107 days and feel weak

Hi everyone

My last 2 days have been very low. I've kept myself busy with painting and going to the gym and making curtains (and that's just today) !

My mind has been constantly on buying some cigs. I haven't but I'm putting myself through torture. Imagining buying them rushing home and smoking !!!

Keep snapping myself out of this but it's always the same old thoughts coming back.

Then to counteract these thoughts, I imagine the lethal smoke filling my lungs and then am for a while.

Well, today I have read that BAT INDUSTRIES ( British American Tobacco Industries) have jumped onto the ECIG bandwagon and plan on releasing their own version ecig in September. And I think maybe these e cigs are ok. Supermarkets are selling them.

I keep thinking because I have been going cold turkey would I be crazy to buy an ecig ? It's so no bad as the real fags..and better than buying a packet of 10 right?

Excuse me if Iam all over the place here...just can't concentrate :(

Grrrrr..I got it bad for some reason

  • Vapourlites are endorsed by the NHS now and you can get them with or without nicotine. I have one and when something, which seems terrible to me happens, I get it back out. I find a couple of puffs does the trick and it doesn't have any nicotine. I bought mine online but my local chemist sells them.

  • I myself have a vapourlite with a zero nicotine cartridge. I hardly use it at all these days (in fact, I've lost it atm & am wondering where it is but am managing perfectly well without it) so I don't think it does reinforce the smoking habit as I was a very heavy smoker with a very addictive personality & only used it for the first week & I felt they were nothing like cigs at all, tbh...so, if you feel they could help, go for it. They are a damn sight better than smoking a real cig.

    Thank you so much for your advise each I have read a few times now.

    I think my problem is because I know I could smoke again easily - I don't class myself as beating it ? I am amazed I have done this so far without NRT.

    It's just to get my head into gear and stop ****** eating ! Last night I eat 4 CRUNCHIE BARS:( O M G ! I am already 8lb heavier. Chopping up carrots as I write lol....

    I know my body don't physically crave Nicotine so today......

    "HEAD ! behave you don't smoke - GET OVER IT "

    I'm still a non smoker thanks guys for yet even more support than anyone could wish for.

    I know I have had good days before - going to make today another one.

    This site is so wonderful thank you x

    Aww Woo, don't feel down!!

    You're doing so well - no nicotine, no stinky fags and that's fab :D

    But we all get rough patches - you've smoked for years, convinced yourself you like it for years and suddenly *poof* gone in well, a puff of smoke. It's tough adjusting without ciggies but you will get through!!

    A lot of us get a wobble when the shine comes off it - people stop asking you about it, the joy of saying "I don't smoke" goes and you're left feeling a bit flat.

    We could all smoke so easily - I could nip next door, ask one of the girls for a fag and a light and off we go but we won't - we're making the conscious choice to be smoke free :)
