Day 1, week 2, 2nd weekend

Today is day 9 and its my second weekend. I dont really feel any more confident about this weekend than i did on day 2. I think i will have leave the house work and maybe concentrate on going for some nice walks to distract me. I seem to feel so much more vulnerable at home than i do at work.

I seem to having more and more thoughts about having a dreaded cig. I hope i wont and i fell like i wont have one so i just need to try to keep myself out of any dodgey situations.

I know it will be all worth it but it is a struggle. I do think this attemp will be the one for me when i do quit for good. After serveral failed attempts the one thing i now know is if i have just one cig i will be smoking again. so at no time can i think i can just have one and carry on quitting as that wont work for me.

Hows everyone else doing this fine smokeless morning?

  • Good morning Jane

    Feel all grwon up in week 2...:) haven't we done well.

    I agree about more thoughts about cigs. I wouldn't say they were exactly cravings but more "I'll have a cig" moments. Very starange. I am putting it down to the habit because the times I am getting these thoughts are the times when I would have normally had a cig.

    This is my scary day.:( Two yeras ago I went cold turkey and managed to day 9. I posted at lunch time on day 9 that my cravings were really bad but I was determined not to give in...and two hours later I had "just the one". :rolleyes:Two yeras later I am back. I feel if I can get through today I will have crossed a major hurdle.

    Hope you have a good weekend. The weather looks good so it's a great day for a walk and the housework will always still be there on Monday.

    Love Lorna xx

  • Just thought i would pop over to week 2 forum to says well done flipper. Gonna be joining ya on here in a couple of days

  • Well done Filpper and Lorna, you are doing just great. You will think about cigarettes a bit at this time as you were around them every day, many times a day and for many years. You will also get used to situations when you would normally smoke being smoke-free. It will get better, I promise.

  • Cheers everyone and well done caroline , 1 month, wow!!!!!!!!!I just hope we can all make it there and beyond.

    Trippy cant wait till ya move in with us. ha ha

    Why did we ever smoke in the first place and then we wouldnt be going through all this now, we must be mad to ever consider having another one and having to do all this again.

    catch you all later.

  • Hi Jane

    Made it to day 10 :D....feel really good to be over day 9 and now offically on my longest quit. Still feeling surprisingly good, hope you are too...

    I really am sure that this is my final quit, I just cannot imagine going back now. I even managed quite a bit of wine last night and did not miss the cigs...

    Onwards and upward....

    I found my week-end hard going with the cravings. My husband was at work this week-end so I tend to get up early cup of coffee and chain smoke in the kitchen (with the door open) before going to the gym(!!) and this week-end I found it hell. I had to get out of the house at 8am!! However I think it will get easier we just need to change our routine.

    My trigger is the kitchen or the garden which is where I smoked so I tend not to just stand in the kitchen or garden, I do what I have to do in there and get out!! As I never smoked in the rest of the house I find the cravings less (if that makes sense). Change your old smoking routine and see if that helps.

    You are doing really well, don’t let me down now remember we are in for the long haul together:D
