So im always aware and alert and take one day at a time ,and that has worked for me so far im pleased to say. Thankyou for all your help with your posts .

Hey Jan

I can relate to not wanting to give the government any more money.

Don't steal, the govenment hates competition.

Just thought i would add im not into the politics of things or anything like that . just the price of cigs is silly .But if i wanted 2 smoke i would find the money ,always do when im smoking .

Thankyou for all your kind words .I still take it one day at a time . some days i dont even think of a cig. Stress is my bug bear ,then the big fat crave really comes .

I have a friend who packed in 20 yrs ago .She told me even now when she is in the supermarket she looks at the cigs and thinks go on buy a pack ,just for that split second .ALWAYS KEEP ON TOP OF IT .Never get flat footed so to speak . xxxx

112 days quit . Had my first dream of me smoking last night , and when i woke up for a couple of seconds i really wished i did have a cig in my hand . Then it just passed . Thought id share that , very strange feeling .

...Thought id share that , very strange feeling .

There's a reason the phrase 'old habits die hard' exists. :)

Whether you consciously banish these things to the dark recesses of your mind or not we still find they pop up to say hello even in smokers that quit many years ago.

The further down the path we go the more amusing they seem in some ways. Smoking memories can't really be any different from childhood memories at the end of the day.

If it helps to smoke just in your dreams it's certainly cost-effective!
