Day 6!

A few wobbles but I'm feeling pretty good. Got out of bed for breakfast then got straight back in after I realised I didn't really have anything to do today. Normally, I would have chain smoked and felt sorry for myself.

But I got myself back out of bed and planned fun things to do with the money I'm saving over the next month (mostly gigs I'm going to go to with my friends...), so now I really feel like my life has been made ten times better by spending my money on fun memories instead of nicotine :) I'm also going to try and make sure I have things to do of a weekend so I don't wake up thinking I want to smoke to pass the time.

    Hi Sunshine, Yes it is so important that you have things to do at the weekend to keep you occupied instead of thinking about smoking. I am glad that you are going to some gigs with your friends. Do your friends live locally? Could you make arrangements with them to go for lunch or just a bit of shopping and spend the money you are saving?

    Even doing things alone can be fun especially shopping you can spend as long as you like in a shop looking at only things you want to look at. Keep it going and keep posting. You can always rely on some one being on here that will 'talk' to you.xxx:)

  • Thanks Haze! Yep, I'm going to set myself up with plenty of plans for fun :) Really need some distraction!

    Well done on quitting smoking by the way!
