Day 1 take 2

Here I am again and a little wiser than 5 days ago.

Thanks all for your support last night, if not for that I would not be up here and ready to go again.

I know we all have to find our own way but at the moment and what happened before is should I push myself to do things or is it ok to sit around doing not a lot really.

For example oh has gone for bike ride which I enjoy too and would have went had I been smoking. So I have not gone and that is fine but am I doing thr right thing or should I push myself, would epwelcome any comments on this.

Feel so positive at the moment but well aware that this can change in a flash.

Love to all and hope you are having a good day.

  • Hi Gilly,

    Sorry about your blip but a big slap on the back (and a virtual hug) for getting back on the horse so quickly :).

    I think you should do whatever feels most comfortable for you at any given moment. It really does seem to be different for everyone. I found (still find come to that) that the more active I am the easier it is but for you it may well be that a few duvet days will be just what you need to get through it.

    Just go with what your body and mind are telling you and keep on focusing on how wonderful it will be to be smoke-free for good. :D

  • Hiya :)

    Well done for getting back on the wagon straight away - it's loads easier to do it again while you've got the momentum behind you :)

    You know you don't like smoking, you know it only makes you feel rubbish so it's all good to go :D

    Um, about pushing yourself, that's entirely up to you!! Exercise is fab for making you feel good, and it's good for beating craves *but* if you feel like relaxing that's good too - just make sure you don't get bored 'cos boredom can be a trigger!!

    Keep that positive feeling, grab Nic and smack him :p Kat is fab for violent imagery like that!!

    You can do it hun x

  • Thanks for your comments, they feel so good when you feel on a lonely road.

    Well did go out today, after I posted earlier a friend rang and asked if we wanted to go to the beach. Must admit I nearly didn't answer phone because didn't really want to speak with anyone, how sad is that.

    Anyway went out just got back and feel okish. Didn't say to friends I had stopped smoking, none of them smoke and it may have crushed me a little if they did not see what a big deal it is for me. I think that's why I needed to post as soon as I got back.

    Hope you have all had a good day.

    Aww that's fab!!

    Some fresh air and company is a pick me up and that's got to help a bit :)

    Oooh and that;s why it's great on here - everyone knows that it *is* a big deal, and it reall matters to us :D

    well done :cool:

  • At least you have picked yourself straight up again.There isn't one person here who hasn't done the same as you(me dozens of times):(

    Know you will get there in the end :D

  • Hi Gill,

    Sorry to hear you have had a little blip but we've all been there, me more than most! Glad you have gone straight back to the quit, leaving less time between attempts means you will crack it easier as u know what to expect and for me personally I have found the withdrawal not so bad the quicker I get back to it, this time I have honestly had no cravings at all apart from mood swings this week 😁😁 good luck with it, you will have done a week before you know it.

  • Good luck! You can do this. You have no idea how much my life improved since stopping. It's really, really worth it. The "pain" and hardwork involved is very short lived. On thinking back, it's a small blip. A tiny portion of my life. It felt big at the time, but just a small push and you'll be past it.
