3 rough days in a row

What gives? from what I have read it seems most people experience a bad day one day then good the next and it gradually improves. I haven’t read any post of someone with three bad days in a row other than those in the first three days or week. I'm on day 12 and I haven’t even been sneaking any or cheating. If I did at least I would know why I felt so tense.

This is so annoying and I hope tomorrow will be better

  • You must have done something really bad in a previous life Sparky :D

    I don't know what to say except turn the negative into a positive.

    Despite having 3 bad days in a row you are STILL a non smoker!

    Perhaps in the past you would have crumbled and lit up, but not this time. Not this quit.

    Congratulate yourself for making it through the rough times because it will get better and despite the cravings throwing everything they've got at you, you still haven't folded.

    Well done and keep it up! :D

  • Hey Sparky,

    Sorry to hear that its been tough. Stay as mentally positive as possible.

    Are you taken any vitamins? This will help you feel a boost. Lots of Vitamin C and B vitamins :)

  • Sparky, I totally feel for you, Ive had a horrible 2 days and this is the 3rd morning ive woken up with a "black cloud" hanging over me :(

    Karri is right, with me feeling so bad this time I am confident I dont want to go through this ever again.

    Im away to write a list of all the positives im gaining for not smoking and re-read some stories on whyquit.com to see if that helps me.

    Hope your better today Sparky

  • Come on Sparky, think positively!

    1- you are STILL not smoking, despote 3 crap days

    2- you have the support of everyone on here

    3- you have me to nag you to death on FB.

    What more could you want?!?:eek:

    In all seriousness though, i think sometimes its just a case of gritting your teeth and bare it!

    I know i had a run of several days early in my quit when i found it really hard. So you are not alone.

  • felic- Luckily the black clouds only hung around for a few days. Today was a great day for me and hopefully for you as well.

    I like you idea of a reward / gift for yourself at the end of the month as you much deserve one for not smoking.

    For me I get a better feeling by helping or doing for others. The money I saved not smoking last week I used to buy dinner for some people I had met at a local restaurant while waiting for a table. After talking to them for a while I could see they needed a little pick me up so I asked the waitress for their check. If you could have seen how happy and grateful they were. I didn’t realize that the waitress was going to go running over to their table to tell them what I had just done and I wish she didn’t but it truly was priceless.

  • I feel for you Sparky. I'm the same, on Day12, no improvement. So tough to keep going.

  • Wow Sparky, that is Awesome, It's things like that, that come back 10 fold my friend ;)

  • ugh,

    I don't understand how to use the quote thing

  • :eek: You NEED to treat yourself too :eek:

    I did treat myself - to a cougar :D I met her on the site Kitkat posted earlier in the week. I attached a picture just incase you missed it earlier. Isn't she great ?

  • LOL. That's a woman?

  • LOL. That's a woman?

    I'm almost positive. I haven't been able to talk myself into checking yet

  • the person in that picture has the longest fingers I've ever seen. lol

  • No comment from me on that - Its a clean forum :D

  • I think very good....

  • If you drop the soap in the shower stand your ground :D

    wow Karri not the kind of comment I was expecting to see this morning - that’s too funny.

    Anyway- When I walked into the bathroom to check on her this morning this is what I saw :eek::eek::eek:

    Now either she’s a he or she’s got some real talent - peeing in the shower - gross

    No more cougar sites for me - lol

  • I know its a clean forum but just out of interest... is it normal for sex drive to be going through the roof when u quit?

    I don't know the answer to that, but if it's true I'm going to get my wife to start smoking and then get her to quit! :p :D :D :D

  • I don't know the answer to that, but if it's true I'm going to get my wife to start smoking and then get her to quit! :p :D :D :D

    Capitan - I'm not so sure that will work. Once they become a wife they stop all that stuff smoking or not. You may have better luck helping a stranger quit smoking - here I picked one out for you

  • Hmm. I bet she stinks, though....

  • I can overlook the stink. I wouldn't want to be a hypocrite non smoker - lol

  • *Walks in and decides it's sounding a bit Blokey in here*

  • CONGRATULATIONS on being a NON-SMOKER![/B

    Try to stay positive and let your mind take control of those depressing feelings...Think "yay I am happy I am a non-smoker!" instead of "Maybe I should just smoke so I can feel normal again" There is nothing normal about being a drug addict and nicotine is a drug addiction, The cravings and depression is a way of showing you that your body is getting rid of that addiction so rejoice in that fact.

    WELL DONE:)YOU CAN DO IT!
