I want one, now!


OMG, just drove back from a job, i'm muddy, but warm, tired, but pleasantly so, and there is no-one home. Talk about my ideal situation for a cigarette!

There are none in the house though and I did'nt stop on the way home (but my god I thought about it).

Kid's will be home in half an hour. It will be OK, and i'm sure i'll be a stronger person after this, but right now, it's a little testing!

  • Hi Lorraine, just breath. Go on a big breath.

    Now, how do we distract you. Could you put on some very loud music and dance around, could you read some of the links? How about a really bad joke, I know I have done this one here before but hey

    Two blondes walk into a building

    you'd a thought one of them would have seen it!

  • back from school run, how are you doing now?

  • Ooooo...carp jokes, here's my offering :)

    What do you call an exercise regime invented by Maharashtrian aunties?

    Tai chi

  • Lorraine don't you dare!! I can understand today is bad for me and yes I could smoke right now, so we are both in the same boat.

    Do what I do I tell myself not to be stupid it's only your mind playing tricks on you cos' the nicodemon's in a coma.

    Come chin up chest out:D and soldier on.

    Why did the blond climb the glass wall?

    To see what was on th other side. :D

  • Seriously grab chocolate! Just eat something and swear a lot. Works for me.


  • Hope that craves gone now. Good for you for posting about it.

    I saw your title and thought to myself........... "I didn't...... do now though"

    They pass luckily and do become fewer and less intense........ craves can be like the weather..... all over the place.

    Hang in there :)

    just for you Cav a carp joke


    One day God calls down to Noah and says, "Noah me old china, I want you to make me a new Ark".

    Noah replies, "No probs God, me old Supreme Being, Anything you want.. After

    all, you're the guv" .

    But God interrupts, "Ah, but there's a catch." This time Noah, I want not just a couple of decks, I want 20 decks one on top of the


    "20 DECKS!", screams Noah, "Well, OK Big Man whatever you say. Should I fill it up with all the animals just like last time?"

    "Yep, that's right, well, sort of right, this time I want you to fill it up with fish", God answers.

    "Fish?", queries Noah?

    "Yep, fish, well, to make it more specific Noah, I want carp - wall to wall, floor to ceiling - Carp!"

    Noah looks to the skies. "OK God my old mucker, let me get this right, you want a New Ark?"


    "With 20 decks, one on top of the other?".


    "And you want it full of Carp?".


    "Why?" asks the perplexed Noah, who was slowly but surely getting to the end of his tether.

    "Dunno", says God, "I just fancied a Multi-Storey Carp Ark".

  • ho ho that made me fall of chair laughing !

  • ho ho that made me fall of chair laughing !

    you really need to get out more :D

  • OK, two and half hours later, and it's ok, a few aftershocks, family home, we've had a bit of a laugh about it. If you can think of every calming thought you've ever had, I've had it in the last two hours.

    But we're doing good. Moment has gone and I'm feeling clean and much calmer.

    I can remember thinking about a week after stopping that there were very few cigarettes that I actually really enjoyed, and i can honestly say that over the last three weeks, there have been few occasions where I can honestly say I would have really, really wanted one, fancied one yes, but really wanted, not really, until today.

    I am so, so, thankful that my OH has stopped as well and there are none in the house. Would I have had one, I hope not, but there's no point in dwelling on it, I didn't and that's that.

    Many, many thanks for your words of support and distraction. You're all bright shiny stars and I thank you.

    Lorraine :)

  • Phew! You should be really proud of yourself, and your quit will be stronger for getting through it.

    Well done.

  • Thanks for checking up on me Bev, funny how these things take you by suprise, they come from flippin nowhere.

    Sorry Pol for making you think of it, I shall be more careful about titles in the future :o

    Lorraine :)

  • Just glad I was around, and so glad to hear your past it. It can be so hard when you are in the middle of the crave from hell. So now girl here we go onwards and upwards.

  • Sorry Pol for making you think of it, I shall be more careful about titles in the future :o

    Lorraine :)

    Don't worry about me and any titles, you post just what you want/need to ....... I'm used to getting these odd craves and wants, I can cope just fine. It was more of a 'smile' along with the 'I didn't but do now' sort of thing ;)and it was gone within a couple of mins anyway.

    Good to hear you got through yours :)

  • Well done Lorraine for not giving into those nicodemons.

    I can totally relate to how you have felt today, I too felt the same today and am normally feel like this on a friday. At home nobody around and I to could have bought some and nobody would have known?????, but i would and I would feel terribley disappointed like you would if you have given into feeding him today!!!!.

    Just look you have come through this and have proved to yourself that you can resist the temptation however strong and laugh about it with your family.

    I'm proud of you hun.


  • Lozza, how are you?
