ME miss Flippy
I am here morning how you doing today. had a bit of a bad start (really miss my morning one) Not feeling to bad now Linda xxxxxxxx
I am here nearly 2 weeks eh! go us!
Not quite sure how but I'm still here -- just.
I was told each day gets easier and once I got the first few days over it did, in each day there was a tiny improvement which encouraged me but for about the last 4 or 5 days it seems to be getting worse and harder and harder and to be honest I'm fed up of fighting it, I feel I'm running out of the strength, will power and just plain inclination to be bothered
I'm fed up of feeling like this, I'm fed up of seeing the weight I'm gaining (I don't even want to talk about that!) I'm fed up of being ratty and snappy with my husband, kids, friends, family and Joe Bloggs who passes me in the street.
I'm fed up with being fed up and just want things to get back to normal even if that means being a smoker!
Sorry -- this is the most negative post I've ever made but that's how I'm feeling and if I can't be honest with you guys who can I be honest with
hugs Angie x x
It is full of ups and downs, you are so close to otherside. Please hang tight and look forward to feeling better than ever x x
It is better to snap at the kids than to teach them to smoke or give them a sick mum.
write down all those reasons why you quit and remember why you are here.
Then put on your coat go out and buy yourself a treat x x x x
me me me im still here - found my puffer this morning still a bit edgy but not as bad as yesterday - well done all xxxxxx
I'm still here too, just been trying to be as busy as possible.
This is without doubt the most incredibly hardest thing that I have done in recent years. I have a day when I thing its getting easier and then all of a sudden (yesterday) I feel lost, my heads all over the shop. I had road rage, shop rage, golf rage - you name it - I raged at it, then I watched a film in the cinema and nearly cried (I am Legend - its not even sad but there is a bit with his dog that had me coughing to cover my tears). After that I went for a nice meal and thought 'whats the point', because I couldn't drink or smoke with/before/after the meal and just did not enjoy it.
I'm horrible to the people around me, I feel like I'm hungover all the time, I'm bored, depressed, my head hurts, i can't sleep properly and it goes on.
But I will not go back to the way I was. My mind does play games with me but one thing it can't fool me with is - if I enjoyed my life so much before, why did I decide to quit - thats why I know I have to keep it up.
Nobody in my 'life' knows I do this forum, nor do they know how much it helps to sound off.
Well done to others from the New Year quitters who are still staying strong.
Ruth and Sutty I can relate to both of your posts and feel the same way as you.
Every morning i wonder why I am doing this. Why did i come on here and tell everyone. If i hadnt i could could have a smoke and no one would know. But if i go missing you lot are going to know i caved in and i dont want you lot to think of me as a failure so here I still am.
I keep thinking that one day, i dont know what day but one day it will all be a distant memory and i will be free from this nicotine addiction.
Well done to each and everyone of you for staying strong and still being here with me.
Don't forget me Flippy Im still here Lke Angela, l have also found the last 3 or 4 days really, really hard. Today, so far, does seem a bit better though
I couldnt forget you josie
Well done everyone, im really sorry for letting you guys down im off to change my signature
Lots of angst posting today.
What can I say except I know exactly how you feel. Old demon nic hates quitters and will do anything to get you back. No doubt it is a tough, eye-gouging, nail scratching, knock-down-drag-out fight to quit, but the good news is that week three is a lot better than week two; week four is a lot better than week three, and so on.
This is definately one race that does not go to the swift, but the determined.
Best of luck!
Quit: 18 October 2007
Method: Cold Turkey
Coming up to month four this week!
this is getting harder by the day! first three days were ok then the craving has steadily got worse, I stopped cold turkey on jan 1st after reading allan carrs easy way, started out determined! begining to doubt that now. HELP :eek:
I'm in the same boat as you welshwytch (except Im not a woman or from Wales). I quit on Jan 1st and have found it harder as we get further.
My only advice is to think why you quit in the first place...more than likely health.
Instead of thinking Im not smoking AGAIN, I am using the...will not smoke til the end of the week/month or whatever time period I need to relax my thoughts. I do keep telling myself that this is not the end for my smoking, I may return whenever I want. Strangely this seems to work for me, it makes it less final. Tell yourself that you will go without till end of this month only and then see how you feel, then review it when you get there. Its only a couple of weeks away, you have done that already.
Hi all Can really agree with what your all saying. have had a bad few days Thur,fri, and sat But do feel a little better to day. Just thinking i will take each day has it comes and hopefully turn the corner really soon. we can all do it if we stick together Linda xxxxxx
Hello there! Yes, I am still here. Just been busy all weekend :). Not doing at all badly today.
Sara! I'm so glad you're back with us. Don't beat yourself up about it. Keep going ;).
Speak to you all tomorrow and see you in Week 3 on Tuesday :D!

Sutty this does make a whole lot of sense to me, in fact your method is very similar to something I used to do at the beginning I actually used to say that although I had no interest in smoking anymore :rolleyes: yada yada yet "as soon as I was stronger I might always decide to have the odd one, just the odd one, you know, not out of sorrow or stress but in fact the opposite, out of sheer relaxation, something I might train myself to do no more than once a month maybe" etc etc etc
This was obviously just me trying to not freak out during those hard days but as weird as it might sound, it worked amazingly for me! So stick to your calming thought sutty and you'll be surprised to see that once you are truly stronger, in the not too distant future, you won't even need that thought anymore
Congrats everyone who mde it to day 13!
thanks for the advice sutty, just hanging in there
Night all see you in day 14. Then on to week three we are doing fab Arnt we gang. Linda xxxxxxxxxxxx
