Im in this gang now!

Day4 for me.

Finding the day times much harder than the evenings. Thats due to the fact Id smoke in the day to punctuate, my evenings are much more busy so hardly bothered to smoke then.

Helps that i can chat on here when the wave takes over.

Woops

:eek:Hi Ophelia,

It's taken me 5 mins to understand what you are saying!

Oh...the day 4 place...I get it now.

Well done, keep on ...all human kind (well, thankfully noone under the age of 10 that I've seen...{though some with a mental age of, shall we say, less than 21}) is here!

Day 14 and on and on for me!

You could but that would take some careful arranging so as not to look too obvious.

You could even choose your own curly wurly.... :D

Well my usual shopping outfit is my dominatrix one, i find it very useful to have the whips and all, for getting slow people out of the way.

So say hi, if you see me!

Well day five here we go!

Please to say didnt wake up fancying a smoke this morning, so I'm feeling thats progress in itself.

No doubt Ill have a crave over the next hour or so, but I also know that it wont be as bad as yesterday, and if I got through yesterday I can get through today.

All I can say is thank heavens I'm not going out this weekend!:D

nsd_user663_3768 profile image
nsd_user663_3768

Never thought Id say this, but I'm glad I got a stinky cold. making me less fancy smoking more than ever!!

Not had craves today, thats not to say I could smoke a fag and be safe because i couldn't. Just not had any "God i need fag" moments.

nsd_user663_3768 profile image
nsd_user663_3768

Ok so nearly at a week, but I fear my plans will scuppered. got friends coming over for a drink. they smoke.

Must be strong.

Was hoping to go without booze for a week or so.

Never mind at least I'm staying in so If I get tempted i can come and blog here.

Try and invite a non smoker too to keep you in line (a tough job I know!!)

Do be careful with the alcohol, its how I've made some of my worst decisions!

Well done on the "nearly" week and keep it up.

Cheers

they smoke....

....Outside, at the coldest wettest time of the year - while you stay in the dry and have another drink/cake/mince pie.

I always find telling people I don't smoke is a great ego boost.... specially when they are freezing and struggling to get a lighter to work in gale force winds!

Not smoking wins from every angle.

nsd_user663_3768 profile image
nsd_user663_3768

Yeh I know. I also know that this is what got me started 8 weeks ago, so need to be double alert.

Think Im at the stage though if I do smoke Id throw up.

nsd_user663_3768 profile image
nsd_user663_3768

OK Ive started drinking, so far so good, not even a crave - how come, thought it would hit as soon as the alcohol touched my lips:D

It's a commonly held beleif that there is some kind of link between smoking and drinking. There isn't, or the fag would get soggy :D

Enjoy the evening.

So how are you today, should I speak quietly!

Did you survive last night, without giving in to the weed?

I do hope so, but you're noticeable by your absence today! Probably just shopping I guess!

Best wishes

Quite true Austin, quite true. :D

I was really meaning what other triggers are there, that she feels she is concerned about facing?

nsd_user663_3768 profile image
nsd_user663_3768

To be honest none. I think having the knowledge that I lasted 5 years, and went through some god awful times without a smoke, kind of gives me strength to face things ahead.

For me drinking prob was the only triggers, wasn't a first thing in the morning or straight after dinner sort of smoker anyway.

austinlegro profile image
austinlegro11 Years Smoke Free

What are you implying?

Me..? I'm simply implying that the list of triggers is long and scary and for some people varies on an hourly basis.

I was answering Nic's question generally not specifically 'cos I switch my ESP off on a Friday so couldn't know anything about YOUR other triggers....

If you wish to share them please feel free... :p

Day 4 BUT

This is day 4 for me however tonight is I decided to do it cold turkey. I was using the patch and I was thinking that I am still getting what I am addicted to (nicotine). I am afraid of the withdrawals now. I am totally committed to quitting. I have been smoking since for 21 years.

Will my withdrawals be terrible for the next 72 hours?

nsd_user663_2863 profile image
nsd_user663_2863

Hi and welcome to the forum,

The withdrawal varies from person to person, but most find it is fairly easy to weather the storm.

Have some strategies worked out to cope with the craves when they come.

There's some good sites to visit for information...lots on here under 'Tips' also.

Drink lots of water...post on here...lots of folks who are going throuigh the same things will help.

You will get through it, and every day not smoking is a good day for you!

Bill:)

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Congratulations on getting to day 4 and making the decision to go nicotine free.

Will my withdrawals be terrible for the next 72 hours?

The toughest part of the addiction to beat is the psychological, so being nicotine free is not going to be masses more difficult than not smoking would be anyway. I'm guessing you have still been craving on the patches so its not just the chemical its the delivery method and body's expectation.

A lot of it will be down to your expectation so if you expect it to be really really tough then it will be.

Have a look at these websites for more info and inspiration.

Moody

I am on Day 2 CT and Day 6 of no smoking and I am really hard to get along with. I don't want to be around people and I don't want to do anything. :D

I am really being aggressive. I really hope it passes soon before I am a divorced non-smoker.

hiya

I think it gets to us all in different ways.

Have a look around for some helpful hints or tips from others, that may make things a bit easier for you - and if not - it will distract you!!

You may find it useful to start your own thread in the day 2 sub forum, generally other members on day 2 will congregate there, and you can share exactly how you are feeling. also its a good point of reference (your own thread) for all members to leave messages of support for you, even if your not logged on.
