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 :)
