Day 11 and wobbling

Here I am on day 11 of not smoking. I've been doing OK with getting through the cravings and not giving in to them.

However today I'm finding myself trying to justify having a cig. I'm telling myself that I can always resume my quit afterwards but I know that won't happen and I'll be back to smoking regularly in no time. I've worked hard to get to day 11 and I'm proud that I've managed that small achievement. I don't want to throw it all away and I won't!! I just want the nagging voice to go away.

Thanks for listening. I *will* get through this. I just wanted a bit of a bleat :).

Good luck to everyone wherever in your quit you are!!

  • Stay really strong Ed....this is tbe addiction talking.

    Remember to give in today would mean having to do that awful day 2 again and horrid day 8. you are stronger and better than this and 11 days is nearly two weeks.....your quit is building strongly and solidly.

    To give in today you will feel wretched tomorrow to dig deep and get through today.....you will feel elated and even more proud tomorrow.

    I have a long run today.....stretching myself longer than ever before and that is what i am telling myself. lol...

    Stay strong Ed you are doing so well.

  • Thanks Lorna.

    At the moment the thought of throwing the last 11 days away is too depressing to even contemplate smoking now. I'd say it's getting easier day by day on average, but there's the odd occasion like today that comes up and has a go. Damn this addiction!! I'm determined to beat it!

    I hope you have a good run today :).

  • Imagine the worst decorating job you have ever done?

    Just think of all the time you spent doing it, imagine putting your paintbrush down at last and being told its not just quite the right shade (the same as just one fag) and you have to do it all again from the begining.

    I know I would be saying F that for a caper.
