What a wonderful morning (well it is now that I've fought my way out of the house and into my office... Sanctuary...).
Any how I have been thinking about this no smoking campaign and I think this is going to be a tough one for me this time. Let me explain.
I have gone cold turkey and I am coming up to 1.5 days with out a single craving. Some of you might think this is a good thing, and it probably is, however I am concerned that I will be less prepared for it when it does happen.
Now I got out of bed this morning and I was reasonably happy, my wife had already been up for about 30 minutes and I just asked her to pop down the local store and get me some tobacco and papers. And the thing is I wasn't actaully gagging for a smoke, I just thought bugger it I'll smoke today ( I know, very, very, very bad attitude and total lack of commitment ). Any how, I walked into the bath room and brushed my teeth and decided to have a hair cut before jumping into the shower. Now under normal circumstances I would have started smoking straight after my hair cut (Not much hair comes off any more :eek: )...
Me and the wife on holiday...
To cut a long story short (Did everyone get the pun... ) Well after my hair cut I just said to my wife, "don't bother going to the shops for the smokes", and that was that.
Albeit the story above is quite unimportant and uneventful, it shows me that I have got a very cavalier attitude towards giving up smoking. However this attitude seems to be helping to the extent where I am not suffering from cravings. Hence my statement "The could be a tough one!!!", it feels like it will be as easy to go back to the evil weed as it will be to stay off it for the time being (I am sure that will change in the near future).
Well I hope everyone out there on their no smoking campaigns have a nice successful day today.
I am going to have a serious chat with my self and tell my self to buck my ideas up.
