No wheeze is she or isn't she?

Came home from having lunch out with my sister and great niece who is home from Afghanistan for a little R&R(she works for the N.A.A.F.I ) and thought that I would just log on and see how no-wheeze is doing with her fight with the killer weed.After trying right up to midnight I finally gave up and went to bed. So Sandra please tell us that you didn't start smoking again in frustration at not being able to get on the site. Gail

  • Reporting for Duty .... Day 9.... still no nicotine ..... Hooray. Honestly, it's not because I'd slipped, I stopped blogging, but the site was rather temperamental yesterday, and I'm trying to avoid stressful situations. Also, since I've cleared one full week, I'd rather not bore people with my daily challenges and achievements .... Thinking positive here, and seeing only achievements :) I'll keep you up to date with a weekly blog instead :)

    But, thank you so much for thinking about me Gail :) It is that kind of support that keeps me motivated and on track :)

  • You are a star Sandra - well done ! How many boxes of maltesers................ lol :)

  • Thank you Scrobbitty, 128 boxes left.... oops?

  • Well done Sandra. Now, if you can just give up the men and the booze you will be quids in.

    Love from Bobby xxx

  • What???? deprive myself of all enjoyment???? What would be the point in living????

  • Congratulations.Your reports certainly don't bore me .I will give you all my support as it is so important for your future health to give up smoking . Gail

  • I'm truly touched by your concern, Gail. But, I think the first week was the hardest, and I got through it with determination and all the support :)

    Buoyed by my achievements so far, I'm not trying to test the boundaries too much, and avoiding people and places who I know will stress my limits, if not my patience.... I'm hoping Will Power will sustain me for a while yet. :)

  • Well done nowheeze, you wont bore us we are all in this together. Over three months for me now, and still think of smoking when upset or fed up. Not an easy road to travel but hope we all get there eventually. xx

  • Hi Nixy. Kudos to you for 3 moths +. I'm still quite novice at this - did it before with a nicotine crutch, but this cold turkey is proving easier than I thought. But don't get me wrong, I'm not dropping my guard. I know stress, especially emotional stress is one of my triggers, so I'm avoiding and ignoring all stressful people who attempt to enter my life.... :) Let's keep up this good work of giving up the white sticky things :)

  • *months oops.... not moths....

  • Well done to you too Nixy .It is 20 months since I stopped and I really fancied one yesterday until my Greatniece went out to my garden to have one then it really put me off again she said that she wants to stop but because there is nothing else to do in Afghanistan she is smoking 40 a day .Also they are very cheap to buy out there. I gave her the patches that I had but didn't use when I stopped but I don't hold out much hope.

  • Well done Sandra. You are doing really great and I'm sure you can crack it once and for all :D

  • Thanks Lynne, I really do hope I've cracked it this time. All us Ex-Smokers (and I'm saying that proudly) have to find our own route out of this nicotine addiction. Mr Will Power is a super new friend :)

  • Since I hit the one year mark, if people ask I now say I don't smoke. I used to say I was an ex smoker too, and that's fine, but it's great to say 'I don't smoke'. I never thought I would be able to do that.

  • That'll be May 2014 when I'll class myself as a non smoker :) Thanks for giving me that target date :)

  • Well I dont call myself ex smoker I am a non smoker. have been since the day I gave up (again lol) I really admire people that can do it cold turkey, how they manage it I will never know, something onwards and upwards peeps xxto do with me having a crutch to lean on I suppose. Have used patches and champix lots of times in the past, champix at the mo. Worried what will happen when I finish the champix though. Still think about the rotten fags, but things are getting better.Weneed to be on our guard at all times. I was painting the bathroom and was so fed up all I could think of was you know what....Luckily I was painting in old pyjamas and looked a mess and had I looked half decent I may well have gone to the shop, yes it was that bad. Over it now so onwards and upwards peeps xx

  • Oops dunno wot happened there folks, little gremlin I think.

  • What did Bobby say??????????????? give up the men and booze !!!! Men maybe... BOOZE never !!!!!!!!!

  • Nowheeze, you are an ex-smoker! We are all so proud of you. :-) Alison
