Day 8

I have amazed myself with how well I have handled going cold turkey and for 7 days I had a few issues controlling the anger that built up but I managed to find activities to counter act it :)

Today, day 8 is different. After some not so nice news and "discussions" this morning I found myself struggling and ended up sat in the car at the shop ready to go in and waste my hard earned money on cancer sticks :mad:. I didn't but the feeling of needing a cigarette is huge right now. Funnily enough writing this is actually helping, maybe I will sit here for the day ;). I have no interest in failure, I guess I need to work out something productive to do when life gets that little bit more stressed.

Thanks for putting up with my rant.

  • Hi Zene,

    please don't apologise for ranting. We all need to do that from time to time.

    I am so proud of you for not caving in and buying some. You should focus on that success for starters!

    Whenever I got like that in the first few weeks I would go for a walk and clear my head. Every single time I did that I came back more positive and able to deal with whatever rubbish life was chucking my way.

    Reading posts on this forum also helps me whenever I feel out of sorts.

    Hang in there and stay strong Zene,

    You are doing this :)
