Day 10 - oh the rage!!!

Today i had smoking clinci.

My carbon monoxide count is down to 2! It was 13 two weeks ago. Well proud of myself.

But the lack of sleep, as well as stoooopid bloody people! My day has been a case of extremes....very happy with my progress but then fuming!

I was waiting for this person to reverse out of the car parking spot, my indicator was on and everything!!! THIS SILLY WOMAN!! decided she'd excelerate as i was pulling in, steal my spot. It took everything i was not to get out the car.

I beeped my horn, gave her the finger, and raged at my OH.

THENN!!! I was in the cue for the petrol pump! And this woman! OMG!! It took her minutes to fill her tank, she was in the shop for no word of a lie 15 minutes and she came out with NOTHING. :mad::mad:

So, today wasnt a good one.

But would me smoking have made any difference? No.

Im just glad that my OH is a diamond and doesnt take it to heart.

Just wanted to rant. Feel better now :D

    Hi Ellie

    I NEVER GET ANGRY OR WOUND UP OR SHOUT AND SCREAM AND BE ABUSIVE

    Sorry didnt mean to shout LOL you go for it girl what ever floats your boat and relieves tension is fine by me and so long as it keeps you smoke free its hip.

    ps A Ciggie would not have stopped stupid people doing stupid things, shoulder massage and hugs to relieve tension xx

  • Hey Elli!

    You won! you beat out nic himself! well done you! he's trying!! trying to get back in there! but you know better!

    lol

    Just completed day 10 myself:D we get stronger by the day don't we?

  • Hi Elli

    Stupid stuff and loud ads on TV make me rage - always have and even more now I'm edgy from not smoking. My kids gave me a toy cap gun last Christmas (long story) and now I shoot it at the TV whenever it annoys me. Hey, it works for me. (Wouldn't take it out in public though, especially to a petrol station!)

    Cheers

  • Well done elli day double figure DAY 10 done...Stressful situations always get me wanting to reach for the fags coz suppose its like theyve always been around & My head knows nothing else...but were doing it...we are surviving without them & nothing really changes that much apart from we dont smoke anymore .........WELL DONE US

  • Elli - I'm a month ahead of you but it doesn't seem that long ago that I had RAGE that even scared the sh*t out of me. I felt like I was about to explode like Wylie Coyote in "Roadrunner" with some ACME EXPLOSIVES..

    Check this out... RAGE explained... (shocking when you realise nicotine controlled receptors in your brain and took your head hostage)

  • sounds like you managed to find the two most idiotic and inconsiderate drivers of the day. If only the would pass you a gun and relax the laws for just 5 minutes eh :)

    you rant away though , its part of the healing process once your quitting, and a good rant is goooooood for the soul :)

    Some of my rants have been quite spectacular, and the language needed to describe it would get this thread moderated to oblivion, so i'll just have to leave it at that ;)
