Day 2... again

Okay guys, so I got a bit of unexpected help. On Sunday night, smoking was actually hurting one of my teeth. I found out today that this is an abcess but yesterday I got up and the thought of the pain was too much to bear so I popped on a patch. Am delighted to say I am now in day 2. Mouth is still killing me but at least I am on antibiotics and am still off the cigs. Hopefully this one will take. Hope all my good friends are doing well with their quits!

  • Congrats on your abcess Mark!

    It's put you back on the path again :)

    Hope you get your tooth sorted soo. In a wierd way it's good to have something that hurts as your mind always focuses on the primary pain....If you know what I mean!!?!

    Well done setting on the journey again

  • give it up!

    Nice one Mark, it is probably not a bad thing to have something painful to get you through the first few days.................they are are the worst!!!

  • It really was a big help having the pain but the main thing is that I didn't want to do it anyway. It was nice to have that extra kick to get going but I have not really experienced any craves anyway. I'm not going to jump the gun - taking it one day at a time and will use NRT for as long as I need to. The goal is to not smoke and if this is the way it needs to be done then it is how I will do it.

    It's nice to get the encouragement from everyone and it will be a big help. I know that it won't be easy but I also know it won't be the end of the world if I do have a crave. I also know I was on a sinking ship and really don't want to go down with it.

    Glad to be back (even with the pain lol)

  • Mark! Stop piddling about :D when you first quit you were so determined, try to get that spirit back, but having said that I hope you're not in pain for long!

    The pain is a big driving force this time around. Maybe once the pain is gone the high spirited me will come back. In fact, I know that there is a positive determination in there but all I can think at the minute is 'ouch'. The old me will be back, just give it a day or 2 of antibiotics and painkillers lol.

    Well done on sticking with the quit AB. 6 months done in time for Christmas :D

  • Six months for me on Xmas Eve if I get that far...hope you feel better soon ;)

  • Nice one AB

  • Hope this is your quit Mark! Hope your tooth is better soon:)

  • Just about to go to bed. Had a couple of craves this evening but at least I was able to tell that they were just in my head. It was the whole "do this... have a smoke" thing. I haven't actually thought about having a smoke in the sense of a crave. Thanks for all the encouragement and support guys. it really does make all the difference.

    Good night day 2
