Hello everyone. I had a good day today I found a computer for $150 off and it is on sale until my birthday. I was smoking 30 smokes a day but today I cut back to 25 smokes. Will try to keep cutting down before my birthday. Hope you all had a good day and wish you the best for tomorrow.

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is doing alright. I am using my roommates computer until I get my new one next week. When my phone got stolen I had it put out of service right away and I did not have important items on it but did lose all of my contacts. Taking a half day off on my birthday Thursday to get my new computer and to go shopping with my sister Debbie. Hope everyone has a wonderful day today and a awesome weekend.

I treated myself 2 days early, I went to my favorite thrift store that has fantastic clothes and got navy slacks, a navy and white striped long sleeved dress shirt, navy flat shoes and a homemade knit hat :) $21 :)

so happy to be at 6 months and two days.  I just lost my brother in November...his birthday was Dec. 13..love and miss my brother but I did not give in to smoking cigarettes in my stress or sorrow.  I am really happy with my situation health wise, I feel better head to toe. I would like to encourage fellow quitters to keep on quitting each day...it took a while to get over a few humps; deep breathing, spitz, walking, stretching..chores all helped me get past the cravings.  I am thankful for quit.ca because you people were all there when I started and you are still here when I need to pass time...type something...it helps to keep hands busy..i started beading and that takes a lot away from the power of the craving!!! peace and love people!!

I am officially one month and 2 days free of smoking. I’m proud of myself but starting to lose my motivation because I’m not feeling the positive effects that people keep saying are supposed to happen. I’m still feeling tired and run down and like I am giving everything I have to not smoke again and it’s not letting up. I know I don’t want to give up but I also don’t know how much longer I can go on feeling like i do before I give in again .

Yes sorry forgot to mention talk to your doctors first and your pharmacist, I spoke to my doctor and my pharmacist at shoppers drug mart, that’s where I bought them and they both agree it’s ok to take, it’s not a drug, it’s sold off the shelf without a prescription, but yea I agree Lucille talk with your doctor or pharmacist, again it’s not a drug, I wouldn’t come on here and tell people to take drugs, magnesium is a mineral not a drug, I’m sorry if I offended anyone, please talk your pharmacist or doctor first.
