out of the blue

Hi there everyone,

Just realised ive been posting and havent introduced myself properly - how rude! Im just at the end of first week after quit (using champix) thought i was doing soooo well - until today! Had a few drinks with mates last night but STUPIDLY (realise that now :o) allowed the smokers to smoke in the garden room. Not too much of a problem until this morning when i went to clean up and found untouched cig just lying there in ashtray. :( Got a massive craving but luckily threw it straight in the bin with the dock ends! However rest of the day its been on my mind and im ashamed to say this but was actually considering picking it out of the bin to smoke!!! How sad is that?!! In the end i had to throw leftover dinner on top to avoid temptation - im so ashamed. :o Just goes to show you have to be on your guard and not get too complacent (sp?) about this quitting business!

p.s. this site is brill! Great advice off everyone - really helps :)

thanks, Mel.

  • Bloody temptation eh!:rolleyes:

    When up finished up at work on Friday, I was having a quick tidy up for the weekend staff. Too my horror!:eek: My young assistant had left a roll up on the counter (Probably for on his way home). I wasn't tempted, Just really annoyed:mad: that he had left this temptation sitting there. Straight away, I ripped it up and threw it in the bin just incase any temptation surfaced.

    Best thing to do I reckon! Destroy it so its unsmokable before it destroys me!

    BTW he had already left when I found it! I didn't rip it up in front of him.

    I'm not that kind of reformed smoker! hehehe:D

  • Good advice!

    Will deffo rip up any more i come across so i dont cause myself any more trauma! :D

  • Wowzers, I have to say barney I dont think I could take that approach at my work as even if the they had left for home they would prob still remember for monday and Id get my head kicked in! lol :D

    Good on you though for beating temptation to a bloody pulp! ;)

  • Well done on your first week Mel.

    I know what it's like when friend leave cigarettes lying around! I've taken fags out of the bin before!

    Glad you are feeling better. Hopefully each day will get better and better - It's great being a non smoker!
