Day 19: from crave to ick in 5 minutes :o

Hiya

Well day 19 and I had my first "oh wow I want one" moment - was driving in today and there was someone on her way to work puffing away and suddenly *trigger* and I really wanted a fag :eek: But the good bit is that I went via Lidl to get some cakes and buns (YAY they're yummy) and as soon as I got out of my car I could smell it. Fag smoke :eek: someone halfway across the car park was smoking and the usual crowd of smokers round the door were puffing away too.

Well, the crave that had been building in my tummy suddenly evaporated because it smells

:eek::eek:VILE:eek::eek:

How ever could I have sucked that into my poor lungs for so long and liked it? Worse, how could i have been mostly blissfully unaware of how b.loody awful it smells?

Was like getting a slap across the face with a wet fish, lol.

So, Day 19 and I don't smoke and won't smoke today!!

  • Gem you tackled that well very impressed. If u hate the smell thats good as its something else u can use to strengthen your mindset. Enjoy the cakes, I just had scotch pancakes hot with butter yum x

    YAY thanks!!

    It kind of hit me hard, getting the crave like that, then getting the ickness - but at least I do find the smell vile so that banishes any temptation *smokes a post it note*

    Lol I don't want to share out the cakes, but I'll enjoy my blueberry muffin :D

    Ooh I love Scotch pancakes!! x

  • Morning,you did well Gem and it will stand you in good stead for the next big crave.:)

    Afm....still plodding on and feeling good.

    Teeth looking good

    Skin looking good

    Chest feeling better

    Glad you're still plodding on hun, we're sooo close to the 3 weeks now :D :D

    Oooh and I did even better than I tohught 'cos I didn't have my patch on, dopey me forgot it, but luckily Kat had nagged me to keep some spares dotted about!!

  • Well for me " smoking is not an option " this time.its my mantra.

    I keep saying it and it helps the physiological part......

    Just wish physical cravings would hurry up and go!:)

    Oh I so know what you mean!!

    Am still recovering a bit from this morning - did *not* expecy a sudden cave like that but smoking is definitely not an option!!

    I'm repeating to myself that I didn't enjoy smoking when I did it, hated the taste, the smell, the expense, the tight chest, the coug.

    So yeah, not happening. The biggest thing though is the misery that I had knowing I'd have a fag, then need another so soon after. Was a trap :eek:

    Sounds like you've got the mental bit sorted, just got to wait for the physical bits to naff off :)

  • Each hour you stay off the cigs,your body is fixing itself Gemma :p it is happening and you need do nothing but carry on as you are.

    Well done for that cracking roundhouse karate kick that splattered Nicdemon flat on his pig ugly face!!;)

    YAY thanks!!

    I reckon he thought there was a chink in my armour but even (although I didn't know at the time) patchless he didn't get me and fags reek!!

    I love that I don't like the fresh smoke smell 'cos I used to really like it :S

  • A bit late in the day Gemma but glad to see you beating those cravings again. Now stick at it cos I plan to give you the best seats at the premier of 'I won't smoke - the musical!'

    I knew the little bugger wouldn't keep you down for long!

  • You are a wee star Gemma. Well done for resisting your cravings and coming through even stronger :D

    Aww thanks Mark!! am looking at it as a blip, or maybe a trial run but know this is for real and for ever :cool:

    Ooooh I'd love to see that :D

    Aww thanks!!

    Never had a crave come so fast or go so fast either but yes it's reminded me partly of why I quit :D

  • So now, couple of glasses of wine, worried about the wind tomorrow and no extra NRT for 2 hours and I have absolutely no desire to smoke at all, not even a little puff.

    I can, have one cigarette and a lighter that's too cute to sling out but nope, don't want to!!

    Proud isn't the word :D

    3 weeks ago I couldn't manage much more than an hour without a fag, let alone 3 without a piece of Nicorette - this is really going well :D
