Im feeling crap!!

But still positive!

Ive been trying to give up this disgusting habit for a while now......caved again. But, rather then say how dissappointed I am with myself,I will say this....

I don't care if it takes another 100 'Day 1's.............I will do it.

I could write for England what I am thinking right now..but theres no point. Its about myself and my weaknesses.....and my strengths..........I will stop with this ridiculous nicoteine habit..........I WILL.

  • Sorry you are feeling crap! It's awful how caving makes you feel (I know from many past experiences). You think that just one won't hurt but when you have it, it usually tastes awful, so you try a few more puffs to see if it gets better.....but it doesn't.

    Keep going - you can do this! If nothing else works I can really recommend the e-cig method. I only use it to avoid caving.

  • how do you do it cold turkey??? Im amazed how people manage this. x

    Goodness knows, I can't!!

    Hang in there hun, if I can stop you can :) x

  • Hi Isha .... practise makes perfect and you sound very determined to kick Nico Demon where it hurts .

    I went through exactly the same highs and lows when i caved in several times and got soooooooooo pi***d off with all the day 1s that I eventually cracked it as I am sure you will too.

    I tried various patches and from my own experience nicorette invis patches were by far the best for me ... no itching and they stay on pretty well.

    Good luck - you will get there.:)

  • We are all capable of giving up.

    Those who have succeeded,really want to do this. Those that fail, didn't want to quit enoughD

    I like this:)

  • Does my failed attempts mean I don't really want to quit?

  • Does my failed attempts mean I don't really want to quit?

    Not necessarily hun :)

    My failed ones definitely did because i was doing them 'cos I was nagged or guilt tripped into it while I still enjoyed smoking but I know you really do want to stop :)

    And, you will!!

    I think your failures so far are because you haven't found the right way to stop yet. What have you tried so far?

  • Originally I gave up nearly 3 years ago...for 2 years! I gave up the day I found out I was pregnant!

    Then in Jan this year gave up for around 2 months using the Nicorette patches.........one night of drink and BAM! Since then I was given Nicotinell patches, was supposed to last 24 hours, but only managed to stick on my skin for 1 hour!!

    So, I guess the answer is.............another baby!!!

  • I really applaud people managing it cold turkey.......My dad managed this after smoking over 50 years!

    Im gona have to keep reading the Allen Carr book over and over me thinks..........I guess I don't have the right frame of mind.

  • LOL!

    Im serious!!! :)

  • Appreciate it peeps.....I was so focused before......can't understand why Im struggling to get back to that frame of mind. Ive a lot going on....buying our first property....looking to move my father in (elderly with Parkinsons and Dementia).....no money! and a 2 year old!!Feeling a bit sh*te about how much weight I have put on etc etc.... But I feel like they are just excuses.....I know they are excuses........stress makes me crave more though........arrrrgggghhhhh

    I will plan to try again on monday.......but feel nervous about saying it....as everyone thinks I will just fail anyway!

  • your quit

    Good evening ISHA 1930 stop talking yourself down,your not a loser you just haven't succeded yet but you will. It does get easier believe me. Remember this is a serious addiction we're dealing with and to put it some kind of context let me tell you about my quit. I'm a recovering alcoholic not having had a drink for some 22+ years and if I thought stopping drinking was difficult it was a cake walk compared to stopping smoking. However I got there with the help of the forum,N.R.T and smoking cessation classes and this evening I'm some 15+ months nicotine free having smoked for some 41/42 years. So the addiction can be overcome beat of luck with your quit and keep posting

  • You are such lovely people, honest I am so glad I joined this forum.

    Its family and friends that literally laugh at me when I say Ive quit......I know their irrelevant to my quit, but it does make you feel it will be more acceptable if the quit fails.....does that make sense?

  • Thank you Kathryn. xxx

    You have doneso amazingly well.....so very proud of you. How long have you gone now? x

  • Michael....thank you so much for posting. You have put things into perspective.....my brother is an alcoholic in recovery.........addictions are ...well ADDICTIONS! I guess I do forget that actually its not all about me being weak, its also about nicoteine being a drug.

    I have so many good reasons to give up......it seems tho, that as soon as I am stressed (or have a drink!)....I'm smack back down to the addiction again...

    I am determined, as in, I don't care how long it takes.....it has to be done.........I will be a non smoker again...I won't allow my son to watch me suffer as I watched my mum.......I can't do that, its so wrong and unfair........x

    Thank you for your comments everyone, I do appreciate your time and effort to read and reply. Thank you xxx
