Up's and downs

Hi all hope youre all achieving your own goals...:)

I'm struggling to get my head round the fact that one minute i'm doing really great and feelings so positive, infact more than positive i'm feeling like this is the best thing i've ever done and i'm so proud of myself, the world seems such a great place and the future is so rosy... Then 2 minutes later all I can think is I want a fag, no I need a fag doing my head in...:confused:

Still waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat not really having nightmares but a real feeling of gloom (must be fags never felt like this before) :eek:

Went out last night for a meal (party of 32) not one person smoked !!!

Hope your hangin in there Netti :p

Keep the faith

  • Hey Robbo, it will smooth out and get more even in time, don't worry. My first two weeks, the constant thought of smoking was almost claustrophobic if that makes sense, it just would not go away. Then it did, almost overnight, very strange at the time but very welcome too.

    I've just worked out I am now on day 79 (I think, if not it's 86 but I think it's 79!) and the fact that I have had to work it out is brilliant. I only worked it out just out of interest and in terms of how far past week 4 I am, which is when a lot of the bad feelings just went away; longevity to the day in terms of counting does not matter anymore, it's becoming just the way it is.

    I'm lucky to be teetotal though in the sense that I don't have to worry about the drink aspect! :D

    Well done too to Netti, keep going ;)

  • Hang in there.It does get better. The wanting will pass till eventually it will hardly ever cross your mind.

    Remember you can smoke if you want to, but what good will it do you? You WON'T feel better, you'll feel worse. You don't need to smoke.

    How marvelous that there were no smokers in that large group.

  • Thanx again

    I know I rant on here and most of what I say is negative but I'm so happy with the way I'm feeling about myself which is really proud.... It's a great feeling and I'm loving it, but when I do have a little mental wobble and I come on here and read people's words of encouragement and support it really is helping me so thanx again and until the next rant I will be surfing the forum trying to pass on some help to some newer members (look at me considering myself a bit of a quitting veteran)....

    Hope you have a had a nice day Netti, I'm starting to think they might be right it may be getting a little easier :)

    Keep the faith :cool:

    I don't think you're negative at all - you're telling it how it is and that's what I need to hear. It's great to tell of sunshine, carefree days but equally the cold and wet ones; after all that's real life with or without a fag. I'm day 8 myself so still up and down alot.

    Good on you m8 and keep it up
