I honestly thought I would never make it to day 2 after so many failed day 1's. The daytimes have been fine but for those that have been supporting me will know that the evenings have been getting the better of me.
Last night I just said no, im not doing it and it made it easier. It just took more focus and it wasnt that bad.
I also read 40% of the Allan Car book which was really helpful. It helped to put things in to persepetive and was quite a wake up call too. I particulalry like the bit about smokers "pretending" they liked smoking. He said that he says to people that if they give him the cash equivelant of 1 years smoking he will supply them with cigs forever. Surprisingly not one person has taken him up on the offer. Why not? if they enjoy it and want to do it forever why wouldnt they? its the deal of the century!
Anyway, being on day 2 is a real buzz for me. I was a doubter and nearly quit quitting but stuck with it and i am so chuffing chuffed and i can see the beginnings of a clear path ahead. I am not naive and know I have by no means cracked this and need to keep on my guard for a long time. I am also expecting the most difficult mental struggles too. But for now its all about the moment and getting through the next hour and day.
