Hi Guys- Just to let you know that I am still smoke-free -   It is now three weeks and two days.  - so soon will be a month!!  I can't believe that - never ever thought it would happen.     Diabetes-wise - still plugging in there.   Getting tons of support from diabetic clinic - cant speak highly enough of them.   I asked my nurse the other day if she would consider me to be "under control" now as most of my readings are under 7.0.   I was a tad disappointed when she replied that I cannot be considered under control until I stop throwing those occasional readings over 7.0.   Still I guess that is just another goal - hopefully to be achieved in the not too distant future.......  Havent been able to exercise for about a week as i "threw" my back - now that it is better - am having a little trouble getting re-motivated.   But know I have to.   Hope everyone here is doing well - Miss you guys - but until I have this smoking thingy well under control - feel I should "hang out" over there. yeah

So happy to hear you are doing well with your smoking cessation! I remember when I was at the point you are at... My hubby was still smoking 2 packs a day (but not in the house). He has a full beard and mustache and when he used to walk in the door I used to kiss him and want to lick his lips! Still had the craving!

Not too long after that the smell of the smoke on him made me nauseated, like when I was pregnant. Now I can't stand the smell of smoke at all. Weird how we go thru these changes...

Anyway, you go girl!

Good to hear from you joules. Glad you are doing well on your quitting.

Go Joules!!! Glad to hear you're doing so well and that your back is feeling better! Ugh. It's hard enough to keep in the "swing" of things but an injury can really keep you out of it for a bit. I'm glad you're back in one piece!!

Way 2 go! What an accomplishment!  Don't feel bummed by the 'under control' comment- If your A1c coems back and it's nice and low- they'll change their tune- you can be sure. The most important thing is- do you feel under control? and are you mostly consistent with the good readings? Then enjoy it and embrace it- and you'll settle down soon enough.
