Over it????

hey guys just checking in - havent been on since friday and i was in abit of a state. Everythings has settled down now personally and although the snow has put me into total hibernation mode in general i feel good - mentally, physically and am proud of myself.

This is my first real quit and so i know from reading other posts that i have to be careful about becoming complacent but i really think im over the main part of my struggle with nicotine and its not really difficult at all anymore:D

strange thing but i was gonna post on monday when i realised that the only time i think about smoking is when i am on this forum. So im gonna to do an experiment and try not to come on as much and see if i can go another few days without craving. Hope it doesnt seem like im knocking this forum or anybody on it - i love you guys for getting me through all the bad times. I will still pop on to help newbies and catch up on how everybodies quits are going.

Does this make sense????

Anybody else find they feel same way???

still love you guys, will miss you

  • Hi Amy,

    I know exactly where you are coming from and have been thinking along the same lines myself a bit.

    I think I will probaly stick around though as I like to help the newbies on their way as it can be quite daunting in the begining. I don't mind thinking about smoking as it doesn't make me crave it, I smoked for 25 years and have only been alive 33 so be along time till I balance the years out so expect it to be in my thoughts for a while yet.

    You do whatever you have to so that you are comfy in your quit. There will always be people here if you need them.

    Best advice I can give you as a parting gift is 'watch out for the cocky one' the one that you think I've done this for 3 months (or 6 or 12) now I can just have one. You can't. There is no such thing as one.

    Good luck matey :)

  • exactly the same amy, sometimes if you get no replys it can be upsetting as if your not in the club kinda thing, had that afew times, been thinking of going it alone for afew days now, 28 days quit for me now so i should be strong enough

    I hate that you have felt like that mate. I know what you mean though as I have had some posts that I have had little or no reply to.

    I will always answer your post if I can help :)

  • Hi Amy :D glad to see your still with us and can understand your reasons for not coming on as often as Michael says we will still be here when you do :)

    i do try and answer as many posts as i can but some days it can get abit overwhelming with the amount of new posts :eek: but its great that so many people out there are finding this forum so helpful

    best regards carol

    what i mean is, if your in a room with someone its instant conversation i dont think the net can ever be like that, i seem to notice theres people use this forum alot but dont seem to reply to many peoples messages unless they are friends, ive sent loads of friends requests out but only afew back, i think thats what i mean by in the club, we are all here for the same reason, anyway enough of my rant, good luck quitting everyone

  • I have read most of your posts, when I first quit I read everything so please don't feel as though I was lurking or anything. I just felt that because you quit before me I didn't have anything to offer to you because you sounded as though you had it all together already. Just as though it would be a bit cheeky I suppose.

    I just wanted to let you know that you have helped me get to my 22 days so thank you.

  • hey guys -me trying to stay away didnt really work - cos i like coming on and see whats happening with everybody.

    Dont want anybody to worry about the amount of replies theyre getting - i understand that some of the issues that are raised dont account to everybody, as each quit is individual and so only a few people that are able to offer advice will reply. as long as the posts are helping other people going through the same thing thats what matters. Just wanna confirm that that wasnt the reason why i was going to try and keep away for a few days. I wasnt thinking about cigs all day but then i would come on the forum and it would remind me that id actually given something up. but as i said i like alot of people on this forum and actually think about you doing the day and say to myself ' i wonder how shes getting along today??'

    to summarise - i tried to stay away and just couldnt do it!!!!

    Well done on 22 days angela - wow!! Dont worry about the number of posts you write.I lurk alot because alot of the posts that i read are about problems that i havent gone through so theres not really much advice i can give. As long as this forum is helping you thats whats importants. Stay strong.

    Amy xx
