My helpful non smokers

I really need some encouragement here

I'm just at the start of my 6 months and this is always around the time I pack in the quitting I don't no what it is but it's starting well it started last week..

Although I do t crave for a smoke.. I get really upset over nowt.. Iv woke up everyday for a week thinking why bother i think iv cryed more than I have in years.. Me gums get really irritated like ichy. It's like I need do something with ne mouth.. Iv bin watching people smoke.. I just Carnt take my eyes of them.. :eek: I was looking at some photos the other day and I was more interested in looking at the fags in ppls hands

I new it was starting but I always forget about it on me quit as iv always started up again.

  • Shelley, you didn't go through hell to give in now. We are not going to let you. You are an example to others in your ability to keep going through it all.

    Lots of people have an easy quit but you have proved that even when the going is rough it is possible to say NOPE.

    Three cheers for Shelley:D:D:D

    Cheers una really think that's what is starting up the anxiety again.. Makes me feel like I'm back to week 4 again.

    I won't let it beat me not this time

  • Shelly Shelly Shelly!!!! You're one of my constants, you've been with me all through my quit and I sympathise; I was the same on week 4 so maybe I'll get this again in a month or two myself. I hope (and expect!) to be able to call on you if I do.

    Una's bang on the money, you've come too far and done too much to give it all away now.

    Plough through it, we're here for you ;)

    I tried to quit a few years back but unfortunately I failed at week 11.

    This time round I have done OK. The only time I could have had a wobble was at the 11 week point. Knew as soon as I got up that day it could be the day that I started smoking again.

    I sat down and thought about it for a while and soon relised that that day was no different to any other of my quit days except the little voice in my head telling me this is where you fail. You failed last time you will fail again so get some fags. I had a serious talk to myself and said no I will not fail, today's just another day like all the other I got through and I can get through this one.

    Just keep telling yourself you can get through this, you will get through this. We all know on here you can do it. Don't let the stupid voices beat you, you have come to far.

    The other thing is to sit and remember why you gave up to start with and why you have tried before. I believe too many people lose site of the reasons for stopping. I only have to look back to the day I stopped and the state I was in and thats enough to say never again.

    Looking forward to your post next week that says I beat the demons

    Shelley you superstar. I'm chucking all my love in with the rest. Great big, enormous, massive, sticky, chocolatey, come here and give us a huggely buggely love. Crickey on a bikey.....you've simply got to hang in till 7 months.......just have a wee peekey weekey through the 7 month door and see if its all different then. Bet it is. Mind you.....you'll never know if you keep throwing the towel in at 6 months. Aitch is right. You're just mind messing yourself. Gawd....after all you've been through.....you'll really know what crying is if you blow this quit. Back to square one if you have to shelley.....just beat one crave at a time.....one minute at a time. Come on lass. I'm hot on your heels and looking forward to seeing you in the penthouse. x

  • Thank you all so much with ur kind words and support. Iv never had anyone who I could talk to when iv quit before. Only at the start of them when iv quit with other people and I'm always the last one standing. But I always give in around the 6 month.

    Anxity better thank god for the tablets. I'm not craving so that's good. Just got get past 6 months. And if I can do 5 I'm sure I can do 1

  • Yes thats more like it.

    Get to the penthouse and if your lucky Dippy might let you have a go on the loveliest bike in the world (probably) if you can get her off it for more than 2 minutes

  • Stick with it Shelley, I have put your name on a nice comfy chair in the Penthouse:) Not to mention the drinks are chilling for your arrival - you will be here in no time:)

Please dont give in you are my quit buddy you are the one I look up to... you are the one that has quit where most would have fallen ages ago... you are the one who has inspired people and you are the one that everyone looks out for. That is true Shelley we all look out for you, we care about you, and we are so so proud of you. I know I am I am so in awe of you.

    You wont smoke... I know you wont. I wont let you.xxx

  • Shelley, just take it one step at a time. If it means going back to one minute at a time...do it. It will pass. I am ahead of you by a few months and I promise to hold the door to the Penthouse open for you when you get there!

    Remember, anything worth obtaining is worth fighting and struggling for. You can do it. If you need to scream, cry, rant...we are all here for you. Just don't let the enemy win....I am praying for you....you can do it!!! God bless you!ppat
