HI John! Well I am a Xbox 1 gamer for the most part. Have many friends spread across the world and the States. Yes indeed it is amazing how quickly our bodies begin to snap back once we put the smokes down. Of course the key here is to stay smoke free, so never let that demon fool you into thinking you can have just one. I know from experience that doesn't work. Keep up the good fight, your doing great!

Hi Pappy
 
I game most days I like FPS, Tank Games and Space Fighter Games to name a few and Gaming is a lot better smoke free 
 
Today I had a surprise, I changed our bed because my Wife asked as she was going out, (bottom sheet, pillow cases and duvet cover) before my quit doing this was hard work made me hot and out of breath but today I had it done in half the time and found it quite easy !. There are so many benefits to stopping smoking and my quit journey is one of the best things I have ever undertaken

Good morning John. Nice to have a break away from work once in a while. I love to game as well and isn't it great not to have to constantly put things on hold to have another smoke. I know the guys I play with put up with my nasty habit, but I am sure they are glad we can now just play things straight through. LOL, Life is good without smoking.

Good morning
 
Just go home from work and now I have two days off so I'm going to shopping with the Wife and Gaming, guess which is more fun  ... I don't mind shopping and I have more money now I don't have to buy Tobacco also I wont need to have Cigarette breaks when Gaming. Feeling good today and enjoying my new life without dragging a load of chemicals in to my lungs every hour or so, my quit journey gets better each day 
 
Hope you all have a happy smoke free day
 
John

Hi Tim
 
Yes Stephanie my wife does smoke but only outside, I am explaining the benefits of my quit journey but its her choice, I hope in time she may also quit.
 
Today just got up and its rare for me but I did have a couple of hours sleep at night so this morning I'm going to cook breakfast for us, Max has just gone out after he had some fuss and I will give him his breakfast when he comes in  
 
 Calm and relaxed today, possibly very stressed out tomorrow, you just never know. I have my guard up Tim but feeling great today and enjoying a Coffee right now.
 
Wishing you a happy smoke free day
 
John

Hi John,
 Boy it sure sounds like you are doing great on your quit journey. A positive attitude goes a long way.  Does your wife smoke? I'll bet Max is LOVING you not stinking of cigarettes anymore!  Be sure and keep your guard up though. Calm and relaxed today, possibly very stressed out tomorrow, you just never know.  "life just gets better and better on my quit journey " Yes it does. Enjoy your FREEDOM John!
Stay strong.

Hi StellaBlue
 
Thank you, I was wondering if other members also felt calmer, Today has been very nice and calm as I was asleep most of it  but I'm up now and feeling relaxed and happy, my Wife is off to bed soon so I'm going to watch some TV with Max then do some gaming later, life just gets better and better on my quit journey  
 
Have a happy smoke free day

"from starting my quit I feel a lot calmer" - yes yes YES!  Isn't that an amazingly pleasant surprise?  Leading up to my quit, I thought there was simply never going to be a way to soothe my anxieties and irritations ever again.  Little did I know, that by quitting smoking I was actually going to PREVENT a ton of anxieties and irritations from ever coming up in the first place.  I am a much less anxious person since quitting smoking, now that my blood pressure isn't all over the place from the nicotine intake/withdrawal process and I'm no longer stressed out about quitting smoking or figuring out when I can smoke and hide it... Enjoy the serenity, it just gets better from here.

Hi John, keep up the great work. Sounds like you are doing well. Stay focused and don't let that nico devil trick you into thinking you can have just one. I have now really begun to notice how much my sense of smell is returning and I am really looking forward to this fall so that I can enjoy all the wonderful smells of that season.as it has been a long time since I have. As of now I am enjoying smelling all of those barbecues going that I was missing before and it's making me hungry. LOL Have a wonderful smoke free day!

Hi John,
 Feels rather good not huffing and puffing doesn't it!  And just think, you've only been a quitter for 8 days. It's going to get much better for you down the road if you keep your quit going. You have a great day too!
Stay strong.
