    Thank goodness for my stop smoking buddy

    Well, I have never done a thread before but having a tricky time today so thought I would share my thoughts.
    I stopped smoking 7 weeks ago, the same day as one of my close friends. We text each other daily at the start and we have both managed to stay off them even though our OH's smoke.
    We are both really chuffed but last week we went away on a ski-ing holiday. We had a nightmare, both really struggled and ended up puffing away on our e-cigs most of the time. We admitted that we would have succumbed if the other one had not been there, so thank goodness for my friend!
    Thanks for listening.

    12 weeks now, my friend started smoking again on week 12, last time she stopped, so quite hard work at the moment. We will get through this together. Tough though.

    Well done! 12 weeks is amazing! Are you still finding it hard? Or is it because your friend found it hard at this point last time that you say it's a hard time atm?

    I'm only on week 2 myself, I stopped with the Allen Carr book and so far so good.

    Anyway, WELL DONE! Keep going, you're doing great

    Very well done. Unfortunately I can't relate since I've never gotten into smoking and never will! I've heard how hard it is though and I'm glad you're seeing it through and trying your best. Smoking costs so much and does so much damage to your body.

    Again, congratulations and keep going! Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you, yes I'm still going and finding things a little easier now. 3 months gone and struggling to get into my clothes! Started back on AAW8 this morning to try and get back in control and upping my steps too, phew. I refuse to buy a bigger size although it would be far more comfortable.
    Keep going Large Lump, the difference in my health has been amazing and means I really don't want to have a cigarette now, although OH still puffing away . Stopping for over 2 weeks is brilliant and you must be feeling the difference too.
    Thanks for your support.

    Well done to you too! I'm still off the cigarettes and battling the bulge, feel a lot fitter and my clothes are more comfortable although not loose yet. I try to eat nuts instead of sweets but my portion control is way off! Stay positive.

    Well it will be 4 months on Wednesday since I had a real cigarette and really hoping that this is the last time that I have to stop. Still using my e-cig at times but really low nicotine now and feeling so much better. My weight seems to have stabilised although not quite as low as I would have liked! Can't have everything.
    The last time I stopped I had patches and moved onto the lowest strength at 4 months and found it impossible to keep the patch on because it was so small. I decided that I could manage without them and guess what, I started smoking almost immediately, I think that it was mainly in my mind set and the fact that there are always cigarettes around the house because my husband smokes 40+ a day.
    I am so determined this time and love having a bit of money to treat myself to new clothes and a new handbag that doesn't smell of smoke!
    Here's to my next milestone, I'm aiming to be off my e-cig completely by 6 months so will work hard towards that. Hope all you other smoke free folks are doing OK. Take care.

    Still going OK, struggling to reduce my nicotine strength but determined I won't smoke a real cigarette. Lungs are great and have converted lots of my friends to e-cigs which is handy if my battery runs out when I'm out! It's my friends wedding on Saturday so that will probably be a struggle but then a clear few weeks to try and reduce the nicotine. This is now the longest I have gone without having a cigarette so onwards and upwards.

    Well, still off the cigarettes but my friend has started smoking again . Still feel that I can do this but my weight is creeping up and I am struggling to stick to my plan. Really need to get my head around this weight gain and get down to some serious exercise & low carbing! Not a good time.

    Thanks Chezz, 19 months is brilliant. If you can stop smoking I'm sure you will be able to lose the weight now, 3 stones already shows great determination.
