No Smoking Day

Hopefully my last day 1

Right, this time I have a plan.

So far, every time I fail I try to learn something about why I have failed. As I mentioned in my previous post, I get very obsessive about it and do nothing else but think about quitting. I have decided that I should try to stop doing this and occupy myself in other ways even if I have to force myself.

HERE'S THE PLAN.

1. I have borrowed a friends dog for tomorrow and we are going for long walks together.

2. My daughter's back to school tomorrow and I have written myself a time table of what jobs I MUST do.

3. I have stocked up on kiwi fruits, passion fruits and oranges 'cos I've heard that vit C speeds up the rate that the body can cleanse itself of nicotine.

4. I have planned a fun afternoon at the river with my grandson (he's 3)

And then there's gardening and a sewing project that needs doing.

5. I am only allowing myself two visits to this forum for about 1/2 hour each sitting, one in the morning and one later on in the evening. I have made this final restriction on myself to see if it will help me to stop obsessing about it.

Sounds like a good plan to me, fingers crossed x

Hi hopeful, just catching up wiv posts and i totaly admire you, you are a true fighter and you will succeed, depression is a tough battle and has links to stopping smoking, seeing your doctor is a good idea, and your plan sounds like a good one.

I think we all can become obsessive when we quit smoking and getting on with normal routines are difficult, but your plan seems like a great way to tackle all of it and i might make a similar one myself.

keep strong and keep fighting, you are doing a great job dealing with everything and your daughter will be proud of you, it sounds like you have a very good relationship with her and thats something to be very proud of.

take care and a big hug is sent to you, x

half way through day 1 SO FAR, SO GOOD.

Thanks to you all for your kind responses. Large bowls of porrige coming up, followed by lemon juice!

I had intended to do CT today but it was getting really tough and I was very tempted to take to dog for a walk to the newsagents!!!!!! Had a gum and off we went, the dog and I for a great walk and went nowhere near any shops.

Have to keep reminding myself that it's hour by hour if necessary. So far I've stuck to my plan and also I've read that it's important to eat sensibly, so I've been trying not to let myself get hungry in the hope that I wont get so terribly tired that way.

I'll keep the gum to the very minimum today and for a couple of days, then I'll try ct again.

Hope everyone else is ok and doing well

Hi Hopeful,

Hope the rest of Day 1 goes well for you. Having a plan is a great idea. Whatever works for you. And yes, hour by hour. Even minute by minute if necessary. And those hours and minutes will build up and make you stronger. :D
