So its into week four now. I have officially been three weeks of the cigarettes!
I have had moments that would have driven me out for a calming cigarette over the last week, one being an accident in one of the shops that i had to get first aiders etc on the scene for... and i havent had one. Even london was a challenge. Think is fair to say that if there are a group of you going some where, try make it an even no. Not nice when people group off into pairs...someone gets left alone.
Infact if i go past someone smoking a cigarette the smell of the smoke turn my nose up in disgust. its actually horrendous! to think THAT had been going into my chest for the last eight years!! Ick! makes me extremely disgusted with myself... but in saying that, i was getting a load of cigs together to bring to one of the shops and the smell was nice! so, lesson there is, tobacco only smells good when its unlit wrapped up in foil and cardboard.
The binging continued but toward the end of the week i just go so fustrated with myself that i had enough. I've had three cups of regular tea since thursday, which meant no bickie binging, i broke my easter egg up into pieces and rationed it to small amounts for over a five day period... and i'm sticking to it!. Brought risotto to work so that i didnt binge on choc and crisps... dont usually eat much crisps but i have been lately. I'm only going to snack on rice cakes and dark chocolate and suck sweets instead of anything and everything and i'm going to drink pots and pots of herbal and fruit tea, which i have! Right now i'm drinking T2's beautifully tasty tummy tea. good for the ibs.
I have had easter cake...
So if i can keep the smoking at bay, get back onto my IBS diet, stop binging, and drink tea of the good kind, with the odd regular tea treat. have twinings everyday on my tea shelf (yes i have a shelf of tea ), and keep up the walking, i should be healthier than i was last summer.
Hopefully i'll be able to kick off the six pounds i put on and get down to the ideal weight i've been trying to get back to for five years! (which is around ten stone. Would be nice to be a size 10-12 again.
Anyway thats my update! next sunday will be my one month no smoking! we will party! I treated myself to a bottle of my favourite perfume yesterday (hypnotic poison by Dior) for getting to three weeks.
Truth of the matter is, it wouldnt have been as easy to kick if it wasnt for the fact that most of my friends dont smoke, and they have been a great encouragement! Even my online ones.
