In January I stopped smoking for nearly a week. It was a pretty rubbish attempt and soon after that J started travelling regularly and bringing back duty free cigarettes so I have been smoking more than I was before.
They have all run out and I have new supply of E-cig juice.
I’m not going to try and quit straight away instead I’m going to try cutting right down but still having a couple. Then eventually get it down to none.

I have my natural hair colour for the first time since I was 13. It is also REALLY short as I got J to cut all the dye out. I’m sort of okay with this but I do keep seeing photos and deciding I want ginger hair again (or pink, or blonde)
I want it to grow to shoulder length at least before I do anything with it. 2 months ago
I did it in Olu Deniz in Turkey. It was off Babadag mountain (nearly 6500ft) and it was pretty amazing. I would love to do it again. 2 months ago
I was much better during the day today but this evening is really testing me.
I listened to the Max Kirsten hypnotherapy Quit Smoking app last night to send me to sleep. I’m not sure if it helps at all but it is very relaxing so I am going to listen to it again tonight.

i never realized it was this hard! (sounds stupid but I really didn’t)
I even ordered a fuck-tonne of chocolate from Hotel Chocolat earlier – and I don’t like chocolate. 11 months ago
Going for a driving lesson in the fog whilst wanting to shout/cry/smoke 100 cigarettes is not fun. I do not recommend it. My concentration was pretty shit and I made quite a few small mistakes. I explained to my instructor before hand though.
I feel sorry for J too, I wouldn’t like to be around me right now.
1 day 7 hours 56 mins since I last had a cigarette. 11 months ago
I fell down the hill broke my phone, scraped half the flowers of my Doc Martens and bruised my leg.
Two people saw and instead of the usual ‘must stand up quickly and pretend nothing happened’ I spent a minute or two sat there trying to get my phone to work.
I love that picture :D11 months ago
I’m pretty sure this is the first time in over 14 years that I haven’t had a cigarette for 24 hours.
This is horrible. 11 months ago
It arrived this morning. I still have nearly a whole packet of cigarettes to smoke before I start using the E-cig though so I should start tomorrow :)
I spoke to J about it and he has ordered one too. I just said the house would smell nicer, his food would taste better and that I don’t want him to die.
Ha agreed to give it a try but I know it is my suggestion and so it may not work. That’s okay. There’s no pressure. It is great that he wants to give it a go though:)
(Plus his mum may just love me forever if he quits! haha) 11 months ago
Do you ever hoop outside?
My lighter hoop just goes to all the wrong places when chest hooping, it is a bit to small too which doesn’t help!
I am really loving the leg hooping, it has opened up a whole new area to hoop on/in/with.
I managed to get it from my knees to my waist 4 times today :) 11 months ago
Chest/shoulder hooping was feeling really awkward still and then I hit myself in the face and split my lip so I took a break from it. I tried leg hooping again and it worked! Been messing around with one leg hooping and walking. Now I am trying to work on bringing it up to my waist from my legs. 11 months ago
This week I have done traffic lights, zebra crossings, driving on bigger roads, smaller roads. Just a lot of variation which was really good. 11 months ago
Burning Man video’s always make me wish I was back there. 11 months ago
I am a dirty smoker. I know it is a horrible habit.
I bought an E-cig last year but lost it and started smoking normal cigarettes again. They are so expensive though £7 ($11) for a 20 pack.
I am going to buy a E-cig starter kit next week instead of my cigarettes and ban myself from buying any more. If use it for one week and don’t buy any cigarettes then it will have paid for itself. I am going to allow myself to smoke roll ups every now and then as a pack of tobacco is a lot cheaper and I hate them so a pack lasts forever.
It’s not about wanting to quit smoking it’s about wanting to save money.
I do eventually want to quit11 months ago

J just got home and was very impressed :D 11 months ago
