Please tell me I'm not going mad! :)

Ok so I can't believe I am saying this out loud but I'm hoping someone can relate..... I am now on day 39 in my quit but for some reason I am still fantasising about cigs.... E.g watching I'm a celeb and Lucy chuffing away 24/7 makes me jealous god that sounds so ridiculous!! It's true tho, there she is in her hammock smoking her fag absoloutely loving it and there me with the plastic equivalent... Soooo not fair hahaha also I notice I am drawn to the smell of someone smoking its smells divine only fresh smoke tho..... Ok I have officially sounded like a lunatic now I shall leave it there.... :))))

  • Hahaha yes I get ur point and to be fair she looks a lot older than her 36 years :) geez 8months in and still loving the smell of cigs this is going to be a longer more drawn out process than I thought!! I was hoping by 3 months I would be sorted lol that's what all the leaflets say :)

  • All true Felic but I still want to marry Lucy just for the smoking!

    Hahaha GENIUS :))

  • All the things you are experiencing are normal and will fade with time. It really does get better or none of us would stay quit would we? Keep going and soon you wont like the smell and, as has already been said, remember why you wanted to quit:) You are doing the best thing for your health, purse, and, self esteem:)

  • I am happy I seen this post.. I go crazy everytime I hear a song that mentions smoking or see someone smoking on TV. I get the same jealous feeling.. and I too think I'm crazy for having such feelings!! Thanks for making me feel like I am not alone!! :-)

    Funny things is I KNOW i don't want to start smoking again.. but that doesn't help the urges pass any quicker. Somedays I get urges that last for hours :(

    Hi Heather,

    I totally agree with u about cravings lasting hours, some days it's all I think about and I'm driven to distraction hahah, I must say tho it is such an emotional rollercoaster, I was beside myself a couple of days ago but yesterday and today seems different, almost as tho I've resigned myself to the fact I don't smoke anymore, yes I want one like crazy, but I can't have one end of.

    Also I am looking forward to all the January 1st quitters coming on here, will be good to support them and will also strengthen my resolve I think because I couldn't stand going back to day 1 not for all the tea in china!! Keep up the good work :) xx

  • I forgot completely about the Jan1st quitters! oh that will be a welcome challenge. I myself recall attempting to quit on jan 1st so will be nice now to be in a position to really help.

    Good on u for thinking of those people whom we havent even heard of yet. That really shows the kind natured person you really are. Hugs

    Awww thanks chuck ;) it's just I know how horrendous I felt on day 3 and basically even though I still feel cr4p I don't feel as cr4p as day 3 so that's progress right there hahaha :)
