Moo Blummin Moo!!!!!!!

27 Days later.....

Hmmm, rather interesting journey this in all honesty.

I've done depression, anger, cravings, irritability, constipation, colds, coughs, coped with the passing away of my kitty.... rip!

I've got another bogging cold, a raw throat, and i'm more than a little jacked off with the level of shite feelings that come with this non smoking lark....

There i was expecting to be bouncing gaily through life, being ummm yes, healthier, not susceptible to as many colds, as thats what they say.... well it doesn't appear to be happening.

What appears to be occuring is that i'm single handedly keeping the manufacturers of Ibruprofen and lemsip cold and sodding Flu tablets in business.... this is not fun, i don't like it, i've not had a bloody good rant yet and so this can suffice!!!!!!!

When the hell are you meant to be feeling all spritely and healthy then? Hmmm? Not at all impressed. It all stinks of shite quite frankly..... stupid stupid stupid rar rar sodding ranty ranty rant!!!!!

  • Hey Zozie. Console yourself with the fact that it will get better, enough evidence on this forum for those that have been through it all and come out the other side.

    Ranting is good.......just don't give in 'cus you would only have to start alll over again. Thats what I say when I am at a low point anyhow.

  • Hi Zozie :D

    Sorry you're feeling poorly again just now I can only Promise it does indeed get better the further you go

    You continue to rant as much as you like OK [ranting is good for you] just don't smoke

    Love

    Gawd that does sound less than inspiring, true but think of all the things you've gone through on this quit already that you'll never have to face in the future cause you already have.

    1) colds, they are also triggers because when smoking we'd smoke less when ill and once we starting feeling better the craving for nicotine would go back to normal levels.

    2) sprightly and healthy, is also about testing out your body to see if it's doing any better. Have you taken the old bag of bones for a test drive yet, felt what the changes are you might be pleasantly surprised? I can't imagine you've stopped for a month and your breathing isn't easier - bet it is.

    As to ranting - it's what I do too, I've stopped smoking and at times things are sh*te but that's not just about quitting smoking , that's what we feel under the addiction. Smoking has always masked all our experiences because whenever we felt sadness, joy, love etc etc, we also had the craving for nicotine. Remember what is was like to have no fags, or no lighter, or tobacco and no skins, skins and no tobacco. The anxiety caused by running out of nicotine - you don't need to fret about that anymore because you don't smoke.

  • Zozie,,,,LOL

    Yip thats stopping smoking for you. We all try to be so nice and positive all the time but you are right it SUCKS....

    It MUST get better, it WILL get better.....

    What keeps me going is knowing how much HELL it is if I gave in now I would only have to put myself through all this again....

    Big Hug and thanks for the honesty

    :D

  • Well done on 27 days, brilliant. As you have gone through all that crap I sincerely hope it is all better and happier from here, it will be soon.

    Best wishes.

  • Hey Zozie, it is hard at times, and sometimes I do feel very blah. Not shiny and bouncy at all! But, other times I really do feel so much better, so maybe these are just the normal ups and downs of life? Just without (as some others have said above) the nicoltine addiction masking real feelings? I dunno, but it does make some kind of sense.

    You're doing so well, stay srong XX

  • I just want you to know that I printed this post and read all the time. It is a timeless classic. Like Stairway to Heaven.

    If will help I am quite willing to take the blame for the tough spot you are going through. Just feel free to unleash on me any time you feel the need.

    Just know you have cut your freaking arm off and you need to learn to live without it.

  • Zozie! are ya feeling any better today?

    I hope so hun :D

  • Hey Hey!
