More Stress along the way

Posted 07-27-2011 at 12:45 AM by Phil uk

Well, what can we say? having a tough time at the minute.

I guess the good news is the place to start, 5 days, 9 hours and 54 minutes is the current time without inhaling nicotine. (as mentioned previously the phrase is used to cover smoking cigarettes and using an e-cig) so even under normal circumstances I guess I should be proud of that.

Although the smoking cessation services will tell you that stress is an excuse for smoking, and that cigarettes do not help with...

Brief but multiple updates

Posted 07-26-2011 at 12:46 AM by Phil uk

Well, today is day 4 since I quit inhaled nicotine. to be precise at this moment, it is 4 days, 10 hours and 25 minutes since any smoke or vapour passed my lips!!

I am actually quite proud of myself. If I am quiet, I still think about it but hopefully the thoughts will pass with time.

42, otherwise known as Life, The Universe and Everything

Posted 07-20-2011 at 05:00 AM by Phil uk

Well, I have never blogged before about anything.... not sure if this is the place to start, but as this entire forum seems to be filled with nice people, I guess this is a good place to start.

How far back do we go? Where do we begin? how much do we write at a time? Do I treat this as a kind of confessional? I am not sure is the answer to most of these....
