         I am at one week without cigarettes.  Things are going alright although I have some issues dealing with the free time left from not smoking.  I need to keep busy.  This weekend is hard.  This is a life a change and I need to be strong and not be scared of taking this healthy step.  I feel so much better when I don't smoke, so I will try to remember this.

    Congratulations on one week smoke free Franny!  The free time can be hard, it's a nemesis.  Maybe go and check out the Distractions Forum and you'll find more things to try?  I had a hard time last weekend but then this weekend I didn't.  It's so weird?  And it will pass for good.  Hang in there, you're doing great.
    Celebrate and reward yourself for one week smoke free today, Franny!

    Good morning Franny,

    Congratulations on your first week smoke free.  I found that the first week was the most difficult.  It does get better after that.  You can find yourself a new hobby or visit a hobby house.
    Keep up the good work!

    Hello franny,

    Congratulations on your one week!  A lifestyle change is a big adjustment, extra time on hands now for sure.  What a great time to think outside the box for things to do?  Such an opportunity to be creative with new hobbies and interests!  Ocean's suggestion to check out distraction forum is helpful- always amazes me at how resourceful our members are with distractions.  

    Here is to another successful week for you!

    Marianne
