Day three, some honest truths!

Day 3 is upon me and I have discovered something today, that I didnt discover when I last quit. We all know emotions run a little higher, I certainly feel more emotional. I am never one to argue, have always been a peace keeper really, and it was only today, after a very slight disagreement with my hubby, that I found myself very emotional. Took me by surprise, but then thinking about it I realised, that I would normally stay very calm, then pop outside for a cigarette. What happened today was that I didn't do the popping out, couple of minutes of calming myself, didn't have an excuse to walk away! So had to deal with the emotion full on. Had never noticed how I used smoking in that way, was quite a shock and a bit panicky for a while.

Anyway, I had a few silent tears, deep breaths, and enjoyed the rest of the day. Watched a film with the family, they've all gone to bed now and i've noticed hubby hasn't had a cigarette, he's gone straight to bed!? I'm having a glass of wine and a quick chat to you guys before I turn in.

Be strong everyone, and well done.

Cheers.

  • there is no reason in the world why you should not go outside in the yard for a quick breath of fresh air when the moodies hit though... it worked for me.. i used to always step outside for a smoke, when what really worked the most was stepping outside. the smoke was just something to do while i was out there. Make a hot cuppa and step outside for a breather.. it won't harm you one bit and the cool air may help at the moment anyway.

    keep going, there is always hope for one who tries.

    Yes there is!!! it's too bl**dy cold. Do go out if you feel it helps we all know how much we thought we needed to smoke and smoking was the answer to everything.

    I think your going to crack it.

    Lozza your doing great I have become very emotional at times and I'm a guy, I think.

  • I was the same Lozza around day 3/4, feeling very emotional over the slightest of things and it is very unnerving, but I must say I am ok now. It's certain little things that you could never imagine stopping smoking would cause. By what I have read on this forum being emotional is very common on giving up.

    Well done on your progress and overcoming what you have.

  • Hi Lozza.

    I feel the same as you. A bit tearful over the slightest thing, and a bit stroppy.

    Last week hubby wasn't well and with me stroppy can you image what my household was like?!!!:eek:

    It's the time of year also. Christmas over, weather lousy, dark mornings and dark nights.

    Keep going. Things will improve.:)

    Best wishes

  • Hey Lozza!

    I know what you mean regarding popping out for a cigarette when emotions are high, you don't deal with the issues AND then you go outside in the cold to fill your poor little lungs with crap. Now you are a non smoker you confront the issue and move on a lot quicker.....how cool is that!

    Keep up the good work love.

  • Hi, yesterday was my day 3 and I felt a little narky as well. Definitely found it harder than the first 2 days.

  • How weird it is to read this, first time i've gone back a few weeks to see what I was posting. Think i'll have a look back at my posts, good to see the journey i've made.

    Angelina, I can absolutely promise you that as each day passes, it gets easier. Stick with it, it is well worth it.
