Day 6 and worse day yet

Sorry always seem to be going on but it does help to rant.

Should have gone to aqua aerobics this morning got all ready and then could not face going. Feel really awful thinking about fags all of the time and not doing anything to help myself.

Ate big bag of nuts last night why not the melon which was waiting for me in the fridge.

First thing this morning internet was down so couldn't come on forum which helps me.

Kept thinking I could just have a fag and would feel better but it wouldn't be one it would be thousands.

I will not smoke today but I may go crazy in the process

Hope you are all having a good positive day, maybe I ell one day xxxxx

    Aww you're having a horrible time :(

    (((hugs)))

    You're right, you can't have just the one - fags are like wolves 'cos they come in packs :eek: and it's fab you're holding onto that!!

    It's fine to have a rant, never apologise for that 'cos that's what this place is for :) and it does help to get it off your chest. And nthing wrong with having a mope and bit of a pig out too - do anything for the first 2-3 weeks that makes you feel better except smoke, then you'll be fine. It *does* get better!!

    Hang in there hun you're nearly a week free xx

  • Gilly, it WILL get better, honestly it will. Just keep taking those baby steps. If eating a shed-load of nuts helps so be it. After all, nuts are good for you. :)

    Do whatever feels right for you. It's early days yet- you can get back to your usual pursuits when you feel able to.

    Just don't give in. Would you really want to have to go through the last 6 days again? You nearly have a week under your belt and you're doing SO well :)

  • No I don't want to go through all of this again and that is what will make me stay at it. I am just so cross at myself because I think I am making myself more miserable than I need be.

    It's like I am doing something good for myself and I have to ruin it. Like a self fulfilling prophecy that I can't do it when I am doing it. So let's make everything else in my life miserable, I don't know is it me telling myself that I cannot be happy without smoking ,that is a load of c**p I know! just need a kick to get on with my life.

    Is this what fags do to us xxxxxx

    Gilly, have you got the Allen Carr book? Even if you read it years ago, read an updated version. It really helps with the mindset. Also, if you get totally desperate, try an ecig. It's 100 times better than going back to the fumers!

  • Thanks for that.

    Have read Allan Carr book a few times years ago and remember the mindset he advocated and I do believe it to be the right one.

    May give it another go.

    As you say kat something to take your mind of it just wish mine was obsessive cleaning as opposed to playing computer games at least I would have a clean house xxxxx

    When you run out of things to read,this forum is great....well great for putting you off fags.:)

    Gilly today is rubbish but the week end is almost here and that could be loads better.Keep saying NO to them craves and they will soon go when they get no head time.....your doing really well,better than you think,and hopefully we will all be here next week:D

  • I totally sympathise cos day 6 for me was my worst day by far!

    Day 7 was much better honestly, so hang in there x

  • Hang in there, it's an emotional rollercoaster but will be so worth the pain and tears. You have already come so far! Keep going x
