Day 3 battle hooo boy

DAY 3 is hell. No way under it, over it, around it, just one way and that's through it. This is for me where I hope it gives it it's best shot. Physical, psychological, whatever. It's hard cold turkey for sure. Really hard.

Every fibre in my being is screaming for a cigarrette. My mind is suggesting it's not the right time (never will be), or I can't concentrate and have that report to get finished etc. I can feel myself getting much fatter (after 3 days??) Having a smoke will make eeevrything better. Right?

Wrong. Not this time old friend. You've promised me that before and things do not get better. Screw you. I'm done with your tricks. Try again tomorrow.

I claim today.

My Word!

Very Strong Glad

I'm in awe! :eek:

Let the craves in and let them wash all over you, good saying I saw on another site was "what resists, persists!"

So if you let them in and try to detach them from the "you" and see them for what they are .... they won't kill you .... they wont harm you ....

.. They will get weaker and weaker.

With your strength, I don't fancy their chances! :)

Stay strong, hang in there

Take care

Gladiator,

Good going mister, what I did in the early days was let the crave come... Feel it, for what it is. Really will that crave to do it's worst....to hurt you as much as it can. And at it's very peak...concentrate on what physically that crave actually truly feels like... Look it right in the eyeball and see how pathetic and weak that monster is and laugh at it's pathetic arse.

Worked every time... Sure I learnt it from the Allen Carr easy book. Once you start it becomes quite fun kicking it's sorry arse.

Bloody brilliant. I claim today. LOVING that.

It can be monstrously hard at the outset, but you can do it. It will get easier. Get righteously angry at this feckin' habit that has you in such thrall, the anger will galvanise you to keep going. How very dare it make you feel this way? Kick it into touch!

Cheers for the support H :D. The forum is really helping, and i'm feeling in control this time. I hate to be too optomistic, but I'm in the right place mentally, and doing it for the right reasons this time. Pretty sure that will make a difference.

O.x
