Well, here I am now at day 9. Things going quite well at the moment. Just went for a jog and feel good ... should help take off some of the excess weight I'll have gained from my extra eating at night. Really happy with myself that I haven't smoked. Find it quite easy during the day as I am busy at work. I do think about fags but I don't crave them.
Weekend coming tomorrow and it is going to be a little tougher. Also, I am finding it particularly difficult at night when I come home from work. After dinner I don't have much to do .... except watch TV .... and I find that difficult / not interesting. So from 9 o'clock until 11 o'clock I'm at a loose end.
I'm going to sit down tonight and write out a list of things that I want / need to get done. This should keep me busy for a few weeks and help keep my mind off smoking. I think the key thing we all need to do is look at our weak moments and try to minimize the frequency of these moments and to minimize their impact.
The other key weak moment I have is the pub ..... haven't set foot inside a pub for 2 weeks and don't intend to for at least another 2. Last thing I need is for a few pints to mess my head up and convince me that I should celebrate giving up the cigs by having a fag ... or worse, explain to me that since I've given up now I can easily have another fag without worryng about getting hooked !!!
Anyway, hope everyone keeps going. Think March 14 is no smoking day and I'll be 3 weeks off the fags. Keep going.
