Hi Owen

I read Allen Carr’s Easyway book and find it is my main aid for stopping smoking. I have also watched Chris Skoyles video’s and I found them very interesting. He has made so many of them and I have watched most of them, but well worth checking out the titles to find one which you can identify with. 
I live in the Uk and like his voice and he is very down to earth so I relate well to him. There are probably lots of videos from lots of other people and it’s probably worth looking and finding that connection. 
I hope you are well

Linda

thanks Linda, I have also read Allen Carr's book twice, and also use it as my main aid as well, I draw on what I read in it very often during My quit. Skoyles is new to me and I am going to check out more of his vids. when I get a chance. Hope you are doing well and staying strong !

I hope you had a real nice time with your sister.  I am doing good, still hanging in there.  2 months is coming up soon for you.  Any plans for treating yourself ?

You are almost at 2 months, Viv.  Anything special you plan to do for yourself to celebrate ?   Keep up the great work, Viv.

I won’t lie, it’s been challenging for me the last few days! The junkie thinking came back, just when I thought I’d gotten over it.

The junkie can be a really sneaky little pest, can't he ?  I notice certain things I do really set him off.  I used to smoke before, during and after EVERYTHING, so this is all new for me, too. What does one do when they are done with something ?  That is the question for me.  Definitely learning as I go.  Maybe I will take up yodeling ! blush

I googled it, I had never heard of it.  I will have to check it out.  Good for you, getting all productive and stuff.  I have moments of doing stuff, but never know what to do when I am done. wink Still working some of this out. 

Yeah, I'm still mostly there too...and today, right back into the slacker hole. Grrrrr. Have yet to do any work. As for what I do after....I'm not standing dumbstruck in my kitchen anymore, but I still have to think real hard about it.
