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 ) 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!!
