Moving on and a shaking and a grooving!

Hello quit gang!

Well I have moved to week 3 (although i do feel I have entered this room early as I am on week 2 and 1 day? but I am presuming I am right to enter this room?

Anyway, feeling stronger by the day, and funnily enough, I am rather enjoying my quit-including the craves, am I crazy??

I feel as if I can say that I will never smoke again, even as early into the quit journey, I am not too complacent, and aware of my triggers, and prepare myself mentally for this as best as I can.

Hey! and guess what quitters! My other half has joined the quit today...he is sat huffing and puffing as we speak, and has decided to go down the moody **** route-but I will support him (promise)

Love you and leave you for now xx

  • There are a few people for whom quitting can be not only relatively painless but also FUN you might be one of those!

    Maybe I am just crazy? It has been a battle, going from 20-25 a day to cold turkey ain't a picnic....just a crazy foodfight instead-I must admit though-those dam craves, just make me laugh at myself!

    I think also Max, I stopped, because I really really wanted to stop this stupidness, throw a pack of 15 away in disgust and said 'thats it yer f*ckers I'm done with you! I have quit and failed several times-but mentally I was not equipped..I used think 'well i will try.....' this time that hasn't entered my head...instead I said 'thats' it done' just that tiny tiny difference in attitude has made the quit different and exciting...strange huh? x

  • You are dead right Sweet the successful quit is achieved really in your mind,and that subtle difference in attitude may seem small but can make a GIANT difference to success.Believe in yourself and you can achieve wonders-if you doubt yourself,you will doubt your ability to hold the quit,like a self fulfilling prophesy,you will eventually fail..I never doubted myself and I have had almost NO craves at all,I fancy a cig now and then but fancying one and craving are totally different.And it is easy to boot away a 'fancy' takes a few seconds.If you read the 1 year plus section you will find lots of delighted ex smokers-if you find one and look at their very first posts they are just like ours same doubts,nerves,worries.. what they did is KEEP GOING they didn't fail they fought through the first 3-5 weeks after which things became much easier,over time many of them have forgotten about fags completely -which is amazing isn't it?

    You show all the qualities to go all the way Sweet but beware complacency and beware being ambushed by Nic,he is a slimy sneaky git and he can jump out on you with no warning. Great positive post...love it! cheers Max :D

    ^^^WOT HE SAID^^^

    It's all in the mind; look at the early posts of all the long term quitters on this forum and you can see that early mindset that leads to long term success - there is something that shines out in the posts of those that 'get it'.

    There is suddenly some new blood on the forum who are shining out in the same way - some names that I've no doubt will still be around in six months time:D

  • SweetB....I am so happy for you that you are doing so well! When you think back to those first few days.........:eek::D

    You sound so confident and happy and I reckon it's because you have escaped from the CAGE that the nicotine monster keeps his smokers trapped in. It's freedom and it's great!:D

    Keep up the excellent work. Enjoy the freedom, the better health and the money saved and we'll get to the penthouse at roughly the same time as each other!:D
