last week of month two

Well, this is my last week in month 2. I am a wee bit apprehensive about going into month 3 as I have heard a few stories about ppl failing here. Is this part of the terrible 3's (3 days/weeks/months), I don't know. I think each day is getting easier but I am still always on my guard :eek:. I also had a revelation :cool:, I have been waiting on the day when this feeling magically disappears, but it won't. I honestly believed I would wake up one day and be cured, but that is never going to happen. I will always be an addict, it will always be with me, I am just learning how to cope with the addiction. I will control it one day but I will never be free of it. I feel great, every thought of having a ciggie that I ignore, I am one step closer to my goal of controlling this thing. Please don't read this and think of it as doom and gloom, it's a happy place when you finally understand your addiction, I have come to terms with this and my addiction and I will live happily side by side together for the rest of my life, with me in control of course :D.

    hi Shojam

    pack your bags and breeze into that third month, i have heard about these terrible 3's but just face it like you have the last two months with positive thoughts, a strong will and determination and you will breeze through it as you have done with the last two months.:)

  • Hi Shojam,

    You are doing brilliant and you have a really calm, level headed approach which I wish I had sometimes.

    I think you will cruise through your 3rd month, you sound totally in control, good luck to you

  • I think this whole 3's thing has been used as an excuse by people.... lets face it anyone who fails or slips up just simply finds an excuse to smoke please do not add preasure to yourself by listening to what other people are using as an excuse....

    Funny excuse...

    My friend has recently tried to quit and after about a week discovered that everything he used to eat tasted so differently that he did not like the taste of some foods SO he says he has to have one ciggerette everyday so that the things he enjoys eating taste the same... is it just me or does this not have nico demon excuse written all over it... haha

    Forget about this whole 3's nonsense and concentrate on how amazingly brilliant you are doing... well done xxxxx

  • Month 3 was a breeze Hun....dont believe the rumours....

    There is a series involved in the quit that most of us go through and around month 3/4 it can get a bit tougher than it has been.....not as tough as it was in the early days but a feeling like you have gone backwards occasionally......not everyone gets it but if you do that is all it is and it is fleeting I promise.

    The great news is that month 4/5 seems to be when most of us turn the corner....you are so so close to joining us all round the bend....

    Head down and stay strong.....you never have to do months one or two again...

    hugs xxxxxl

  • Well done and I truly hope that month three is a breeze and that if you do feel a bit naff then its to do with the quit and not a perticular month, as we progress through the quit we have bad days but they get further and further apart so that we dont notice them, and I promise you that what Lorna said is quite true and you will turn the corner and then you will start to feel differently about the way you deal with the quit, i also am a recovering addict but I will always be one, but I will be one of the ones that can learn to live with it and to only hear a whisper from the nicco demon rather than a shout, take care and I think that room 3 Months could do with a bit of redecoration so if you are good at DIY then theres something to take your mind of the datelines xx

  • wow, thanks. As ever, some wonderful advice. I will do as Lorna advises, head down and keep going :eek: . Month 3 here I come :D
