  • Hey Neddy,

    That's an absolute bummer on 2 accounts. 1 not getting any replies yesterday and 2 because of the blip/s. The combined active membership do try to get to everyone and post supportively. However, there are a large contingent of guests that look in and that I suspect is why you got a lot of views. If any of the views were by an active member then you would have been supported...promise.

    That aside, what a dolt for having a smoke last night....tut. But more to the point, hope that you are feeling better today and not overly dissappointed. We are just learning lessons until we finally get our heads straight. How many smokes did you have last night? How do you feel today? Did the smokes sort out any burning issues for you (no pun intended)?

    If you only had a couple of smokes you could put the experience down to a blip and continue with marching into week 4.

    Whatever, keep on keepin' on,

    Cav

  • Neddy - that's aweful not getting any comments on achieving 21 days. Think (and hope) Cav is correct. My experience is that anytime I declare a milestone (or moan or anything else), people do respond. So, a belated WELL DONE YOU. :)

    As for your blip - your call on whether day 1 or 21. What's really good is you recognising straight away that you've stopped that habit and you've come back here.

    Hi Neddy :)

    I am so sorry I didn't see your post yesterday or I would have at least responded with a well done you I can only apologise for me not seeing it I try hard not to miss anyone out but inevitably it soes happen at times

    I'm also sorry that after a good start your day went so wrong for you last night and you had a little blip and had 2 puffs on a fag

    I don't think you're a dolt as Cav has said at all you've done well getting to 21 days I personally think that just 2 puffs doesn't count in the scheme of things here

    Yes you had a couple of puffs but look at it another way how many have you not smoked in the last 3 weeks eh Depending on how you feel about it I would just carry on and call today 22 days smokefree

    Many on here have had more than that and carried and in some cases more than once have they slipped and continued as if nothing has happened

    I hope this helps Neddy and once again I'm so sorry I missed you yesterday as I was here on and off until about 5 pm

    Love, Hugs and apologies

  • Ned, I had almost exactly the same thing on the Saturday night of my "week 4". I found an old ciggy lying round and had a couple of puffs.

    I think the consensus round here is that you can have one "blip" as long as it's not really smoking again (sounds like you didn't really smoke). So long as you didn't rocket through a 10 pack, I think you should let yourself off.

  • Sorry about your post yesterday. You have had a blip but you are up and off again today, thats brilliant. Perhaps some more reading would help, it's what helps us stay stopped.

    Wishing you a good day, and look forward to hearing how you get on tomorrow.

  • Neddy, my sincerest apologies for not seeing your post.

    As far as where to go, day 1 or 22, I think only you can make that decision. You didn't enjoy it, after 2 puffs it went out and you wish you hadn't done it, doesn't sound as though its dented your quit much does it?

    Don't let a moment like this eat you up, move forward and take something from it to reinforce your feeling about smoking

    Chuck those smokes out of the house and get on with the great job you were doing. See you in Month 1 soon!

    P.s Sorry for hijacking your post neddy

  • Hey Ned.

    Sorry about not replying to your message, but I honestly didn't see it. But then I only went on this forum for a few minutes last night.

    Never mind about your "blip". I'm sure it was just a little one and I'm glad that you are not smoking again.

    Just keep positive and stay strong. (that's easier said than done!!) and keep reading and posting messages on this site as it's a brill site to be on.

    Take care and speak soon.

    Ju:cool:

  • Sorry Ned...I did not see your post yesterday...it is very unusal for someone not to get any replies...the guys are usually great on here.

    Sorry about the blip but well done on getting back on board with your quit.

    Good luck lovely and stay strong xx

  • I had a dream the other night that I smoked a cigarette and was really pissed because I felt I had to go back to day one again. I hold onto that everyday because it gets me through. If I have one puff, I will make myself go back to day one and that will really bum me out. That is my belief and it applies to ME.

    You have to do what is right for you.

    If keepin on, keeps YOU going, then do it!!!!!

    and, congrats on getting where you are, even having had a very small blip

  • well done on day 22 :) call it a blip and move on. You're doing so well. nearing the one month mark!

    Seems we all have dreams about giving in and smoking that naughty ciggy!!
