No Smoking Day

Feeling Good....now

Hi all

Had a really good weekend but not such a good evening today - thought about it a lot - I suppose this is probably the point where I would have managed to convince myself it wasn't worth it before - but this time I have hung in there and the feelings have totally gone again! I know this time is different and if I can just get through the odd time like this I will be fine and dandy! - Having a bit of trouble sleeping though even though I've started removing the patch..

Hi to everyone old and new (well I don't mean old as in grey haired and wrinkly you understand) and all those on line looking in....

Love Loopy XX

Heya Loopy x x

Well done for riding it out xx

Sleep, try nytol, and a warm bath before bed x I often have trouble sleeping as it's the first time in the day I can stop and think about the little niggley things like 'did i pay the gas bill?', 'must get my sister a bday pressie' (nothing left over from your drunken online shop i suppose? :D ) and other such trivial stuff!

Any small change will make my sleeping bad for a while, hopefully it will sort out soon x x

Hi Buffy

No sorry nothing left...ooh I might have a miniature statue of Blackpool Tower hand crafted from elephant dung somewhere.....:D Or I did have a chocolate fire guard ..now what did I do with that??

Actually someone else mentioned Nytol, might have to give it a go.

Hope you're feeling good!

Good nights sleep? whats that !! I swear I havent had a good nights sleep since I quit. I have removed the patches as I was told but Im still lying awake at 3am I might just try Nytol does it taste as good as red wine? :D I might start writing down my dreams as well, I think I could do a good movie with what goes on in my dreams. Im moaning but all this is better that the wheezing and coughing which was happening before I quit, that has stopped and Im so happy I was brave enough to give it a go. Good luck to all Sue xx

Hi Sue

I stopped wearing the patch at night cos of the dreams but I'm still not sleeping very deeply and having some of the wierdest dreams - perhaps we could all write them down and publish it as a best selling horror :D

Haven't bought any Nytol yet - still using the well known sleep formula - Cider! Although from a health point of view I believe red wine is better for you!!

Cheers

You are so right - I thought it was only me with the fish like tendencies! I'm two thirds of the way through a bottle already - at this rate I'll be in bed by 9.45! :D

See you on the AA forum later!!!!!!!

Little sue - totally agree with you on the drink thing. I'm sure Red wine bottles don't hold as much these days!lol

P.S I find drinking white wine sometimes means it doesn't count towards my weekly units too :D

I love my own philosophies :rolleyes:

I read a recent survey that said 99% of all bottles of red wine drunk in the U.K. had fifty percent of their contents stolen by goblins whilst the owner of said bottle had nipped to the loo!!

Ha ha I knew it!

Little buggers! somewhere is a crowd of p*****d goblins raving it up having taken my wine! :mad:

Man, do I know! lollol

it's a god send, here, for sure!

Am sure this has been my most vital quit tool!

What day are you at now? it seems like you've been the mainstay of the forum for ever - you know, you were here when I started and I was so wound up in my own little quit I didn't really pick up where you were at..sincere apologies...

hehe no worries x x I am 12 weeks today :D

Brilliant!!!!! Have you ever got that far before - The most I ever did was seven weeks - although I think we've both got a different quit this time!! I can smell success!

Think I ought to get off to bed now to see if my dreams hold any particularly small shoes - hey perhaps I'm cinderella just waiting for my prince.......

love Loopy
