I have been trying to keep myself busy so I don't think about lighting up. Up at 3.30 am, stripped the 950 down to a thousand bits, changed oil and filters, removed old tyres and messed around with other stuff. Also put new fork seals in the wr450 and then went for a few hundred K trail ride.
Tomorrow I'll do some tree lopping and gardening, then start rebuilding my boat trailer.
I think exhaustion might knock me off before the smokes will

Gentleman, this has to be an honour system. If anyone breaks down and lights up, you have to be honest and admit here in public. First time you will be forgiven. second time and maybe no one should acknowledge your posts or replies for 2 weeks. Na ,maybe not. giving up is hard enough. Usually on a ride I stop for a smoke. Now I'll just ride all day.

Being allergic to the fkn patches doesn't help Nearly two days, run out of things to do so I'm going for a ride.

Thumb Keep up the great work guys..

Great to see so many are still off the things, every day will get easier and easier and after a while the cravings will stop altogether.. Just need to get through the hard times to enjoy the good times..

If your looking at some sort of penalty system for the strayers... Can I suggest a $50 dollar donation per cigarette to the RFDS??

I thought it would be a great idea to have a glass of water whenever I had a craving when I stopped smoking.. Thought it might flush my system and purge these cravings away..


Bloody near drowned the first couple of days..

Kissing is a great way to keep your mouth busy*. If your significant other is nearby and in the mood, go for it.

here i am, gang ....
