I am in trouble

Hi guys,

Don't feel very good, had too much work lately plus had a fierce fight with one of my colleagues and some other problems.

Feeling angry and nervous plus maybe a little depressed before another lonely Frida night and can't stop thinking about smoking.

Plus I am going to be 6 months quit on Monday and feel like come on you have to keep it up at least until Monday and this is pressuring me further.

Don't know what I'll do .....

  • I know what you will do, you want smoke, the major milestones like first month 3 months 6 months and 12 months they are all very exciting but also I can honestly say that I was so scared and edgy just before I was lucky enough to reach one of these major events, I think possibly we get over excited LOL and maybe afraid that we will let ourselves down, just a couople more days and you will have managed something sadly a lot of quitters find hard to manage but I know you will, lots of goodies and plent of really iced water to sip on.

    Come on here and rant you will get there.

    Been there, read the book, wore the t-shirt and starred in the film ;)

    We all handle pressure differently so you should get varying suggestions on what to do.

    First thing, DON'T SMOKE, ok so that's easier said than done when you're very very stressed (i know) but try and think of that cigarette that you're considering on having as that colleague you had a fierce fight with.

    If you smoke the cigarette then that's the equivalent of your colleague winning, is that what you want?, no way!:mad:

    Next step, get out on your bike, go to the gym, go for a jog and just a very brisk walk to the shops (for some sweeties!), in fact any type of exercise.

    The exercise will help relieve some of the stress that's built up and should take any cravings away..........and kept ranting on here if you need to, we're all in the same battle so know what you're going through and will help and support you all we can :D

  • Hi Ninetails,

    Please, PLEASE don't blow a six month quit :eek: I only had a 50 day quit and was absolutely devastated when I caved in, just because life circumstances became, well, almost impossible. But smoking didn't put things right, just made everything worse :( I have reset my quit for Sunday, but meanwhile, I don't want you to suffer the pain and misery I went through when I smoked again. My lungs feel awful, I cried buckets because I crashed, it was so bad.

    So please stay strong, cos six months is really awesome, wish I could do that :cool:

    Thinking of you and take care of yourself,

    Hey Ninetails

    Sounds like a little bit of self-sabotage to me. :confused: I'm sure the fact that this is happening so close to your six months is no coincidence. But please don't give in to it - you'd have to be nuts to give up what you have achieved.

    Revisit some of those techniques that have helped you to get this far - I'm sure that in a few days, you will feel less vulnerable. Good luck.

  • HIya Ninetails

    Please dont give in, people like you are the ones that spur me on and make me believe I can beat this addiction.

    If you really, really want one tell yourself that if you feel the same tomorow you will have one then, then do the same tomorow lol. Do anything just please dont let the addict inside of you win.

  • Hello all,

    I bought a pack yesterday and decided to smoke if another bad thing happens, but nothing did so I will be giving the pack to a smoking colleague instead.

    The smoking desire is gone now and I feel like I wanted to smoke to punish other people (idk if that sounds weird)

    Thanks for the help I am pretty sure I'll make it to Monday and hit the 6 months mark :)

    Cheers

    Nine
