Here we go again!!

Hey, well done to all of you for starting day 1. I have just failed and got to day 7 and lapsed last nite so I have dragged my weiry butt back here. This time I am determined to get past my weak point and do it!!! I am trying to stay positive. I am back on 21mg and will continue those for the week, then look to go to 14mg. Don't be fooled ever that a fag will taste nice after a week, it was foul. My problem was that I had a good drink which did really not help me, so I think I am going to stay of the beer aswell.

:)

  • Good idea to stay off the demon drink for a wee while methinks!

    Don't feel to bad, it is just a wee glitch in your plan. Take a deep breath and start again - you know you can do this!

    Good luck and have a nice day :)

  • Okey dokey Beau, no buggering about this time OK!!

    I must admit I started off doing a month with no fags and no booze just to see if I could, don't know which was the hardest to be honest.

    Lots of swimming has helped.

    After a month seemed a shame to go back on the fags so stayed quitted (!).

    Back on the booze now though.

    Keep at it folks.

  • You can do it, good job coming right back here!

  • Okay Beau

    Now ya know what ya downfall was, but now your back on track. We're all here for ya

    Keep smiling!

  • Now is the time

    Hi all,

    I started smoking at the tender age of 15, I am 60 in 2 days time and have promised myself to give up the filthy habit and be healthy for the rest of my days. Will power permitting.:)

  • you're not the first and won;t be the last. I hope I can do it in one fell swoop, thanks for reminding us taking up smoking again even after a week is not satisfying.

    I think staying off the booze is going to be very important for me.

    I have thrown all my lighters, cigarettes, paapers, tobaccco, filters in the bin so i have no access to cigarettes. I may have a drink on friday night to test the waters - not much though.

    Hey gerry, welcome to the madhouse.

    I suppose you're hoping to be all the proof anyone will need that it's never to late to stop, and that "you're never too old to learn new tricks". :)

    Good luck with the stopping and may the process to freedom from the evil weed be an easy one!

    I smoked my last cigarette 1 Week, 4 hours and 29 minutes ago. I have saved £65.53 by not smoking 287 cigarettes. I have saved 23 hours and 55 minutes of my life.

  • I was actually thinking about doing that , as day 7 has both been with patches , i also looked at the fact the patch gives you 14mg of nicotine compared to the nico you get per cig does the patch not work out more!

    Hi Casey - Did you originally start quitting on the 21 mg patches or 14 mg patches. If you can't face going CT then I would suggest the 21 mg patches if you want to go down this way of quitting. I started on the 21 Jan and slipped on the 27th but restarted on the 28th. I came off the 21 mg and went on to 15 mg three weeks ago. When I went to the nurse on Monday I asked to be put on the 10 mg patches. I also use an inhaler when the patch was changed to a lower dose to help with the craving stages and found after a while I wasn't using it as much. Shouting, screaming and (dare I say it:rolleyes:) swearing also helps when the craving starts.

    There is also a gel called Nicogel you can use by rubbing into your hands and it lasts for hours. I used some yesterday and found it helped a lot.

    Hope this helps.

    PS - sorry I forgot to welcome you to the forum
