Quitting smoking would be easy if it wasn't for other people!!

Don't know about you guys, but half my need for NRT is down to other people!!

Somehow they always appear at the wrong time, stir you up at the worst moment and all of that.

Or is it just me? lol.

Was doing well without gum for hours until my boss started winding me up, now I'm chain-chewing my second bit :(

Will have to buy some more tonight.

    It most certainly isn't just you! Maybe those sort of people know we have stopped smoking and are deliberately sent out to test us by being as annoying as possible!

    Chin up - 2 pieces - is that all? You are doing brilliantly!

    It certainly seems like it, lol.

    Maybe they're always annoying and not smoking makes them unbearable or maybe it's having the grumps that makes them annoying - am confusing myself now!! :p

    And thanks, was trying not to have any more today but heck, it's better than having a fag.

    How are you today? :)

    It's much better than having a fag!

    I've been better thx but getting through it. I've been hurt by too many people lately and I'm fed up with people in general. Feel quite betrayed by people that I've done so much for when they were having a c**p time. It's a horrible feeling actually but I guess that's life. I've learnt another of life's lessons - you can't rely on anyone except yourself!

    Hey ho life goes on.... Sod the lot of em that's what I say.

  • I would have no problem with anything past present or future if the noisy person who they make me sit next to wasnt here.

    Is she still eating?

    Poor Gem! :( Stupid boss.

    I think when I quit I associated smoking more with enjoyable times rather than the stressful times. Somehow I've managed to survive through the times that previously would have had me running for a smoke! It does help massively that I was the only smoker in the office though :rolleyes:

    Chin up, gum is just fine! As long as you don't have a fag hangin' out of your gob we're all good!! :D

    Can you whack him on the bonce with your frying pan? :p

    Ooh it would definitely help that you were the only smoker there - before my quit buddy and I stopped there was 1 non-smoker so I'm sure you can imagine what it was like for me!!

    For me getting stressed was a huge trigger to go and smoke, usually 2 straight off - did nothing to help the situation but that's a hard thing to un-learn!!

    Thanks hun :)

    Lol, think the days of me hiding from stuff behind a cloud of smoke are long gone!! xxx

    I hate those realisations. And I really like to think that I'm the sort of person who doesn't just expect things in return, who doesn't do nice things so I can have nice things in return. BUT a little appreciation now and then, a shoulder to cry on, a "thanks for being a great friend" or even a "how are you doing at the moment" is nice enough to keep your faith in people.

    I hope you have your faith in people restored soon hun. It sucks when you can't rely on those who have previously needed you.

    Sometimes it's a good idea just to take a step back and remember to look after number one. :)

  • lmao!

    yes

    Lovely! I bet she's the size of a house!

    Wise words from my namesake! I hope my faith will be restored at some point but I'm not holding my breath!

  • Lovely! I bet she's the size of a house!

    She won't be able to get out of the door soon!! :p

    Wise words from my namesake! I hope my faith will be restored at some point but I'm not holding my breath!

    I do hope so hun, you deserve it!!

  • nope she is tiny, it must take alot of effort to have a face like a bulldog licking wee off a nettle constantly.

    Oh wow, how does she manage to scoff all that and keep tiny?

    *Is very jealous*

  • I could tell you her secret, but then you would have to be her and therefore hated?

    Think I'll stick to chicken salads then, lol :p

    Actually, I'd rather start smoking again than be like her :eek:

  • nope she is tiny, it must take alot of effort to have a face like a bulldog licking wee off a nettle constantly.

    Hehehe she sounds beautiful!

    How did "perfume in the lift" remind you of him?

    Hmmmmmm he can't be worth it then! You would be a fine catch for any young man - wait for one who is worthy of you!

  • How did "perfume in the lift" remind you of him?

    It didn't. :)

    Hmmmmmm he can't be worth it then! You would be a fine catch for any young man - wait for one who is worthy of you!

    And are you absolutely sure you don't have a chance with this guy?

  • And are you absolutely sure you don't have a chance with this guy?

  • Ah that's a real pity for you - well I'm sure the next guy you fancy will be even better (and single)!
