Day 8

into week 2 at last. Not feeling as positive today. The novelty of the benefits seems to have worn off and I'm feeling sorry for myself - not really because of not smoking as such, I have to take a lot of painkillers and some days they make me feel a bit odd.

Oh well, sure I'd be feeling sorrier for myself if I hadn't stopped smoking. Think i should go and read my list of reasons again and remind myself why I'm doing this.

  • Hi Hbav

    I think your doing great you do get days were you dont feel great but we had them when we smoked also. Keep up the good work allmost on double numbers. You should feel so proud of your self. Linda xxx

  • Eight it is...

    I share your feelings, hbav! Don't know why, but today I've been thinking about a drag more and more..

    I shan't of course...

    Eight down and hopefully a longer life to go...

    Good luck!

    I think we are fooled into thinking it is more and more x x

    The first few days it is 24/7 now it pops into our heads and it feels like a surge!!

    Stay strong guys x x

    The moments between those thoughts are becoming more n more

  • Thanks for all your wise (!) words. I just have to realise that I would have had sh*tty days when I was smoking too and that the last thing that would help would be to give in now. Although tbh it does seem tempting at the moment. I just wish I could feel more positive about this like I did a few days ago. I always seem to get to this point and then think what's the point. I don't want to keep doing this but I don't seem to have any motivation today.

  • No problem H,

    Let the day pass without motivation! and without smoking,

    tomorrow you will feel better x x

    the next day better still!!
