Day 37 - stronger!!

Hiya :)

Well, Day 37!!

I started off a bit stressy this morning - nothing too serious - and with a slight crave so I stopped and thought.

Imagined myself smoking, the taste, the smell, the way it made my mouth feel and how towards the end of my time as a smoker, my chest felt tight and *boom* bye bye crave!! And hell, even as a smoker I got stressed - but, as I ca nremember from last year and as I'm told, as a non-smoker it's a lot better!!

Suppose *weird random thought* I'm like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly - am just in my cocoon at the mo :p

Gemma - will not smoke today!!

  • Hi Gem, so pleased to see you doing so well, i think maybe your brain is finally beginning to reprogram with being a non smoker now.

    You're so right about not being so stressed when you don't smoke, i definitely don't get as stressed as i did as a smoker.

    Love your random thought, can imagine you as a butterfly, very Girly.:)

    Stay strong Gem xx

    Aww thanks hun!!

    I am slowly but surely getting there :D Looking forward to the time where I don't think about smoking at all, but now i feel so much stronger, even than last week :D

    It's fab to hear you're a lot more relaxed too - yet another bonus of quitting, well it's all bonuses really!!

    Oooh and YAY, I want to be a butterfly!! xx

  • And I am sooooooooooo glad to see it!:D:D:D

    Making serious progress here little one, chuffed to little mint balls for you! :cool:

    Aww thanks hun, know it is for everyone - but in my case it's definitely much more of a mental battle than a physical one so I'm really happy to be winning that side :D

  • Checking in

    Gemma I have to admit I had my doubts last wk,but this is a new YOU:)I think you will go all the way now:)

    It's a good lesson for the quitters in early days and wks to see how you struggled midway and nearly gave up but have comeback stronger and full of confidence.

    We will all have bad days..we will..but keep going and things do get better:D
