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 !

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....relaxed 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. blush

Hi Brenda

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

Linda

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.  relaxed  So all is good and give Reggie a hug for me.
