Day 21

hi all

what a week this has been, everyone seems to be struggling and I have been reading the posts. I just have to say well done everyone for hanging in there.

I nearly lost it last night when I had to go for a walk to clear my head of the nic demons, crying and walking round in the wind like some kind of banshee! I purposly didnt take my bank card or any money with me so couldnt go to the shop but oh I was really so tempted.

Im looking forward to getting to the end of this bumpy bit of the road, but I have to say I woke up this morning and felt proud of myself for not giving in. Not too proud of being a grumpy old sour puss though. :)

Hi Sam :D :D

Good Morming

You have everyright to be proud of yourself not only for not giving in last night but also for 3 Whole weeks quit you're doing really well

Doesn't matter if you're a grumpy old sourpuss it only matters that you stay quit and you're doing that

Chin up, it can only get better for you sending a big hug your way onwards and upwards




Hi Moog - can you believe it, we are on day 21 - 3 whole weeks, I am so pleased to be here, never thought I could do this, and I have to say if I look at the last 3 weeks objectively it has been far easier than I ever thought it would be when I was smoking. I'm not saying its easy by any stretch of the imagination, but it hasnt been the living hell day in day out that I had expected. I am waiting for all the benefits to kick in tho, cos at the moment I wake up with the most awful mouth - far worse than when I was smoking, if I didnt know better I would say something had died in there it is so awful, and my sense of smell and taste hasnt improved either. I read on here that people are realising how bad smokers smell, well I work with a smoker and I cannot smell a thing on her!!!

But these little things are only niggles, nothing will detract from the fact that we are 3 weeks smoke free!!!!!!!!!

Well done Moog and everyone else who is taking this journey, thanks also to all the other quitters on this forum for their patience, advice and understanding - here we go into week 4!!
