I am glad you worked through the crave.

If I get angry and the thought of smoking enters my head, I remove myself from the situation if possible, or take 3 deep breaths and pretend I am blowing the stress out. Every day I remind myself that one cigarette will lead to 100's if not a 1000 more.


Luckily nothing has annoyed me too much as of yet.

Dont give in it wouldnt be worth it your doing too well, be strong.:)


For the first time in 14 days like you today I could have/missed a fag. Had a s**t day at work withy s****y people knowing I had an interview to go for this afternoon. Not an easy general chit chat interview but one of those real testy ones lol. Never had one before so was worried about that as I really want this job & know I am more than capable but could blow it in the interview. I did think about the fact that normally I would have had a fag to calm my nerves but not too many as who wants to go into an interview reeking of fags. Then the thought of when you come out & relieved it is over smoking a good couple one after the other :eek:

I didn't & haven't but the notion was there. Just a thought I guess of what I used to do. Still not a crave or want just a remembrance, does that make any sense?

How did the interview go Gaynor??
