I think this sounds like a great plan for you!  I can tell you that I gained some weight but not much and now after hitting 4 months, I have started losing weight again, my energy levels are coming back up slowly and I am getting things done.  

Good luck and I will be here cheering you on!

Thanks Cathy,

I had a torrid time last night but I managed to resist the temptation to smoke, I rang the I can Quit line and received some helpful advice. "You need nicotine but not cigarette", she  said, so I used the Mist., Great that you continue on with your quit Cathy, that is perseverance, well done.

Hey Anthony, i agree focusing on one goal or two is the way to do it. You plant the seed and then wait for it to take root. Im back on day 2 i believe of being quit. Been tired lately, going to bed have a good night.

Its something new for me just having three goals max, I to am on 2 days heading into my third, I am using a patch 21mg and the Nicotine Mist spray occasionally. great to see you still trying, we never give up quitting, good luck don't get to stressed, my worst trigger time is after tea, the cravings are intense, rang quitline the counsellor said more nicotine no cigarettes. I used the spray and it worked , I felt calmer...

Sorry to hear you are having some rough times but happy that you resisted!  I see below you mention "after tea time" and just a thought, for a while I had to switch some things up.......the time I drank my coffee and in the evenings what I drank.....even had to switch up my shower time as well and where I always sat........just something to think about if you can figure out the times that really bother you!

I talked with my counselor yesterday and this may have some parallels with quitting smoking. I was kinda scared moving and we did an exercise of a decision table. You decide what you want to do, steps you have to take, and what impact that will have on our lives. The difficult part is marking on a scale of 1 being the weakest to 5 go to any lengths of how sure you are that you will succeed, and then between 1-5 how you think that decision will impact your life. 

I hear ya about sleep, recently i had a lightbulb moment, of who would of thunk it.. That i have also been having sleeping problems, but i also have been drinking 5-8 cups of coffee a day. So im trying to cut back to only 1 or 2, and i got naturally tired one night. Hope that helps, thanks for the encouragement im on day 4, and i did decide to move, its a totally non smoking building has a fitness room, so all positive energy
