I am feeling rubbish

I know that isn't exactly a medical condition....but I am full of self pity this evening - I am almost 100% negative......hoping the 10% wins through

In my head it goes like this at the mo:

"So you've stopped smoking - that's great....now you might live long enough to end up in some random hell hole whilst your home is sold from under your feet and as an added bonus you get to be taken to the loo by someone you never met who would rather be doing anything else BUT that! - and that's if they care enough to not leave you sitting there helpless in your own **** (edited for politeness)"

Yep - that's the demons kicking in BIG TIME!

    Day 3....I didn't realise, that explains ALOT.. Notoriously a bugger that one! But you have nearly made it and day 4 will be better I'm sure xx

  • You have just made me feel instantly better...I am in that same pity hole tonight..really really down. I was literally, and I'm not joking..going to go and roll a cigarette when I read your post and realised that it is the nicotine monster doing this. I would have smoked if I hadn't realised there is someone else in the same boat as me. Thank you. I'm going to get an early night and try some more tomorrow, I really hope you do too xxxx

  • It is past 9.30 now Mina, so you made another day. Take it one hour at a time, and that grows into 1 day eventually.

    You have the strength Mina, you had it before and it is still there.

    It can be so difficult to even drag a tiny bit of positive feeling out at times, but you will do it. We're all rooting for you, you know that.

    Sending you lots of strength and good thoughts. bb x

  • The first few days are hard Mina, but you are posting here and getting the support you need :D Day 4 is just around the corner, hugs :)

    I absolutely have to keep on track or I'm going to lose sight of you, as you gallop of into the distance, thank you for the support, and for the trail-blazing, I know it can't be easy for you either

    I am absolutely in sight, come later this year those few days wont mean a thing :). We are all going to do this TOGETHER x

  • Mina, this is just a temporary hole that you are in. The road to smokefreeness is dotted with these holes, just like a pot-holed road! Quite a lot of people have difficulty around this time....for me it was Day 4.

    Do something nice for yourself, RIGHT NOW. You are hurting at the moment and you need to be nice to yourself......have a nice relaxing bath or a cup of tea or some chocolate ....anything that is nice! Pamper yourself, be kind to yourself. It will pass. Honestly. :)

  • Dear Mina,

    You're such an integral part of this forum and I hate to see you so down and despondent. There seem to be a few others in the same boat at the moment from reading this morning's posts. Perhaps there's something in the ether at the moment (we need your telescope to check :))

    I really hope you're feeling more positive this morning. We are all in this together regardless of the length of our respective quits. I would go so far as to say that I don't think any of the regular posters on the forum at the moment will fail. We're all going to the Penthouse including you and that's final. :)

  • Hiya Mina, I'm sorry for not posting before!!

    Hope you're feeling better today, it is horrible how stuff gets you down, and it does seem to pile up when you're quitting.

    Have a big (((hug)))

  • Hi,Mina......how are you today Hun?

    A new day brings a new perspective:). Hopefully :)

    Onwards and upwards"
