About week four

Well, week four cannot get any worse, I cant wait to lose week three.

Its been awfull, I have been so poorly. I took my patch of for two days, as I felt so ill, then found myself flinging my four year olds racing track across the room because I couldnt fix it together. Then my daughter said out the blue ' you should have something to sqeeze in your hand when you get so angry' and that made me feel so guilty.

I could say I am giving up smoking for them aswell, but its not their problem I shouldnt of been smoking in the first place.

Anyway - today I do feel a bit better, a bit more humane. But then everyday I have had an hour off where I have felt ok, then the ailments come back again.

I shall look posative - no pain no gain - and another posative is that this week has made me loathe smoking with a passion. Fancy doing it to myself ......

Nicotine and the chemicals are sneaky, and fags quietly kill you, whilst giving you a short lived buzz.

Welcome week four .....pleased to meet you.

  • Well done Annette it's far easier to give in and have a fag than it is to stick with it.

    You know there are good days and bad days - and when there IS a bad day you know a good day is just around the corner.

    ( I confess to misreading your post first as saying " flinging my four year old across the room" :eek::p)

  • Hi Annette

    Sorry to hear you're going through a really bad patch...sure hope it improves for you. Its awful isn't it? One minute you think you're doing ok and then when the tiniest of things go wrong you're like a totally different person to the one you was just a second ago. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground where you have some tolerance for things before losing your rag...its just instant anger! aahh!

    So you're on week four, woo hoo! You'll have done a month before you know it. A whole month! Darn, I'm not even half way there yet booo! Oh well, I'll just keep chasing after you Annette and forever will you remain 2 weeks in front of me!!

  • Stay strong! Rooting for you with everything i got!

  • Hi Annette, what mg patch are you putting on? i started off my quit using 21mg and they made me feel ill so i knocked them on the head on day 6.

    If your using 21mg and you really want to wear the patch why dont you try 14 or 7mg.

    Keep going, the month mark is just round the corner, can you imagine how your going to feel when you wake up and say "I have been a Non Smoker for one month" !!!! Wow:)

  • re patch

    I am on 15 mg - but as from tommorrow I am going down to 10 mg.

    Have you found you get really thirsty?

  • bless you

    Ah Annette, bless you, I know how you feel my hubbie has never ever smoked and he thinks he's married a monster or alien disguised as a human. I have smoked for 37 years, I told him to go forth and multiply yesterday, he took it on the chin. On Monday it will be the start of my week 4. I can only discribe the start of a temper out burst as palputations in my chest, water, water , water is the secret for me. Patches made me worse so after the first week I took the patches off and went cold turkey, but I'm sick of feeling unwell at times. Hang in there!! this site keeps me going. THANKS PEOPLE OUT THERE!!!

    Sorry Annette, i missed your question.

    Well by now your down to 10mg and i hope your feeling better for it.

    I dont think i used the patches long enough for them to kick in with their full side effects, all i can remember is that i felt rotten with them. I swear i could feel the Nic shooting down my arm :)

  • (((Hugs))) Annette. I have almost completed week 4, and hey, if I can do it......

    Think how wonderful it is going to be when you are totally free and not constantly thinking about fags any more :)

    A little pain, yes, but oh, what a lot to gain! :)

    Keep it up, you CAN do this!
