I am on day 5 and it has been miserable. But i can't blame the fags, I just feel lousy. I have no energy and thought I was going to faint in a furniture shop, luckily I just made use of the beds and comfy sofas and didn't keel over after all. I think it is the strong patch that is to blame, but I didn't take it off. Was not working today, so am able to be sick if I feel like it. Went out last night and all around me were smoking (an outdoor place) and it made me feel pretty tense , not my usual self. At one point my bf said "stop suffering and just have one". Amazingly , I did not!! He was only trying to help. He knows if he says "keep going, resist temptation", I cave immediately. So good tactics. But it was hard and although i had a couple of beers, I didn't feel tipsy till i had a gin/lemon at the end of the night, very tasty. I finally relaxed a wee bit, and didn't stress re the smokes. Basically, going out is a minefield.
Anyway, feel too weak to smoke today. But the thought of never smoking agan doesn't make me go "yipee". Hope tomorrow is better.BF has just lit a fag next to me on the sofa. At least I can benefit fro the passive smoking!!
Sorry, if this all sounds negative. Underneath I am quietly determined and actually get quite angry when I think of all the lives ciggies have claimed etc. They will not take mine!!!
Hats off to all you quitters. Forza!!
