  • Well I spend all my time putting on a 'brave face' but once I am alone I ponder on the things I wish I could still do, and that gets me down a little. I have just added the British lung foundation to my list of communities in the hope of drumming up some support to help me stop smoking so I know my days are going to be a little bit low for a while. But if I want to live I have to stop. But I am going to give it a real good go this time. Longest time without nicotine is ten weeks. So far I have managed 3 hours lol., or there abouts xxxxx

  • Just read how hard you are finding it to stop smoking, here is how I did it, I smoked for 38 years tried so many times to stop, however this time worked been off it for 8 years, here goes;

    6 weeks of psychological brainwashing

    I spent my time looking at how other would smoke near children and watch them pass children with cigs in their hands nearly burning a child. I would smell my clothes and watch people stand outside clubs and dinners looking like total addicts because that is what they are, that is what we are social outcasts. The most important thing I did was never to empty the ashtray, a few daysof that and the stink shewwwww.

    I picked a day to stop, and that day I got someone in to clean carpets, suite, curtains and wash down the paintwork. Once all that was done I made sure there was no lighters, cigs or ashtrays around and drank plenty of water. Everytime I had the urge I drank freezing cold water and reminded myself of how clean my mouth felt and how I was washing out all the toxins in my body. I visualized my lungs going from brown unhealthy looking bellows to lovely clean fresh lungs.

    It worked when nothing else did, and I refused to use anything else like tablets, chewing gum patches etc, cold turkey got rid of one addiction without adding another.

    I wish you well and remember the craving only last seconds and that there is no way that a wee long white tube will rule your life ever again

  • Thankyou so much I have saved your reply to my office suite so I can go back to it whenever I need to. I had a fag at 5am this morning after I was freaked out by yet another horrific nightmare but I have not touched one since then, 13 hours and 45 minutes now, not much I know but a start xxxxxx

  • Bless You, your positivity is inspiring, lots of gentle hugs, Here's hoping for a peaceful and kinder New Year.

  • you to Susan things can only get better sounds like a song i know xxxx Happy New Year to you and yours xxx

  • I agree that things have to turn around for you. You have had a dreadful year, but you will come through a stronger person. I love the positivety and I wish you and yours A Very Happy and heathy New Year

  • every breath you take is clean air going in, bad coming out and remember clear cool water,a running brook is a clean brook. Remember to look up and visualize all that lovely clear sky and people smiling all around you as you get closer to freedom without a cig. Mostly remember its ok to fall back a step or 2 as long as you see yourself moving forward. Go for it.
