Day 43 - and still optimistic that things will get better

My immune system is just shot to hell, had a cold for over 3 weeks now.

Can't go to the gym, can't go out too tired, nearly asleep at my desk every day.

Started having thoughts about what it would be like to have that one fag.. ! Don't worry I wont be having it.. but can't seem to stop thinking about it grrrrrrrrrrrr

I have not smoked for 1 Month, 1 Week, 4 Days, 20 hours, 47 minutes and 5 seconds (42 days). I have saved £148.90 by not smoking 514 cigarettes. I have saved 1 Day, 18 hours and 50 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 03/01/2010 18:20

Even so, your guard is down at the moment due to not feeling too well and mr. Nicodemon is holding up flash cards with a picture of a cigarette on it just to add to the pressure. Just keep resisting and don't give in to his mind games while your not feeling so good, the last thing you want anyway is upset on top of this cold.

It will right itself, that cold cannot last forever. Hope you get well soon.




its true .. all i can think about right now. is having a ciggie.. but i wont give in.. i have come to far to ruin things now..


Hi Princess M

I am sorry to hear you are struggling and it is not fair that you are doing so well with the quit and feel so poorly on top of it!

All I can say is that I agree with Jase. Try to remember that if you have a cigarette then you will still have the cold and will feel even worse for smoking. I have some problems too at the moment and try to tell myself that having a fag won't make them go away - the problems will still be these but I will feel worse for undoing all my great work.

Keep it up xxx :)
