Day 13 Unlucky for some?

Well ive arrived at Day 13, its been a lot easier, than I thought TBH, but I prepared myself, by thinking this was going to be the hardest thing ive ever done!

Being a recovering alcoholic, and dry for over 15 months, is a LOT harder IMHO though, so crushing the fag habit seems relativly easy, as you dont really suffer the sweats, shakes, sickness, nausea, diaorreah, severe mood swings, involved with removing alcohol from your system!.

Hardest time, however, was this morning, as im trying to get my share of the equity from my house, after an evil divorce, and I always "need" a smoke when im on the phone to the solicitors, but strong tea to the rescue again!

I wonder if there is such a thing as a teaoholic?

Hope anyone who has read this, is still going strong!

Its not as hard as you make it!!

  • Well done Mate I think your a total star.xxxxxx

  • Well done mate, I'm still with you:D

    I had a strange one this morning - there was just a smell on the wind that took me back 25 years to sneaking up an alley, over a wall, behind a house - or wherever for a quick smoke before assembly:eek: Ahh to be 15 again, only thing I'd change would be never to touch a fag.
