Well today is day 8 and so here I am in the 2 week section, big pat on the back for me. Have thrown myself headfirst into some gardening and thinking of renaming our home as Fuchsia paradise, they are beautiful flowers.
1st week for me got off to a very good start as I had phych'd myself up and was very positive. Day 6 was crap for most of the day but it did lift the following day. From previous quits I am aware the 1st 4 weeks can be tricky especially the 1st 10 days for me and so I am looking forward to getting the 1st month out the way. Our brains have a common sense human side (the one that keeps us grounded) it full of logic and very sensible ideas. We also have a naughty side that runs purely on emotion. hunches and beliefs Its our naughty side that is trying to lure us back to smoking so I find its best to listen to what your naughty side has to say and let him chat away for a few mins and then use our human side to answer all his ridiculous questions one by one and answer in a non condescending way, pacifying a little but answering with factual answers and let the naughty side know things are not going to be tough for very long.
