Trafik Madness craving

Day 4:

Yesterday on the way from work got stuck in a huge trafik jam on the A35 into Poole. I can handle the trafik but it was the smokers 2 cars in front of me that really sent me mental.

Driver and passenger, I could smell the smoke, even when I closed my car windows I could still smell it. I wanted a fag right at that moment. Even thought about getting out the car and jogging up to their car and cadging a fag.

Then I thought about the taste in my mouth aftaward, the stink on my clothes and the feeling of disappointment that I'd given in. Worst of all the feeling of self loathing that I was a smoker again

  • Well done for not giving in Jimmer:) I had a bad craving yesterday when I saw a lady smoking in the park - it was 'Whoa I want one of those':eek: But so glad I didn't. And I thought afterwards that if I had a cigarette now after nearly a week it would probably blow my head off and wouldn't be the nice feeling I think I am missing. I think I am still idealizing cigarettes and not seeing smoking for what it really is. But these craves are so annoying:(

    Hope you have a good day today.

  • My Team Lead sits across from me and smokes like a "Lum" he's just come back from having one and he stinks. It's the smell for me, I don't ever wanna smell like that again, and probably the taste, makes me wanna puke.

    I think this is good and helpful

  • Well done on not giving in. I had that yesterday on the way home. Just came off the junction and passed cars on the other side trying to get onto the roundabout and suddenly got this whiff of smoke from someone on the other side.

    I don't mind that too much as I am a bit further on from you, but it did take me back to when I smoked :rolleyes:. We stopped smoking in the car before we decided to quit. I paid for the car to be professionally valeted. How embarrassing when the bloke took 3 hours and most of that was scraping the nicotine off the windows, which he politely mentioned :o

    So next time, just think about the thick nicotine coating in their car :D and the thick nicotine coating in your Team Leads lungs. Aren't you happy you don't smell like that;)

    Keep up the great work

  • Interestingly I've started to smell new smells, or maybe they were old forgotton smells.

    Like shopping in Asda last night and I caught a whif of something and realised for the 1st time in 5 years of shopping at that particular Asda, it was the shrubs or flowers planted around the shop.

    It felt great! or was that smelt great!

    Well done Jimmer

    Regained sense of smell isn't always good though. Since my quit, I haven't been able to go into my "proper" butchers shop - the smell of all that raw meat overwhelms me. I am now having to use the supermarket, where it's all packed up and odour free. It's enough that I've given up the fags, the last thing I need right now is having to become a frickin vegetarian aswell:eek:

    Definitely agree - I work in a city, and all I can seem to smell these days is the stinky alleyways (particularly after a weekend :eek:) and body odour on the bus!

    Although it's different where I live (suburbs), and I find myself sniffing like a puppy on its first outside walk!

    Well done jimmer for four days, and remaining stink-free! :)
