I feel I can safely post now ....

And Beth- dont hate me, but I am calling myself a .............. yesssss ................... wait for it .............. its pretty shocking............ in fact............ Its one of the strangest things ever.........................ok............. get ready for it...................






a NON SMOKER.

oh dear!! call the ambulance for those that have keeled over in shock!

yes folks, I am a non smoker. I intend to stay this way too. I have been smoking less since Sunday 10th August. Just cos I felt like it, I was using patches and in conjunction with Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking book.
I now dont WANT to smoke, dont FEEL like smoking and Im doing fine, I don't "miss" doing something so silly every hour, or half hour or whenever I get in the car, I am pretty comfortable not WANTING to smoke - I'm aware that every other time I have attempted to "give up" I felt like I was denying myself something good, I'm Finally at the stage where I can freely admit, I'm not sacrificing anything, I'm not denying myself pleasure, Im giving myself something pretty precious.
So I'm trying my best to keep busy, do what I like doing with no major "life changes" as is usually suggested - honestly, I dont want to CHANGE my life, I just want to stop smoking. And for those that wish to do the same, I absolutely recommend Allen Carr's book and as trite as it sounds, I think it works!! its a fantastic tool and I would especially like to hear from any non-smokers that read it, would be quite satisfying I think to hear their opinon too!

So thats The main reason I have been quiet on the blog, that and the fact I have nothing better to report right now, I'm working on some things, did a lo last night but havent figured out how to use the flash new Photoshop on my flash new pc to stitch it, when I tried at midnight last night I got completely confused and gave up. - IM A QUITTER THIS WEEK !!!!!!!!!!!

o.k. supergirl-just hit the place order button on Amazon. Shithead goes back to work a week from Tuesday and of course I have to watch it first and I don't want to do it while he's home. Might give him ideas and since I'm royally pissed at him, it wouldn't do him no good. So you have to stay quitted for at least 3 more weeks to get your full frontal Bones!
