woo hoo

Day 2 hey! get me :D

Must say i'm doing it with pretty much no support from my family. I saw my mum last night and when i told her my last cigarette was 24 hrs previous she laughed at me and didn't really want to know :(

I know it's fear because she smokes but bit of encouragement would be nice!

She also kept telling me i was being moody, i know i wasn't because i'm feeling oddly serene (go figure).

Sorry to have a moan, was just feeling rather peeved by her whole attitude to it.

On the other hand though my dad's said if in 2 weeks still not smoking he'll give me £20.

Hows everyone else doing???

I have been quit for 1 Day, 10 hours, 54 minutes and 26 seconds (1 days). I have saved £16.57 by not smoking 72 cigarettes. I have saved 6 hours of my life. My Quit Date: 03/03/2008 20:30

  • I'm going ct. i myself think it's the only way i'm going to be able to do it. My addiction to nicotein is so strong i dare not feed it any longer. It had got to the point when i was smoking a ciggie that halfway through smoking it i'd be thinking about my next one (which would be lit the instant 1 was finished).

    I'm already feeling loads better :D

    Yep, you're dead right, she's afraid, all smokers are afraid and they hate it when one of the herd breaks free, because then there's fewer in the herd. Safety in numbers. Also, when someone close to you gives up smoking, it forces you to an-alyse your own smoking life, and as we all know, taking the decision to give up smoking is quite a frightening one, which is why so many people put it off.

    Stay strong, Louise, remember your reasons for giving up, and pity your Mum for still being held in the nicotine trap.

  • Hi Louise.

    Well done for not giving in to the nasty weed. You're doing really good :p

    Sorry to hear your mum isn't too supportive right now. Maybe she will become more helpful when you have shown you are serious about this? I don't know.

  • Welcome Louise
