6weeks + 1day or 43 days

well i am still unhappy, i havent smoked but on the very verge of , everything & everybody is making me miserable...I thought my mood had lifted...well apart from having a lovely anoon at the local playgroup with the kids in the sunshine & other mums n kids - My mood just continued to drop like going down a slide....Im just fed up of people around me being down yes my OH when im trying so flipping hard to keep my spirits up & finding it impossible at times...I felt like ripping my patch right off before & racing to the shop in a big strop...but i suppose that would be giving me a good reason to smoke & blaming someone else in the process

so i am still on the quit, i need to start from the beginning & give myself the fresh optimism which comes with the beginning of a quit.. i feel so low cant even be bothered to do that eg write down why i want to quit etc etc

well lets just say it is a temporary feeling because im still not smoking so i should be thankful xxxx

    Hi KitKat,

    I am sorry you are feeling so down. I know where you are & know it is so hard to get through. I also know if you succumb to a fag It is far far harder to get back on track as that is where I am now. PLEASE do all you can to to go get through this, sleep through it if you can, whatever you need to do. Having fallen from my quit I am finding it so HARD to get back on & with hind sight obviously wish I had done this, that & the other.

    Don't make my mistake hun. It WILL get better.

    Love Gaynir xxx

  • OMG me and you both. i have just finished packing, i fly to Kos at 7am, so i should be happy :D however i am tempted to pretend that my leg is broken so i don't have to go, want to sit in dark room and cry:(

    anyway, i too have not smoked so that is a sucess:)

    i think we just have to put up with it and so do the OH's ;)

    have you tried dancing and just being silly, singing your fav song v loud, seeing how much chocolate u can get in ur mouth at once

    me and u till the end, here r my PV's for u and with it goes a huge ((((((((()))))))))).

  • hi gaynor, great to hear you again.. i promise i will keep trying so long as i know its only temporary i will continue. Thank you for that gaynor made me kind of feel i know youre right from my longest previous quit attempt. The thought of it is much more i suppose because doing it would take what approximately 5-20minutes to achieve(depending where nearest shop is or smoking friend)

    bevyorks yes my mate we in this together now, if you smoke i smoke...

    have a lovely holiday im sure youll feel great once away prob holiday stress beforehand(especially going abroad with all youre kids, we going wales on sunday in a caravan not very exotic but a break!! ha ha you better not fake breaking, youre seriously not considering that are you? well dont youll get a lovely tan, have a lovely rest(well not rest with kids but a break) & come back feeling fab...i on the otherhand will probably come back wet lol(if british weather makes a change)

    yes tried all the dancing around, eating choc& sweets till ive felt sick. singing with the kids etc it is a mood lifter for a time.. but gets a bit boring sometimes (boo im sorry nothing is makeing me smile today, just trying my god damn hardest too)

  • ok i have my toothbrush, but the rest of the suitcase looks fairly empty anything else u think i should take?

    ok so u and me, u r so far ahead i can barely see u. i am only on day 18 but of course i would love to be ur quitting buddy. by Friday (my day 21) it will be my longest quit, so at the mo i am aiming for that.

    have u bought anything with all u savings?

    do u have a Wii? (i know i could look back at all ur posts but i can't be ars**)

    i am drinking wine and i have to be out of bed at 3am how mad am i? ok u don't have to answer that.

  • aww didnt realise you where so far behind me but still a good 18 days which is great.....maybe i can pull you along sometimes & you can give me a great big shove sometimes lol

    suitcase empty yikes, toothbrushes be fine & passports lol sorry im only jokeing dont be mad

    With money huh not really noticed it hugely just been on this & that but i bought a sewing machine ha ha ha , ive never made anything before (oh a skirt at school a long time ago) well ive made some curtains & cushion covers.. im turning into an old woman at 36 lol

  • night night and sweet dreams.

    (oh i am sure he/she is listening)

    I WOULD LOVE A NEW TUMMY, OR BOTOX, OR LIPOSUCTION :D

  • Things do get better. Just takes a while to realise it, and when you finally do, you wonder why you worried in the first place.

    I've had my metal truly tested tonight too, i'm tired to the point of falling asleep standing up and with it has brougth a drop in my guard, I've had to really keep a focus hard tonight as my minds been wandering a bit.. can't wait for bed.. hmm.. i should do that sleep now.. its nearly 1am.

  • Hi KitKat :D
