Hello all

Hello all. Well I didn't smoke, but I do think that is my mate had any one him(which he didn't) I would have! So very close shave. I hate what smoking makes me. Selfish, moody and why is it that I can't relax when there is someone who smokes around me. I hate it and myself even more for letting the white sticks control me like they do. They are still making me feel like utter shit and had yet another bad day with things yesterday. I don't want to smoke but for some reason, this weekend I can't stop thinking about them and I am so grumpy! I just need to get through today and I know things will get better. I want to start enjoying and living at the weekend but find it very difficult presently.

  • Aw Tash, we've all been there. That feeling fades with time. Instead of sniffing violently when there is a smoker near me (and my boyfy smokes) the smell now has an adverse reaction with me. My body can now distinguish it as poison and my noise starts to tickle and I sneeze!! I must be allergic or something, this keeps happening. Now i'm no longer addicted my body isn't kidding itself anymore. Isn't the body a wonderful thing?

    Stick in there, this too shall pass :)

  • Hi Tash. No smokes! None! I'm watching you...and if I spy you sneaking in to a garage to buy some smokes I'm gonna be right on your case woman! :p

    Hope you feel better soon. I wish you could see the nasty things for what they truly are. Get reading an AC book!

    Do you think I'll get commission if I keep this up? :D

  • Well I'm sorry you feel that way phil. I have only commented on his book on a couple of threads. I do realise people do not like stuff to be shoved down their throats so I only speak of AC if I feel its appropriate (if I think to). I may be well into AC at the mo, but if someone is struggling and I think the book can help, then whats the prob? Others recommend other quit smoking aids on here...swings and roundabouts.

    Anyway, I shall refrain from talking about AC anymore on this site and I will not say any more on the matter as I do not wish to disrespect Tash and turn this thread into a silly one :)

  • I have to agree with Phil and Maddie. Yes there is an awful lot of repetition in the book, and this did put me off reading it a little, and beause of this I will admit I only got half way through the book last time, because to be honest I was quite bored with it.....But! The content was excellent and what I read definitely made me feel different about my atttitude to my adiction. So I can see both sides. I'm feeling better this afternoon, think I may sell my soul on ebay :confused:

  • Well done Tash 2 weeks 2moro your doing fab. Linda xxxxxxxxxxx

  • Thanks Linda. Hasn't been an easy weekend for me but I have made it through (just about!) I'm really quite pleased tha it's nearly a fortnight! :D x

  • Apologies from me too if i've been harking on about Allen Carr - I just wanted to let others know that it isn't this terrible sacrifice to stop smoking and that you'll be miserable.

    I just hate all the 'I've been quit for 'x' years and still want to smoke' stories.... these people must be insane. If I felt like that after 'x' years I would just bloody smoke and be done with it.

    I quit because of ME, not anyone else, but the book helped me. There, i'll STFU now. You all go back to selling NRT :p

  • Hey Wkdfairy - don't STFU (I'm getting to understandf this forum language now!) Different things work for different people. I think for me it will be a combination of really wanting to crack it and learning from the past experiences of quits and knowledge, and AC has definitely helped me somewhat! Well done on the quit, you have a lot to celebrate! x

  • Hi Tash

    Feeling better tonight? Hope so.

    Bit of a boring one for me. Mind, nothing new there. I need to get a life!

    Think I'm gonna go on the Wii for a bit afore I head to my pit. Bought Super Mario Galaxy today, its great!

  • Hiya Maddy. I am feeling a little better thanks. Just sat on the sofa for 3 hours wrapped in a blanket and watched the first series of Gavin and Stacey on DVD with a glass of wine and feeling much brighter for it! Think I'm nearly ready for bed now. I've been quite tempted to get a WI. Thing is my husband is addicted to pro evo on the xbox 360 and I wouldn't get a look in! GTA out soon - joy I will then be a GTA widow :mad: Hope you are feeling better tonight too x

    Thanks, you're too sweet :D
