2nd Week Done!!

Wow oh wow I have just completed Week 2 of operation NOSMO KING:D Don't know whether to laugh, cry or what to do!! Can't believe it. Me????

Anyways, I have an ice-cream in the freezer that I have been saving for today, and now I am allowed to eat it, yum haha. (Almond Magnum!!) AND gonna eat loads today heehee.

Can't believe I nearly through it all away yesterday just because of a stupid craving. Champix is all very well, but what saved me was all the support I got on this forum, not some stupid pill. I will never be able to thank you all enough for the help you gave me last night, but my gratitude is HUGE and big HUGS to all of you. Wish you were all here with me so we could have a party, but I know you are with me in spirit, so lets get this party started:D Longest I quit since I started smoking many, many years ago.

Can I feel proud of myself now?? I know there are pitfalls ahead and I will have difficult days, but just for today I am feeling groovy!!

Love to all,

Zoe:D

  • Can you feel proud of yourself? Absobloodylutely!!! We have felt your suffering at times, Zoe, but you have been strong and resiliant, and you have done it!

    Don't know if this will help you or not, but when I got to the two week stage, I deliberately "demoted" cravings to wants. I reasoned that after two weeks, and especially with Champix, they couldn't really be such a big deal. When they arrived, I started talking to them like silly children rather than letting them take over my day. This helped me to stop fixating and wallowing when I wanted to smoke - it just took a firm talking to and then I would get on with my day. The more I practiced this, the easier it got.

    Good luck on the next two weeks - you know you can do it!

  • Three cheer's for Zoe!

    Well done very very well done!

    and remember "Stay strong!"

  • Yeay you did it !!!! :D:D:D

    I'm so proud of you for getting through yesterday and reaching your 2 Week milestone.

    I can concur that this forum has done far more for me than the patches

    (I reserve the right to state that my inhilator has been as godsend at times too!)

    Keep up the good work and we will party with you in spirit !

  • Thanks guys an gals:D feels great. Next goal is to see doctor on Monday and tell him I not smoked. He will be happy, but maybe a bit jealous cos he still smokes. But maybe my quit will get him going?? Hope so cos he's a nice guy and I would hate to see him die young. Hopefully he will quit. He knows I am notoriously bad at giving up things, so will see if I can he can.
