Progress :D

Hiya :)

Well considering the couple of days I've had :eek: I'm pretty proud of what I just did!!

Where I live there's a narrow lane that is literally wide enough for one car, and some people love to bully other people into reversing, when they haven't bothered to look properly.

Well I met one today (bloke in an Audi :rolleyes: - no offence to Audi drivers on here but where I live they're the worst) and he was sooo sure he could bully me in my little Nova into driving up the bank for His Greatness to pass but I wasn't keen on wrecking my mirror and alloys doing it - and as you might have noticed shouting at me (as he was) is the way to get me doing the total opposite of what you want :p. So I sat there until he went back like he b.loody should have *but* despite being rather stressed (I do not usually do confrontation) not once did i think about having a fag. Back when I smoked, after something like that I'd stop ASAP and have a fag - or more likely 2. :o

So that's progress!!

  • :D:D:D Love it! I have this fantastic mental image of that whole scenario! :D:D:D

    And, completely apart from giving me a good giggle, you have faced yet another trigger, stared the monster in the face and told him exactly where he can stick it!

    Crack on petal, great to see you've got your mojo back :)

    Lol road rage Gemma :p :o :eek:

    Glad I gave you a laugh hun - it didn't trigger me to want a fag, but it did trigger my defiant teen act *giggles*

    Ooooh and I just remembered!! didn't occur to me 'cos I never smoked in my car but he had his window part open and in this weather there's only one reason for that!! So much for smoking calming you down!!

    And i stopped off on the way for cakes and rolls, picked up a loaf for tonight (all fresh ) and they smell soooooo goood - YAY!!

  • thats great to hear hun

    but you should have gotton your phone out and took a video of him and also took his details and reported him first to the poilce and then posted the said video on facebook or twitter or both

    mind you if he had seen your phone he might well have had second thoughts about being an bum hole :eek:

    i hate bullies especially ones that do something like that

    so proud of you though :D:D

    Oooh I've done that before when I've met muppets, no video 'cos I've only recently got a phone that does it but apparently someone got a nice visit at home 'cos of me :p

    Ended up having a long chat with the traffic policeman when he called back, lol. Wasn't you was it Max? :p

    Aww thanks hun!!

    Yeah I hate bullies too, and my days of caving into them are well over :D

  • Gem that's my girl stand up for yourself. You are strong now and can take on the world. No one puts Gem in the corner.

    Well done on getting thru these difficult times you went in a girl and came out a woman xxx

    Woohooo thanks hun!!

    Am double proud of myself 'cos I don't normally do confrontation but that *and* not wanting a fag just WOW!!

    xxx

  • *tries to picture 39 fag packets*

    *fails*

    I would have bought that number already though, didn't think twice about it either, but by stopping I've now avoided 761 fags :eek::eek:

    Can't picture that number of fag ends either, it's a huge number!! Have still got my ashtray pouch and my ice cream tub full of ends and ash and having a sniff of that really does put me off having a smoke 'cos it's minging. But I am a bit worried by how faggy I must have smelt, I mean ick and i'm a bit vain anyway lol

    And now, I'm going to live 3 days, 1 hour and 35 mins longer!!

  • Oooh I love them Kat!!
