Hello.......I'm back for good

Hello it's me Carolrose back for one last quit.Im nearing the end do day 3 using low dose patches,an app and my determination diary.

Iv been lurking for a few days and seeing as I'm on the same day as The two Gemma's thought I just as we'll join you guys:)

Last serious quit was 6 mth in sept 2012 and have had a few halfhearted tries since then.But I feel this is my time to quit,feel time is running out if I'm going to live out my life as a non smoker and healthy.

So here goes......havnt been too bad up to yet but from previous attempts I know it's still fresh in my mind and I feel like I'm ready for all the pitfalls this time......touch wood :)

Gemmalou..sorry youv had such a tough time this time around,but I took a lot of inspiration from you last time round,you were brilliant and I'm sure once past these first few days you will be fine....

  • Oooh welcome back!! And we share a quit day - how fab :D

    Glad you've got off to a good start, it's always a lot easier that way, just hold on to your positivity and you'll be fine :)

    Aww and thanks, it's not been fun but it will be so worth it :D

    We'll inspire each other this time :D xx

  • Iv been reading all the threads from Whyquit and they are not pretty reading..also writing everything down all the gory stuff in a diary and keeping it with me at all times Have to say though that I'm sick and tired of smoking and waking up feeling smoke dried and grotty so started a Heath kick and feel better already......long may it continue but taking it day by day :)

  • Oh it's a horrible feeling isn't it? The manky mouth, the cough, the smell - all of it!! Not to mention the money :eek:

    Glad you're feeling better already, that is fab :D

    Kat73 got me to write down how it felt when I smoked, why it was manky, stuff like that so there's a record of me *not* enjoying it - pretty similar to your book :)

    Think that actually writing things down really helps too 'cos it helps things to stick in your brain better than talking or thinking, so your determination diary should be brilliant!!

    You can do this, and you will do it :D

  • Good to have you with us Carol, almost at the end of day 3 now

  • More than anything I'd like to be in the Penthouse,and I would be now if I stuck to it( kicking myself) because the one thing you can be sure of when you have that puff it's only a matter of time before your trying to quit again....it's like a yo yo effect that never getting anywhere...

    Anyway thanks for the welcome everyone :D

  • Count on it ;)
