ive made it to day 5

went out last night, i was offered cigs all night, i decided not to tell everyone i dont smoke anymore, only one friend in the group knows (as i know she supports me rather than trying to temp me back on them) anyway i just kept saying i dont fancy one, and i did it. this is one of the big ones for me i'm so proud of myself if i can handle this im sure i can handle anything. Oh i i decided to go outside with them, only because i was so hot and it doesnt smell too fresh in the clubs haha.

is it smell you start to get back? as ive noticed the dog smell in my house which i never noticed before (i do have a dog :p)

  • Well done for resisting - although has it occurred to you that as you haven't come clean with your friends and keep saying you 'don't fancy one', they might suspect you're pregnant?!? :D

    Big congratulations, Caz. That was a tough test and you did it!!!!

    Keep on keeping on,

    Hel x

  • Oh and yes, my sense of smell changed radically very soon after my quit. Sometimes that's a good thing (spring blossoms, good food) and sometimes not so much (other people's smoky stench, cat farts).

  • haha! so not looking forward to when my dog lets one rip then ewww

  • Now your sense of smell is returning -you will notice how your friends smell when they return after a ciggie outside!! It is sooooo strong -Stale ashtrays spring to mind!!.

    Do you want to smell like that again!! Cos believe me -you did!! We all did -but could not smell it on ourselves!!

    Also -word of warning -you coped with not smoking with friends - am impressed with you for that.

    However- It is still early days for you, so you are on a mental mission to achieve your goal.PLEASE PLEASE believe me- be prepared for THAT moment when your resolve is tested. Not today , maybe not tommorrow -but it will happen as you start to relax about the whole quitting process. DON'T GET COMPLACENT AND THINK YOU HAVE CRACKED IT!! It comes back to bite you when you least expect it!! ( Especially after alcohol!!)
