  • Ahhh Mash sorry your feeling like this! Finger crossed someone hands it in or you!

    Most of all remember smoking will not ease the stress of this situation! It won't bring it back, it will just cause you extra grief as you'll be back in the pit!!

    Shout here as much as you need to! It will work out, it always does :)

  • Keep it going

    It is horrible feeling stressed like that, but smoking didn't help you deal with stress you just think it did. YOU dealt with stress. You are doing really well Mash keep going and I hope you get your work back:)

    Of course you can let off steam, scream shout, cry, punch seven shades out of your pillows, just do anything to get that frustration out - I know it's easier said than done, but try to remember how you dealt with anger before you smoked, if you have to, have a tantrum, whatever works ;)

  • Definitely nothing wrong with letting off steam - go off somewhere and have a rant, no problems :)

    What I do when I'm really stressed is take the empties down to the bottle bank and have a smashing time :p

    It's amazingly relaxing

  • YIPPPEEEE. my course work tuned up even turned up...I' d left it in the studio.. oh eck that means i have to type them up tonight....From now on i'm going to take my time and slow down . rushing about gets me nowhere fast.. had a few nostalgic moments today about smoking. some of my smoking moments were like exclamation marks ,something to mark an occasion. even if it was only the end of a meal.

    Not smoked today and i doubt i will tomorrow either.

    i can see clearly now the smoke has gone.

    M:cool:

  • I am so glad you found your work, mash! What a relief!

    You could use the experience of misplacing your work to reinforce your quit, by reminding yourself that that is the sort of terrifying thing that happens when you take your eye off the ball, be it the work/study ball or the quit ball!

    Nostalgic moments about smoking....... I remember how the last ones tasted when I failed my previous quit attempt...uuuggghhhhh vile. :eek: If ever I am tempted now, I remind myself of how they tasted and it just makes me feel sick. :o How the heck could we ever have enjoyed doing that to ourselves? :confused:

    Anyway, I'm glad that things are now going well.....keep up the excellent work and keep us posted as to your progress. :)

    Gemma that is a fantastic thing to do. I won't forget that thanks !

    Mash,

    Now you wouldn't be able to scream like that if you still smoked because you'd cough your heart up half way through ! Sorry not mocking, but it's true !

    Please come back on here and tell us you found them :(

    Good Luck xx

  • the bottle bank what a smashing idea now all i need are empty jars. i love pushing them in really fast. crash bang wallop. i cant afford the luxury of getting stressd and mithered, thats when i lose things ,burn things leave taps on and pans burning and think about smoking myself to death. now that i've found my course work i can just cruise along at a nice pace.

    It's flipping brilliant!!

    When I quit last year, we'd had both out bathrooms re-done so I took my anger out on the old toilet pans and basins :D :D
