Demon Attack

Well I have been traveling very easily since my quit. Some temptations from week 3 onward but to be honest its been pretty easy.

Every time I have an attack of "The reason I quit is gone I could have just one" I remember that there is no such thing as one cigarette. Its none or a lifetime of smoking.

Tonight tried to mug me in a serious way while I was having a few glasses of wine. It was a sneaky thief. "Just one quick cigarette", "it'll be tasty", "you can do just one", "you're quit now".

No ! No ! No ! I'm not falling for the addiction demon and its sweet talking. I know that every smoker out there wishes they could be where I am now. Over 2 months quit. When I see smokers on the street I know they aren't enjoying what they're doing. They are just trying to quench that addiction for a few minutes to get some peace.

I say no to the addiction. Little demon you are just gasping you last breaths as I move towards the sweet 3 months of smoke free awesomeness. It knows I'm close to that point where I go weeks without consulting it about my life and its throwing on last ditch attempt to seduce me and well too bad it aint gunna happen !!!!!! See you all in a 9 months for my 1 year quit anniversary.

Of course I'll be polite and respond to any posts and all and come back to encourage everyone else but you get what I mean :)

  • Ha nice post!

    Just remember non smokers don't smoke so there's no need for the one.

  • Well said. We all have those times and it's nice to know that it happens so we can be prepared.

    Well done on getting so far.

  • 24 Days !!

    Nice post and I know exactly what you mean about "just one cigarette, surely I wll be able to handle it?"

    I had this yesterday whilst at a family BBQ with 90% of the people being smokers, it was difficult but I have learnt from previous attempts that just one cigarette for me and I will be smoking 20 a day, I am so proud of myself for getting through.

    One thing I have noticed though, is that I am seeing smokers as idiots and find myself being quite angry at my girlfriend who is still smoking, but the thing is it is not because I am jealous of her still smoking but I cannot stand the smell etc. When I smoked I used to hate people telling me I should quit or being made to feel like a 2nd class citizen. No I find myself thinking exactly the same as those people.

    Am I a hypocrite ?

  • Well said Ed:D

    And no frankbob you are not a hypocrite, you have just turned into a none-smoker so all you are feeling is normal. I am only on Day 11 but when I smell smoke on people I think euggh. Good feeling though:D


  • Thanks Zoe and well cone on 11 days, yes it is a good feeling, my mindset has changed dramtically and only in just over 3 weeks.

    So far my food tastes better, I have more energy, I sleep better and I have saved £140, we just need to keep going.
