Day 6 in the No smoking house

Done fantastic today, been to a friend's who smokes indoors and I coped well. I felt I needed something to hold so kept demanding a cuppa but I didn't cave in. Didn't really get any pangs but the test would be while drinking. I won't be doing that for a while hopefully.

That's brilliant :D

Being around someone who's smoking and not gettign a crave is really good, especially so early on - keep it going!! x

Thanks, my family still smoke but at the front door. I really think listening to my Alan Carr audio book helped. I am usually a 20+ a day gal and smoke as I am going out, before I get out of a shop I am getting 1 ready, will normally have about 3 when visitting a friend for an hour and 1 while I make tea, 1 as it is getting served and another when I've eaten. No way have I felt this good in so few days.

That sounds a lot like how I used to be. :eek::rolleyes:

First thing I did when I got up was head out the back door for a fag and with my friends I'd smoke myself stupid - but I'm loving being free of all that. :D

And flipping heck, if I can quit *you* can 'cos I've got the willpower of a flea!!

Thanks but I think alcohol goes with a cig so well. It is what started me smoking again after quitting for 3 years. I lost weight, felt confident so socialise again and started just smoking while drinking then drinking buddies seen mid week so on so on then felt I best buy some since I have bummed so many off them. We all know our strengths and weaknesses. Drinking brings out my piggy tail so it will certainly make me a chimney:(

Me too, have had a couple of glasses of wine and am craving now.

Unfortunately, we're all addicts so there's no such thing as "just a few when you drink" - am getting throught it with an e-cig, will get that out when I can't stand the crave any longer, I haven't yet though!!

I tried e-cig last year. Travelled to warehouse to pick up stronger strength carts and lasted 2 weeks. It helped me cut down. Instead of the 20+ I was having about 5 but when battery is dead it is so easy to have a real 1. I know they do help some people but this time I needed to not swap the addiction

TBH I think you're right to go with nothing at all, am using it because i have no willpower. :eek: That said, I've been using it for 2 weeks and would rather saw my arm off than smoke another cigarette!!

I hate smoking, and love not being a smoker any more!!
