Hey fellow non smokers , me and my quit pal Karen have made it into week 2 and I feel fantastic (ooh apart from a few coughs I had this morning!)
Yesterday went by with no hitch what so ever, I can count the number of cravings on one hand , they are not even cravings anymore but more like a fleeting thoughts, they are lasting around 30 seconds if that .
I have much more energy and more or less leapt out of bed this morning (no the misses wasn't ammused! As she's still on maternity leave! ha ha)
A little story from yesterday in work : As you probably know it's half term so i'm pretty busy in the shop with kids etc, around 11 am yesterday a lady around 35 and her young son entered the shop , the young lad picked up a drink and a bag of skittles and his mum said put them on the counter and i'll pay for them , she then asked me for 10 Lambert and butler , the total amount came to around 4 pounds 60p, after much rummaging in her purse she found she only had 4 pound on her, so logic tells us put the fags back and buy the lad a drink and some sweets. BUT (yeah you guessed it) she had the lad put back what he wanted to buy her self some ciggys! IT was at this time I was so GLAD I HAVE GIVEN UP . The kid was crying and had a very sad look on his face so I gave the kid a 20p lolly just because i felt sorry for him.
But it just goes to show that the nicotine craving takes over any logical thought process and I know people reading this have probably bought fags instead of something they intended to buy.
Anyway rant over, lol , but I think that story needed to be shared as we NON SMOKERS have all been there.
KAREN WE MADE IT TO WEEK 2!!!
How are you hun? How was yesterday for you ?
