Day 5...wish it wasn't sunny

I wish it wasn't sunny out there. With that grey, rainy weather it felt ok to hide indoors and watch tv or go to bed early.

Day 5 is quite hard. I've done very little work today and can't concentrate.

I'm a bit nervous about the weekend..I live alone and smoking made me feel a bit less lonely. Which is a ridiculous statement and NOT true really...I've had loads of lonely moments with a fag in my hand.

As all you wise people said yesterday its a period of adjustment to my new life and things may not all fall into place easily.

I might be posting alot over the next 2 days....

  • HI Elizabeth, Ive been just the same lol. However I have found that if I just go out and have a walk round town I feel so proud of myself when I see all the smokers having to gather in little groups outside places to have the fix that I sometimes feel I need so much.

    Enjoy the tie in your own home, take the time to smell how lovely and clean it is now, no ciggy smoke hanging in the air. Ive been cooking a lot, all healthy home made meals and that takes my mind off it.

    You said yesterday that you would never catch me up, lets do this together, lets go up the table until we reach the penthouse.

    Always here if you need help.

  • Hey there Lillie, thank you!

    I'll tell you what, now my sense of smell has returned a bit or the the smoke smell has finally gone...I've realised this room I'm sitting in smells of damp!!!

    Great!

    YES, we CAN do this. We can! I'm feeling better now I'm home

    Going to do some gardening tomorrow, have to go to the shops to buy a present. I've bought lots of magazines and there's always my impossible jigsaw (yes, that's right...I'm doing a very complicated and adult jigsaw! Don't tell anyone)

    Hope you're feeling good today

  • Hey Lizzie,

    Post as much as you feel like if it helps you, I certainly did/do :)

    Maybe you could knit zoemac's cat so both of your hands are kept busy? :D

    Well done on your progress so far :)

    The thing that helped me most in my first days (apart from the first two when I could't move) was the fact that it WAS sunny, cos by Day 3 I was crazy and needed to walk off my stress!! But I was lucky, there were some nice, hot days and I could walk around the park and get some fresh air! And the excersise did me good and relaxed me! My concentration was so bad I couldn't have watched tv anyway! I live alone too, but I LOVE the weekends, as there is so much less pressure, nobody to hassle me and my time is my own. Day 5 was a terrible day for me too, but I got through it with the help of this forum, and by the time I had got to Week 1 things got better. I now have more than one good day at a time which I didn't expect. Okay so I have had a few horrifying days as well, but that seems par for the course, and I know if I can get through one I can get through another. Nobody ever said it was supposed to be easy. So stay strong and post on here as much as you need to.

  • Jen that cat is bugging me now:confused:

    Maybe you could knit zoemac's cat so both of your hands are kept busy?

    Why am I feeling guilty for not knitting a cat that does not exist, has no feelings etc, etc, etc, oh eck I think the blooming thing is real and will haunt me if I don't knit it back to life:eek: am losing the plot:(

    Please tell me it's only the Champix....

    Zoe

  • Thank you everybody. You're all keeping me on the right track.

    Sadly Jen I can't knit (my mother never taught me anything useful)

    ...so Zoe, come on knit that cat...what harm can it do???!!
