Day 3 again - ignore my other posts LOL!

It's day 3 again. Deja vu.

It's early on in Day 3, just got up. I'm OK if tired as I only managed 5 hours sleep again last night (I s'pose 5 hours is better than nowt). Didn't really get a craving until about 15 minutes after waking which is amazing really as within 1 minute of waking I would normally be reaching for the cigarettes. Anyway, instead of giving in to wanting nicotine I just realised that I didn't have that grebby/snotty feeling that I usually get each time I wake...really nice, also my breath didn't stink. After thinking all the good things about waking up after three days without a cigarette my craving had passed.

Having a bit of a struggle with motivation these past three days....I tend to just sit around waiting for things to happen...silly bugger, I must move my arse. Anyone seen Beckysanders???? Keep up with the quit. XX

  • Matrix moment

    Cheers guys. It's so helpful being on here...we're all inspiring one another!

    Just had a matrix moment and thought I'd share.

    Smoking seems to me like the blue pill/red pill moment in the film The Matrix. For some reason one day (bad health, money etc) you come to the conclusion that you need to quit smoking, "the red pill/blue pill moment". Take the red pill and you break free of the matrix/smoking and see how far the rabbit hole goes, take the blue pill and you wake up in your bed carrying on living the same old life.

    I have come to this moment a few times over the years and so far every time I've chosen to take the blue pill even when I've mentally acknowledged that these ciggies are killing me....I've still taken the blue pill (crazee!) and still carried on smoking and being chained to the habit. It's been 2 years since the last "blue pill/red pill moment" and this time, I'm grabbing the red pill....and will see all you guys down the rabbithole in wonderland.

    I also just can't believe the length of time between red pill/blue pill moments either! Stay with the quit.

  • Dinnertime and the days unravelling!

    It'll be OK but I'm getting so irritated. Just had to walk out the house in a strop and walk around the block.... :(

  • Flies

    Nicotine cravings are like flies in your house....bloody annoying things. For days I've been trying to kill this one fly, bloody buzzing around right in yer face (I'm not jesting here). I just cornered it in conservatory with lavender furniture polish and a newspaper...the fly is dead. Hurrah! Sorry for any fly lovers out there.

  • Cheers guys...today was a bit trippy (but no chemicals involved LOL!).

    My dad came for a visit today and talking with him about smoking (he smoked for about 40 years and gave up 7 years ago), he gave me extra strength to see this through. So thanks to everyone on this forum, my dad, my supportive family and friends, and Allen Carr. No I haven't won an oscar but just saying my thanks.
