    Well I would have suggested you join this forum, that would have been my tip but you have already done that so I would say read read and read all the posts on here and you will get inspiration and also lots of tips. Ylou have come to the right place. Also things will get easier for you with time. Things will get much easier I promise.xx

  • Yep, done that, I'm not going to say its easy because it's not, all you can do is break it down into manageable chunks, even half hour at at time? Then go and do things to take your mind off of it, if you feel the need to scream, then maybe do it into a cushion so it doesn't frighten anyone!!! Whatever you do, do give into it, I never ever thought I'd be 28 days down now but I've done it one step at a time, good luck hon xx

  • Thank you the cravings dont bother me that much my main worry is my mum stoppd 3 years ago and my SIL at about the same time and my mum says she would still kill for one but SIL says she thinks about it every now and again and thats it. So is my mum a drama queen or is my SIL just trying to make me feel beter????? I can cope with how i feel now as long as i know it wont last forever

  • Kat your a star you just made me feel a whole lot beter thank you so much xxx your all so nice on here x

  • I've found that coming on here and reading other folks posts are a great help and help distract your attention-I also like the two post rule...it's a winner i Reckon

    I think my favourite thing about this forum, apart from the awesome amount of support, is that you come on to have a good rant and, before you know it, it's bed time. Or an hour has passed and you've stopped thinking about your crave without noticing :)

    Stick with this site Lulu. Even if I don't fancy a rant, focusing on other people's stories is another great aid for me.

    Good luck! Xxx

  • Well done for doing 7 days:D I think it's a 7 thing... 7 year itch etc? My 7th day today and I woke up feeling a little depressed like an old friend had died. Snapped at people and generally felt I could just have a fag. I decided to have some me time and take the dog for a nice long walk. It helped, came back refreshed and proud for not caving in. How did you do? We are all human so the important thing is that even if we do fall, we pick ourselves up and carry on:)
