No Smoking Day

Day 6

I usually wait until dead on 9.15pm to write my daily thread but felt a bit down last night.

I cried for ages for no reason - actually thought I'd got away with all of that. Feeling more normal this morning so hopefully thats it.

Told all my mates off on here last night :rolleyes: I could almost see John, Dale and Sian all squeezed up on the naughty step hanging their heads in shame :D

So all in all not turning out to be the best day of the week.

Weirdest noticeable physical change - I have had a tiny mole on the edge of my lip for years. I know it's a mole because I went to the GP and she confirmed it was and told me it can't be removed as it's not a problem. I could get it done privately blah blah blah. Anyway I was a bit like this :eek: when I looked in the mirror. The so called mole has gone :eek: How can it just have disappeared. Obviously it wasn't a mole and was caused by smoking but how weird is that.

Well done for getting this far!!!!

In the early days you will feel very emotional but then the good feelings when you get to a milestone ie a week, month outweigh this.

Just keep going and the further you get the better you will feel. I just kept thinking to myself how dissapointed I would feel if I smoked and that got me through. As soon as you get a craving just try and think of something else. I used to talk to my cravings telling them to go away (people must of thought I was mad!!!)

It does get easier I promise. xxxx


*emailing from the naughty step* :D:D:D

Hi Hon

So sorry you were down yesterday, probably a combination of the no smoking and the horrid bug you've got. Fear not, you are not alone (hug) I cried over almost everything (Location, Location Location at one point - not the most emotionally charged prog on TV!!). It will go, although I have found that the crying/miserable thing has been more of an issue for me that the cravings!

As for telling us off. No you didn't, you just reminded us we're supposed to be grown-ups and that actually we were being a bit rude to Jack. So 3 cheers for you, and boo hiss to me, John and Sian. Mind you that John does have a big bottom, there's no room at all on this step!

I am so very very pleased for you that you're doing so well, and am routing for you 120%


Please can I get off this step now, bum getting a bit numb?:D

Glad I wasn't logged on last night when the telling off was happening cos I'm a right wimp, but really pleased you've made it to day 6 Karri, well done my lovely!

Did you check your bum for the missing mole? :D

Hi Karri

Sorry you are feeling down - good news is no one holds any grudges on here and it is the ideal place to sound off when you need too.

Hope you are feeling better today!! :D



Wasn't here last night, I went to bed at 9.30 ish :eek:

I could so use a burst of energy right now!

Anyway well done Karri, you are doing so well :D


No, I don't think so. I was feeling really sick so decided to go to bed but woke up every 30 mins feeling ill throughout the night. The when my alarm went off I didn't want to get up! I feel ok now though


You can do it Karri!

Looking forward to your day 7 post.
