Feeling unmotivated? Disheartened?

Well, no surprise. Is it just me or did anyone else come up with the ridiculous assumption that the smoking cessation nurses were actually supposed to encourage and support you?

I told my nurse that I'd gone a week without cigarettes (bearing in mind i've been trying to quit since October 2006 and never making it past 3 days), well this is what she had to say;

"so? it's only a week" how sarcastic. However, its over my head, i ignored it because i was so tempted to pick up a cigarette.

well i still know you guys value my efforts! :D

    Oh Ethan hunny don't be disheartened that daft nurse has probably never smoked in her life!!!:mad:

    I think you are at the same place in your quit as i am in mine, day 8, and I'll tell you I'm damn proud of myself and so should you be!! :D

    I too never previously got past day 3 before giving in but this time its my quit and i'm not giving again because after "just a week" I no longer smell like an ashtray , i can breath more easily and have more energy and I've saved over fifty pounds which I'll be able to spend on something I actually do like rather than being a slave to cigarettes.

    So never mind the nurse its not your fault shes having a bad day ..... proud of you for not giving in and having a cig and if it helps just tell yourself you'll succeed with this quit just to spite her for being so mean :)

  • I feel quite pissed because i keep on raving about the fantastic cessation peeps and today i have heard 2 negatives :mad:

    I hope that these are a minority and they get bloody sacked! they actually get paid more for their services and get time off on lovely little courses etc flipping cheeky those 2 mares!!

    I had a great stop smoking service cessation pharmacist in the maida vale part of London and i couldn't fault the service x x

    'Only a week?' Shove a weeks worth up her a*** and see how little she thinks it is then! :p

  • Fantastic nurse eh? NOT! Keep ur head up - this is just another challenge for you. I'm sure in a few days you will have forgotton about it. Most important thing is that during a difficult time YOU DID NOT pick up a cig. Well done! X

  • hiya

    that sounds like the attitude of a smoker that either does not want to give up themselves or cant give up. bit of jealousy going on there i reckon!

    a lot of these so called proffessionals dont practice what they preach.

    good on you for not letting her get to you!
