Day 31

Hi all

Last night i had a crave for a cig, came from nowhere:confused: .

It lasted for about 30 mins.I really fancied having a cig.I didnt give in though.

I havn`t thought about cigs for ages ( about 7 days ) so i dont know where that came from. I hope that doesn`t happen very often.It just goes to show it can hit you in the face at anytime.

Going to cessation lady today. She said about dropping to 14mg patch but i think i might stay on 21mg for another week and see how things go.

Hope everyone is well and keeping up with their quits.

  • Well done Barb on not giving in to the craving.

    It creeps up on all of us! I can go days without thinking about it and then WHALLOP! out of nowhere a severe craving. Just keep riding it out.

    Off to see my cessation nurse aswell today. Checking my Carbon Monoxide reading today and will mention about maybe changing to a 16 hour patch as I keep taking off the 24hr patch at night because of the crazy dreams. Not as if I need the nicotine while i'm asleep.

    Keep up the good work!:D


  • Hi Barney


    I use the 24hr patch and also remove it at night.

    When i first had my carbon monoxide measured it was 19. Since then, every week its been 2.Thats a good boost to see that.

    Well done to you on day 10 isnt it ?.:cool:

    We all need a pat on the back for what we have achieved.:D

    Keep going.

  • Barney---Just read your signature. You ARE on day 10.

  • Well Done Barb 1Month today :eek:

    As Linda said before, you need a big reward for that! be sure to treat yourself!! we will be asking you questions later to make sure! :D

    And Barney! double figures!! i think your due a splurge too!!

    I reckon roughly around day 3 week 3 and month 3 i got a wallop! it feels a bit panicky to me 'cos i feel like oh my god this shouldn't happen still!!

    But it does pass and isn't anywhere as near as intent as in the beginning when i think about it! and is so infrequent! I wasn't aware of when the feeling passes as it kind of slipped away which makes me realise it couldn't been as bad as thought! it's just that wee panic feeling :D

    Stay strong x x x well done to yous both x x ~Buffy x x

  • Got my patches. 14mg ones. Weman said i should be all right on them , i have chewing gum aswell.Told her about my big crave yesterday and she put it down to withdrawal symptoms from giving pepsi and coke up. I stopped drinking coke about 4 days ago.

    Carbon monoxide level was 0. wwwaaaaaahhhhhhooooooooooooooooooo.

    How did you do Barney?.

    Barb x

  • wow 0!!!!

    Way to go lol! you must live in a good green area to get that low! if she says going down is good then sure she's right x x you got your gum too as back up :D well done

    ~ Taking a look at BB8 Ch4 forum in a mo, i did join up last time so don't need to register again hehe :D i heard that BB told bri that pooh is a fake! Can't imagine him keeping a secret! lol ~

  • Hello Barb,

    Was only in with the nurse for 10mins. She said I may aswell stay on the 24hr 21mg patch and just take it off at night like I've been doing. My Carbon Monoxide level was 2 which I expected. Well done on the 0 reading on yours Barb.


  • Well done Barney

    Mine was 2 for a few weeks. Woman i see at Tesco`s said that just by walking through their carpark can put your carbon monoxide level up by 2-3 with the car fumes:eek:

    Starting my 14mg 2morrow.

    Buffy---Saw them tell Brian about poo on BBLB. It was hilarious.I think they are telling HMs tonight about poo. I thought it was a secret until Friday.My name on BBforum is Bj2005.

  • I live in central London and I was told it won't go below 2.

    I got 3 at best. anything in that green area is excellent x x orange and red is :rolleyes: yes dear of course you quit :p i can't remember the exact figures now, i had cessation january 2006! lol but i was 2 in red i think it was 25? when i first attended, then got down to 3 which he was chuffed with.

    I was told about the streets main roads etc lol traffic fumes count for some but when you see the difference it puts shame to those who argue smokings cool cos the car fumes are just as likely to kill :rolleyes: think i used that one once, when i was like 16! :p

    ~ I reckon they will tell each HM one by one to keep hush, lol tis panning out to be funny, I am BuffyC73 not posted yet though hehehe just looking! ~

  • Barb I was exactly the same last week. Had one day where I would have killed for a cigarette. I dreamt about cigarettes the night before (Jerry from Big Brother was forcing me to smoke one cig after another - I hadn't eaten cheese before I went to bed!), I got up the next morning and all i could think about was smoking and it lasted the whole day. When i packed in smoking I also went on a diet - thought I'd get all the pain over and done with at once - so that day when I craved a cigarette I treated myself to lots of lovely things to eat (maltesers, cheesecake, beef and chicken pani the list goes on) then I went on a long cycle ride to take my mind off the guitl from eating so much and off cigarettes. It worked as haven't wanted a cig since and the best thing is, if the cravings happen again I know what I will do to handle it. I've quit for over 30 days now so don't know why it hit me so suddenly but it did and I handled it - lesson learnt!

    Quick questions - how do u change your member status to junior, senior etc?

  • Never thought I'd say it Barb but I'm enjoying getting old!

    Well done to you on ur stopping smoking - 20 a day for over 30 years a hard habit to break but not an unbreakable habit thank goodness.

    You know what I have found wonderful recently? Going to the hospital and being truthful on the admission form! I previously said I smoked about 10 a day - lie, more like 25/30 a day however this time ticking the box 'non-smoker' was the most amazing feeling. Silly things like that make the initial pain so worthwhile. :) I LOVE BEING A NON SMOKER!!!!



  • Hi Chantelle

    Thats good that you say a non-smoker. I still say i`m a smoker giving up.

    By the way, you have a brilliant name. My daughter Kyra who`s having the baby , her middle name is chantelle.
