Day 8 or day 3

I've had a blip - smoked 5 cigs on Saturday night whilst out with friends - was very disappointed with myself on the Sunday. It just wasn't worth it. Felt awful on the Sunday. To make it worse - I've found Sunday and Monday quite difficult - although these were only fleeting moments that passed.

I thought I'd struggle today as I work on a Tuesday and look forward to my fag break - but it was fine (went through alot of lozeneges though).

Hoohum - back on track now but will think twice about social situtions i.e have some sort of action plan in place.

Just to add - those cigs that I smoked - weren't in anyway satisfying, there was no rush of, ' oh a smoke!!'. I can't even remember them - just the disapointment.

Never mind, you are back on track now. I have to say when I quit this time I also gave up my beloved wine for the first two weeks. I had to separate them if you get my drift. Now I can have a couple of drinks and I don't immediately start thinking about having a cig. It just takes a bit to break the habit but you will. Keep up the good work. Cheers from Di.


Hiya Flowers, most people would be on their 4th smokefree day now, some would lie to themselves and pretend the smoking episode never happened, so it's up to you. To my way of thinking you've lost five days of a quit, that's no big deal is it. just try not to put yourself in that situation again. Good for you for making plans to sort it out and keep it up. David.


Hi Flowers :D

Sorry you had a blip and smoked 5 on Sat while out with friends and not meaning to be harsh but I'm pleased you didn't enjoy them and that you felt bad the next day

I agree with David here and you should now be on day 3 but that is your decision to make

Remeber though how you felt on Sunday and how hard you found it for those 2 days after and it won't happen again

Hi Flowers

Well done for getting straight back to your quit....when I had a blip 2 years ago it was just that....2 years before I came back. :eek:

Don't beat yourself up and very proud of getting back off so quickly.

Stay strong.....L x


Much better - but still very tired


After my last Saturday night blip! I don't even feel tempted!

All last week was OK - had the odd moments - but nothing overwhelming.

Feel very tired still though - apetite has gone through the roof - but will work on that after Christmas.:D

Can't say that I've noticed any improvement yet - although OH is still smoking and STINKS - so I guess my sense of smell is returning.
