No Smoking Day

Mondays - Boooo!!!

Hi All

Day 4 and all is is well, however I did find today particularly hard today. Back at work to face the stresses of running a job on a cold building site with out the hint of a ciggie!

Could have murdered the guy stood near the door smoking his head off all day and all his nasty smoke blowing in - discusting habbit - oh my, I'm starting to sound like a true ex smoker :cool:

On a serious note, smoking was on my mind for the majority of the day but being able to say 4 days smoke free feels good. I have a confesion though, I got a little cranky when I got home :mad: I soon realised the rerror of my ways, apologised and all was forgiven and well again :o

Yeah I can relate to the "cranky at home bit". Seem to be doing a fair bit of saying sorry myself, think fortunately those who are close understand, to a certain degree, and realise its for the greater good:o


Hi Paul

Well done getting through a difficult day, guarantee next time it wont be quite as bad as today. You are doing so well hun, keep it up. And as for grumps well i think we are/have been like that when you are fighting the cravings.

You are doing great hun stick with it :) There is a light at the end of the tunnel.




Oh well done on getting through today. Once you know you can do it, it will get easier. For me, it's the weekends that I find the hardest cos I've never smoked at work so I don't miss it during the week. Now I've done 2 weekends, I feel much more confident.

You will feel the same, I am sure, when you have done a few days at work - remember that breaking a habit DOES take time but it will break if you GIVE it time!!

Stick with it Paul - you are strong enough.


Cheers peeps,

Feelings are I will find it slightly easier tomorrow. Unfortunately I am only running the installation of the security installation (cctv) not the entire job otherwise the guy smoking at the door would have been drop kicked. I do see this in a positive light though as even though being able to smell the smoke, it annoyed me apposed to tempted me - an achievement me thinks!


hi paul,,you are doing great,,each day will get better you will see,,we all get cranky at times,,i like jims dummy cctv:D that should stop them smoking if they know big brother is watching them ,you just keep the faith tony


Fishty - you got any dummy CCTV cameras ? - If so, get one of your lads to put one above the door - or covering the door area - tell your smoking friend that management want it to do a time and motion study on all their smokers - and so he'd be better off smoking <wherever> where there are no cameras.

That'll sort him.

Now that's a great idea :)

That's definitely a good thing, Paul, being annoyed instead of tempted. You're making progress already :) Keep it up, man.


Yeah might just try the dummy camera - we are never popular putting camera's up. Everyone always thinks they are being spied on (to be honest they probably are)!
