In the words of the late, great Michael Jackson....
'hee hooooo..........shum awwnnnn '
Day 2 of my quit has well and truly hit the canvass
Even had a job interview today....which would normally justify at least a rush of an extra 4-5 fags, minutes before the interview and then manically munching XXX Mints, so that you don't stink of dirty cigarette smoke (yuck...) during the interview lol but no way Mr Nicodemon.... easily ducked that punch !
Got up this morning and thought I wanted a fag first thing with my cuppa but then decided it was a hunger pang, not a crave and so I actually ate some breakfast for the first time in many years ! Normal breaky would be coffee +2/3 ciggies + more coffee !
Again throughout the day the odd 'I'm missing or not done something' feeling but no real craves (thanks Mr Champix) and I've ate all my toffee bon bons so I've moved onto pear drops. They're alright...... but the roof of my mouth is sore after sucking about 15 throughout the day, note to self: need something a bit softer. I also found a glass of cold tap water helps wash away any 'my mouth is missing something' thoughts (another great forum tip)
I must admit that when I got back in the car following my interview I automatically fumbled around on the passenger seat for my fag packet....
Then I remembered 'I don't smoke anymore, that’s why you can't find the packet' lol.... and pear drop no 10 found itself being sacrificed instead.
(a momentary lapse of concentration)
Overall, a successful Day 2 Dare I say easier than I expected, similar to yesterday really ? Had a few visits to the board throughout the day to top up the quit stamina and noticed a few people reporting 'difficult days' which encourages me to 'keep my guard up' and not become complacent ?
The old tune.....'there may be trouble ahead' springs to mind ? but I feel like a lean mean fightin' machine at the mo, so I'm off to bed now to re-charge the batteries, ready and waiting to hear that bell go….. Bring On Round 3
COME ON MR NICODEAMON IF YER THINK YOUR HARD ENOUGH !!!
p.s Thanks to all, for the replies and words of encouragement from my Day 1 posting. I can’t believe anyone would read through all my blaa blaa ….. lol I’ll have to shorten my daily updates, sorry ! :rolleyes:
