Day 5 - cranky biaatch!

Good Morning my fellow NON SMOKERS! ;)

On a positive note, ive made it to day 5 without one puff on a ciggy so thats good i guess!

I got so stressed out yesterday because i woke up and went downstairs to find both my mum & my boyfriend puffing away in the kitchen, as soon as they saw me they went outside but thats not the point is it?!

How can they do that to me?!!

Anyways, i went out to the shop and bought one of them electronic fag things. After ide opened it and had a puff (didnt feel anything!!), i read that it had nicotine in it! :(

Does this mean i have to start my days all over again because ive had nicotine?! Im so so dissapointed in myself that i feel like if i have to start again, i might aswell just start smoking again!!

This morning im feeling very low, angry, sarcastic and very bi-tc-hy! One minute i want to punch a coleague in the face and the next i want to curl up under my desk and cry!

Grrrrrrr....! :mad:

(plus im hungry and i forgot my frosted shreddies!)

  • Hi!

    That definately doesnt mean you need to start again. It's is NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) and is a substitute for smoking to help control the withdrawal/cravings.

    Plus, it doesnt have any of the harmful chemicals cigarettes have.

    I have used a nicotine inhaler for those moments when I have really needed something, but those moments are becoming less and less frequent as time goes on.

    So stay positive, and if you want to be bitch, then go for it!!! :D

  • Hi Littlevix, No you wont have to start over its only a an elctro cig, they are not harmful. I know whre your coming from with the sarcastic and bitchyness I was like that yesterday and very emotional, today on day 11 not feeling to bad at the moment. Try and be strong I know its difficult because if it was easy we would have all given up just like that.

    We are all here for each other read more posts, or even eat loads of chocolate, go for a brisk walk. Fags are not the answer to any problem. So please carry on your quit as normal. Sendin (((hugs)). Jacqui

  • Pheww..

    Well thank god for that!

    I got so depressed thinking i would have to start all over again! PHEWWW...!!

    That doesnt mean that im going to puff on this thing like my life depends on it.

    Maybe a sausage, bacon and cheese toasty will make me feel even more happy! ;)

    Feeling positive again now.. THANKS!

  • Bacon sausage and cheese toastie sure sounds nice!! I'm gonna see if we have cheese in when I go home now, I fancy a cheese toastie lol

    You can get fake cigs without the nicotine replacement in ya know? Either the electro ones or just a little plastic thing with a flavouring refil from savers/tesco. They're only £2.99, not sure about the electro one though.

    Bet the electro ones work out pretty expensive when you're buying new cartridges all the time

    Oh, really? Do you know what these are called? Ive also been told to try herbal ciggies?! Unsure tho.

    And hell yeah they are expensive! Mine was £6.99 and it gives you 25 fags worth! I used to pay £8.00 for a 50g pouch so its more expensive than buying tobacco!! :eek:

  • Omg i read this post and my face fell

    NOO DONT GIVE UP!!!

    I use electronic cigerettes to quit - it's not the same at all!!!

    Keep going on :) don't let these hiccups upset you, stay strongg x

    I'm not sure what they're called exactly but they're just a plastic thing that looks the same as a cig, and when you have a go they have a taste kind of like tobacco but more pleasent. You will know what I mean when you see them, do you have a savers shop in town? Or tesco? They are near the stop smoking stuff like patches and lozenges etc, and they have no nicotine in them its literally just the taste to help with cravings. The reffils for them are only 99p too. Worth a go! Xx

    Oh and the herbal ciggies, I've seen these on lloyds pharmacy. I dunno about these, you're still taking stuff into your lungs even if its clean compared to normal tobacco, so I probably wouldn't buy them. But at the same time you're not getting anything from them like nicotine, so they might work for some people. Sort of taking you off nicotine but still keeping the device there for the cravings? It could work I supposee :) you will have to try and then tell me lol

  • im being thick

    Im having real trouble trying to find these no nicotine plastic ciggy things?! Ive looked all over tesco website and all over the internet to try and find the name of them but im having no luck! :confused:

    Maybe im just being thick but the only thing i can seem to find is the E Cigs with the nicotine in them.

    Could someone be a gem and post a link to them if anyone can find them?!

    Thanks guys! xxxx

  • no nicotine fags from the 70s - can't get now for some reason :)
