Feeling good!

:)

Hi

Still feeling positive today, but very emotional, keep bursting into tears over very silly things! I don't feel down or depressed just can't stop crying! Its strange really, because I really don't fancy a cigarette, the thought of actually smoking makes me feel ill, but I do miss my backdoor step! I guess it must be the couple of minutes of peace I used to get there! :o

Another strange thought I keep having is that I can't wait for the day when I won't be thinking about not smoking nearly all day, really looking forward to that moment when it is just normal that I don't smoke!:confused:

Hope you are all doing okay, Day 4 tomorrow, half a week!!:)

  • hey sas,

    congrats on still going so strong. I still miss the "break" part of smoking. I still havent found a solution to that really.

    Now sometime when I've been infront of the screen I just stand up and walk around for a bit! not really the same, but working till I find something better.

    I would be interested in others views on what they do now to give them selves a break. Guess theres a whole lot more tea and coffee being drunk now that you don't have to choose between smoke or drink when you only have a few minutes ;)

    day 4 is grand. Every day is a massive achievement. Especially at the start, but I still feel proud of every day, even now.

    keep going :D

  • day 3 for me too.:D64 hours to be precise.

    i am finding the cravings quite bad and i feel very sad that i wont smoke again.stupid huh?

  • Well done on day 3. I know what you mean about emotional. And tea, i've never drunk so much herb tea, I'm sloshing around with it.

    There's lot's of emotional ups and downs, time to fill (remember, it's not many minutes at a time though), try not actually think any further ahead than today. Promise yourself not to smoke today, and don't think about tomorrow or next week. Think about tomorrow in the morning after giving yourself a huge pat on the back at bed time tonight.

    Day 4 tomorrow, nice one :)

  • You're doing so well.....

    Hi sas,

    Well done on making day 3, don't know if you have read much about the terrible 3's but apparently day 3, week 3 and month 3 are the testing times through the quit process. I went through what you are today in day 3 and i'm on week 3 now and feeling the same again, emotional and anxcious but without the cravings, it's very odd!!!!!.....

    We all go through the emotional stage and especially if your not an emotional person to start with then it's a really odd experience well it is for me anyway.

    Just take baby steps at first, hour by hour and then when you start to feel better then you can look at day by day.

    You have done fantastic on reaching day 3, keep strong and motivated and before you know it you'll be waking up to day 4.

    Getting emotional is quite common, I did, I'm male 63 and it happened to me. Still does, I watched August Rush two nights ago and the tears were there at the end.

    As far as the back doorstep is concerned what's wrong with getting your favorite drink (non alcoholic) and sitting out for a few minutes. Then you can associate your back doorstep with something else you like and not with smoking.

    As far as that day when you don't think of smoking, well everyone is different. It could be a short time it could be a long time just let it develope as it does, don't try to force it.

    May the great willpower be upon you,

    Jack:)
