    Still got those moments i really really craving to smoke especialy after diner but staying strong :)
    Don't tell me about it! I quit smoking a while ago, and after dinner was the worst time for me. I did it anyway, be patient and stay strong :)

    Way to go! Are you going to meetings or seeing a counselor? I can say they both really help, although I could never really get into the AA format, it was still helpful for awhile after I quit using drugs.
    I also found that I liked the alanon meetings better, I seemed to relate to the other people better.
    Keep up the good work. One day at a time!

    So after smoking for 17 years and been a alcoholic for 5 years today i havent touched both for a week, i know i know not very long but it's a step in the good direction :)

    Stopped both cold turkey so maybe it could be a motivation to someone out there :happy: Now i need to shred 66lb :noway:

    Also on my 5th day of insanity and p90x so i hope that i can stick with it because as the same reason i post this, don't have any friends or family nearby and the ones that are have also a really really bad lifestyle so they can't really relate.

    If you were standing in front of me I'd hugg you!!
    Great job!

    Well done you!

    I have managed to stop living on junk but I am still a smoker. 20-30 per day, I know I need to give them up but I'm not ready to do it yet because I know doing it all at once won't work for me. Having said that, the smoking is making exercise more difficult because I get out of breath and my chest starts to hurt so I am hoping that exercising more will make the smoking unbearable so that I give up naturally? Does that make sense? x
  • Congrats! You are stronger than you think.

    Congratuations, that's amazing. I've smoked on and off for 14 years. Quitting twice when pregnant with both boys and for periods afterwards, but somehow it always sneaks back up. I struggle with alcohol too, though I don't consider myself an alcoholic. Stay strong!

    Congratulations on starting your journey to a healthier you! As a former smoker, I know it is a hard thing to quit. "Never quit quitting" was my motto...been smokefree for 16 years. You can do it.

    Thanks again for all the nice comments.

    Today i dont feel so great, i get irritated with the smallest things and feel agressive, hope that will be gone soon because i am not like that.
