What a horrid couple of days

Hi All,

Not been on for a few days. Went to brother in-laws funeral Wednesday, and it was not nice there was a frosty feel between the family's long story so wont go in to it.

I have struggled for a couple of days the urge to smoke has been great :( I nearly caved in a couple of times, I had this debate in my head and the sensible me won phew :) I had to get it into my head that having a fag was not going to make me feel any happier. I was still going to feel like sh*t but still I kept thinking about smoking I then came on this forum and started reading posts which helped.

I have not smoked and the urges have gone I think when you are down, it's urges more than craving. I read on here that magnesium helps to calm you and helps your moods. I went and got some and started taking them yesterday will let you know how I go with them.

My mood is better this morning I noticed on my calender

that I have got to 15 weeks today :) next week it will be smoke free for 4 months :cool:

I now am going to think positive more bad things might happen in the future I will not use them as an excuse to smoke, because that is all it will be. I want to stop smoking for good this time, this is the longest quite I've had and I want it to be the last.

    Hi Dolly. I am sorry you are going through such a stressfull, sad time at the moment. Good for you for being so strong and getting through it without reaching for the ciggies. We all know that they won't make a jot of difference but I guess it will take a long time to get over the fact that probably for years for many of us the first thing we would do in any bad situation is light up. YOU didn't though & I am so proud of you.

    Let us know how the magnesium goes. I read about it on hear but must admit I have not heard of that before.

    Keep strong. Love. Gaynor xx

  • Oh well done dolly, I feel so silly and humbled now. I had a bad day yesterday but for no reason, just one of those days and all I did was moan and moan, drove myself mad with all the moaning and feeling sorry for myself attitude I had....... you had a valid reason and didn't give in, well done.

  • Hi Marg and Kate, moog

    Thanks for your kind words this forum is a savour so glad I found it when I did. Big hugs to you all x




  • Well done Dolly 15 weeks is brilliant. You have had a very stressful time and I think when we get through our stress and haven't smoked it makes us feel happy and a bit more secure that we really have stopped.

    Have a happy day.


  • Well done Dolly you have done amazing. You have made me realise that no matter what life throws at us it is possible to deal with it all without the cigs.

    Biggest hugs xxxxxx
