week 2 day 10 new me (again)

day ten just started and this (ex)hopeless case cant believe it-

i feel gud- i feel confident- i'm not smokn today- i will be vigilant-

i think that because i understand a bit more about nicotine addiction i am better able to overcome it within myself-i know ther are parts of my brain that want to lead me astray-they'r always gona be ther dudes-

do i want to smoke again? am i happy bein like th old me? we grow up many times in life-altho we'r no different really we do understand ourselves a bit better and wer we fit into th world around us-

do i want to have more energy? do i want to do more things? do i want to reread fav books somewer way in the future?

i do-the answer's yes to all th gud stuff and no to the bad-

i'm not waitn to improve my life-i'm doin it now dudes-and if this hopeless case can do it so can every hopeless case:eek:

  • Great job, John!!! 10 days.... almost full 2 weeks.... glad you sound so well! Knowing as much as possible about nicotine addiction helps in the long run..... keep reading up on it.... my mind personally likes to forget and I need to refresh at times so that feeling of 'I miss them' gets shot right back down. Great going you!!

    Well done on getting to double figures mate.

    You are 100% correct. Understanding the addiction makes everything fall into place, leads you to despise it and helps you to accept that by quitting you are not depriving yourself.

    Great work.

  • well done john! keep on trucking!

  • Addiction is a massive problem for me, I quit drugs 5 years ago through the 12 step programme and been clean ever since. I am now on day 13 without a cigarette and I feel great, food tastes nice again, I can take deep breaths no problem and I have a few quid in my pocket. I genuinly believe that smoking and nicotine is the most addictive substance on the planet. I have tried cold turkey and lasted 3 days. I have tried NRT no luck. I am now on champix and it is a total revelation to me, I perhaps crave once a day for about 5 secs then it goes amazing, when i went CT I constantly thought about cigarettes, jeesh I even dreamt about them, with the champix that went away on about my 4th day and it gets easier every day. For all those struggling keep coming back to these pages they are an inspiration, support is the key to kicking this...

    thanks dudes-its a dopamine rush to get ur support-and ther aint no drugs involved with that:D

    bossdean-been ther too-i'm not as long out but each day at a time dude-lets both not 4get that-

    joel spitzer's book "never take another puff" from th whyquit.com sight is good for understandin why our brains want lots of things-

    thanks dudes-ur support butters my toast:eek:

    :p:p

  • Hi Liz,

    I didn't get involved in champix. Marg may know. But I would say that from what I can understand, you still need the mental preparation and understanding to quit on champix. xx

  • Yes fiona your are completely right, you need to be mentally prepared with champix to stop smoking and will power is a must. I totally understand that different people have different methods for stopping smoking I tried everything apart from hpyno therapy, it just worked out that champix seems to be working for me..

  • Hi Bossdean :D

    Well done on 13 days quit I also used champix and it worked just fine for me to

    Hi Liz :D

    Sorry the Champix isn't working to well for you,but even with it you still need willpower and the right frame of mind

    Maybe it doesn't suit you for some reason, I don't suppose it suits everyone if you continue to have problems with it go back to your Dr/Nurse they may be able to give you something else

    Best wishes to you both

    Marg xxxxxxx
