Day 1 for the final time

Feeling really angry at the minute which I'm taking as a positive as I've motivated myself to stick on a patch and beat this mother f**ker once and for all!

So sick of this battle but it's only me who can do this, no book or app can do it, just me! So I'm digging deep this time starting with my reasons:

1) for my son, I want to live a long life and be there for him and his family. To be there for all his times of need and for all his achievements. I want to be his role model, make him proud and set a good example.

2)I don't want to get lung cancer, COPD or heart problems and suffer a slow painful death

3) I want to show love to myself by looking after myself

4) I want to look and smell nice

5) I don't want a death stick to have control over me

6)I'm tired of the breathlessness and sore chest

7) I want another child

8) my teeth will be whiter

9)we will have more money to make family memories like holidays

10) my mind will be less chaotic

11) I won't have to worry about when I can smoke next or when I can't smoke

12)my taste and smell will be better

13) I will protect those I love and everyone else from second hand smoke

14) I will no longer feel like a pathetic smelly stupid drug addict

I have written these out on paper and will carry them with me for difficult times!

I will beat this!

That's it Mrs M - you've got your goal - keep that bit of paper with you all the time - when the craves come read it and they will pass.

You can do this x

Absolutely brilliant news! The anger streak is a good emotion too, definitely get angry with Nic O'Tine he's a low life good for nothing... Bit like my ex :D ;)

Really proud of you, it takes guts to get back on that horse plus your reasons each and every one of them are worthwhile YOU have the control not that pig Nic, good luck freedom fighter comrade :) xxx

Thanks folks

Think that's been my mistake, thinking something would just click and I'd be free!

Now I know it will be a battle and one which I will win!!

You may have lost the last skirmish but that don't mean you're going to lose the war :D
