Never got this far before!

Day 21 has dawned, and I'm still (just about!) smoke free! Had a very definite wobble on Wednesday (tearful, fag in hand!), but managed to keep going.

Week 3 has always been the problem for me - that initial glow of pride has worn off, and it just feels like hard going. Up to now, I've always succumbed, so I'm feeling quite chuffed that I've broken that 3 week psychological barrier - or will have by the end of the day ;)

On the down side, hubby got made redundant yesterday, which is pretty rubbish really!! But, smoking won't help him get a new job, will it??? :)

Hoping that Week 4 will be better!!

  • well done sarah on making it nearly to the end of week 3,i think you have just to see that a fag will not change anything at all it will make things worse,well for a start it would financially and then you would be so mad at yourself,so keep going i am sure things will get better and before you know it you will be through another week,good luck and best wishes,

    Hi Sarah, you are not JUST ABOUT SMOKE FREE you ARE smoke free and I hope you have made it to tonight. Week three is one of the worst times one of he so called three's, day 3, week 3 and month 3. Month 3 is different it is a difficult time but in a different way.

    Get that glow of pride back because now you deserve it more than ever. Three weeks is a small step for mankind but a massive step for Sarah.

    Sarah don't use you husband being made reduntant as a excuse to smoke because if you do smoke because of this it will only be an excuse and not a reason. As you said your self it won't change the fact he has been made redundant, Im sorry this has happened. But it should not be a reason either I during my quit lost a sister, a brother, was dragged through court for months for somthing I did not do. Had problems with my daughter who was 15 at the time (No probs with her now). I also lost many hours of work around £4,500 in takings because of weather in the winters 2009-2010 and £6,000 in 2010-2011(I'm a driving instructor). I don't in any way want you to feel sorry for me because here I am now a non smoker. I'm just trying to say if I went through all that and still managed to stop, with your determination and wanting to you can stop smoking too.

    Sarah look at this it may help

  • I hope you didn't give in Sarah

    Hi Sarah,

    I really hope you didn't give in and have one, I am only on day 11 and it is reading the stories of people who have got passed that stage that keep me going :)

    I keep hearing about the 3's, can't really remember day 3 being any different to any of the other days when I first quit, I think I am still grumpy, tired and can't be bothered with anything, but I will keep going as you must.

    Good luck :)
