Day 13 - not unlucky I hope :p

Hiya :)

Well after being exhausted and in pain yesterday am feeling a lot better thanks to a course of wine therapy last night and a long sleep!!

Wouldn't moan too much about that but it is quit related - the ulcers, dodgy sleeping pattern etc - think the gum is probably not helping my tongue 'cos I have to chew and nicotine *is* a poison - and reducing that gives me the grumps :mad:

Anyway Nic was using that - have always been disgustingly healthy as a smoker (more than I deserve tbh) and suddenly on this quit I've felt pretty poo health wise which I'm not used to!! So he was using that as a reason for me to say stuff it and start up again.

*But* while I feel pretty poo at the mo, that will get better- know that 'cos it's ust my body recovering, but smoking for the rest of my life would make me properly ill, so that's not an option.

It's odd how he uses every opportunity to have a go though isn't it?

Well today I won't smoke, just have a lazy day and spend some of my savings perhaps? :D

That'll cheer me up!!

Here's to a good smoke free day for all of us!!

    Sounds like you've been having a rough second week sweetie. Well done for staying strong! You still seem very determined, despite the fact that you must be feeling a bit poop right now.

    Enjoy your lazy day and remember that this is two weeks gone WITHOUT a smoke and WITHOUT that naughty e-cig!

    You can so do this :D xxx

  • Gems I'm so pleased to see you just behind me still, I look out for you everyday, keep at it, yes spend some of that money, I love the treats of quitting, guilty free ones for me as well :D

    YAY thanks :D

    You're doing fab too :cool::cool:

    The treats are fab - it's lovely to think they're all free 'cos we'd have smoked that money :eek:

    Have saved £152 already so there's a good shopping trip coming!!

  • Glad the tongue is better Gem. Laptop has been taken off me lol but can snick on using my phone lol. Keep going girlie x

    LOL naughty :p

    Yeah I'm definitely on the mend which is fab - still can't talk much (probably a good thing :p) but the best thing is that I don't smoke any more WOO

    You're doing so well too - a month is fab!!

    Oooh it's not been fun but it's kind of a reminder what poisonous stuff I've been inhaling :eek: Hopefully this will be the end of it though.

    I am definitely determined, no way do I want to put myself through this again and smoking for the rest of my life is *not* an option!!

    Am feeling a bit rough but so proud of myself!! xxx

  • I don't know how much I've saved because I really only smoked my OH's :o I've spent far more time being quit than smoking but I do think I might have saved enough for an ipad :p

    LOL you treat yourself, you deserve it!!

  • Gemma I wish I could reach all the way to Cornwall and give you a MAHOOSIVE hug :D:D xx

    You are doing fantastically!!!!!!

    Nearly 2 weeks,no crappy ECig on the horizon,your body is now rejigging itself to a fabulous poison free lifestyle,you have a wonderful determined attitude..:p the cash is rolling I say ROLLING in......

    Who loves ya baby?

    Well I do and so do we all!!!!!!!! xxx

    Aww thanks Max!!

    Am doing it properly this time :D :D and it will be my last quit!!

    It's taken a hell of a lot out of me, but that's not 'cos I quit it's cos I smoked in the first place. oooh and having all that money and making my life longer is so worth it!!

    It keeps hitting me what I don't have to worry about now I don't smoke. It's lovely being free of all that, and i've got so much more free time too!!

  • Hey Gemma

    Very well done on getting to day 13, hope it is better for you than yesterday. The way I have been feeling these past couple of days, I'm not really well placed to offer advice, but keep up the good work. You have to use what works for you to stay quit.

    Hope you have a wonderful smoke free day, and get spending!! :D

  • YAY thanks!!

    At least I don't feel so rubbish, lol so that's good!!

    Do have a sort of empty feeling - it's silly 'cos in the end I hated smoking when i did it, but it's an adjusting thing and stupid though it sounds, smoking was kind of comforting to me? Especially when I was stressed. Weird, but I'll have to find something else to do 'cos no way am I going back to the fags!!

    I hope you have a better day today, we will get through it and it'll be so good when we're there :D :D

  • Day 13 feels great doesn't it :D

    Hope you have a fab day n treat yourself, you deserve it x

  • YAY thanks!!

    At least I don't feel so rubbish, lol so that's good!!

    . Weird, but I'll have to find something else to do 'cos no way am I going back to the fags!!

    Might I suggest a little retail therapy.....works every time:D

    Definitely!!

    Had a lovely cheesy roll and a cheese twist for lunch 'cos cheese is one of my habits I *won't* give up :p and they were really yummy :D

    Am going to have a browse of some bits later too, something pink probably, lol

    How's you? x

  • Might I suggest a little retail therapy.....works every time:D

    Ooooh what a fab idea!! :cool::cool:

  • Soooooooooo proud of you little one! You're doing really well, starting to come out of the really rotten physical reaction quitting brings and you're sounding really strong mentally which is a priceless weapon in your a*r*s*e*n*a*l (it drives me BONKERS that I can't use that word normally on here!). Do fill us in on your purchases today, make yourself something totally scrummy to eat now that your taste buds are zinging and fab and see if you can stay awake to join me for a few glasses tonight given our epic fail of last night (you sofa snoozer you!).

    Rock on petal, you're doing FANTASTIC!:D:D:D

    Think they should ban "united" as well :p :p

    Aww thanks hun :) really don't want to go through all this again - it was pretty foul, still ain't great so this has to be it!!

    My cheesy bits were so yummy, much nicer for not being a smoker any more and even nicer for not "needing" a fag straight after :D

    Going to have a browse in a mo and play a game - lazy i know but hey :p

    Oooh and yes!! I'm so sorry about that hun, dipped out stupidly early :eek: and didn't wake up for ages - think I missed you by like 5 minutes too :(

  • Hope you are feeling a bit better now Gemma-Lou and you are enjoying your Saturday. That 'empty feeling' will pass with time, all your ailments will pass with time so you just stick with it cos you are doing great:)

    Aww that's good :D

    How lovely to have free treats - all paid for by the nicotine monster!!

    I ended up getting distracted by games, so haven't bought anything *yet* but that's something for tomorrow!!

    Gem I truly believe this is our forever quit. So glad to see remaining strong despite all the crap old nic tries to throw at you xx

    Oooh yes this is it this time!!

    It's our time hun, I'm sure of it!! xx

  • Gemma so pleased to see you here and on day 13 already, I know it's not easy in the early days, but it will soon start to get easier, there will be spells when you ask yourself is it worth it, but I assure you will get to a point when you realise life without fags life is so much easier, not being controlled by a stupid plant

    Stay strong Gemma and treat yourself to something pink :D:D

    Netti x

    Aww thanks hun :)

    Ooh I'm braced for the ups and down, know there's going to be some tough bits but it's going to be worth it in the end!!

    Am loving not having to go out for a fag, especially when the weather's rubbish, not spending silly money on fags, sooo much :D

    I think because my feelings about my smoking changed so much it really is my time!!

    Oooh and I'm going to treat myself, don't worry, lol xx
