1 of those days !!!

Well not doing to well today don't know where my happy mood went?!?

All last night and today i have had the strongest urges to have a fag even though i am not craving i am getting these urges , does that make sense ?!?

It is like i know if i have a fag now i have let myself down and will have to start this quit all over again from day 1 and i also know that if i do have a fag it will taste horrible and prob make me sick or something so that i know but at the same time i find myself having these urges . also as well as the urges i am finding myself getting really angry and having to bite my tongue so i don't throw a tirade of abuse at people .

I just wanted to know if any of what i have wrote makes sense and has anybody else felt this way at this stage of the quit ????!?

    I felt like this exactly - only a couple of weeks ago.

    An urge that wasn't a crave, but was so strong I nearly caved anyway...

    The way I got round it was a mixture of reading and sheer bloodymindedness...

    You will get round it, you know you will - simply because there is no viable alternative. Please have a read through some of your old posts with your reasons and determination nearer the start of your quit and read some articles and posts from other places. Hopefully you will find something that lets you refocus.

    I hope you feel better soon :)

  • Yep, you are not alone!!

    This was me!

  • I think most of us have been there, Tracy.

    When it happened to me, a few quiet moments taking deep breaths and just thinking the whole thing through logically, made the crave disappear and left me smiling (honestly! ) :)

  • Tracy Hope you feel better really soon Babe. take a nice long walk dont go back to day one you will be gutted. Hows your mum doing. xxxxxxx

  • Buddy - As people have said - just remember why you quit. I have too been where you are, its not a crave - just a non-craving desire - a thought rather than a want. Its mad! You will get through it as you don't want to do those horrible early days of the quit again. Just think - every problem moment that is successfully dealt with is a moment closer to your goal.

  • Me Me *jumps up and down with hand in the air*

    I do right now. Can't shake the bleeding thing. On day 3 of it now and for the first time in ages I woke up and wanted a smoke :eek: I didn't even do that when I smoked. :confused:

    I know it will pass but its annoying me now. Its been 2 months tomorrow and would have hoped to be past this now, and I suppose thats the bit that 'could' (but won't) make me cave, how much longer do I have to put up with this??

    S xx

  • how much longer do I have to put up with this??

    As long as it takes, I'm afraid.

    Try reading everything you ever read on the subject again, make sure that everything is re-affirmed in your head. Part of my problem was that I was finding it easier and I forgot some of the things I was previously so certain about.

    All the best, you will beat it ;)

  • It does seem to me that there have been points where I was finding it really quite easy only to have a strong desire to smoke creep up on me from nowhere.

    I have now accepted that this will continue to happen from time to time. Given that I smoked for the best part of 2 decades it is unrealistic to expect to wipe the concept of smoking from my mind in just a few months.

  • today's been my day of strong urges too, but i actually dreamt last night of smoking !! consequently i woke up thinking about it... i wont have one but its been a difficult morning ....:confused:
