11 weeks and 5 days

Here I am more than 11 weeks into my quit. I cant quite believe it. I just wish I would get over feeling there is something missing. It hits me harder at the weekend. I dont know when this will stop or if it ever will. You know when you speak to some people who have been stopped for years and they say they still miss it? Surely it cant be this much? Not only that but I feel fat and I have to join slimming world on Monday just so that I dont pile the weight on ( as if I havent got enough to deal with) Oh well I hope I everyone has a great weekend and get the rest and relaxation we deserve after a week at work.

    I am just coming upto week 13 and I know what you mean about something missing. I found about 2 weeks ago that something just clicked. All of a sudden the missing a smoke, wanting one etc just stopped. Its like someone just flicked the switch. It does not bother me now to be round smokers, read about it or whatever. I just see myself as a non smoker who has no desire to smoke, who will not smoke and will not smoke again.

    Give it time it will come and you will be thinking what was all the fuss about.

    One word of warning. After 13 years quit I had just one. Followed by another, then another, then a packet etc etc. How many times have we heard that one.

    13 years!!! Just goes to show we are never safe. I bet you have learned from that. I am ok and doing good most of the time. I never want to smoke again that is fact! Just have a few niggles. Thanks for the post though and the word of warning. Enjoy you weekend!

    I'm glad i'm not the only one, it's driving me mad :mad: I don't want to smoke but like you I feel like something is missing, I just keep eating non stop & I don't want to keep thinking about cigs all the time when I don't want one - the brain is a mad thing isn't it :confused:

  • Hi Denise, the brain is a mad thing. I posted that about 2 weeks ago. I have been quit now for 14 weeks, if it is any consolation I dont feel that I am missing something as much anymore. At first I felt like I had lost a friend!!! I know ridiculous, but true. I smoked for 40 years so when you think about it we are giving up a lifelong habit, it is not going to be easy, but it is doable. You have done great you are at 2 months now and it will only get better for both of us.
