Where is everyone

Oh dear. Obviously Month 1 is a lonely place. The last post on here was 2 days ago.

I shall talk to my self then. Have finished with the patches after the bout of flu last week and don't miss them at all. Have resigned myself to the fact that I will probably always think about cigarrettes on and off but this does not mean I want to actually smoke one. The idea of smoking does now seem odd - why would you want to inhale smoke?! Although I know that if I was told I was going to drop down dead in a month I would start smoking again. Half of me thinks about smoking but doesn't actually want to do it, the other half doesn't want to smoke again as I feel sort of free and cleaner and, let's face it, wealthier.

Anyone else have any musings on not smoking 1 month down the line? It's a strange old place where the novelty of giving up has gone and all your left with is a weird sense of nothingness. Deep down I know it's a dangererous place where being complacent could really screw things up.

  • Ooooh, stay strong and keep on remembering why you wanted to quit in the first place. Well done on reaching a month! Funny, my stepsister quit 8 years ago before she had kids. She said to me that if she is still here at 65 and the kids are all grown up and independent she'll buy herself a Harley Davidson and start smoking again - I always thought she was joking but perhaps not! :eek:

  • I guess you would have forgotten about smoking by then but you never know...

    That is soooooo true, even now i feel exactly the same, if someone said thats it your turn id be like a bloody chimney.

    However - i would have to start liking them again 1st as having had a puff the other week, it tasted so bloody disgusting i might have trouble.

    Trust yourself, dont be put in situations where you dont feel comfy, 3 months down the line i really have turned a corner and have turned into a non smoking moany old bag who cannot stand the smell of it - not who i want to be i hate myself - lol
