i nearly cracked

After reading Craig's posts from last night i have to ask what the hell was going on?! I feel i need to own up and say if it wasn't for my OH i would be sat here now with a half empty pack in front of me. I had a particularly stressful/upsetting incident last night that i just didn't know how ti handle so i grabbed my purse and car keys to make my way to the garage to buy smokes. My OH was quite brutal but it worked!he grabbed my keys out my hand and stood in blocking the front door until i calmed down enough to see sense!

Hats off to Craig and my OH this morning. Smoking won't solve our issues and i would've felt completely useless and defeated today.

  • Aww I'm sorry you had a nasty time last night ((hugs))

    But YIPPEE for your OH - how good is he?

    All smoking would have done is make you feel c**p nd whatever happened would still have happened!!

    Well done for getting through it :) x

  • We all go though that tic, I have my mad moment a few weeks ago, and thanks to my OH, who actually caused my mad fit, she stopped me from going to the garage and buying some smokes.

    We have to be strong in the hardest of times to make it through this. Our OH will not always be around us to be the voice of reason, so We have to learn to deal with it on our own. I generally think of how far I have come, and what a better life i am leading now that I quit, and that generally helps.:)

  • You're right DP, like most people I've gone through a few :)

    If it wasn't for one of my friends especially (and he smokes, lol) then I'd have wrecked this quit - thank you alcohol - and a couple of times I'd have done it again if I hadn't been over the drink-drive limit.

    The important thing is that we didn't though and we're still non-smokers :cool:

  • Well done Tic. And make sure you thank that OH of yours, for making sure it didn't happen. Like you say, if it weren't for him you'd be feeling dreadful today and so guilty. He didn't have to stop you (he's not your parent after all), so it's great that he would go to those lengths to help you avoid the dirty nico-demon! :D

    How are you feeling now? It's still you who DIDN'T smoke, so make sure you give yourself a good pat on the back :) It wouldn't have been that difficult sneak off, so there must have been a part of you that really listened to your OH and agreed! xxx

    Hi all! Im pleased i didn't give in but seem to have craved constantly since i got up this morning but know that i will not and cannot smoke. Since i stopped I've just felt so miserable and really struggle to find enthusiasm for anything. A lot of the time im forcing myself to be more positive, its almost like a pretense. I hope this passes its not like me at all.

  • Come on mate day 25 almost done now, we ar :De nearly there
