10 Weeks (In the Right Month This Time!)

Oh dear, I sometimes worry that if I had a brain I'd be dangerous! :D I managed to put the post below in the wrong room yesterday - posted in Month 2 instead of Month 3!!

Hello All

Hope everyone is doing well in their quits, and having slightly better weather, depending on where you live of course.

Well, here I am on Day 71, having now completed 70 days, a full 10 weeks, as of last night. It feels like quite a big milestone, and I have to say, the last week has indeed become noticeably easier. :-)

I will reach 12 weeks in a couple of weeks' time, when I will actually have just arrived abroad on holiday, and will be still be away when I complete 3 calendar months on 7 July. I'm not feeling nervous about a holiday without cigs, I'm really looking forward to it, hence the positive assumptions above. So that's all nice and cheery, something to celebrate whilst I'm away, except ...

How on earth I've managed to time my quit/holiday with a 'Significant 3' I've no idea. Anyway, that's what I've been dealt, and that little thought has made me a bit nervous that I might feel awful whilst I'm on holiday and clearly I'd rather that wasn't the case! So I'm already starting to focus my brain in readiness! I'm telling myself that I will be fine, I won't crave badly, I won't feel dreadful and I will definitely enjoy my holiday even more as a non smoker.

Ongong congratulations and good luck to all.

    Shazza well done so far you are doing great.

    Just forget all this "3's" rubbish. Its all a load of claptrap.

    If you believe you are going to struggle because its 3 O'clock, 3rd day, week, month then you probably will.

    Just see it for what it is and thats just another day like yesdterday or a day last week or whatever. The 3's only exsist in your head because someone has said the exsist.

    Kick the 3's into touch and you will be fine.

    Enjoy the holiday

  • H - don't be bashful, say what you mean! ;)

    Seriously though, will do as instructed. I think I was just seeking a bit of reassurance. As long as I decide I'll be fine, I will - mind over matter! :D

    Cheers, Shazza

    Yes just looked at it again and I suppose I was sitting on the fence a bit ha ha

  • I may have replied to this when you posted in the wrong month but never mind. Very well done you are doing great with your quit and always so positive. I have to admit the holiday thing really worries me. I have been quit 19 weeks now and I just keep putting off booking a holiday because I have a niggling doubt in my mind that I will find it hard? You will have to tell us when you get back how you found it. I am so glad it is not worrying you and I dont know why I feel like this.:confused:

  • Will let you know how I get on. I fedel a bit :eek: but hopefully it will be :):D
