avoiding friends

today is my 4th day, i'm feeling pretty proud of myself

apart from the odd aggressive feeling i get, the smallest things irritate me

i'm using the nicotine minis and inhalator to help me quit

can anyone give me advice to help me get by as all my friends still smoke and nights out or spending days with them is getting pretty hard, to spend time with them when i feel like killing... haha :D

i dont think they are getting how angry i am feeling... i dont know if they are winding me up on purpose or if thats how they usually are and i just can't handle it right now, i have become a recluse this week :mad:

  • I'd say being a recluse just for a little while, until you are strong in your quit, isn't a bad idea.

    Thereafter, try not to get absolutely plastered in the early weeks, because that's practically fatal. And also, work on developing a nice powerful inner sense of superiority over the poor smokers who aren't as strong, as healthy, as monied or as sweet-smelling as you! You don't need to say anything, just feel good and smug on the inside :)

    Stay strong!

    My first evening was out with peeps and the sun was glorious and I was cross, only took a tenner out of cashpoint so I couldn't buy fags and only drank soft drinks.

    Went to work and then to dinner with a friend - non smoker of course

    Went to work and dinner with colleagues, non smokers

    Rest of the week I ran and went to gym until Saturday, stayed in pub as a**ehole friend went for a fag and made a show of lighting a fag - dick :cool:

    Was very angry at the beginning to as I was battling, thing is you need to get yourself back in the game when you are ready and strong. So if you need to avoid, do so. You know yourself.

    I had a plan, left early and didn't get tanked and went nowhere near anyone who smoked .... Have a think about what might happen and how you can aviod it, worked for me. Perhaps you do need to stay away for a while and if that is the case cool.
