Let's do this one last time

Hi :)

**New quitters, don't be put off by this, I'm the exception not the rule - this won't happen to you **

In my amazing tradition of being stupid and managing to take one step forward two back I'm going to have another go at quitting this flaming e-cig.

Got back on it after a load of c**p fell on me from a great height (feeling low, stress, flaming men, you name it) which without this place would have had me smoking again faster than you can say Marlboro Lights - but thanks to the musketeers, I didn't but did lapse onto the e-cig.

Was only meant to be for a couple of weeks, but once again it's shown me how strong this addiction is.

So, like i did with the real ones, here are my reasons for quitting.

* It makes me feel rubbish. Whatever thingies are in it, it's making me tired out and dopey. Can't be doing any good.

* I have a cough, like a smoker's cough.

* It's expensive - not compared to real fags, but the money I spend on filters and liquid is money I could spend on things I actually want to buy!!

* I have fagbreath :mad: difference is this time I can smell it too.

* I want to junk anything to do with smoking, not swap from something I actually enjoyed smoking to this thing that I don't.

* It makes me feel sick.

* I do not want to be tethered to a white stick, paper or plastic.

* I hate the b***ard thing.

So, after work I went and got the NRT of doom, paid through the nose 'cos I want to get it done, not wait a couple of days for it to come from the net.

TBH, I'm scared - even though I know it's going to be fine and I shouldn't be but I'm hardly the brightest crayon in the pack. :/

Which means I'm back like I was the best part of 9 months ago, having my last evening as a "smoker" (vaper, whatever) apprehensive and wanting to be free of a habit I've had for far too long.

Here goes nothing.

    Thanks :) You too!!

    Well thank the squirrels you are not smoking the real thing! img.photobucket.com/albums/...

    Sorry to hear yout having a hard time..http://i410.photobucket.com/albums/pp187/jamezsmusic69/CRYING_SMILEY.gif..and that your back on the NRT but hey that's better than the alternative right?

    How did you get off it last time? You have done it before so you clearly have it in you.

    I have faith in you young padawan, and don't beat yourself up about it to much.

    Here is a picture of Nyan cat..

    i1223.photobucket.com/album...

    It was definitely not the smartest decision I've ever made!!

    But, it did keep me off the real ones and it's heaps better than actually losing my quit.

    I got off it before the same way as I got off the fags - patches and gum, plus crying and smashing things :p Same way as I'm going to go now :p

    Lol at Nyan cat!!

  • Patches and gum? As in, nicotine patches?

    Those are they :)

  • A most curious paradox..

    What's a paradox?

  • Omg

    Thanks for your response earlier, I have just read your earlier post , and I know what you mean when you say stuff happens from a great height, I have decided to stop smoking in the worst year ever, my mum passed away this year on my birthday, then my sister had a serious fall and ended up having emergency brain surgery to save her life, she now has part of her skull missing, and then to top it all I had two eye surgeries that went wrong so cross eyed have had special glasses made for work, and that's the only place I go not confident to go out,

    So just may be something makes us realise if we can go through these terrible situations we can stop smoking with just a little help from the patch or e cig ect.

    Thanks for reading

    And we'll done you .

  • Kind of like a conflict of interests..

    Are you an Airplane fan by any chance? :p

    Aww I am sorry hun, you've had a stinking year!! That's awful.

    I hope you have a better time now :)

    Think you're right though, we can definitely beat this :D

  • Whoop, whoop - best milestone present I can think of is my fellow Kernow Kwitter getting free of the deadly dummy - GO GEMMA!!!:D:D:D You can do it hon, just make sure you've got your tangle toy, your gum and your patch and face the smelly b4rst4rd down - how DARE he keep worming his way back into your life? Land one on him Gem, take him DOWN!!!:mad::mad::mad:

    Time for the fists of fury to fly again! Now who ended up with Sarah Lou's frying pan?

    Yay :D

    Lol i know you were less than impressed when I said I'd bought it again :p but tonight is my last night as an e-smoker, hopefully forever!!

    Got all my weapons handy!!

  • Attagirl! Armed and ready, the smelly oik will be trembling in his shoes!:D:D:D

    I flipping hope so!!

  • :eek: well I think you are super clever and pretty and brave and lots of other good things too.

    If I am going to be honest with you this is a blip, but you realise it straight away and are dealing with it, we cannot predict what will happen so these events can set us off, but you have only fallen on to diet smoking, and are gunna knock that on the head so all is groovy.

    also a bit glad it has made you feel yuk, and that you have explained this. perhaps at some level you needed to know this and now wont return here.

    Onwards and upwards m'dear let us not linger in what has happened rather concentrate on what we can control all will get better, I promise (whatever it was that set you off dont forget we can always sent Max down with his riot gear to fix these rotten men who keep being mean)

    Aww thanks!! That's lovely :)

    am so glad I didn't actually smoke although it was touch and go :(

    It does feel horrible, just had some e-cig 'cos i was about ready to throw my laptop across the room and it's vile.

    Lol think Max would scare them!!

    ^^^what our lovely Teffers said!^^^

    Hell, we don't even need our Maxwell, let just one of them put even a toe out of line and I will come charging up the county, all guns blazing, just let me at 'em!:p:D

    Ooh now that would be fun :D

  • Something for me to remember in the future:

    I had some e-fag. It feels manky, tastes horrible and makes my mouth feel yuck.

  • hi Gemma Lou

    Its sad to hear you beating yourself up, what you have done is still massive!, after all you've gone all that time without the 1999 other chemicals and tar pumping through your body! Huge achievement!

    Wouldn't it help to do the ecig with no nicotine for a bit or do you think that would be pointless, i know some people do, i suppose it helps with the habit bit for some.

    Good luck in your new quest, i'm sure you'll be fantastico!

    xxx

  • Thanks Jules :) I hope you're right but right now I wish I'd kept my gob shut :/

    xxx

  • Gemma Lou I know you can do this!!! I will be joining you soon as I'm still using my e cig a bit and it's time to say goodbye to that little crutch.

    You have done the hard part and are ready to take the plunge. Be strong and go for it girl!!!!

    Sarah x

  • Thanks Sarah :)

    TBH I've had better starts, so am taking Kat's advice and giving the blasted white stick to my quit buddy with instructions to give it back only if 1) I'm in danger of begging a real fag or 2) toddler style meltdown is imminent.

    What is frankly terrifying is how addicted I am to the thing after a short time. It's just like stopping the real ones, but minus the enthusiasm I had at the start of my quit.

    So the plan is to wean myself off it literally ASAP - have one bottle of liquid and one pack of filters which I won't replace and it's got to go.

    Am fed up with being half-quit I want this over, like yesterday.

  • Have you tried the nicotine free version as an extra step to getting off it? Perhaps it's the habit rather than the nicotine? Might be better to wean yourself off it by using nicotine free rather than going back on gum and patches??

  • Have you tried the nicotine free version as an extra step to getting off it? Perhaps it's the habit rather than the nicotine? Might be better to wean yourself off it by using nicotine free rather than going back on gum and patches??

    Did consider that Sarah, but my problem is more the actual smoking thing, rather than just the nicotine - so wonder if using a 0% one would only carry that on?

    If I can get off the damn thing first that'll be a big plus for me

  • If its the habit that's the issue, then I wouldn't bother with the patches and gum?

  • Gemma, I know with me, it was the smoking thing rather than the nicotine. The nicotine free one was easy to give up. I know I picked it up again a few weeks ago but I gave it up again just as easily. I would try that before using the patches. Good luck whichever way you go.

  • If its the habit that's the issue, then I wouldn't bother with the patches and gum?

    It's both though, like quitting fags.

    Thanks Una!!

    Have no willpower and have probably chosen the wrong time to try this

    *sighs*

  • :(

    Ahh hun come on you can get through this and win

    just remember what you have achieved already in quitting the real ciggies and staying quit from them

    that nasty nicodine monster inside you is just trying yet another trick to make you think you need him in your life

    your stronger then that and will win through this battle just remember its just another battle and you will win it :)

    sending (((((BIG HUGS YOUR WAY))))

    Carol x

  • It's a battle I'm not winning too.

    Oh well, was worth a go I guess.

    *logs out*

  • Is there any way to delete threads on here?

  • You can ask a Moderator to kindly delete it for you. But hey, I'd leave it, it'll encourage others to know that we all of us struggle and have hiccups

    And I have so many :(

    Fed up with this.

  • Lol Gemma, I don't have any willpower. I don't have any experience with the e-cigs that you fill up. You said they smell. The kind I used don't smell and don't have any ill effects that I've noticed. You WILL GET THERE. You've come too far and struggled too long to give up.

    Have given myself a telling off and again huge thank yous to everyone :)

    Lol, you're not meant to refill my ones but I'm a careful Cornish girl ;) They make my breath smell smokey, might just be the brand I use.

    But thanks, I will get there, can't believe I was letting that evil little b*gger get me down so much. :/

  • And I thought the Scots were mean :D

  • And I thought the Scots were mean :D

    LOL!!

    My mum brought me up not to waste things :p

    Will try to cut down on the e-cig as much as poss, and kick it when i'm readier 'cos it's not happening at the mo :/

  • Flippin 'eck Gemma I was as worried about you there as I have ever been :eek::eek:

    But the real Gemma appears to be standing up now and calling the shots so hurrah :D

    Sorry!!

    I was worried about me too, felt b.loody awful and I was seriosuly considering packing it all in, but I came through!!

  • You are fighting a monster and his cunning tricks, Gemma. It's him that is putting temptation in your way. He's a ratbag.....give him such a kick up the ass that he never dares to come back again. :eek:

  • GO FIND THE FRYING PAN!!!

    you cannot give in , you are one of the people that got me through it. Please keep strong.xxx

    T xxx

  • I hate that this seems so hard for you Gemma :( wish i could help.You seem to be having one Hell of a battle with yourself,yet at this stage,things ought to be pretty smooth.

    I know you won't give up giving up though cos I would come after you ;) and you know that that is no idle threat!

    It's very hard Max, know it's unusual - didn't feel like this the last time I stopped and then I didn't even want to - but it's b.loody tough now. No idea why either.

    Lol, would I have to go into hiding then?

    I'll do my best hun, seriously this isn't how most quitters feel, I'm just weird :p

    Maybe I quit at the wrong time or whatever?

    After today I'm not starting this battle again for a bit.

    Know I'm wimping out but after nearly blowing the whole thing it's the lesser of 2 evils :/ xxx

  • And I have so many :(

    Fed up with this.

    Hey Gemma

    It it makes you feel any better you are not alone I quit for 4 months and for the last 3 weeks have been back on the REAL thing soo disappointed in myself having got so far, don't put yourself through that on top of everything else :)

  • Hey Gemma

    Aww I'm sorry!!

    At least you know you *can* do it and you'll know what to expect wen you're ready to try again :)

  • Hiya Gemma,

    Do you know, you have been my hero on this forum?

    It's difficult to explain but you have hung in there through tough times and I haven't. It has helped me no end knowing that you have got through. There are days where I want to throw the towel in but it's people like you that show me the way so to speak.

    I know you'll keep going Gemma, I don't flipping care how and thank you for being who you are petal x

    Aww thanks Molly, that's lovely :)

    Thanks to this place, somehow I've hung in there - it really does come down to the people here 'cos I know some would be gutted if I caved, while even my dad would just say something like "oh you're smoking again, knew you would" with a lot of eye rolling etc :p

    Ooh and I didn't like the taste of fags when I smoked 20+ of them a day, would be really minging now :eek:

    But flipping heck, you've had a stinking year and I think you've done brilliantly to cope like you have - you should be proud of yourself for not lapsing back into smoking!!

    I'll keep going on and when I'm ready, will drop the dummy :D

  • Glad you are feeling better Gemma Lou. This quitting smoking lark is not easy believe me I have had a few wobbles but smoking doesn't make anything better it just makes things worse so keep that in mind and think of the money you save too. You are also young enough for it to make big difference to your long term health.There are lots of positive things to think about one of them that keeps me going is my clothes and hair don't smell and I can smell my shampoo all day. The Ecig is an alternative in the short term if it helps.xxx

    Thanks Haze :)

    Must say that having no spent £2,106 (lol, and the rest) on fags is fab!! Looked up on Waitrose the other night and my old ones were £8.05 for 20, as I was on 20-25 a day and was worrying 'cos I was smoking more, that's a hell of a lot of fags and money by now :eek:

    Hope it's helping my health, although I never noticed at the time, or just didn't care it must have hurt me :eek:

    Wish I'd not caved to the e-cig but heck it's better than caving to the real ones :eek:

    xxx

  • Hiya Gemma, really sorry to see you struggling so much lately, this quitting, is such a hard thing to do, do what ever it takes, you will get there in the end i'm pretty sure about that with you.

    Stay strong Gemma you have all of us behind you

    Netti x

    Thanks Netti, that means a lot!!

    Will keep plodding on :) x

  • I could murder a fag right now, not fair!!

  • Thanks hun :) Not going to have one but it annoys me that he won't leave me alone!!

  • You beat cigs - you can beat the e-cig too! You can do this!!!! We are all in your corner ready to fight the fight like you have been for us so many times! You hang in there Gemma!

  • Dont Gemma trust me they taste disgusting and you will feel so guilty after. As you have

    probably seen I gave in what a mistake. You can win this battle cyber hug coming your way

    Thanks, that helps!!

    Sorry you had a slip Debbie :)

    You beat cigs - you can beat the e-cig too! You can do this!!!! We are all in your corner ready to fight the fight like you have been for us so many times! You hang in there Gemma!

    Thanks Melzee, am definitely not taking on the e-cig yet, it's hard enough keeping off the real ones :eek: but i know people here will help when my time's right :)

  • Hello, Gemma!:)

    You have helped me so much and I am feeling very strong today, so I am sending some of my spare strength down the M5 to you. Does it have to go along the A37 too:confused: I'm hopeless past Exeter (place of my birth), but in any case it should be with you in about 10 seconds.........

    ............. Can you feel it yet? It should be making you feel taller and stronger. All the better to kick his scrawny, scraggy little ass! :D

    You don't need to cry yet anyway, it's just a b*gger having to fight it all the time :/

  • Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

  • I've got my bounce back, sorry for being a whiny cow over the last couple of weeks :o :(

  • That's good to hear. I'm a lot brighter now because I got the fingerprints :)

  • That's good to hear. I'm a lot brighter now because I got the fingerprints :)

    Oh that's brilliant, I bet you're so excited!! :D :D

    Yah daisy gone and tigger back xx

    Lol, I have no idea why I got myself so wound up, can be b.loody silly sometimes!!

    Gemma is bouncing!!! :D

    No more Eeyore and much more Tigger,way to go Gemm X :p

    *Boing*

  • Next stop: 9 months without a fag in my mouth, how brilliant is that?

    What helped was this place - I couldn't imagine coming on here and telling you lovely lot that I'd failed after all this time and was smoking again - even though I was planning my "sorry" post :eek:

    Kat, as usual, dragged me through by the hair :p

    And I was thinking about it - after almost 9 months, putting a fag in my mouth and lighting it - how would i feel afterwards? Well, I can think back to the last time I smoked, drizzly and cold, stuck outside and smoking this thing as fast as possible because *newsflash stupid Gem* It tasted foul, smelled horrible and I didn't enjoy it!!

    Can remember lots of times when i smoked and didn't enjoy it - wondering what the hell I was doing to myself (more and more often 'cos towards the end I was smoking a lot :() not liking it but carrying on because I was convinced that I did "usually" and being stuck out in the cold and wet most of the time. Not good times!!

    Why the hell was I psyching myself up to go through all that again?

    Can be properly daft sometimes :S

  • Soooo pleased you've got your bounce back petal but for heaven's sake don't use onomatopoeic words like that near Maxwell!:eek::D

    Here's to better days hon xxx

    Ooh heck, that's a good point!!

    Even buggerlugs showing up hasn't spoiled my good mood or made me want a fag :D

    Hope I didn't pull too much out sweetpea!:eek::D Nah, we both know that it was the threat of being locked in your room and fed through a catflap that did it! And the thought of reducing Maxwell to tears!

    Am having to put my extensions in :eek: :(

    Lol, I can't imagine Max crying - but that would be a sad sight!!

    WOOHOO, that is MAJOR progress!!!:D:D:D:D:D

    Attagirl, you hold on tight to that positivity, it'll carry you through :cool:

    Heck yeah :D :D

    Am feeling really really good now, like a weight's been lifted from my shoulders!!

  • 9 months ago today I had my epiphany - smoking stinks.

    Decided to stop but didn't set a date. Marked this decision by sparking up a second fag - as you do :p

    9 months ago tomorrow I was talking to my (now) quit buddy in Leper's Corner and she said "let's do it now"

    9 months ago tomorrow night I smoked my last fag.

    Nobody who knows me, least of all me, thought I'd still be a non-smoker now :p

  • GEMMA LOU!!!!!!! :D:D

    A burst of bright sun from between the clouds,it's you shouting out loud and proud that you are still a WINNER :cool:

    Just dwell on that a minute Gem-9 months NINE MONTHS not smoking filthy cancer sticks-that will be doing huge good to your body,your bank account and to your self esteem cos you are beating the demon!! Dead proud of you,woman! And happy 9 Months quit!! :D:D:D X

    Thanks Max!!

    I've had a horrible couple of weeks, really thought I was going to fail (Kat thought i already had :eek:) but now, no way!!

    I will beat the e-cig, just got to wait for the when and the how :p

    Am going to celebrate - Gem style - on the 10th :D

  • WOOHOO!!! NINE WHOLE MONTHS!!! :D:D:D

    Way to go sweetpea, that Penthouse is getting awfully close now!

    WOOHOO Thanks hun!!

    Still got a couple of days to go before I can celebrate but I'm going to make it to 9 months and then to the Penthouse :D

    And you're not far behind!!

  • Was talking to one of my Facebook friends today, don't see her much but she stopped smoking back in the New Year - anyway she did the same thing a lot of us have done in the past, "just one" on a night out and now she's full time smoking again. She is gutted about it, and when I said I'd been struggling she gave me a very strong talking to not to go there again.

    Feel really bad for her 'cos she was full of it before, even though she found it hard (she's a couple of months older than me and has smoked a lot for a long time) she loved being fag free. :(

    That was nearly me, so from her to anyone on here who's struggling, don't do it!!

  • Gem wise words for such a young lady. You are a little star you have done so well. Never lok back you are onwards and upwards to the magic 1 year milestone x

    Thanks Debbie :)

    Am so pleased not to have caved in - before long I'd be feeling like my friend is :/ x

  • Good. Goodgoodgood. Gemma-Lou there's no way I'm taking the final few stairs to the penthouse in three months time without glancing sideways to see you right there with me. Final quarter, not long now! :)

    Thanks Hawk!!

    Not going to fail now :D

    The Penthouse is going to be full soon!!

    How are you getting on?

  • Keep going Conqueror!

    I'm good thanks Gemma!

    Generally just really busy, and wishing I still had half an hour a day to browse the posts here and add a few of my own as I really feel as though I'm no longer contributing as much as I'd like. Or at all really :(

    On the smoking front I'm not giving in, have the odd nostalgic pang but mostly not really thinking about it too much. I have to say I had one wtf?:confused: day a couple of weeks back where I'd leave the office, get out of the car, go for a walk, whatever and just think 'fag' - really peculiar but I've seen others at this stage report the same thing too.

    All in all pretty comfortable though, and MUST get back here regularly.

    You're heading for success - keep it going conqueror! :)x

    I'm really glad you're doing so well :D

    A lot of us quit this amount of time have had wobbles about this time - either there's something in the air or it's a 8-9 month thing? B.loody annoying but it goes!!

    It'll be nice to see you back more :) x
