So who's around in week 2?

Anyone out there?

I've been cruising through the later weeks and months. Everyone seems to know everyone. Feels a little strange.

Still, it is good to read the ups and downs.

I sort of suspect there's a knack to being on a forum..Something unsaid that i don't get.

Ah well. maybe just the nic-o-tine talking. (Puffing away here as i write).

Good luck to everone who's struggling today...and those that aren't!"

  • Hi Bill

    This is the first forum I have ever been on takes some getting used to but Im sure you will. Well done on your Two weeks.LInda xxxxx

  • Hello Bill!

    Hope you get as much out of this forum as I did. Just pop on and post whenever you have the urge to. I post a lot to take my mind off the "not smoking thing". Even though the "not smoking thing" is what we are all talking about - it does really help (strangely!)

  • Hi Bill!!

    Forums are a bit weird.. and do take a bit of getting uused to, but you're not missing anything I don't think!! :D

    Keep posting and saying what you feel whenever you feel it - do whatever you have to do on here to help yourself.. we're all here to support and help each other in whatever way is needed!

    Do you have a quit team at all? It's a good thing to be part of, keeps you focused.. by that I mean - a group of members on here that all stopped on the same day as you that you can "check in" with each day.. if not, and if you're feeling lonely at any time, just jump onto ours.. we are on week 3 but it doesn't matter 'cause we can all share our week 2 experiences with you if it will help you!

    Keep strong and keep going!! You're doing so well! :D

  • OK then, thanks for the posts!

    it's true that just hanging out and talking seems to make it much more certain that THIS is the one where I really finish with fags, I've been giving up and starting again for years but I did sense trhat having some people to share with would make a defference...And it does.

    All the best...

    Just had a major mess in the desert yesterday...A 4X4 full of gendarmes (not wearing seat belts and armed) went over a 40 foot drop off a dune going about 45 mph.

    Ooops.

    Noone killed, though, so that's a blessing

  • Hi Sue,

    Yes, I stopped on Wednesday 6th...I'd been stopped before but I faltered.

    That was the day i flew out of UK and it's much easier to stay quit here.

    The crunch will come (again!) when i go back on 28th.

    So far I'm fine. If you can't quit here you never will. Bed made, food cooked, tennis played etc etc...NO BOOZE!!!!!!

    It all helps. But I'v been around this giving up/ starting thing so long...I know pretty much all the physical things I get. The hardest is i tend to get really miserable for spells. Just blue. I wonder about that. Could be stuff coming to the surface that smoking has kept at bay. Like the stuff that gets chucked up from your lungs.

    Anyway, enough...

    Better do some work!

  • Hi Dd,

    Yes, you're right about the ups and downs.

    They went back out to look at the car and took the wheels off (it was upside down and squashed!) 'cos they were worried about it being stripped by Bedouin!

    Ah, life...you gotta laugh.

    Saved some wheels, though!
