Days 5 and 6 - hanging on!

Hi folks,

Still here and still hanging on.

Yesterday was my first very big test and have passed it with flying colours - previously, when travelling to set, the first thing that I did when getting in the car was to light up and used to keep on smoking until I got there - my antedote to a very grumpy Satnav!!!!

So, to overcome this one, (I have stopped using the patches btw - too much hassle and not really needed so am going cold turkey-ish) I had a packet of niquitin minis. Never again. They gave me the most painful acid indigestion I have ever had and that was with one!

On set, nearly everyone smokes so I thought I would be in a right pickle, but surprisingly, it really didn;t bother me at all. I went armed with a packet of Russian fags, which are vile, as back up - psychological - if I have them, I would not be dashing off to the shops to buy them and therefore by having them, I wouldn't want them anyway - hope that makes some kind of sense!

My cravings are at their worst first thing in the morning and last thing at night and so long as I can keep busy, then the ones in the day aren't quite so bad now, although there is a kind of constant feeling of something missing.

I am sleeping really well and seem to be tired at the right times! I am (skip this if you are of a delicate nature) bringing up some really vile stuff which actually strengthens my resolve as I don't want to be having that on my lungs.

So, here I am at day 6 - a place I really didn't think I would get to! Only 1 more day to make it a week and if I get that far, my husband has promised to clean out my car for me, amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
