In my second week

So pleased to have made it this far. I had a couple of cravings last night but just kept myself busy and ate some grapes.

I don't feel so cranky now. Getting used to the smoke free life and I like it. I might even paint my nails tonight. I have avoided this because I always had a cigarette between coats, a bit silly to avoid it but there you go.

  • Hi Ellie :D

  • Great job getting in week 2 Ellie. The cravings do get less as time goes on, i'm only in week 3 but have noticed a huge difference in the amount of cravings I get, so hang on in there.

    Give those nails some special attention, it will make you feel good because, a) you'll have really nice looking nails, and b) it will be another trigger conquered, and that feels really good afterwards.

    Glad you are feeling and doing great,

    Lorraine :)

  • Well done Ellie, how you have reminded me of the times we smoked. Even now the thought still slips into my mind if I have to go somewhere I don't go to daily, it's the rememberance thing, I used to smoke there or then, it never feels like I want to smoke just remember it.

  • I used to get cravings when I played tomb raider and got attacked by bears! Previously i'd get a bit spooked and pause it and go for a smoke! Sad, I know :rolleyes:

    Lol, Fiona.

    I will paint my nails tonight. This morning was a bit stressful at work. Instead of nipping out for a fag break, I took some deep breaths and chomped on some fruit.

    Thanks for all the support. It helps, especially as I am trying to keep my quit low key ay home so as not stress my husband. He acutally asked me how I was finding the cravings were. I think he is impressed at how well I am doing, so hopefully he will grasp the mettle soon and quit. Our boys would be ecstatic.

  • Great job Ellie on getting to week 2.

    Well done Ellie, keep chomping the fruit!!

    It was the Tyranasaurus Rex at the start of Tomb Raider II (or maybe III) that scared me, sitting in the dark, fag in hand... back in the day.

    Yay for Ellie and painty nail fun.

  • 9 Days done and dusted and...

    I dealt with a major trigger today! I had a critique to do for my OU course. Normally, I would puff away. But I wrote it all and I was a lot quicker than normal.

  • No gym today

    Now my assignment has been sent, I feel knackered. Physically not so great today. I have a sore throat and I am coughing up the gunge. I plan to rest and drink loads of water. I have a busy weekend so I will just recharge my battery today.

  • Another success

    I went to the dinner dance last night. Despite, being a bit tipsy, I never had a cigarette. It was nice to sit and relax and not have to go out in the cold for a fag.

    More good news - my husband is getting himself ready to quit. The boys will be delighted.

    Bill, thanks for the kind words.

  • EllieC great u have come so far.... I know what u mean about having a cig in between certain stages of doing things....... not silly at alll

    hope to seee you on here for a while x

  • Happy Monday

    Feeling good today. I went to the gym after dropping my boys at school. Then stopped for a smoothie and a cup of tea in our local cafe. It was nice to relax and read my magazine and not thinkin gabout leaving so I could have a cigarette.

    Nearly 2 weeks done and I am so happy to be free.

    Have a good week.

  • 14 days tomorrow

    I am doing fine. I think this is it this time. In my head I do not smoke. I have a new zest for life at the moment. Checking my bank balance was pleasing today.

    Only downside are the zits that have appeared this week. Not used to spots. I plan to give myself a face mask tomorrow. In the meantime, I will continue drinking lot's of water.

    Have a good week.

  • Yay - 2 weeks done

    Time to move onto week 3. Thanks for all the help.
