Very tough day but staying positive

I've been fighting loads of strong craves out of the blue today, one after the other - definitely one of the hardest days I've had (and this forum was down!!)

It caught me by surprise 'cos yesterday was really easy after I'd shaken my morning gloom, especially binning a packet of fags I found without wanting one. Am so glad I didn't find them today!!

Today I've been teary, down and grumpy again, struggling to think about anything apart from cigarettes and munching NRT gum like it's going out of fashion to keep the cravings at bay.

But this is how I've been thinking about it and where the positive comes in. :) Today has been a good day - not 'cos I'm a masochist but because even though I went through all kinds of hell, and was really tempted to say "blow it!" (or something like that :p ) and go to the shop 5 minutes away I didn't go and have *not* smoked. My quit is still on, I still haven't had a fag since last year, I am still a non-smoker!!

This made so much more sense in my head than it does on here :eek: but writing it down helped me a bit more!!

  • Well done

    I used to have days like them Gem, they are bloody awful, but they will stop I promise. Keep strong Gemma I think you are doing fantastic and you will be so pleased one day that you didnt give in to the crave.

    Well done! xx

  • Thanks Haze!!

    I'm already so pleased i didn't give in - the thought of starting over again is too scary :eek:

  • Well done for staying strong Gemma, you've come so far, keep going you can do it!!

  • Awesome stuff Gemma-lou. You are sounding formidable.

  • Im feeling exactly the same as you today gemmalou,

    But def agree there is no point having one, it's not going to make us feel better, we will feel worse after and have to start again and that would be awful!

    Keep going we can get through it, look how well you have done already!

    Chin up tomorrow will be a good day!x

  • Wooders, spoken like another tough quitter. There is a fearsome bunch of new quitters in December/January. Excellent.

  • Thanks everyone :D

    This forum is definitely a huge help!!

    Well done not having one Wooders, you've definitely got the right attitude and we're both going to make it :cool:

  • Am haing a tough day, but won't give in. It's 4 weeks today that I put out my last fag and I'm not going to ruin that!!

    Smoking won't make me feel better anyway - would feel awful for giving up on my quit instead.

    Woooohooo! Gemma-Lou, Wooders, when did someone last describe you as fearsome? Thanks Biggrin, in this for the duration, not giving up giving up. That'll be a strap line then. Come on the Christmas conquerors!
