2nd week ...just!!!

Well, I have just gone into day 8, so officially into week 2. Mind you I didnt think I was going to get here last night and first thing this morning. Have had a really good quit up until then, no real cravings...but last night the little bu***rs hit me like a sledge hammer....I didnt give in tho, just stuffed my face with creme eggs!.

Been awake on and off all night really wanting a ciggie, and even picked 1 up and got the lighter out...but I didnt do it.

Feeling bit better now.....but cannot motivate myself to do anything today, had planned to do so much, but cant be arsed.......I hate this "poor me" attitude and I know its only me that can change it...

Sorry to be a whinger......its a beautiful sunny day, so now gonna go and put my hat and coat on and go for a nice walk along the beach.......I will do this!!!!

Anyway have a good day everyone, will post later - enjoy the lovely day if the sun is shining where ever you are

  • Hi Deb :)

    Sorry you had a bad night hun where only cream eggs could help but you made it to week 2 and that's what matters most

    Well done also for picking up a fag and the lighter but not lighting up now that took real strength

    I'm glad you're feeling a bit better now though and if you don't want to do anything then don't have a lazy day you deserve it after that massive fight enjoy the walk hun it will blow the cobwebs away for you

    Don't apologise for haveing a whinge/moan/rant it helps sometimes I know that full well

    Hi debs,

    Just got up and read your post. I feel exactly the same!! I am on Day 13 and its a lovely day and I want to make the most of it, its just that initial weirdness of not having a fag to kick-start the day. I find I have to really be strict with myself in the morning and just go into auto-pilot, get dressed etc and go out. Then it is fine, whats the problem? I feel really happy i am not smoking for most of the day, but the morning after a disturbed night is hell to get through. A day without smoking looms and it is a depressing prospect. However, everyone is right about reading, educating yourself - especially Allan Carr. Its just an illusion, the junkie thinking. We can choose to NOT this way, even if first thing in the morning that is the ONLY way we are able to think. If you get what i mean. Just rise above it and get moving, go down to the beach and breathe the fresh air. i am sure a ciggy will soon be far from your thoughts. I have smoked on many a beach and the wind has usually spoiled the experience, so its no loss and a great place to go to ponder on the unnatural activity that smoking is.

    So well done on making it through a Friday night (weekends are so much harder!) and make it your target to get to Monday, fag-free. You have a positive attitude so you can do it for sure. Wish I was near a beach! Enjoy your day. Cheers,

  • Good going, but, why did you have a cig to pick up?

    Throw them out as well as the lighters.

    Get a plastic drink straw and cut it in half. that's your crutch-feels like a cig.

    Debs, sorry you had a bad one but that did make me smile...creme eggs are my favourite too, but I'm not allowed now till Easter.

    You are not being a winger, it happens. The quit causes it, you are giving your body one hell of a shock at the moment so dont beat yourself up.

    Enjoy the sun and good luck
