two weeks given up for me, thankfully the cravings are not too bad. yesterday was first bike ride where i noticed a significant difference in lung capacity. did have quite bad cravings in the afternoon afterwards, just got to stick with it though.
Well done bob.
I'm riding more often to help keep wait off & to keep my mind occupied
i'm using it as an excuse to eat what i want, not particularly putting weight on cos i caught some gastro disease prior to giving up, but if i do, i have ready made excuse. CHIPS AND CHOCOLATE FOR EVERYBODY.
and well done to everbody who's still there.
although personally i prefer this:
this month i'm a non-smoker. the month before i was. whereas for several months prior i wasn't. i seem to go through phases of wanting a smoke. i'll have a ciggie after lunch or during work and then at some point i'll just decide that i don't want to smoke and will just "give up".
i find i enjoy a smoke in summer after a ride with a beer or when driving long distances, so i end up smoking often during the summer.
my old man smoked from the age of 12 till he was 63. now only 20% of his lungs actually work. he has trouble walkning any distance. enough of a reason to stop.
strangley my mum still smokes, but, in her words "only silk cut lights so it doesn't count".
