Day 13 - Lucky for some, or not?

13 has a bit of significance to me.

I was born on a Friday the 13th.

I passed my high school exams on a 13th.

I got my current job as IT manager on Jan 13th 2007.

And of course, this quit started on the 13th :D

It's generally very lucky for me. Today is day 13 of my quit - and I'm struggling a bit, if I'm honest.

Last night I dreamt I had 2 puffs and woke up panicking in a cold sweat... took me several minutes to realise it was the middle of the night and there were no fags nearby. A cold moment of realisation that my "demon" is still not asleep.

Also, just before bed last night I had my first temper tantrum :mad: Not nice. Luckily the Mrs took it in her stride.... "About time, I thought you were too cheerful recently" were her exact words.

And I have been, my only change in mood has been for the better so far - but today I am grumpy as hell :(

Damn you number 13!!!!!!!!! :D

no matter how easy some of us find a quit, there are always moments which creep up on us and catch us by surprise.

It is not the "easy" times we need to worry about, they will take care of themselves, it is the "moments" like you are having today that we need to watch out for. You are going really well with this quit and i feel that even if you get a couple of bad days you will not cave in to these feelings.

stay strong Stuart

Please don't get me wrong - my resolve has not been dampened by this. I have simply accepted it as part of the process.

However, it is still difficult. I never thought it would be easy and I will get through, have no fear.

Thanks for the support guys, I do appreciate it - and it really does help :)

Hang on in there,

There are good days and bad days, the longer you do the more good days there are and fewer bad.

All the best

One thing I am taking as a big positive is that in the dream, I felt horrible having those 2 puffs. Very sick and very dizzy. When I woke up, I felt ill - and very angry with myself until I realised it was just a dream... and then realised that I still had no desire to smoke.

So... the dream is a sign that I still have to be very vigilant, but I am winning - and I will carry on winning :D

dreams are a b!@tch aren't they??? confuses the hell out of me! The other day i dreampt i was driving down a road near where i live in a tank and stopped at the co-op to buy a vintage musket! then chickened out of going to war because i didn't want to leave my son without a mummy (bizarre! just a subconscious manifestation of your anxieties and fears), stay strong and positive and kick the demon into touch, we are in control no one and nothing else! (not even a tank ;) ):D xx
