the alternative....So yes, I have those rough days too. Anyway, here's to wishing us better days and I hope your's has improved also.
im sorry I haven’t posted on here for a while, I’ve just been so busy with work and home life. I hope you and everyone in our August/September group are well. We are halfway through our terrific third month and although I know that I’ve put a few added pounds of weight on I am still happily a non smoker. I went to the gym this week to a body balance class which was a mixture of tai chi, yoga and Pilates. I enjoyed it so much I’ve signed up to go to the class again next week. I wouldn’t say I’m substituting cigarettes for food but more like food tastes so much better now and I do have a sweet tooth. I am going to start now being more mindful of what I am eating!!
Have a lovely weekend
So good to hear from you and I am so glad you are doing well. The class sounds great, I think exercise of any kind helps with the weight and the smoking issues. Kinda keeps us on track. I am just going over 200 miles on my bike and 3042 cigs not smoked, so I am sure my body is saying thank you. Had a few rough times but I am getting so good at telling the junkie within to take a hike. So all is good and give Reggie a hug for me.
How are you doing today ? I hope all is well and you are having a much better day.
