Day 12 :)

Morning all!

Well here we are at day 12, still going and to be honest not really thinking about smoking. Still a bit concerned that I have lulled myself into a false sense of security, but I am so determined this time. Made it to 6 months last time I quit (last year) and fell down by having 'just one' when I was on holiday. I'm not going to make that mistake again!!

Anyway, day 12, feel energised and positive from quitting, just got to start on the weight/eating now. No more mini eggs!!

Right, enough rambling, good luck to all quitters, we will keep on quitting :)

Cheers Jim

    Mini eggs are just too nice, should be a health warning on them. Got 2 big bags for £2 at the shop at the mo. Not good!

    Just got to keep plugging away and not succumb. I was so angry with myself for failing last time. Thing is I ended up smoking even more than I did before I quit! You keep going as well :)

    Going great guns there, well done! And don't get too hung up about the extra rolls (mine are due to Midget Gems :o), once that stinky smoking monster is well and truly smashed to smithereens you can easily take on the battle of the bulge.

    Hey thanks Kat :) I thought about waiting, but as I feel all positive at the mo, I thought I might start tackling it. Was a little disheartened when I got on the scales this morning and they swore at me :( Still onwards and upwards.

    Kat, very well done on your year quit :) When I was lurking on here last year I was about the same date as you (Feb 1) and reading yours and Max's posts really helped me do the quit. You guys kept quit, whilst I am back here! I really should have joined in :( However this time next year.... :)

    Oooh I know how that feels - blew my last quit and like you ended up smoking more than I ever have before :(

    Neither of us will this time though!!

  • Nearly 2 weeks done already, you're not only doing brilliantly but you keep everyone around you positive.

    Oh, and I know just how that dog feels :D

  • We all know how easy it is to throw away our quit after struggling through the early days.:(

    That false sense of security is something we all have to accept as one of the pitfalls of going back.

    I'm really seeing the benefits in my skin and teeth,feeling more energetic too...

    Your doing great:D

    Hi Molly, thank you for your kind words :) I hope that everyone can be positive and make this important change to their lives. It makes me happy to think I might be able to help, even if in just a tiny way :) x

    Hi Carol, its daft really when you think about it, but we all make mistakes. I am so determined to not make that mistake again. I really find the help and support on here a great help. I'm not really a forum kind of guy (too many bad experiences in the past), but everyone on here is so positive and determined, I just wish I had got involved last time! :)

  • Your attitude is still 100% spot on Jim as you head for the 2 week milestone. As I said on your Day 5, I would bet on your quit being permanent. You are keeping a daily log going on this forum but it's obvious that you pretty much forget about smoking the rest of the time. To me, that is your recipe for success. Dwelling on thoughts of smoking and talking about it all day could easily lead to failure.

    keep it up and see you in the penthouse before you know it.

    Hi John

    Thanks mate, I really want to make this quit work, and with the help and support from you guys I am determined to do it. Thank you for having faith in me, it is really heartening to have someone be so positive about my quit! I agree totally with not dwelling on the thoughts/negatives of quitting. My philosophy is to let is all wash over me, not over think it and accept that the long term benefits far outweigh the short term discomfort.

    I will see you in the penthouse!!

    Cheers
