Day 30 :D

Hiya!!

Well, I had a fab birthday yesterday - was out in the afternoon and it hit me part way through that i *didn't* want a fag, and that I hadn't thought about smoking for ages!!

I had a gorgeous birthday meal, don't think I'll eat for the rest of the week :p and even though a couple of my friends were diving out to smoke, I only got a slight, um, not crave exactly - that would be too strong - but a bit of a pang I guess?

Still I was patched, and have got Niquitin Minis (thanks for the recommendation guys) which are fab!!

So while before I'd have smoked myself stupid, I got to enjoy the taste of the food, not getting cold and not smelling of eau de Marlboro.

And the other good thing is that despite having more than a couple of drinks, I only felt a bit fuzzy this morning, and no mouth like the bottom of a parrot's cage :D

I owe a big thank you to all you lovely people who posted on my brthday thread yesterday, and to everyone who's supported me especially last week when I felt like giving up.

Hell I sound like an Oscars speech here. :o

I will not smoke today, tomorrow can look after itself!!

  • Yay! Given that was your first outing for the socialising and booze trigger that's flippin' FANTASTIC!!! Great to see you bouncing back so well from that wall you fought your way past just over a week ago - beginners take note, it WILL get tough, but you CAN get past it, we promise!

    Chuffed to bits pickle, and yay for minimal hangover (I truly never realised how much was down to the fags and not the booze - quite an eye opener!:eek:)

    I was a bit nervy, have been avoiding going out and drinking with smokers 'cos it might have been a bit dodgy but nope, no trouble :D

    I remembered from before not having hangovers, it's brilliant (and because smoking dehydrates you) because as a smoker it didn't take much to give me one. :eek:

    And definitely yes - any newbies who are going through a bad patch please stick with it 'cos I'm so much better now than this time a week ago!! Might seem hopeless at the time but it *does* get better, take it from me :D

  • Hey Gemma,

    Glad you had a lovely birthday :D

    So far today I've had 1 "oh wow I need a fag" moment but that's all :D

    Fantastic Gemma!

    So happy you got a great 30th birthday.

    All those situation where we use to smoke is scary as far as I am concerned: you never know when the little devil will hit.

    Have a good 30th and 1 day, 2,3.....oh lucky you, you have decades to reach my 51.

  • I knew you'd be fine! After last week I honestly don't think there'll be any holding you back Gemma. You're going a cruising all the way to your room next door to Kat in the penthouse.

    Pssst by the way, don't say anything but Kat specifically asked for you to be next door to her because that wonderful lady just luuuuurves the spice girls but simply daren't admit it :D:D

    Seriously, well done Gemma, I'm so proud of you for getting through. I bet you feel so much stronger now don't you?
