Things are looking up!

after abit of an angry, depressed, argumentative rubbish time things are starting to look up. I can and have changed my thoughts on being a non smoker. I dont have to snap at the slightest thing and then blame it on not smoking. I spoke to a friend who I havent seen for ages who stopped smoking about 2 years ago who assured me it does get better, but I have to stop feeling so sorry for myself! I know everyone is so chuffed I have quit, they dont need to keep telling me, cos they dont want to remind me and they are being so supportive. I just need to understand how im feeling and then deal with it, not dwell on negative thoughts and just be glad that Im finally (after all these years) becoming free from nicotine. I havent really experienced being a non smoking adult and I have to say its much better than being a smelly smoking one!!

sorry its abit of a garbled post but just had to write and get it out

    Glad to hear it, if you stop thinking it's the hardest thing in the world.... it's surprisingly easy, isn't it?

    Good for you, well done!

  • BB - what a really nice post! Truly.... very thoughtful BUT just noted your signature there.... Women Are People Too - Whatever evidence they may present to the contrary???????? :rolleyes:

  • Surely a bloke recognising that women are people too is also evidence of sensitivity?

    Or am I getting it all wrong?

    Can a man ever be wrong?? :rolleyes:

    Sorry moog.... got distracted with BB for a sec :D You are on the right path!! Nice switching around those thoughts..... it's what's going to keep you a non-smoker!! Great job! You have to play with those positive thoughts in your head.... it takes a little for them to take root but when they do, quitting becomes easy!

  • thanks guys, its so much better coming on here than trying to do this alone! the forum should just replace the stop smoking service, probably has more success!! happy bank holiday xxx

  • Hi Sam :D

    I'm so pleased that thing's are looking up for you at last and now that you're thinking straight things will be much easier for you well done

    Love Margxxxxxxxx

  • Snap ha ha Me too

    Hi Moog,

    Congratulations on your quit, doing great, am 2 days behind you, and have felt the same u have recently, very strange, as I thought at this stage would be better.... I think its because u get to a stage in your quit when u feel You have quit and maybe u could "just have one" but No we cant....

    Also hear alot about the terrible 3s and we are still in month 3, so couple more weeks and should be fine.... Hang in there then, but glad funny enough its not just me..... Like u say though and good to hear, u are feeling better now......Keep up the fantastic work:) Kaz x :p
