Week 4

Slipped silently into week 4 today........... wahaaaaaay!

I feel i've entered some kind of transition zone where the initial anxious excitement and blazing determination of the quit have started to settle, while a humdrum b****ity has begun to emerge. Feels dangerous: complacency could raise it's ugly head.......:(.

It might be the stage that Dippy was describing on a recent post where the long term implications of quitting are beginning to become apparent.

Champix has started to give me discomfort in the stomach, so I've reduced it from 1.5mg to 1.0mg per day today, and am expecting repercussions tomorrow.

It's good that some of the longer term quitters have recently been posting - thanks for your posts.

    We all go through this and at least you have recognised the change (forewarned is forearmed) So be on your guard and it will pass and you will become confident again, the Champix gave me an upset stomach but they are part of the reason I am quit I found them really good.

    Keep going Biggrin you are doing reallyreally well:D:D

  • Better out than in Sian. My body's doing a general clear out too. Here's one for you:

    Sian - It's a bit naughty really. I think the site automatically censors certain words and puts up asterisks instead of the word. It does this even if the word is contained innocently within a longer word. The clue is in my second post: see which letters of b a n a l i t y have been given asterisks, and that will give you the censored word.

    Note: The censoring works on b****ity but not on b a n a l i t y, because the second has spaces between each letter, so the censoring program does not recognise the word. For example take the word "pig". it would recognise pig as a word, but would not recognise p ig, because it has a space in it. To the program that looks like two words, one word is "p", the other "ig".

  • Keep plodding on biggrin... you are doing great, ride the storm and you will come out the other end stronger...

    Well..coming out the other end stronger .... will obviously depend on how much soggy digestive you and Karri leave in my Pink stary mug in the Stoptober room!!!!!! :eek: LMAOOOOOOO :D

  • Whooooops, I'd better wash it up now....

  • week four, well done!

    Well done!!! week four is great!

  • Well done Biggrin, still quit and still going strong I see:)

  • Thanks for the support everyone. :D

  • You ok Big Grin? :) Still riding it out? Easier and easier is coming. I promise. x

  • I'm ok thanks, Dippy. I'm feeling a bit miserable at the moment, although I think that's mainly to do with other aspects of my life rather than the quit. I noticed you hadn't posted for a few days - it's nice to see your posts again. :)

  • keep smilng, your doing really well ;) massive pat on the back mate!!!

    Thanks Craig, the miserableness seems to have lifted and I'm feeling more positive now. :)

  • :D

    Glad to read your back in the positive mindset Biggrin

    the mood swings do improve the further along the journey you go and marking of each milestone really does help to keep that positive mood too

    onwards and upwards is def the way to go :)

    regards

  • Thanks Carol :)

  • This too will pass

    Hi Biggrin

    Glad to see you're feeling more positive. Things do improve eventually but at the time it feels as though things will never get any better.

    I used to find it helped to say to myself:

    "This too will pass" it would put the cravings and "misery" into perspective. And guess what !! The bad feelings always disappear eventually.

  • Glad I found this thread. I have been a real pollyanna since I stopped- no cravings, just thrilled that I had stopped, but yesterday I felt dissatisfied, I wanted to smoke, I did not like my family and I was angry. I didnt smoke but I ate a tub of ice cream. Today I feel a bit better, I know that if I had smoked I would now be completely depressed and full of self loathing. I guess the message is that I have committed to a new life whether it is easy or difficult but of course I was hoping for easy easy easy.

  • Big Grin:)

    Massive well done:) This is beginning to sound like this is the one.
