    So the good news is that Raewyn has made it through her first weekend as a non smoker... being the modest wee thing she is she wont rave about it, but I will :)

    I have been so impressed with Raewyns attitude, a lot of people that give up smoking get real grumpy and angry etc, but this little lady has been in the best of moods, she has maintained a positive attitude even through the cravings and the close calls!

    Im so proud of you!!.....8 Days and counting!

    Keep on going, you may never notice the change in fitness because it happens so gradually, but I would say that if you started jogging/running, you would notice it when you look back over a month of consistency. See what happens, instead of taking a 5-10 min break outside and sitting down like you used to, take 5-10 minutes and see how far you can run and get back, 5 minutes out, 5 minutes back and RUN RUN RUN, no more of the filthy habit.


    GOOD LUCK AGAIN [​IMG]

    Nice going Raisin. If the cravings ever get bad again, just remember, you only have to get through that day. You can worry aout the next day when you come to it.

    After ten years of 1 to 2 packs a day I have been nicotine free for three months and seven days. That's 3,942 cigarettes I have not inhaled since I quit and $689 I have saved. To anyone who has recently quit or wanting to quit I highly suggest you check out these sites. They are full of information on nicotine addiction. It's easy to just keep smoking, challange yourselves to taking the harder path, it's worth it folks.
