Day 2 (Grrrrrrr)

:mad:

Day 2 thoughts:

I'm eating a bit more than usual. I've had bored moments. Had tons of moments where I've had my 'thought habit' going on....'I'll have a fag after doing that...oh'.

I feel grumpy and tired. I spoke to my Mum, who has firmly told me that I will fail and miss the fags soooo much because fags are lovely, commenting on the fact she could hear me munch a digestive over the phone.....twice. She didn't ask or anything she just stated 'You're eating'.... twice. I don't know why that's riled me so much but it has :mad:

Read lots of literature to help me and am now convinced that as I am on Champix I am cheating and that CT is the only way to go. I am just prolonging the agony and although Champix has no Nicotene in it it still stimulates the same receptors, therefore cheating. :mad: Bog off 'holier than thou' websites.

Surely any way is better than no way.

Did I mention I'm grumpy........?

  • Don't worry about anyone else's opinion. It is YOUR quit, you are doing it for YOU and whatever anyone else thinks is irrelevant.

    If your mum comments on your eating again in regards to the fact you have quit (in other words how terrible it is that you are eating more because you are not smoking and will get fat) just respond how I did to my aunt "true, I completely understand you would prefer me dead to fat". Watch them squirm while they respond, and then if they get nasty you have an excuse to vent lol.

    People quit all manner of different ways, none is wrong, all are different and if it keeps you off the ciggies all is good - unless you have a cigarette how is it cheating? It is cigarettes you want to give up, and you are!

    Grumpyness comes and goes. Personally I embrace the grumpiness and utilise the excuse I have lol

    No it doesn't. Champix shuts down the recpetors in your brain which tell you that you enjoy smoking. Thats whay it works. It makes you see that when you don't get the 'brain' enjoyment out of it that it just tastes absolutely disgusting!!!

    Right vent over lol

    Hi, well done on quitting.

    Don't listen to your Mum. You can do this, and so what if you ate 2 biscuits??? I ate a whole pack of ginger nuts a day for a few days to get me past the worst. Yes I put some weight on but now I am over the worst of the initial cravings I am starting to eat healthy again and will loose the weight.

    Other people will always have opinions on your quit. The only one that matters is yours!!!

  • I'm soo with you looper, it's the habit thing!!! After smoking on Champix before we stopped we already know we'll get nothing from it.

    Sounds like if that is your mum's attitude towards it then she's a smoke too, if she is then it prob envy talking.

  • Hi Looper

    I have to agree with the other guys and gals here. Your not cheating and whatever helps you to stop and stay stopped has my thumbs up.

    I started on the Champix, gave up and then went CT but each to there own, those tablets never agreed with me. As for your mum you do what u have to do, take no notice of her. Its your quit not hers and i had the same from my OH who said i would not do it yet 26 days in and after a few hairy moments im still nic free.

    Good luck and keep it up cos your doing great x

  • Hi Looper

    Well done on day 2. Don't worry about being grumpy, we're giving up a particularly nasty habit so we're allowed to be! The other night I almost castrated my hubby for stirring the cabbage with a fish slice instead of a wooden spoon :D Keep going, I'm sure the madness doesn't last for long :rolleyes:

  • Hi and Thanks so much guys, for some reason yesterday was really hard, especially as I kinda thought day one was a breeze so wasn't that prepared.

    I just felt the wind leaving my sails yesterday, especially trawling stop smoking sites for inspiration and some of the anti 'replacement' sites got me down a bit - because this is hard and quite honeslty I'll take all the bliddy help I can get!!

    My Mum rang up again that evening - said 'Hi' and then said 'Yeah?' just that, just a question :confused:

    Initially I thought, eh? So I lead (weird when you have to lead the conversation when they rang you) by asking how she was and she said 'Fine......Yeah?' So I asked her if she meant to ring me?????? Like - why keep asking 'Yeah?' as if she's expecting me to say something........and then I twigged. She was expecting me to say something, she was expecting me to say:

    'Oh Mum I too love fags and can't bear it without and am going to have one right now'. :rolleyes:

    I didn't, I refused, so I took the moment to blow off some grumpyness and gave her what for about an issue in my life that's peeing me off a bit :D.

    Said nothing about cigarettes, giving up, nothing. Just moaned and moaned about something else....I went right on about it. Hopefully she won't ring me again!!!!!!! :D

    Feel better today, Thank you all, this is invaluable support xx

    Oh Rachel!! That did make me smile :D.

    Looper - You're doing great hun. The first few days are especially trying but you can get through them!! That's so mean that your mum's being so unsupportive. This is *your* quit not hers so just ignore her. The nicodemon will try to convince you that she's right but he's a congenital liar. Don't listen to him!! You're far stronger than the cigs Looper. You *can* and *will* do this!!

    Good luck!!
