2 months last night :/

I'm having a really hard time at the moment, thinking a lot about smoking. I nearly gave in today a bought a pack.

8 weeks down and I don't want to throw that away. Today was actually one of the hardest days I've had so far. Maybe it caught me off guard. I suspect something deeper might be going on too...I think I might be associating smoking with happier/funner times on some level...even though then weren't...or maybe the nicotine is having a last ditch fight as i keep moving further away from my last smoke.

I dunno. Anyone else having a tough time around 2 months?

    absolutely its the nicotine have a last attempt it is tough near the beginning and i still have a bad day here and there even now

    you are absolutely right in your post and have summed up exactly why its happening to you its good you can combat this feeling because you know why its happening.

    its your brain trying to trick you that it was happier times wen u smoked it wasnt at all its just trying to trick you

    keep strong it will pass and get easier

  • Hey thanks so much for the reply :) and the supportive words.

    I'm feeling better now and more positive. More like my usual self. I also noticed I ate a lot of junk food this weekend/high sugar foods. I think this messes a bit with me too. Healthy eating seems to be the way to go. Anyway it is Monday tomorrow so I will start again with the healthy eating plan.

    Main thing is I got through another weekend without smoking!

  • well done sammy23 for reaching 2 months and you have come too far to throw it all away i am sure it will get easier,i have been stopped 2 months today and i can relate to how you are feeling but i have not been on here that often as i do not want to put others off as i have found it extremely hard and yet my husband who stopped at the same time seems to be ok,like you i am thinking a lot about smoking and nearly tempted so are we at another stage that we just have to get over and i know we can,i have actually had to go back on the middle patch as i feel it is too early to go to the lowest i tried and it was too soon for me,so hope you have a better week to come and just think of all the hard work you have put in to get this far,good luck and keep going you are doing great!
