Following on Austin's thread, nosmokingday.org.uk/forum/s... until I "saw the light" about the whole smoking/not smoking thing, I always associated the "deep breaths" everyone tells you to take when 'Ol Nic tries to tempt you, with the pain of childbirth :eek:
You know, Contraction coming? Take a deep breath until it passes... in....out....in....out...... that's it, deep breaths.... as your brain frantically races ahead wishing the midwife would shut her gob and just MAKE THE PAIN GO AWAY!!!!!!!! ARGHHH!!!!!!!:eek:
Why did no-one tell me I should be enjoying those deep breaths, smiling inwardly cos 'Ol Nic actually thinks he has a chance of winning, and I "Oh Serene One" know better?
I don't really get any cravings any more, but I still get the wee odd "notion" for a ciggie, and I actually enjoy the feeling now, as it reminds me how clever I am in quitting
Deep breaths, everyone
