  • Hello and welcome to the forum. Yep you stay with us and i am sure you will quit. There are so many of us here that there is always someone around to chat to you.

    Never mind about yesterday put that behind you. Have a nice relaxing night and maybe go to bed if you start to get strong cravings. Then you will wake up and be in day 2.

    Good luck x

  • Dear sir/madam.

    Its ok to be shot down. And its ok to be held as a prisoner. Just remember its your duty to always try and escape:) Yes, the fags have guards and spotlights and sniffer dogs and you might well be caught as you dig a tunnel/build a glider/hide in a wooden horse. Just remember, whatever angle you try to stop, and regardless of which ones fail, ONE of them will work. Its just a question of finding whatever psychological reasoning works for you. Never give up giving up. You will eventually win. Then the war will be over and you can get back to blighty.

    In the meantime, keep sending a ping on the wireless and we'll get red cross parcels of support to you.

    Tally ho.

  • hehehehehehehe nicely put cloud_9, tis true, Ive lost count of the amount of times Ive stopped and started, but the important thing is we are all back here today, struggling, but staying strong!

    keep it up bower you will get there, never give up giving up!:D

    Hi,don't get down on yourself Ive done that a million times, i am not sure i still have it right yet.Are you using anything to help yourself or is it cold turkey.

  • For the two weeks before I finally quit (fingers crossed there - day 62 and counting) - I stopped smoking 4 times each week! Isn't it horrible? You end up despising yourself...........how flipping weak and pathetic. Then there's the time you loose your temper with yourself, and say: enough! I've had it! So quit, go a bit bonkers for a while, stamp yer foot, throw plasticine at a dart board, prune a tree to the stump, anything you do is fine but you've just gotta say "NO"!

  • Hello Bower and welcome! Hope today is going well for you - it's tough at the start but it's worth it and as it gets easier you begin to see the nasty nic for what s/he really is. Keep strong and keep busy.:)

    (Cloud 9, love your ****ogy!):D (Oh, weird censoring..that word is a.n.a.l.ogy!)

  • hi ste, look nasty nic is a he. i always suspected it. smelly, messy, and very hard to live without, he he! Present company excluded. lol
