Preparing to move but irritating nostalgia

Hiya :)

Am here on day 30 and getting a bit of irritating nostalgia.

It's stupid, know it is and won't go back to smoking because of it but part of me is kind of missing it?

Have to say it's getting on my wick pretty badly at the mo but I hope it will bog off soon!!

But, that aside, tomorrow I move into Month 2 which is brilliant :D

Never romanticise

Keep reading your early posts Gem....

How soon we forget that smokedried feeling in the morning

The smell

The expense

The fear:eek:

The standing out in the rain

The painful chest

The cough

The pitiful looks from non smokers.

We forget all that and more....but when we do remember,we wonder what took us so long.

Don't look back Gem look forward,you fulfilled your goal,now it onwards and upwards to our new room tomorrow...

You bring the cakes and Il bring the chocs......and tell the others to move over and make room.....I like party:D:D:D

Oooh I won't go back, not now!!

You're right, there was so much to hate about smoking - and honestly the thought of having a fag now is pretty odd, it's so annoying that my mind has chosen to give em a slideshow of all the things I thought were good about it too. My stupid brain :mad:

Oooh yes I'll stock up on cakes for the party :D :D

Good isn't it :D

How's you hun? xxx

Yep, unfortunately that tends to crop up every once in a while petal, and asserting your logical brain over the lies you made it accept in order to justify your smoking takes some doing but it does get easier and eventually your head will stop trying to reassert your dodgy smoker's programming and will happily accept reasoned logic again.

It's flipping annoying :mad:

Why the hell do i miss something I was totally fed up witha month ago?

Stupid brain!!

But yeah i must have made it make a lot of leaps to accept not only that smoking was fine but that it didn't matter how much I smoked.

*puffs on post it note*

And hey, NEW ROOM COMING UP! Somewhere else to make all pink and sparkly (I dread to think how much redecorating it will take to render your room in Month 1 habitable for someone who isn't girly and sparkly) :rolleyes::D

LOL well I can't help it if some people have no taste and don't like pink sparkly!!

Hi Gemma

I'm feeling the same as you 1 minute I'm great thinking

I'm never going to smoke again then next it's flashbacks of

Me smoking and thinking it was so good!

Wish this stupid thoughts would leave.

5 weeks tomorrow I can't believe it's been this long.

Well done to you hopefully we'll be better in another 5 weeks!!!

Hiya LouLou :)

It's odd isn't it - like a real rollercoaster but it will get better!! Loads of people who are a couple of months down the line from us hardly even think of fags and that's going to be us soon :D

You're doing fab, must have quit the same time as me too!!
