Love your reasons Mercy,

Life is to good to waste it behind a cloud of addiction, I've found that exercise is the key to good mental health, and floods the brain with feel good chemicals, like adrenaline dopamine and oxytocin, also having likeminded friends around you to support you on your journey, Sorry to hear about your complications, but by not smoking you will improve your outcomes I'm sure

Kind regards

Anthony

Persevere Lubbercat with the correct mindset you will do it, are you using a quit aid? I am using a patch and an occasional inhaler, works for me, but we are all different, I find I am drinking a lot of coffee lately, I'll have to put a check on that, ice cold water is good through a straw, anyway good luck with the quit...

Kind regards

Anthony

That is so true - God always turns what could have been bad and turns it into something good. I got Covid then that made me quit smoking. I now have over 4 months. Keep going. You can do it!

Hi Anthony, 

I  love to exercise. It makes me feel better. I am sorry I missed it this last few weeks due to illness. I find it is great for stress and anxiety such as from a quit.

I hope you will be one of my likeminded friends ..

Yeah i believe that is key to be around like minded individuals, i thought i could hang around people that smoke but i saw that i a am not yet ready. That one individual being my dad i saw him about 3 weeks back and smoked a few with him, didnt enjoy them just wanted to keep him company, but immediately quit the same night and just started from the beginning again, i almost slipped again here with another person i met at bus stop, but i did a quick mental exercise that i would want to stop after i had the cig, it was difficult to say no, it was a mental battle.. Im glad i did, i just cant hang out w smokers yet, it may be a long while.
