what an anti climax!

Merry christmas everyone! bit late i know but hey its still the season!

I wanted to come to just say that im really shocked how nice and easy not smoking at christmas was! tbh the worry over if i get a craving was worse than any craving. wasnt even a proper craving more a thought of 'I want a cig' then it was gone!

im not being complacent though, i know there will be strong urges at some points in time, but it gives me confidence to have done one of those 'cant enjoy without smoking' days done! xx

That's fab Nikki, am really pleased for you, and Kat too!!

Can't begin to say how inspiring it is to hear people not having more than a brief want


Well done Nikki, I was in the company of 2 smokers for lunch (they smoked outside) then 3 smokers at tea time!

Pleased to say I did not want one :D



You seem to have such a strong quit and have embraced not smoking at Xmas - good on you and everyone else who had a smoke free one.

I'm sure we all had thoughts of smoking but when your mind is set right it's a thought and not a crave.


aww thank you so much for the encouragement guys i really appreciate it :D

Yes I feel very different this quit. I genuinely dont want to be a smoker. I would like a smoke but dont want to be a smoker and there really is a difference. So i just dont have that 'one' smoke I want because I dont want to then have the one after. Now I have that very clear in my head I know what I have to do and can be happy not smoking because its what i want. I just wanted to share that incase anyone is reading and feeling abit of a wobble because im sure thats how all of us feel! but maybe some people who are new to this dont realize wanting a fag doesnt mean you want to be a smoker again.

Now to get through new years ha ha :rolleyes: xx
