  • A weighty issue!
    Dear All, Just a side effect I'd like some feed back on if possible. During this quit and all my other attempts (there have been many) one thing I have noticed is that I lose the ability to feel "full" after eating. Normally you eat for a while and then go "arrgh I've had enough" however when I'm no...

  • Where are you from?
    Georgia, Thanks so much - feel much better to fly that flag. You're right it is cold however Melbourne in autumn is beautiful - sun's out at the moment and air is crisp and cool. I actually would not live anywhere else in autumn. However - we could discuss some house swapping perhaps around winterti...

    Dear Bob, My sympathy to you and your friend on this tragic event. But a wonderful thank you for sharing it with us. Someone wrote that it was a "reality check". That's exactly what that is. We do blow those bad feelings out of proportion don't we. It is just a minor nuisance in our lives - compared...

    Even though I've been here a little while I still haven't done this post. I wanted to raise a huge Aussie flag and I'm sure there is one somewhere however still can't work out the pictures. So for the record I'm from beautiful Melbourne, Australia where it is now Autumn - my favorite season when I'm...

  • Turning the Corner... Acceptance
    Bob, This is exactly where I am. It is spot on what I am feeling at the moment. I feel like I've got up that hill, puffing and panting along the way and then was finding it really easy. However I didn't count on this rope bridge that I now have to cross - it's seems to be fraying a little over the o...

    Congratulations on your first week of freedom. You've made a great choice! My husband gave up smoking about 10 years ago when I was still smoking, inside the house and car and everything. When I look back now I'm horrified that I continued to smoke around him and didn't try to help by going somewher...

  • Are there "social smokers?"
    Joel, I have a sister who I always classed as a "social smoker" - smoking about 5 per day, unless some big social event was on where she would smoke like a chimney like the rest of us. She has now tried to quit several times unsuccessfully. My question is this. When I stopped I have noticed wonderfu...

  • MissC Calling for Wisdom!
    Miss C, When I'm having a crappy day - and we all do - I make myself remember that I had crappy days even when I was smoking. This helps a little - 'cos life's not fair or easy - smoking doesn't change that. We are allowed to be a little "down" now and then - don't be too hard on yourself. Give your...
