Made it to 3 weeks

Well I made it to day 21,

At times I thought I would never do it but with your help I am here.

I think I might dig out my allan carr book and have a read coz I feel that if I do give in it will be through the habit side rather than the craving side of things. I feel it is my brain that needs retraining not to feel that sense of loss that we get, even though it is my brain that tells me I am stupid even thinking that I want a fag.

Anyway, thanks for all your help so far and here's to the next 21 days!

    Well Done Befly x x x

    You've done brilliantly!! ~Buffy x x

  • Well done Befly, i'm right behind you!!! (20 days)

    The main thing that has stuck with me from Allan Carr is that there is no such thing as one cigarette. Its so true. I've quit before for 5months, then 'JUST' had one on a night out, and within a few weeks i was back up to 20 a day again.

    Now if the thought of a cig comes into my head, i have the following thoughts

    1) It WILL taste really BAD!!

    2) It will not make me feel better or satisfied in ANY way.

    3) You can't just have one, you buy a packet, if you have one now, you will have another later or tomorrow or next week. ITS A TRAP!!!!

    Its helping me so far - need to keep strong.

    Well done again!!:D :D

  • Thanks for that chocobunny,

    I do keep telling myself all that and yesterday I did actually pinch a ciggy out of my daughters box coz I wanted one soooo bad and took it out in the car with me. Don't do it I hear you cry, well I didn't coz I did keep telling myself that I would light it up and have a puff and I know it will taste like an ashtray smells, so I can do it. It just gets on your nerves to have to constantly keep thinking about not smoking and telling yourself that you won't like it. I hope that this horrible feeling will get less and less as time goes on, I suppose it will.

    I had better go out to my car and throw it away while I feel strong.

  • Well done befly,

    You have done extremely well, be very proud of yourself. Read your book again it will remind you what an illusion smoking is.

    Stay strong and you will succeed

  • hey Befly, what a hero you are! I sooo know what you mean about wanting that desire/need to go away. You resisted and I think that's brilliant, not sure I could have done that... Hope you're having a celebration this evening :D :D



    Oh Befly what an amazing person you are. I think you're so fantastic, and such a lovely lovely person. To get as far as you have is brilliant.

    Well done on making such a milestone - three weeks down is fantastic - here's to the next three.
