No Smoking Day

Can i have a moan

I feel bad for moaning because i am on patches but I am finding this so bloody hard.:mad:

Its just not getting any easier. I really thought that by now i wouldnt be thinking about it so much but i am.

My patch fell off today and i turned into the devil women. I put a new patch on but still feel like i am going mad.

I want to do this and i am going to keep going but i dont want to feel this miserable any more.

Aw Flippy dear you sure can have a moan you poor thing *hugs*

I'd love to say it's probably just a matter of time and tomorrow you'll feel great, but I am also very sure it's also a matter of how you really took this quit, I mean like a deprivation or like a liberation, a gesture of freedom and optimism or a gesture of regretful giving up? Because there's a helluva lot of difference, IMHO, between quit and quit, depending on your mind frame back then...There's even difference between methods, and I have no clue about patches, maybe someone else will be able to give you advice. I can only suggest watching a movie that will really make you laugh a lot - laughing will distract you, take that sadness away from your chest, and do all sorts of good to your system :D



Thanks for your reply. I do want to do this and am more determined that i have ever been before, i just hate this sad feeling.

You are right i should think of it as a liberation and i will.

Aw Flippy x x x x x x x

I promise you that you will not going to feel like this forever, when you get through you will feel so much better than before x x x

You have an sad feeling because it is like you have lost an old friend, albeit a toxic one!!

You have used smoking as a crutch for so long that now the crutch has gone you feel a sense of loss or even grieving x x

Old friends are gone but never forgotten you are doing a fantastic job and will continue to do so with shear strength and power!

However you feel, put a smile on your face and hold your head high, you have come so far and are a real trooper x x

I feel your pain!

Isn't it strange how one day you can do so well then others are just horrific. I was wondering if exposure to certain things are triggers. I have had great days and really, really bad days. I was thinking maybe I should start writing down what I have eaten and done during the day. Do you think certain foods could trigger??

That's an interesting thought!! I reckon you could be right because I know craves are linked to glucose levels. regular water drinking is a good help too!
