Hi Everone.

It is a grey murky drizzle morning in west sussex,but I have got to the 2 week stage so the sun is shining in my heart.

I dont feel like a non smoker I feel the other smoker self is just around the corner.

I am determined and am very pleased because I have done this for myself.

Wiosh me luck and well done to everyone reguardless if you have stopped for 1 day or 1 year.

  • You're doing great Terri!!!

    Keep vigilant to that nasty persistent little voice and you'll be fine. It gets weaker each day so keep up the good work :).

  • Hey Terri, well done hun, you are doing GREAT!

    It will get better, i feel the same, i know that if i found a cigarette, i'm not sure if i'd have the will power not to smoke it, not yet.

    Keep strong and focused hun, remember why you quit in the first place and try to keep those reasons in the forefront of your mind. You can do this, we all can :)

  • Thanks Ed.

    Here's to week 3 indeed!! :). We're both doing brilliantly Terri!!

    I had a bit of a 'yearning' moment having my coffee inside the coffee shop this morning watching the smokers outside. The thought of their arteries furring up and their lungs getting filled with gunk soon put paid to that :).

    You take care too, and good luck!!

  • It gets sooooo close at times.

    On Monday I actually lit the end of a cigarette, but a voice in my head shouted NO NO NO, and before I could take a drag I stubbed it out.

    I'm hearing voices mmmmmm very interesting doctor

    I certainly was pleased that I had not acted on the nicodemons voice, but on the stronger me voice, and was quite proud that I was able to restrain myself.

    Not had another close call like that, and find that it has made be more resolute than ever.

  • Thanks Everyone.

    It's good to know that these feeling and craves I have is not unusually and seemed to dog everyone,so that's great in a way because it is normal if you like.

    I feel if I had a cig packet here I way have a drag just to see.I think see what ! it is only a roundabout way of trying to smoke.You fool yourself into thinking it just a test of will.

    Please let us not trick ourselves.

    Mad isn't it.

  • congratulations :) that smile looks awfully good on you!!

    I *think* it DOES get better, very subtly but in wonderful ways!

    I do think I will be a "smoker" for a very long time even if I don't smoke but the identity will still be with me. But for yesterday and today, if I would have had a cigarette available, I think I would have sniffed it a lot, but perhaps not lit it. Whereas all the other days, I'd lit it and looked desperately for the next one.....
