Day 8

I can now get on with really productive work now without looking for my ciggies reward . I was really avoiding doing much before . I am much more focused also . Gosh I cannot believe how I was like a zombie in the first few days . I think of that series that is on tv just now - 'The living dead ' or something like that and think I was like that . I would sit for ages on a Sat. morn. 2 coffees 5 ciggies and thinking about what I was going to do first . It would be 11.30 am before I moved off the sofa !!! On Sunday there I got up had my tea ,stuck on my patch put the tv on for a bit ,while I was drinking my tea ,bran flakes . I then made a cheese sauce for the lasagne I started the day before . Got washed and ready for Church, after Church picked my newly stopped smoking son ,had lunch and then did some gardening ! AMAZING !!! Okay still think about ciggies ,but I get rid off it as soon as I can and pop a losenge /nic.gum . I used to think I was tired and old and cannot do the things I used to - RUBBISH!! The fags stole my energy and my joy !

  • Hiya, I know exactly what you mean about fags stealing your energy, that is EXACTLY how I have felt these last few days. Everyone I have sucks more life out of me :( Good for you for getting on with your quit & beating it. Just remeber how they make you feel if you have a 'moment' or dark day. That will see you through :D

  • It is strange isn't it Nofagannie.

    I could sit myself at my desk at home, infront of the laptop on facebook. Fags, lighter, ashtray and a can of coke to hand and not move for literally...hours.

    I would smoke so much that i felt sick but still thought i 'needed' them. And the crazy thing being. I could drink can after can of coke.

    Why? To get rid of the taste of fags.

    How stupid does it all sound now?! :rolleyes:

    Since starting my quit i have had so much time. I have to keep myself busy to forgot and with so much time i am constantly shattered lol.

    Keep up the good work, you are doing so well. They all say one step at a time but it's fun discovering all the strange things we used to take for granted.

    YES ! tOO TRUE ! I was smoking that much that I was starting to wretch in the morning . On one occasion when I was driving ,I had to pull in to a lay by to actually be sick . I was coughing and I just started to vomit .I quickly opened the car door ,and I thought God what is wrong with me ! But I knew what was wrong with me !
