Its been about 3 weeks since I last had a cigarette… I think. I don’t keep track of the day I stop otherwise I never stop thinking about it! And I learnt over the years not to tell anyone I was planning to stop either- otherwise they keep asking how its going and just remind you what you’re missing! I am exceptionally lucky in that I don’t find it too hard to stop (don’t hate me). When I’m smoking I smoke like a chimney… 20 cigarettes between 6pm and midnight is about average- and I seldom smoke at work.

And I realised this morning when a colleague brought me what I realised was my second cup of coffee for today- that I didn’t have any coffee yesterday or the day before!

Now if I could just cut out half the eating…

    Good for you! I’m off a similar bad habit myself, but not as successful.

    PS my wackmobiles blog has some must-see photos moving down it every three days, so it’s going by fast!

    You do rock! I must have my caffeine! And that no nicotine thing is huge! I’m married to an addict and his family and that can be so extremely hard. Good for you!

    YOU ROCK! I hope you're rewarding yourself with something fantastically pampering and/or naughty & completely self-indulgent.

    That's how I would be working this situation.
