Oh good...never sure if my natter is helpful or just...natter. Congratulations on a week!!! Woohoo!! Way to go! muscleclapblushhibiscusstar2!

You mentioned Sarah in one of the posts...I’ve been following this story. It sure saddens me to see these kinds of things, anywhere really. So happy to see the Women there banding together, and the men folk that are supportive too. Right, no Boris statues needed on every corner for COVID successes, (other leaders either)  but, it was good to see him speak out supportively for this. It is much better leadership than having flames stoked for sure...
ok...back in line for me...just wanted you to know there are others around the World thinking about this and aware and supportive. 
 

Also, my partner does the Actor thing here for medical students. So is interesting to know this type of training is other places! It is a side job for him that he’s been doing a long while and he has a lot of fun with it. 
 

Celebrate you today!!!blush

Thank you, Missis Caz - I'm astounded to be here, but here I seem to be, and I'm not knocking it - just surprised.   I couldn't  have picked a worse week to quit smoking if I'd tried - pretty much everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong, and then a few little extra problems as well - but somehow I haven't picked up a cigarette. Who'd a thought it?

Thanks for the yelling - I can hear you, and I love it.

Thank you, Jeff!  Or would you prefer to be called Nope?  

I DO feel better, most of the time.  When I don't I feel a lot worse, but I know that's junky thinking, because there are NO pluses to smoking! relaxed  And yes, I'm breathing better, smelling better, not feeling embarrassed, feeling proud of myself.  It's all good, really.  I've had a hell of a week with family stuff, but I'm still standing, hugely because of you and everyone else on here.  Thank you for caring, and I hope you're having a good day too.

Thank you!   Yes, it's been a sad and difficult week, and good to know that so many people care.   There is more good in the world than bad, I'm sure.

Lovely too to know that the Actor thing happens elsewhere.

Have you found a replacement for the cigarettes to help with your chronic fatigue?   Fortunately, my fatigue has more to do with poor diet and not enough exercise.  What could you use in place of cigarettes?

Thank you Anne for writing me back. It has been suggested that I meditate or nap. I am trying to get better at self care and have made some progress but still have a long way to go.  I also have the issue of being so tired I sometimes don't realize that I am.  I want to live so I need to work on this. How are you? What is your quit like?

Thank you for the beautiful words Lori, and for the tips pray Love the comparison with waves, it is relaxing and helpful way to think about dealing with feelings while quitting dolphin  being in the moment is hard sometimes, but important to practice.

I think without this forum I would have, and it's a bit of a mystery to me really. 

same for me. I come here when feel that I might smoke soon and so far it helped me a lot - didn't imagine it would make so much difference. Before I was thinking that I can do it myself, but it's easier and fun together punch
