    Well it's now one year since I quit smoking :happydance:

    I used to absolutely LOVE smoking... it was something I did to treat myself, to calm myself down, to give me courage when I was nervous, and I made so many new friends when I started at my new job through meeting them at "smokers' corner" lol! I know that smoking is a negative thing, but when you're a smoker, it has so many positives too!

    Then, when hubby and I decided to start TTC, it was on one condition and that was that I packed in the ciggies which I did... although at first, very reluctantly! However, I had a reason to quit this time. I always said I would never smoke whilst pregnant, and after a month of hardcore Nicorette usage and will power, I went cold turkey whilst TTC and we were lucky enough to get pregnant quite quickly.

    And now it's been 1 whole year since I smoked my last cigarette, and we have a beautiful healthy baby boy which has made it all worth while.

    So ciggies... we had a very long, lovely, albeit destructive relationship together, and whilst you helped me through a lot of bad times and I will always think of you, we can never be together again my addictive smelly friend. I am no richer as so many people said I would be, but my lungs probably look better and I may now see a slight reduction in my life insurance payments (although i'm not banking on it)

    Goodbye ciggies, and hello motherhood!:happydance:
