Day 4

Day 4(10)

I'm still to get back to where I was when I messed up last thursday, but things are going smoothly. my crawings have reduced in severerity to low level gnawing, and triggers are becomming more obviously triggers so should be easier to sort out distractions.

Like others have reported, it's getting a heck of a lot easier to get up for work in the morning. and I've just washed my favorite jumper :D

    Are youse talking to me pal???:D

    I jest, but bloomin heck have i been touchy today, and this afternoon I was climbing the wall with cravings. I've had to ask everybody to not talk to me, because noise is making me angry.

    onwards and upwards to day 5

    Oh god, I've just realised my mum is coming round for a coffee :eek:

    lol yer mum will be the real test m8. mine came round yesterday and it was a real test of character :D

  • Low level gnawing... I like. :D

    You know the drill - deep breaths, sips of water, keep yourself busy, it will pass....

    And just keep reminding reminding yourself of why you are quitting, can be very easy to forget to begin with, I think.

    Good luck, and try not to gnaw your mum's head off... not even a little bite :)

  • Here ya go!!

    :D:D:D:D

    Well done, getting through a visit from your mum!!

    (I hope she's not reading this. My mum thinks that because I havent smoked for four weeks, I'm cured. I wish!!)

    I tried to give you 5 smilies, but only allowed 4

  • Mine, bless her, said

    is that gum a good idea?

    I didn't say "Yes it's keeping you alive"

    :D

  • Well this is day 5(12) or something. I know I quit a week ago last sunday then messed up on thursday evening, so actually it might be day 6(12)

    My brain hurts, and my IQ's dropped by about 50 points.

    oh well, onwards and upwards...

    I have 3 days off work as it's the end of the holiday year, so I'm at home today, I figure I'll go round to my parents and see if my push bike hasn't rotten away to nothing.

    Yes folks I'm thinking exercise :eek:

  • Take your gum!!

    Two encounters with your mum in two days??

    Very Brave!!!

    BTW, Love the post about the gum comment!

    :D

    :D

    LMAO!!:D

    Planning on not seeing my mother until week 2 for that very reason ;)

  • It gets worse....

    it's the MiL at easter :(:mad::D

  • HA - good luck with that :(

    Sod the gum, you may need a rock to bite down on if she's like my MIL

    :p

  • Did I say that was Day 5???

    oh well, onwards and upwards to day 6 or 7 or whatever.

    I call her Mother-in-law-zilla:D

  • Annnnnnd that was day 7 since my muck up last thursday PM. Day 12 since formal "I'm quitting" just in case anyone's thinking "hang on, he's having a better time of it"

    on the whole, not a bad day. The afternoon has seen a few manageable cravings. I've consumed 3 pieces of 2Mg Gum. The strategy I've developed is to allow myself 5, but use it as and when I get serious cravings.

    I managed to fool my body for a couple of hours, by giving it non nicoteen gum, and also chewing the nicorette stuff for several hours past when it loses all flavour.

    I've done my calculations for savings and stuff, and I've made an alarming discovery ... I think I was smoking around 30-40 a day.. i was lying to myself that i was smoking "less than 20"

    OH well, onwards, and upwards to Week 2
