    thank you, the best thing ive heard this year.. i didn,t want to give up:mad: but i,m pregnant so i know i have to and its the right thing to do. what keeps me going is the image of myself breast feeding with a fag in my mouth....:eek: hope all is well for you today. x

  • Loopy, you're not alone. EVERYONE on here is at various points in the same journey. This is the place to be when you're finding it tough.

    I gave up both times I was pregnant - what really pisses me off is that as soon as both my boys were weaned I was like 'excellent, that's that finished with, now I deserve a fag'. Thought I could control it, but I couldn't. I only wish I had stuck with it then instead of carrying on poisoning myself for another ten years or so.

    Hang in there, you can do this. It's worth all the pain.

    I REALLY WANT A FAG!!!..... ive gone through 5 nicotine cartriges today.... its making me so depressed. I hate going out as this remines me of enjoying a fag, walking with one too. all i want to do is stay in bed. i,m not drinking enough fluids as when i do.... i want a fag!!! OMG...... is it really worth this crap????:mad::mad::mad:

  • yesyesyesyesyes. Yes it is.

    You have to get through this. Is there anything you can do that's a bit different, might take your mind off? Go see a film? Write a letter? Draw a picture? Go on youtube and see if you can learn some salsa steps or something?

    Whatever you do, try not to sit and stew in your yearning for a fag. I was like this (see my day 15 post) and I promise you it does get better.

    Don't lose heart. You can do this.

    YES IT IS WORTH IT :D

    Please hang on in there. As Helen says trying doing things in a different way or different order to what you did when you smoked. Hopefully you will break the association with them then. Try something new, anything but anything to take your mind of it. I spent hours reading on whyquit etc which made me more determined to stay quit.

    If you associate tea/coffee with having a fag drink something else for now. Keep your fluids up as this will help cleanse your body as well.

    It really does & will get easier & we are here to help you along.

  • Wingeing is good - smoking is not, so winge away :D

    Nice not having stained fingers & nails. Not very ladylike after all ;)

  • No worries. I'm having a bit of a cravey night myself. Three weeks in and I still struggle with them. But they're beatable.

    I have found playing Zuma Blitz on facebook is pleasantly addictive and gets me through the worst of them. That, and blueberry cheesecake left over from my birthday. :D

  • I am playing zuma blitz to whilst popping in & out of here :eek:

  • Hahaha! Run out of lives... check the message board.... play another few... check the message board...

    It's a really addictive game but I never get to the top of the board because there's a friend of mine in the US who must play it ALL THE TIME and scores about a million. Bah.

    Stand strong, you already have 11 miserable days in. If you don't then these 11 miserable days will have to be repeated someday!!!
