Gemma & Gemma kick fags together!

Day 2 would usually be sneaking out for smoke while kids eat breakfast. Having a cuddle with them instead. Cravings definitely there but I know having one would make me sick. Feeling pretty relaxed this morning, I'll be quicker getting ready without sneaking outside so I can relax a bit.

Chemist appt at 10 for first non smoking check in

    Hope you have a good day 2 Gemma, and good luck with your appointment!!

  • Have a good Day 2 to you both :)

    And congratulations- you're both doing really, really well :D

    Good luck hun :)

    Thanks Skiddaw, am being a right moody cow at the mo but at least I smell nice :p

  • Just back, carbon monoxide reading was 3!!

    It's not a full 24 hrs for me until 12.30pm so I'm really pleased with that.

    Spent my fag money on a tonne of fruit and one of those special long candle lighters which means that I can throw out all my normal lighters today no excuses. All ashtrays and secret piles of fag ends outside will be going today too.

    That's fab, well done :)

    Don't know if this is a good idea or no, but maybe keep a couple of fag ends (if they're dry) in a jar so when you crave you can sniff then - it's b.loody vile!!

    I've got one of those pocket type ashtrays and have left about 4 ends in it, having a sniff of that is enough to make me want to heave, not smoke :eek::eek:

    Good idea about buying candle lighters too, if I can bear to sling my bear lighters (see what i did there? :p) I'll do that!!

  • Well done both of you, taking it one day at a time is by far the way to crack this.

    Onwards to Day 3 :)

  • Tough day today. Craving like mad and completely knackered.

    Have a client here at 8 so need to get ready to be super smiley for an hour then I can sleep. Many jubbly lollies, chai lattes and sweets consumed today. Many.

    Good luck, I'm sure they'll appreciate the new non-smoker you :D

  • I hope today is as bad a it gets. Was fine this morning but from about 11 it feels like one long crave with no let up in between. Can't wait for bed tonight.

    I hope so too, for both of us :)

    Sorry you had a proper stinker of a day

    They do say the first 3 days are the real stinkers so hopefully by the weekend we'll both be on the up :D

    Don't know about you but I could sleep for days!!

  • Yep I really could. Unsleeping so heavily too and struggling to get up in the mornings. This is my best shot though so not giving in. It would taste disgusting a did probably feel sick anyway

    Even better, you're on Champix so not only would it be vile but it wouldn't do anything for you at all!!

    You won't give in hun, this is rough but it's not as bad as the alternative!!

  • Thanks lovely we've struggled on and finished day 2 - yay for us!!

  • ^^ what Max said ^^

    Plus the obligatory 'phwoar!!!!!' of course.

    I found day one tough. Day 2 half as tough. Ditto day 3.

    Basically each day seemed twice as easy to deal with as the previous one, with very rare exceptions. And even the exceptions have been OK.
