Please tell him to go away!!

Well Day 4 has been a bit of an odd one. Had a bit of a stressful morning so nicodemon decided to stick his two pence in (arsehole)! He didnt win then either :D

Anyways he's trying his luck again. Finish work now shortly until Tuesday, off to Bristol with all the girls tomorrow evening to see my sis, really looking forward to it but nervous at the same time as we'll be out drinking.

Two of the girls are smokers and the other three (four including me :)) aren't, nicodemon is whispering, now is not the time to quit, you may as well give in for this weekend and then start again when you come back. Sure your not going to enjoy your weekend without me. I wish he'd beat it.

I was telling the nurse about me going away and she told me not to worry about it and dwell on it, just take it step by step. I think i'm afraid that i'm too weak and I'll give in so need to give myself a good talking too!

Any advice peeps on how to shut this monster up and tell myself I will enjoy this weekend. Also i'm off tomorrow but dont leave until 5 so afraid of my free time if you know what I mean.

PLEASE HELP!!!

    Now come on keep up that fighting spirit. Trouble is we can all shout out as loud as you like..but IT HAS TO COME FROM YOU.

    If you ponder and worry he will sense your weakness and your quit is over before you say the word. Tell yourself YOU are going to have the best time AS A NON SMOKER. You are NOT giving in. And you are going to return home smelling sweet and successful. Come on Mrs M YOU CAN DO IT. Don't give in now..You are over the toughest days now....

  • Thanks Woo, your right, its me has to fight this bugger. He aint going to go away himself.

    Sorry little moment of weakness, picked myself up and dusted off :)

  • THATS THE SPIRIT ! You CAN DO THIS..COME ON !!!! :) x

  • Hope all is well Mrs Mash, show him who is boss :D

  • I dont know if you have ever seen the cartoon Captain Caveman but that how I imagine a craving to look like in my head. The ridiculous thought of a hairy little man having a temper tantrum in my head always makes me laugh and somehow it takes the edge off the craving. Its almost like if you laugh at it and make fun of it then it takes its power away (if that makes sense)

    I refuse to be controlled by a hairy stroppy caveman anymore ;)

  • Hi Mrs Mash

    You sound just like I used to.

    I had so many attempts at quitting and made it so hard for myself until I realised that I could only do it if I really wanted it badly enough.

    I'm not sure if it was the money I realised I was wasting, the nasty smokers' cough that appeared from time to time or the fact that I knew I didn't really want to be a smoker any more, that finally made me decide to quit once and for all.

    I was probably the world's weakest quitter. I always had an excuse to have 'just one more cigarette' at every opportunity I could find.

    I just want to tell you that you are doing well, just stick to your guns.

    When I embarked on my last quit (almost 12 months ago) there were so many times when I wanted to give in. I missed smoking, thought I would put on weight etc, and for few weeks thought I was depriving myself of something I needed to keep myself happy -I really made hard work of my quit if I am honest.

    It didn't take long to see the benefits of quitting though. My cough disappeared within a couple of days and the physical benefits were almost immediate. It did take a while longer for the psychological benefits to kick in though and it did take me time to adjust to life without smoking.

    You do adjust though and it is such a good feeling when you realise that you don't need to smoke to feel good, that you can enjoy life without cigarettes.

    It is a cliche but it is true - if I can do it then anyone can, and that is the truth.

    Just stick to your guns, it really is so worth it.

    Good luck and best wishes.

    ps I don't get the chance to post much but thankyou to all of you who helped me through the early stages of my quit - you really helped keep me motivated.

    Thanks so much for this post Evie, it was just what I needed to hear. I think my biggest brainwashing which I need to sort is exactly what you said, I need to realise that I don't need cigarettes to be happy or enjoy life.

    I'm going to prove that to myself this weekend :)

    Thanks again xx

  • Hey Mrs Mash, You know how much i have struggled with these ****** fags! I dont know what happened tbh, old me would have smoked by now i know i would have done, but this time as much as I want a Fag, I dont want to be a smoker more. I think thats what has changed, before it was 50/50 like i wanted to quit and smoke lol my cake and eat it. But it just wasnt working and you put your body through so much stress quitting, so being a serial quitter is so bad for your stress!

    You have to chose, In your head what you would rather. Which one do you want more and be honest about it! Im 100% sure you want to quit, I think you just need to get your confidence.

    One of the users on here told me the nicotine monster doesnt exist and its me holding on to smoking. well i think their right and it gave me a good kick up the **** lol so im saying it to you! (thank you who ever that was) :D xxxx

  • Thanks Nikki, it's great to see you doing amazingly and it encourages me. Thanks for the advice, it really is me holding the reins here!

    I love in Northern Ireland Debbie so flew over from Belfast :)

    Sitting enjoying a drink now with my sisters and my nicotine minis lol :)

  • Aww he got a bashing Kat all chuffed today but still in my guard! All set for another bashing today :)
