No Smoking Day

day 3 :-D

Oh my gosh, last night was a hard test.

I went for a meal with a group of friends. Only one of them smoked. I felt abit sorry for her going out smoking by herself but then I decided its her choice.

After the meal I craved really badly. But then we did a picture posing round for the cameras and my mind was soon taken off the cravings.

I had a few drinks and I survived.

Im proud I didnt give into the demon

Yay for getting through it Sammi!!

A night out early on in your quit is a tough test - did it this time and it wasn't too bad - but a meal as well really will test you 'cos what did we do after eating? Yep, smoke.

So you've beaten one big test, well done you!! xx

Ive got major cravings this morning. Ive put on a patch and started nomming my chocolate mice.

I kept the patch on all last night and had a really nice dream. It was very detailed. So Im going to keep wearing my patches at night until I might get nasty dreams.

Ive still got some cola cubes to help me today too :D

They only say "vivid" on the packet so maybe you're lucky and you get the good ones :D :D

Yep it definitely is :)

How many were you smoking Sammi? I was on 20-25 a day and felt like a zombie :eek:

Basically nicotine is a stimulant and even NRT doesn't provide the same amount as smoking did - and not in quick blasts!!

I was on about 15 but if i was out with smoking friends i could easily do 20-30

Bread sticks sound so good right now! I got lady pains aswell today which arent helping!

Sounds familiar, lol.

Lucky for me my mouth and throat wouldn't put up with more than 30 'cos on a night out I did a very good impression of a chimney :eek:

Good on you Sammi!! You can do this...falling off the wagon is not an option for you because I would miss your posts. They have made me chuckle over the last 3 days!!

Kat mentioned it in a post to Sophie last night but if you want some motivation go onto You Tube and search for "Thanks Tobacco - you killed my Mom". I watched it last night and as usual Kat's advice is spot on!!!

Keep going Sammi. It will get easier although I can't comment on the "Lady Pains" :eek:

Better than your smokey car isn't it?

ah yesh.. Its good to be able to breathe and cycle too

before I struggled up the hill, it could be because i had an old naff bike but Im going to say its because I havent smoked :D

Well done Sammi :)

I know a few people who've decided to quit but have ended up not being able to have a good drink because, understandably, they avoided going out for the first few months and the alcohol=smoking trigger didn't go away.

I would be very cross right now if I wasn't able to go out and have alcohol without thinking about fags, so I just forced myself to get through those nights early on. It was a bit rubbish to begin with, but now it's so normal to be part of the "no smoking crew" and watch the smokers go out for their ciggies! :D

If you can nail it now you will find boozey nights out much more pleasant without those dirt cancer sticks! x

You feel heaps better in the morning too!!

No headache - and i usually only get tipsy, not full on drunk!!

No dry mouth.

No horrible cough from smoking like a chimney and no croaky throat either.

And I thought I enjoyed *that*?

I used to get the worsed hangovers and smoking made me feel sick. Its a shame that they dont make you feel sick every time you smoke

Nearly at the end of the working day. Cinema tonight! Going to see the new star trek with Dad, so another non smoking place yay

Drink water before you go to bed hun :)

But now you're a non-smoker you won't get as many!!

And making you feel sick? Like I said I smoked like a chimney when I'd had a few, and the "last one" (usually 2 if I'm honest) before I went indoors has made me be sick more than once - but it always seems like such a good idea when you're lighting it :S
