Another one bumping up the ranks


Onto week two!

Well really struggled yesterday all afternoon. Majorly moody and wanted a ciggie but didn't succumb. I feel like I'm going through inner turmoil, almost like good cop / bad cop sitting on my shoulders. Hope you know what I mean.....

Just have to think NTAP and get on with living without coughing my guts up daily for the sake of me and all those around me.

I know how good damn awful they are for me but why doesn't my mind know that yet....

Happy to have quit but wish I was as happy as I thought I would feel.

Good luck to us all

Hi Jane

I too gave up on April 7th, and funnily enough I had the day from hell yesterday too, I really don't know how I got through yesterday but I did, and what we need to keep in our minds is that we are really doing the best thing we could possible do for ourselves and for our families. :)

I know exactly how your feeling and I am hoping that with time pangs/cravings massive headaches! will diminsh.

Keep up the fantastic work Jane! You are doing great! :D



Well done Fay & Jane

Your both doing fab. the worse thing about having a bad day is you think it will never go but they always pass. I bet you have more good days than bad I know I do. Linda xxxx


Thank you xxx

You are so right! I am still laughing at the glasweigen version! xxx:D


Thanks everyone, and I too am laughing at the Glaswegian version! Think that will be my new mantra (have to not say it round 4 yr old daughter tho)



hi there Jane and Fay...

I'm just a week ahead of you and just wanted

to back up what the others are saying,

that it will get easier day by day but some days are

worse than others - I've just survived the 4day-weekend

from hell - I thought I wanted to smoke to get through

it but when it came to it I just asked myself

"will it be any better with a cigarette"

and of course the answer was a great big"NO":cool:

good luck stay strong:D
