Hey there, day 3 lurker

ok so i have come out of lurkdom :) im on day 3 now and today has been a bit bad, flew completely off the handle at hubby and was shouting my mouth of like a banshee....not good when you have a toddler (even though she thought it funny) The remote also got thrown :o

Anyway i have been lurking since yesterday and have had the odd gum to keep me going. I gave up last time for 6 months new years day and started again because i thought that i could just have one, then 2, then 3, then 4, then more!

I have felt so crap over the last 6 months of smoking again, with no energy and feeling lazy, just horrible.

i realy hope tommorow will be ok, i feel like i want a ciggie...well a rollie...and am looking for excuses to have one even though i know im not.....does that make sense??

  • hey maria,

    welcome aboard!

    if you can quit for 6 months you can do it again and you know where the pitt falls are this time,

    good luck! everyone on here will give you loads of support,

    Bman :D

  • a rollie...and am looking for excuses to have one even though I know I'm not.....does that make sense??

    Perfect sense despite all evidence and logic :)

    Good on you for stopping again and coming here. This site is a great support tool to assist you in not smoking.

    I hope the remote survived........... the thought of you stropping due to not smoking and your OH stropping due to loosing his right/left hand is not good ;)

    All the best and let us know how you get on

  • Hello Lurker

    Yep. Three million excuses to have a rollie I am sure, and day 3 is notoriously bad for nicotine withdrawal. Don't let the addiction beat you though, you are stronger than that and it will get easier!

  • thanks :D you wouldnt believe what my tantrum was over.

    Hubby was putting veg oil on the hinges off the kitchen door to try and make it stop squeaking.......he said it wasnt working and i askedhow much he was putting on there.....the reply i got was......do it yourself :eek:just enough of a response for me to over dramatise it because i need a fag :/

    anyway day 4 here we come...ill be back tommorow x

  • thanks :D you wouldn't believe what my tantrum was over.

    lol - oh I really would. Towards the end first week I thought I heard the oven door shut. I was cooking dinner, it was my dinner and I was cooking it... how dare someone open the door, check dinner, stir it, shut the door and then sit down :eek: I mean.... my dinner. No interference allowed. I didn't throw anything.... but the look and the stance said it all.

    I think it was at that point I got some patches..... I needed those nearest and dearest to me to be on my side and figured my tantrums were not their problem. Just so long as they didn't increase my problems ;)

    Stick with it and keep a sense of humour..... it's a massive help :)

    All the best with Day 4

  • That made me chuckle...thanks POL......x

    Ok this is what you need to do get up of the sofa/ bed wherever you are

    on your back 20 crunches please, and if you still want a rollie after that turn over 20 pressups ...now after you finish gasping for breath ask yourself do i want a fag now .... if the answer is no say thank you to your craving for the flat stomach you will start to get each time you crave. If the answer is yes you cheated now start again :) Exercise kills cravings in seconds Maria

  • well i did it did 20 crunches and wasnt out of breath as i would normally be and im off to get some water.......no fags!!!

  • Hi Maria, so glad you decided to give it another go. I once quit for 4 years and started again (what a numpty!)! So, I know how cruddy it makes you feel, and how stupid! Anyway, you're back on track which is fab.

    As to tantrums, bring 'em on I say! I have shouted at my kids for no reason, but I figure that's fair because they have spent the last 15 and 13 years respectively having a go at me for no reason, so I'm just balancing the books! As to the husband, well, he did agree to 'for better for worse', so he's only got himself to blame! Tee hee, I am feeling devlish today!! :p

  • Dee what a great post, I agree entirely with you! Like your style girl! xx
