Back again

Hy all well i,m back again...... Unfortunately i stumbled on day 7 and i thought i was doing so well. I am about to smoke my last cig an tomorrow will be a fresh start....... I dont even know why i did it as i was just beggining to feel the benefits! I,m so annoyed with myself as i,m not even enjoying it and i, m actually pulling a face when i have one.....:( But what upset me more was my daughter getting upset and telling me she dos,nt want me smoking as she dos,nt want me to die (the latest tv ads have alot to answer for)...... So here go,s to my healthier future and a happier daughter........

  • Hi LilBear :)

    Wondered where you had got to so sorry to hear you had a slip you were doing so well but I can only imagine how mad you were with yourself and upset about your daughter

    You will have learned a valuable lesson from this so now

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself down and carry on

    Not to be nasty but I am so glad you didn't enjoy it

    Love

  • Hi Lilbear,

    Heres another thought for you. My Children moaned at me for years, and were desparate for me to stop. I tried and failed. When they got a bit older they hated the smell and said they didnt want me to die. Heartbreaking. I tried to stop again and failed. Although somewhere in there I did have 8 yrs ciggy free!

    My eldest Daughter is now 16, and I discovered a few months ago that she was smoking. I was devastated. Hence the cutting down and eventual quit last month.

    I am now trying to get her to stop!

    Please dont leave it too late x

  • We can learn alot from the kids can't we??;)

  • No.... so here it goes..... to you..... a healthier future and a happier you......

    I am so sorry you stumbled...... pick yourself up quickly and you will be okay.... otherwise you'll be back to day 1 and that won't be so fun, will it?! You have to really want it...... otherwise it is just too damn hard.... and yes, I know what I am talking about... if you just say 'heck... it is not going to be easy for a few weeks and I will be challenged....' then those few weeks will pass and you will end up being a happy non smoker. You have to somehow want it though..... otherwise it will be a feeling of 'being deprived' and personally, I NEVER lasted longer than 24 hours with that feeling.... wish you the very best of luck..... and don't beat yourself up..... EVERY fail is a learning experience.... necessary for THE successful quit. You keep going!

And bluedog i hope your successful when it comes to your daughter i got a friend at work going threw the same thing and i,d hate to think of my daughter becoming a smoker..... :(

  • Hey LilBear,

    Likewise I was sorry to read you had blipped as you were so positive at the start, and trying to drag EBG along in your wake showed that you are real good person to have around. I think we on this forum could do with somebody just like you here - only thing is YOU GOTTA STAY OFF THE CIGS!

    Best wishes with your quit....and post when you need to.

  • Hi LilBear,

    Glad you have come back,you can do it this time.

  • Hey Lilbear, you will have learned a lot in those 7 days that you stopped smoking and that can help you with this quit. I personally think that its best to work to mini goals, as it can be hard to visualise never smoking again for the rest of your life and so can be hard to achieve. Plus if you treat yourself at these mini goals, i.e 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month then you really have a sense of achievement. The longer you go the less it becomes part of your daily routine.

    And you were asking whether to go cold turkey or use patches. I've never used patches but feel that the fruit nicotine gum 2mg is really helpful as you can pop some in when you have a craving. I also use the inhalators (very rarely) when I have a drink as gum and drinking doesn't really mix. I've been stopped 6 weeks on Saturday and don't bother with the nrt as much now, but take it out with me just in case for the time being. If you can stop without thats great but I think it can be good to give yourself a hand, especially in the beginning.

    Anyway Good Luck!
