Whatever, Monday 20 Feb will be day one unless I have to postpone a week for further education. 40 Years is a long, long time.
I have to say tracking the smokes before quitting provides me with a lot of insight. Tracked Sunday and Monday but yesterday went by in a blur with starting a new, extra typing job at home...so no tracking or reading. Tracking again today and therefore, automatically started reading progress, problems, advice and news from all of you. Will stay home this weekend and really get to know this site and will also be reading Allen Carr.
My only concern (except for cigarette cravings), is eating. I started Weight Watchers on 12 September and am consistently losing 2Kgs a month (about 4.4 lbs). Last week I reached my first goal of 10 Kgs GONE! I really don't want to jeopardise my progress - many, many Kgs to go...will take at least another 2-3 years. But after trying all the miracle wonder diets over the last 20 years, I've realised fast loss is a waste of time and a lot of money spent unnecessarily.
So I'll be snacking on lean biltong (for salty) and winegums (for sweet) ... Very low on Weight Watchers points system. See? I'm preparing. Only one ashtray left in the house and one outside. Sunday night both go into the garbage bag.
Oh by the way, biltong = beef jerky, more or less.
Which makes me wonder, am I the only Saffa in the group? Everyone seems to be American.
Lastly, all your comments are helpful and makes me fear next week less an less.
Ps - Above is a bit repetitive now, having said most of it in my replies today.
