team 8 strong

hello jude, dave08, cword, catmagpie, jan southon, lorraine, debsblair, hadders (phew!)

I thought I'd post here for all of us although some of us are already in month 2 (which I will join tonight ;)

I am feeling a bit tight chested/anxious today with a tiny cigarette voice whispering in my ear since I got up . I was craving yesterday evening out of the blue and found it difficult to shake off -and I am so disappointed I am still feeling on edge today...It is very very manageable/easy but it's there - right in the background...

I still cannot believe it will be a calendar month for me tonight. It has been an interesting ride with Champix. But I still have a lot of work to do on addressing the fact that I still sometimes feel that I am depriving myself like now (even though I know this is not true - arghh confusing!)

Hope all of you are well - have a great weekend x

  • Oh - and most importantly I forgot - happy birthday lorraine! have a fab day! x

  • hi you doing great it does get better each day i give up november 11 i was chain smoker 40 a day i was going nuts .didnt know what to do with myself but i done it i still get bad days now and then but it worth it and it passes in seconds good luck

  • Thanks for the encouragement Janet4. It is nice to hear from someone who is ahead of me. I do kick myself (mentally) at times to shoo the voice away and reinforce my quit. It has been awhile since I got it this bad...This one is irritating because so "quiet" but also so present if I make any senses?

    Anyway - as you say and from the past 4 weeks, I am sure it will get better and better with time and I'll be able to silence it by the sheer joy of not smoking anymore :) Very much looking forward to that time!

    Hi Cat - I have the same quiet voice some times so yes it does make sense to me. My problem is the sleepless nights:(. They are driving me mad. :mad: I do what has been advised on here like drinking water, reading, etc, but its not being able to get to sleep before say 04.30 am and when you have to get up at 07.30 am to get ready for work its a bit draining. No doubt this will pass.

    Anyway, hope you all have a good weekend. Will catch up with everyone on Monday.

    Hi Jan4 - thank you for that. It's soooooo nice to know that you aren't on your own isn't it. I do like this forum.:D

    Jan - have you tried over the counter remedies (kalms etc?) I remember people saying it helped them.
