Thanks for the support

I have been really struggling with my quit the last few days and last night i almost caved in. I thought i could deal with having rolling tobacco at home but it's not really helping. There's nothing i cannot do about it as my lass still smokes and i have to do the rolling for her.

My head is constantly banging on about having "just one" and the amount of food i'm munching through is ridiculous. Some mornings i wake up feeling liked i've smoked a load of fags the previous night. My mouth is dry and and i have a sore throat at the moment.

Anyway i just like to thank everyone for the good wishes i've received so far. I do feel a bit of a hypocrite offering support to other people on here and yet i can't deal with my own demons.It's a tough nut to crack this smoking malarkey but i have to do it as i'm turning 40 this year. I can't keep delaying quits or failing them.

The good news though is that my smoking CV says i have been smoke free for 12 days. :)

  • Hi Rogue, I can't imagine for a moment the amount of strength you have rolling for your girlfriend .. to me that was half the joy of actually smoking. Is she going to stop sometime soon too? Maybe if she has to roll her own she wouldn't be so keen to smoke them ;)

    Anyway you are doing so well .. I'm a week ahead of you and this time last week I was cracking up. My head is in a different place now and it's becoming merely a memory but think it was an important step to staying a non-smoker.

    Stick with it.

  • Hiya rogue. Well done on your twelve days, nearly two weeks then before you know it you'll have a month behind you. Keep on struggling while you have to, you don't want to waste that twelve days. Don't stop supporting other people in their quits, it will help you too. Keep at it mate. David

  • Rogue, you're doing really well!

    You made me laugh in that other thread when you said you didn't recommend SNUS. :D

    Here's the thing, now you have that in your signature you CAN'T fail. If you do, you'll give him more ammunition to work with.

    Keep at it, you'll get there, just say no one crave at a time. :cool:

  • Aww Rogue,

    I know what its like cos I could easily have caved on my 14th day it was soooo bad. But the cavalry on here saved me and I came through, and it feels so good when you do :D

    We are all gonna have struggles ahead, but we can do this.

    I wouldn't like to have to roll cigs for someone else at the mo :mad: can't your girlfriend do it herself???? She does owe you some consideration for what you are going through.

    The 'just one' idea defo doesn't work, you know that, and don't worry about the food - I am turning into 'Little Rocky's Shop of Horrors' lol, FEED ME :eek:

    And sore throats are par for the course at this stage.

    So keep on keeping on mate, you are doing so well, we all are. Lol you nearly into week 3 already ;)

  • Rogue, it's hard at 2-3 weeks, you have to hang tough now. One day at a time. It can be done, you just have to keep focused. Don't listen to your inner junkie, he knows he's being beaten and he's going to pull out all the stops, but recognise him for what he is - ugly, wheedling, dependent, pathetic - and breathe deep!!

    Do you have to roll your gf's fags for her? Can't you buy her a rolling machine or something? Apologies to her if there's a physical reason why she can't do it - but otherwise, she really needs to be more considerate. As a rollie smoker I could *not* have done that in the early days of my quit, it would have driven me do-lally.

    Keep on keeping on, you can do this!

  • Why do you have to keep doing the rolling for your girlfriend?

    I think you must be really strong to have got this far. I honestly couldn't deal with cigarettes/tobacco in the house myself so you're doing brilliant in my book.

    As for food I hear you. I've put on a ridiculous amount of weight in the last month. I tried to suffocate that voice saying to have one with clotted cream scones, crisps, ice-cream and sweets :D Yes I'm pregnant but I'm not meant to be eating for ten. Back to the celery and carrot sticks for me!!

    Really though at 37 days I have noticed a huge different in intensity of cravings so just keep your head held high, keep saying no and don't let this beat you. You can do it!!

    I feel your pain am in Day 3 of my quit and my other half smokes (tho not rollies granted!) and although he is being very good at not smoking in front of me its still causing me to have the toughest day today.

    This helped me with this - whenever you roll a smoke for your lass get a straw cut in half and use it like a smoke while she has hers might make it a little more bareable.

    Keep going and stay focused and you will get there!

    Congrats on 12 days :) I really don't know how you can be rolling your gf's cigs, I hate roll ups but the thought of being around tobacco :eek: You must be a strong person... I'm feeling the same as you in the mornings, sore throat, like i've smoked loads - i've heard this is the throat repairing it's self which I get proper excited about :D

    Keep going, it can only get better,

    Denise :)
