8 weeks today

I can't believe that it's 8 weeks since my last smoke.I still feel like I am a smoker because when I'm stressed I could kill for a ciggy, through these times I grit my teeth and wait for it to pass (which they do) Unfortunately I have a lot of domestic problems, just have to keep telling myself that a ciggy won't change anything, also get no support from o/h. Sorry for this self pitying ramble but it helps to write it down and try to keep things in perspective

  • Hi Marie, that's fantastic, brilliant and well done. I'm not much further ahead of you 9 weeks and 4 days. Around the 8 weeks mark I felt the same very difficult time. The thing that got me is when will it end? I did not want to smoke but did want something. Well today I feel I have stopped smoking, did not have any inclin to smoke at work no triggers and I feel this could be the beginning of the end.

    So hang in there don't dare give in now you have not far to go. As you say if you have a fag the problems don't go away, they will still be there.

    I have had something that has caused me alot of worry for 2 and a half weeks. I have to go to a meeting tomorrow to try and sort it out and I'm cr***ing myself but it has not made me smoke because the first thing I said to myself when this started it wont make it go away if I smoke.

  • Hope you are feeling better today. Sometimes I still crave for a fag but the more you beat the craves the easier it becomes to tackle them until eventually they become just an annoying niggle in the back of your mind sometimes. x
