A sunny day and a better day!

Oh I feel much better today! No craves and no anger bursts. I walked youngest son to school, did a wee bit of shopping then went the gym . I did a zumba class and a pilates class. Zumba was fun but Pilates teacher seemed a bit sadistic!

I am tired but so much happier than yesterday. It is certainly easier to walk this path with a smile on your face.

  • Wish i felt the same Ellie :(

    Craves been bad for 2 days now :mad:

  • Oh dear, Pete. I hope the craves subside soon. Bad days are such a trial.

  • Ellie, Glad the Zumba went well!

    Today is a lovely day, you can almost see a wee hint of spring, although still cold.

    PETE, is there noone you can talk to? I find when i talk about it, you get so fed up talking about to other people you just want to think about somthing else.

    Also if you are finding it really really hard,how about speaking to a smoking nurse and maybe changing your strategy?

  • I've taken up the harmonica Carol to keep my mind and fingers occupied.

    I can now play "On top of old smokey", "Twinkle Twinkle little Star" and "Good Night Ladies" but that "Frere Jacdques" always out of tune, damn the French :mad:

  • Ellie - so glad you're happier! Zumba sounds scary! I imagine lots of drums and sweaty Amazonian women :D

    Pete - hang in there. I had the most awful day yesterday, I was climbing the walls - not what I expected after nearly a month. Don't know why exactly, but I think it was the 'this is forever, I'm not strong enough' feeling, it just overwhelmed me.

    We just have to hold firm and believe people further down the road who tell us that this too shall pass. I'm feeling so much better today, its a huge relief. I hope tomorrow's a better day for you.

  • Zumba was scary, Hels! I felt like I had 2 left feet and then pulled a muscle. But it did make me laugh.

    I have had a very productive day so far. All my ironing is nearly finished. I plan to clear up the garden when it warms up. I am hoping to some digging at the weekend, pulled muscle permitting.

    DH is home and the smell of smoke is back. I am coping well with it. I think I have finally grasped that this is my quit and I need to take ownership of it. If DH decides to stop in the future, that will be a bonus.

    I feel so much happier in myself. I was much lower when I was smoking. I think I lot of it is to do with the fact I have more energy and I sit down less.

    Anyway, the sun is shine and I have not had a cigarette for 17 days and that makes me very happy.

  • well done ellie :) on staying so positive could feel the energy coming through with the read shame we cant bottle the excess energy and save it for the times we really need it :rolleyes:

    hells it will get better some attacks are stronger/worse then others just remember its the nicorette demon trying anything it can to throw at you to tempt you back :eek: and i know so many people that have been stopped for over 20 years including my mum who still have the rare craving she said its like a switch suddenly going of inside her head (i need a ciggy) but she dont listen and it passes i think that applies to all addicts regardless of whatever poision they are addicted to or how long they have been without

    but regardless of how long it is in between cravings you just have to remember why you choose not to smoke anymore and think positive thoughts
