I did it. I can’t believe I got through a whole year without smoking!!
It’s been incredibly difficult at times and on a few drunken occasions I have been almost on the verge of buying a packet but thanks to my other half I manage to resist the urge!!
I don’t get cravings very often any more but occasionally they come back, they’re much easier to cope with nowadays.
Unfortunately I didn’t continue putting the money I would have spent on cigs to one side. I bought myself a few treats in the early days and then it just became part of the household budget.
So almost two grand!!! I think I’d be putting it towards a holiday if I had saved it. We are really ready for a holiday. I’m desperate to get the kids splashing about in the sea and playing in the sand.
I think we are going to go away to the canaries for a week in October half term, just have to wait for J to start his new job to make sure he can get the time off then.
Really looking forward to him starting his new job; he’ll be much closer to home, no three hours on the road everyday, more holidays and more money so much more family time which is really what we all need!!!
Only good things go into my body nowadays after starting the Paleo diet! Which I am still loving; lots more info on that over the coming weeks 🙂
