Double Figures

If anyone had told me a month ago that I'd have stopped smoking for 10 days I'd have though they were barking. I would not be at this point without this forum - this has been the only difference from my prior, well meant quits.

Last couple of days have felt as if the addiction has been going through a last ditch attempt to get my attention: really strong naggy cravings - more for the ritual than the fag. Coffee is still a toughie particularly as it is my profession and I need to keep on top of it, but hey-ho.

thanks all:D

  • Well done, you're doing great. I opted for the e-cig because of the ritual thing, but I'm hardly using it. I don't grab it every time I walk the dog, after every meal or just because I have a break as I would have done with a cigarette.

    It's amazing how quickly that feeling of needing a cigarette comes up, but then it can pass just as quickly if not focused on.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Well done lovely!!!! thats smashing work!

    Kepp it up

    Its the blinkin' smoking reaper hanging on to you for dear life. I like to think of every craving i beat being like a sucker punch to ther reaper that nearly knocks his head off. A bit like the final boss on video games - you know, the ones you have to hit/shoot thousands of times before they die.... keep punching and eventually he will die and be gone.

    game over.
