Day 13

Hi All,

Last ciggy was 13 days ago, been lingering in the shadows reading posts on this forum, which I have found really helpful in fighting off the cravings. Attempted to quit many, many times before, but usually the 2 week or the 2 month is my downfall, but I'm determined this time to go the whole way, just taking it one day at a time, and I'll deal with the cravings when I get there!! I usually am on patches but gave up on them on the first week, so going CT now, which actually feels better as I'm no longer relying on the nico demon.

I have my good days and then my bad, today I feel like I have two personalities fighting with each other just to have one last ciggy.

Goodluck to everyone else out there stay strong!!

Vic

    Stick with me Vic, I will drag you to smoke free land with me!

    The way I see it now, you have done 13 days, I have done 16 ... normally we probably both couldnt have gone an hour (guessing lol) without a fag ... so when you look at it like that ... we are amazing! And we DONT NEED THEM!

    Ive not had a craving for over a week !! And the one I did get today was very small and lasted literally 2 minutes! 2 minutes that could have ruined all my hard work! And I do have cigarettes here! My partner still smokes .. so I could have grabbed one, I could have lit it, I could have inhaled and become instanly stress free ... but it wouldnt have been stress free .. I would have freaked at myself!! I am soooooo glad I just let the 2 minutes pass me by ! If I can do it ... (after 17 years of smoking) then anyone can ! ! :) Sure other people may have smoked longer than that ... but for me, thats a lifetime, and if I can stop after a lifetime, then I rock! :) .. and so do you!
