Hello all, well what a little (or rather big, after all the extra scoffing) cheat I've been! I've been going to a quit clinic for nearly 3 weeks and have had 10 fags throughout but I've omitted to tell the quit nurse :o. I have a 4yr old daughter & we live on our own. When I was smoking and I wanted 5mins to myself I would just nip outside and have a cig and the one at the end of the day when DD went to bed was the best. I'm really missing those. I've been on the patches, which are ok. I've tried the tabs, spray & inhalator but can't stand any of them cos they pack too much of a nicotine punch. I smoked menthol cigs and think I quite liked them, although a few Allan Carr die-hards are telling me I didn't really! I don't seem to have any time-out mechanisms at home from DD (love her to bits but she really knows which buttons to press when I'm feeling low). If I've told her off or taken something off her (punishment) and she's wailing at me for being unfair and screaming that she's not going to be my friend anymore I don't seem to have anywhere to go cos she follows me from room to room!!! How do people get through these times? Why am I so crap at this and where's my bloody willpower? Why can't I stop eating, I've normally got skin as thick as a rhino, now I've just got an arse like one! :eek:
