Hi all you non-smokers and all those that are contemplating "the quit", I think I have stopped for nearly a week. I think this is day seven, so nearly a week. Just wanted to say thanks for your supportive messages. Going on this forum is great cos everyone empathises with your angst, a rare thing indeed. I am feeling fine but worried that it is all going too smoothly. I have failed so many times that complacency is never going to be a problem, even after 10 years. So i am doing the AA thing of "one day at a time" whilst feigning serenity even when i feel like murdering the person on the bus who actually thinks it's acceptable to have a long loud chat about nothing in a public place. It actually causes me to wince when I hear the dreaded words "I'm on the bus.....10 minutes.....yeah , take it out the freezer.....O.K .....see you soon...love you... blah de blah del blah. Bloody mobile phones. Give us a break idiots!!! Would love to spark up a fag and watch their shocked expression!!!
Well, feel better after that rant. I could go on. Ipods on the bus are another one. Too Loud!
Anyway, so far so good, and with my trusty patch, it is remarkably painless, bar the occasional triggers of waking up in the morning, after meals and before bed and phoning someone, having a drink, watching telly and just chilling out really. That's quite a lot actually!!
Still, haven't cracked and don't intend to. But if I do, it will be my choice. So I choose not to smoke! Easy. I will deal with today and tomorrow will come along hopefully and then I'll deal with that. Time flies even when you're not smoking. Never expected that, thought my life would literally come to a stand-still and at times it does, but miraculously, the clock hands keep turning and night becomes day. At least I am not smoking my life away. Soon be the world cup. Forza scotland!! Oops, we didn't make it, again. Never mind.
Enough ramblings, have a good evening whatever you are doing.
Well done to all of you who are fending off the nicotine monster. We are the boss!!!
