So I want to quit smoking I’ve been trying forever and day.. and I can’t do it. I’ve tried stop smoking products, and weirdly I am allergic to nicotine so each and everyone gives me an allergic reaction anything to do with chewing gum, sprays or lozenges closes my throat up, patches give me an awful burning rash. I tried to cut down slowly, but then when times get hard I reach for just an extra one.. and then another one and another, and bang I’m back to square one. So I guess my only option is to go cold turkey, but I’m scared to, I know what an utter $%£$% I can become when I do that, I climb the walls and go completely crazy so yes I’m standing up and saying I AM SCARED to quit smoking, all sorts of things go around my head when I think about it, I stopped cutting because I would grab a smoke when I felt the urge, so if I stop smoking will I go back to cutting.. But I know I’m slowly killing myself by smoking, and gosh the smell I hate it! I can’t stand it or the taste, I don’t enjoy smoking one single bit, but I’m addicted, I need the nicotine.
So I am asking you all do you have any tips? Have you quit smoking? How did you do?

Starting Weight: To be honest I haven’t looked… Got scared after I saw the Wii Fit tell me I had put on over a stone since I had last been on it.
Target Weight: 10 stone
Amount Lost: 4lb (total)
Amount to Lose: –
Dress Size: 16
Target Dress Size: 12/14
Why I want to lose weight:
I want to feel healthy, be able to feel like hey if I have to run for the bus I can do it no problem! I also want to look in the mirror and not straight away be drawn to looking at my stomach and thinking gosh how BIG! I want to just feel happy with the person I see in the mirror again. And know that I am not doing myself harm by being over weight.
Changes To My Fitness Plan:
Slow and steady… Will hopefully win the race one day.
How I Feel This Week Went:
I’ve felt better in myself knowing that my legs can be sorted, and it is ok to rely on a crutch till such time they are better, and actually it will help with my weight coming of the meds as well (hopefully) as they have always made me put on a lot, its strange no matter what I eat on them I find it very hard to put on or lose weight, they seem to bloat me to a certain size and then I stay there, mind you nothing goes to plan so coming off them might not help me lose anything either lol.
Tips I Would Like To Share:
Do everything at your own pace!
So I’m sat here wondering how do I get back into Blogging, when I started it was easy I got in a swing and just blogged away.. but after not being able to blog properly for a couple of weeks, my swing seems to have gone. I think the list of things I want to to blog about has got to long and I can’t decide which one to do first. So many I should do a quick run down and put it all into one.. but in doing that would I miss out important things I would really want to say? Guess I’ll have to take a few days and think it over. So for now I’m going to talk about something that’s been playing on my mind for a couple of days or more.
I’m not a parent so many be a parent could answer this for me, do parents know what there kids are getting up to on the Internet? Maybe kids isn’t the right word maybe I should use Teenagers, early teens 13 onwards? I help out on a game that’s web based, and in the last year or so I’ve seen an influx of young teens coming on and well some of the things they do are really quite sexually explicit.. the amount I’ve had to talk to / warn or even ban is getting silly. Is it silly to assume that parents can keep tabs on what there kids do on the internet these days or is it just a matter of it just can’t be done? Or is just a small majority of parents just don’t care?
Maybe with the things I’ve been through it effects me more than it would someone else, but it does honestly scare me! Some of them are interacting with people twice there age or more in well just unhealthy ways.
Is web safety taught to kids at school? Maybe if it isn’t it should be. I know I could definatly have done with knowing more about it, hearing peoples personal experances of when the internet ‘goes bad’. A lot of us seem to forget that ANYONE can see anything we put on here, and feel safe because, your just on the other side of the computer screen it’s not real life. But for most of us somewhere theres enough information avaible for someone to track us down very easily. Even our IP address can give the ‘area’ we are in quickly and easily in a matter of seconds if the person knows how to do it.
Well I guess thats just one issue thats been playing on my mind the past couple of weeks, has anyone else come across something like this?
