i had to post!!

hello all!! it is now 1142 pm in new york so it is now 442 am for most of you i think..i am upset about something and have opened a bottle of wine and sooooo craving a smoke....the old me is saying "go ahead....just tonight and you can go right back to your quit tomorrow"

im not gonna lie as it sounds so good right now!!

i have been off these things for over 5 months now....do i need it? hell no i dont..do i want it? hell yes i do!! am i gonna do it??????

no i wont.....why? cuz i have worked to damn hard to get here and it is not worth having to go through withdrawels again...

nice try nicodemon...i will be strong and resist and feel better in the morning knowing that i didnt give in....

NEVER THINK YOU'VE GOT IT UNDER CONTROL FOREVER CUZ IT IS WHEN YOU THINK YOU DO THAT THE NASTY NICODEMON COMES BACK TO TRY TO ENTICE YOU BACK!! STAY STRONG ALL....IM GONNA DRINK SOME MORE AND CRY AND GO TO BED..ALL WILL BE BETTER TOMORROW IM SURE..TAKE CARE

    Great advice IAQ, keep battling...

  • Hey IAQ, sorry you're feeling down.

    We've all had days like this and they really do suck. I've sort of got used to it and almost expect the craving to rear its ugly head every now and then. But like you, the thought of going back to the start is a thousand times worse than anything a craving can throw at you. And we both know we've been through worse and come out smelling of roses (not stinky tobacco).

    Hope today is a better day and the hangover isn't too bad.

  • thank you all so much for your kind words and your encouragment:D

    i made it through and of course i am so happy that i resisted...i havent gotten a crave like that in months..but every time we make it w/out smoking we get stonger and know that we can do it...if WE CHOOSE TO!!

    i am just feeling a bit more sleepy than usual today...too much wine!!:p

  • Brilliant for resisting like you did-My Advice- tap into my sig(THIS SUMS UP EVERYTHING).Its there for a reason.Its there for an EMERGENCY.I quit before for 6 months and started smoking again.Why-.....I took a puff....etc.

    Best Wishes...douglas.j

  • Well done Chrissy, we're both coming up to 6 months next week and some of those cravings just jump out when you least expect it. They can be tough but by now we have the knowledge and commitment to fight them off (although sometimes are easier than others:rolleyes:).

    Stay with the New Year Quitters girl ;):D

  • thank you pete!! 6 months here we come:)
