Ebt girl will not smoke tomorrow

One day at a time, I will not smoke tomorrow.

I thought my head was in a better space, then i developed a bad case of nuralgia and the pain almost drove me insane and back to square one with the fags :mad:

But now shes back and she is strong and she will not smoke tomorrow, or the day after or the day after that.... but it will be one day at a time. I know I can do this and its encouraging to see so many of you doing well. BIG UP TO MY QUIT BUDDIES !!! I told you I would be back for the quit during the month of APRIL and that starts tomorrow.

If i can suffer the pain of nuralgia, withdrawal will be a breeze.

IM BEING STRONG LIKE THE ENGLISH BULL TERRIER

  • Welcome back girlie..... sorry you had to deal with the pain stuff! You will at some point have to not use excuses to smoke though..... don't want to sound mean or anything BUT a nonsmoker doesn't smoke when things get tough. I know you can do this.... your determination is great but don't let things get in the way again..... you are just torturing yourself by doing this over and over AND I do believe everytime you give in, your personal little nicodemon becomes just a little stronger as you feel you can not deal with issues without a smoke.... the point is you can..... you need to get a few weeks on your back not smoking and you will see the temptation will lessen. Maybe read up more on the sites everyone suggests..... something may not have clicked yet? Well enough with the advice you didn't ask for :D...... glad you are back :D

  • hi EBT,well come back again,,like bellablue 13 said,,you will have to make up your mind if you want to be a non smoker or a smoker,,simple,,we all have faith in you so give it your best shot,EBT go for it ,,just keep the faith and keep :D:D:D tony

  • I agree with the other 2 hunny x Life will never stop throwing sh!t at you... but you are strong enough to say " you know what, a fag aint gonna help this situation " and keep to it ;)

    Best of luck xx

  • Brilliant ... ;)

    For God sake either quit smokin or quit saying you are gonna stop !

    And for the record its called Neuralgia .. but you would know that already wouldnt you ?

    How many minutes have you gone now without a fag ? Lol

  • EBT you always seem to have an excuse to start smoking again. :(

    I don't mean to be rude but you really have to WANT to stop, if you don't WANT to stop nothing will work for you.

    Something has not clicked with EBT girl.... and that is not a problem. Something will click with her soon and we want to help her NOT insult her, Gaz.

    EBT girl.... I KNOW you will be a nonsmoker.... anyone who wants something this badly will get there...... so you hang in there and try to learn about your addiction, come up with a plan and stick with it.... it won't be fun for a little while but it will be easy quicker than you think. Hugs to you :)

  • Hi E B T Girl

    Welcome back again and I really hope you make it this time but,

    While we have faith in you, YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF and I don't think you have that yet for whatever reason

    You've been here off and on for long enough to know that whatever the matter is smoking will NOT HELP one little bit

    One other thing do an awful lot of reading you know it will help

    Love

    I don't mean to be rude but you really have to WANT to stop, if you don't WANT to stop nothing will work for you.

    I agree with you totally Mal_Mac. EBT Girl.... there is nothing that is worth smoking for if you truly want to quit, nothing.

    I quit through a house move (at 1 week) and torn ligaments (at 7 weeks) that stopped me walking for weeks - and was incredibly painful, my Mum quit while recovering from brain surgery and others on here have quit while losing loved ones and all kinds of serious family or personal problems.

    I also don't wish to be too tough on you, but there is no good reason to go back. If you want to quit, quit. There is no such thing as trying to quit, you either quit or you don't. Neuralgia won't kill you, smoking will. I know it's painful, but can you tell me exactly how smoking helped? It didn't, did it? It was just an excuse to start again.

    This is your time, no going back. For any excuse. (Notice I used the word "excuse", not "reason".... there is no reason to relapse, only excuses)

    Do or do not. There is no try

  • Glad to see you back, you can do it this time :)

  • Hi EBTG, I don't know if you've tried NRT before, I haven't seen you posting about it, maybe you should give that a go. It seems to me that you're having a real hard time with the cravings, the NRT could help take the ebb away a little. Good luck hun I know you really want to quit.

  • Hi EBTGirl,

    I am glad to see you are still trying I really do hope succeed this time;)

  • Hey guys, ive only just noticed i wrote this on here last night, sorry if you think i was being offensive or insulting it really wasnt meant to sound that way, i have a habit on forums of dropping myself in the doodoo when ive had a pint or two, me and my sense of humour :mad:

    EBT Girl i really hope you do stop smoking mate, dont take offence girl, just having a laugh.

    How about this,a friend of mine bought me a sleeve of tobacco today from Spain so im looking at 10 x 40mg of Turner ... now that is a temptation !

    I forgot to tell him i stopped a month ago :cool:

    But 1 month ago today i stopped smoking and that is the way its staying and as you would say i will be keeping it strong like the EBT ;)

    I made my mind up to stop smoking and i did ... i think you should and could do the same if you wanted to, just focus your mind and go for it, either way i wish you luck and health ;)

    Gaz.

  • Hi EBT

    I would go for NRT it does help alot. Try using the inhaler...Its great if you miss the hand to mouth action aswell which i do...Plus they are cheep i only use one nicotine tube a day...Sometimes 1 in two days.I dont use mine to much but its good to have as back up and like Gaz122 said ---->one thing i like about the inhaler, being able to choose your intake as and when required.
