10th Day

Into my tenth day now, feeling kinda ragged and frantic,

Chest feels tight

Keep smelling strange things or is it a mind thing.

Never eaten like this before, I try and drink lots of water to keep me full.

I have strange feelings on the skin like accupunture or tingles that go through my body from feet to face like a wave.

I went CT and listen to a hypnosis tape now and then seems to help,

The urges are less in number but they seem to be longer in time especially after the evening meal have to watch that,

Had a few beers in a pub today and watched the smokers outside for a while also went into a few newsagents to buy peppermints never had a desire for a smoke at all,

I keep saying things like

I am in charge I am better than tobacco I want to live I am stronger than any drug.

It is most strange about 15 years ago I gave up smoking for about 5 years after smoking for about 20 years. I just kept listing to a hypnosis tape week after week somtimes it was repeating itself over and over while I slept then one day I did not even think about smoking the withdrawal was very mild however I took up swimming and started doing very long workouts in the pool almost to an addictive state ie 5 miles a time I had to ease off because I was loosing to much body fat, I think I just transfered my addiction.

I will swim this time around just purchased new swimming gear but not so much.

Seemes that each quit attempt is very different I guess different stresses ect.

Things I,ve done to have a smoke

Walked over 5 miles through deep snow ( didnt even have my brand when i got to the village )

Sold important things ie power tools, books, pictures.

Smoked the butts in the ashtray.

Any how I seem to feel a little better now after putting all this junk down.

I have just smelt my fingers and looked at my tongue in the mirror and I say this is how i want to be in future.

  • Hey Gary,

    well done so far... 10 days is a good start. You've done this before and that truly is an advantage... you know you can do it! I also did CT and listened to a hypnosis cd..... I listened to it so much I could almost recite it word by word but luckily by month 2 or so I didn't need it any longer.

    Keep going strong and keep doing what you've been doing so far.... it's not going to take all that much longer before you feel like yourself again.

    One word of advice... don't mention 'weight loss' on here all that much..... not sure if the majority on here will want to hear that ;)

    Welcome to the forum.... you can absolutely do this!

    Thanks bellablue13

    Nice to know that hynosis is used by others, when I use it I find that I really go under and it must do something to my subconscious, because when I think and repeat the words from the tape I feel myself being hypnotized without the tape and all the positive stuff floods through me.

    I guess hypnosis is not for everyone all paths are valid if they work, and we learn a better way next time around ( once more into the breech ) .

    As for the weight loss issue I was showing that addiction can be passed around and one has to be aware where it goes.

    Cheers
