hardest day yet

Well today is day 12 and let me tell you this day has been the worst one yet as far as cravings. every hour on the hour i have craved a cig. "Just one" my brain tells me come on it's ok just one. I think i know whats going on though. You see I read about alot of people on here cruising through the first week or so only to start having much stronger cravings during the following weeks. What i think is happening is that for me anyway the joy and newness of not smoking is starting to ware off. The first week I was so happy that i quit that the cravings were not very hard to fight off. This week my brain is telling me that it feels great and that it's ok to have just one. I'm trying to dig deep into my core as to why i really need to quit. If i smoke I will die plain and simple.

  • IF I HAVE JUST ONE CIGARETTE, I’LL BE BACK WHERE I STARTED…

    WHERE I STARTED WAS DESPERATELY WISHING I WAS WHERE I AM TODAY.

    This statement (found here on member’s signatures) is a life-saver. it just reminds you what your will is when that Nic monster is sending fog to the brain and scratching for its fix.

    It’s like the brain won’t be listening to any reason, but the mind, functioning on an higher level than the brain, will catch up with the message.

    Hope this can help, if still in need for gripping motivation to keep steady in the quit.

    Have a great day!

  • This is the really c r a p p y thing about Nick O'teen...just when you think you've got him beaten & thrown out, he sneaks in under the wire when you least expect it! I have found it happens at certain times. My last quit was like yours...easy in the first couple of weeks, then suddenly took a nose dive. It really pees you off cos you think you're completely free & it feels like you've got to start the quit all over again. hang in there, fella, you can beat it. ;)
