Day 11 - All Change

Morning Gang!

How are we all doing today? I’m feeling fab! I have a spring in my step, I have a weird kind of excitement about me today.

I woke up this morning and something seemed to just ‘click’ (No, it wasn’t my bones when I got out of bed! LOL)

I really feel as if the mist has cleared, like I can breathe, like I am free – everything just seems Brighter.

OR maybe its just that Friday feeling? LOL

Either way, I will be making the most of this!

The beast just doesnt seem so beastly today, more like a little bug that I hardly even know is there! hahaha!

How is everyone else on this fine day?

  • That's brilliant news Craig :)

    Think the mental battle is harder than the addiction, and when it does "click" that you don't want to, don't need to smoke that's a huge turning point!!

    You still need to be on your guard, Nic o'Tine is a cunning little bugger, but with that mindset you're going to beat him and he'll have to slink off to find someone else to bug :cool:

    And for me, doesn't seem like I ever smoked, much less enjoyed it :eek:

  • Hi Gemma,

    It really does feel like a turning point, and I really hope i stay feeling like this. Its almost as if I had one last big battle yesterday, and today i have woken up victorious with the war won! Like he gave it his best shot and lost! Whooop!!

    I know that the little b@stard will be back and i am far from "in the clear", but I also have a strange feeling when he does come back, he will be rather easily swept under the carpet.

    I will remain on guard, with my full body armour on :D

    Thanks, Gemma. You have done brilliant.

  • Yay! See, when you fight through those really crappy days and don't give in, the next day always dawns brighter.

    It's probably not your last battle, this quitting lark is a rollercoaster in the early days. But you can face your next 'bad day' knowing that it CAN be beaten and that it WILL pass... and that knowledge makes it much easier to deal with.

    And the bad days get fewer and further between, until every day is easy.

    Well done Craig, enjoy the high!

  • Well done Craig! I read your previous posts and panicked thinking omg, how am I going to do this!!?? But sooooo pleased you are out the other side! Gives me hope, well done x

  • Helsbelles, Thank you so much. your words of wisdom have really help me stay focused and battle through. - Do not worry, I am under no illusion that I am never going to have another bad day again, but my mindset now is that I'm over the worst. I am never a 'down' or 'depressed' person, and yesterday was the worst ive felt for as long as i can remember. It has given me real stength, I feel like if i can fight that off, i can fight anything off. With a massive thanks to you, I will enjoy this buzz all day long :)

    Nicki, thank you! all i can say is this forum and the people on it are a life-line. There is an absolute mountain of infomation on here of how people deal with it and what they have felt and having something to relate to sure does help. Not to mention the sheer support!! - How are you doing now? what day are you up to?

    Kat, I'm on a roll now, nothing will stop me or stand in my way :D Thanks so much :)

    Max, in my eyes you are one of the 'leaders' of this forum. you have time for everyone, i am truly grateful of all your support. You have always got something good and inspiring to say. thank you :)

  • Well done Craig ! Very positive thinking, thats what it takes for all us to get thru and quit these dam fags, your on the right road m8, stay focused and you will get there.

    Hi Craig, totally agree, middle of day 4 for me! sounds a bit pathetic doesn't it when your into double figures!!

  • Hi Chrissy, it does feel good, thank you :)

    Nicki - its not pathetic at all! day 4 is a massive achievement. They say you should take each day at a time, but you are so close to 1 week now! I know you can do it! keep up the great work!

  • Brilliant news Craig.

    Like you I'm still braced and ready for bad days but allow yourself to bask in the glory of your good days:)
