One of those day

Its hard to explain but i have had one of those days today. One of those days meaning that i have craved for a cigarette. I dont know why as i never felt this way yesterday. Reading some earlier posts today i think the lesson is that you can never get complacent. You never know when the urge will come again. Im pleased to say however that i never went back and thats how i would see smoking again - a big step backwards in my life... I feel better now getting that weakness off my chest... and i feel stronger and ready for another smoke free week. thanks again to whoever invented this web site . it has helped me yet again...

  • I've said it before and I'll say it again,

    There are good days and bad days, as time goes on there are more good days and fewer bad ones.

    However, you should expect there to be bad days and every time you beat one it reinforces your quit!

    Keep on moving forwards!

  • This place really does help at times doesn't it?

    I cruised through the first 6 weeks or so of my quit, couldn't beleive how easy it was. I even moved house 2 weeks in. Then I hurt my leg and was housebound, and bored.

    Week 7 nearly ended my quit, I thought about smoking constantly and it was this place that saved me. Once I got past that, it was back to cruising again.

    I still don't know why I was craving so hard, but it happens. Forgotten about now :D

    The urges can and will strike at random - you just have to be ready not to smoke!

    Well done.

    Remember the mantra..

    "you may occasionally want a cigarette, but you'll always wish you hadn't..."

    Even those with very strong quits still get the urge, the difference is the mental speed at which those thoughts are beaten into submission...

    Thanks Austin! :D

  • Most of us who post on this forum have experienced the compelling "want" for a smoke. The difference between wanting and "doing" is immense!!!

    I think that if you don't have these occasional craves, longings or whatever you want to call them, then you have conquered your smoking addition/habit completely and are ready to go it alone.

    However, the majority of people who post here get that feeling every now and again, some more than others. That's why it's helpful to keep posting so that we can all give each other support when we might just weaken!

    You don't really want to be a smoker again, do you:eek:!!
