Back Again

Hi all,

here I am back again. I'm on the first day of week 4 now and am conscious that my two attempts last year both failed at 3 weeks and 4 days, so thought I'd pop back in and see if I can get some support to get past that psychological barrier.

I can honestly say that this time I'm not missing smoking, have absolutely no desire to smoke at all, and am even disgusted at the thought of it! So it's all good so far!

Anyway, like I said, I've stumbled around this point of my quit twice before and I have no intention of doing that this time. This quit was planned for at least 2 months before my quit date and so I think the preparation time got my head in the right place.

I can't say I've noticed any real changes this time. The last 2 times I had a massive surge of energy after only a few days, but this time I'm more tired than usual. I have had that horrible cold for the last 4 weeks though, and work is totally hectic, so that could all be masking the benefits I'm getting from not smoking.

Here's to a smoke free life :D

Well done on 4 weeks, I agree with Jim forget the past barrier just keep looking ahead and you know you are always welcome on here to rant, rave and generally look for support.

All the best Dave you know you can do this.

Welcome back and well done!!

Regarding the previous failures, don't let them dwell heavily but equally you know when they happened so you can be sure to be mentally prepared for them this time, if similar feelings materialise!!

All the best and keep posting.

Dont matter how many times it takes you to get there the point is you are still trying and not giving in:)

You should be proud of that fact hun, you know where you went wrong before and wont let that happen again.
