Glad to hear from you but sorry to hear about your mother in law. How brilliant to stay off the fags. Wishing you the very best, lots of love TAD xx
Hi Pamela. Well done for reaching a year. I'll have done 3 weeks on Tuesday. Can't believe I've got this far but I finally realised that sh** happens all the time, and my smoking wasn't help with the stress like it did before I was diagnosed, it was just adding to it.
It's crap when someone close to you is ill and your poorly yourself. It's so frustrating and makes you feel totally helpless and overwhelmed. I hope things ease up a bit for you soon. x
Hello casper99 lovely to hear from you well done you for reaching the 3 week mark and your right s..t does happen I used to use a ciggy as my crutch but no more because like you say it dosent help it makes things worse xx and yes seeing my mother inlaw going through this hell is horrible and not being able to do anything about it frustrating dosent come close thankyou for your replie kind regards pam xxx
Hi Pamela67, I don't think we have 'spoke' before as I don't post that often, sorry about your mother in law but well done on the ciggie free period. I gave up 5 months ago and still have a very strong urge to light up, more so when things are getting me down/upset, luckily they don't last very long and I just keep telling myself that a ciggie won't won't change anything so why bother! Keep strong Julie
Hi julie no we haven't spoken before hope you are as well as can be so very sad to see someone you love very much go through what my mother inlaw is going through well done to you for being ciggy free for 5 months and the urges are worse when iam feeling low which as been alot lately but ive started looking at things in a different way now if I can get through this time of my life which feels like everything going wrong and still not reached for a ciggy think ive defo cracked it you to keep strong thankyou for your comment take care pam xx
