didnt think i would make it this far


when i gave up on this attempt it was a 'on the day desision', there was no preperation and to tell you the truth there was not much confidence in myself. it was like any other attempt ( destined to fail )no hope just a lie to myself to make myself feel as though im doing something positive in my life. like always the 1 thing which grabs me at the start of my quits is that scary feeling, never to have another toke :eek:. 32 days later and iv done the impossible, overcome all doubt, full confidence and a desire to stay were i am, amazingly i think about them a few times a day when im bored or have nothing else to do but think, what a accomplishment. im showing off a bit but i think thats ok because obviosly all you fine people have crossed the 1 month mark, and must be feeling amazing about your selv's. i would like to know other peoples feelings at this point in time, about there confidense and how they feel about themselfs, i just hope im not getting to ahead of myself.

Hi Hun

Firstly well done on getting to day 32, that is a great achievement.

When i set out on this quit i never really thought that i would be able to get through 1 day let alone 1 month, i had wrongly perceived it as being to hard for me to do....and as each day went past i got more confident in my quit and thought that maybe i could do it after all.

Now at almost 7 weeks and finding each day an effort to get through but i am determind never to smoke again. I said to a friend to day its very strange the feelings i have at the moment because i would really love to have a smoke but i know i never will and i wont...still miss them though but not prepared to pay to poison my body no more.

Keep it up hun, i bet you are so proud of yourself as i am.




What Denise66 says, 32 days IS an achievement. And, you gotta show off that accomplishment. Every anniversary - 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 50 days, 100 days, each successive month and then 1 year, believe me everybody in my office knew it :D

TBH I really had the shittiest time and at 1 month I was feeling really carp. That was the extent of it up to approx 3 1/2 months. I always knew this was going to be my final quit attempt and it was going to succeed. Thought that it was just 'cos I was adamant.

Eventually after educating myself and making sense of it in my head it became easier and easier. Still had those trigger points: being on holiday and you're allowed to treat yourself....nope not that kind of treat - sheesh, having the flu and feeling exceedingly sorry for myself. But, realising what they were helped to get me past.

You too will get past these issues.

Keep on keepin' on :)
