Day 40 :D

Hiya :D

Well 40 days :eek: sounds a lot, lol

It is definitely getting better all the time, which is fab, and any new quitters who see how I've struggled can definitely feel good about that 'cos if *I* can do it (the girl everyone thought could never quit) *you* can!!

So, just got back from Lidl, where it was rammed even though it was early, their delivery was late so everyone was unpacking, and all the walkoffs were out in force :eek:

Now the old me would have been properly craving a fag at the checkout, and would have sparked up pushing the trolley across the car park :o but now? Not going to lie, I did crave but nothing a chomp on some gum and some muttering didn't fix!!

And last night I had an unplanned but fab evening out with the girls from work, couple of them smoke too and amazingly i craved once - one crave, on a night out, with smokers - flipping brilliant!!

Went off to the loo, had a fake puff on my fake fag, sucked a mini and job done - bye bye crave and OK I'm not exactly bright eyed and bushy tailed :p am feeling loads better than back when I smoked!!

When you get into the swing, it's all positives this quitting lark :D

Here's to a fab, smoke free, weekend!! xxx

  • So the girl who could never quit seems too have cracked it now :D:D:cool:

    This has to be your time, nights out no probs, shopping trips no probs

    and getting stronger by the day!! Gemma's in control and not Nic at last he must

    be sulking in the corner somewhere :D:D xx

    It's amazing :D :D

    Something clicked in my head before i quit, and it made me go from enjoying my fags (which sadly, I did) to actually being angry with myself for smoking, and feeling trapped. Think I owe a lot of that to Kat, for all her gentle persuasion!!

    And something else clicked earlier in the week and snapped me out of the stress and worry about it - so it's looking pretty good now!!

    xx

    Oh my lovely Gemma. I'm loving the positive smoke free you. You should be so proud of how far you've come and how hard you've fought. This is your time. x

    Aww thanks hun!!

    Don't think I ever "got" the mindset quite right before, very close but not quite there, now i do though and it's fab!!

    Know I can do it, so there's nothing holding me back!! xx

  • Gem hello is that u. You sure u havent been taken over by an alien. Your like a different person. Well done loving the New Gem x

    Lol, yes it's me but the better, richer, nicer smelling me!!

    I feel so much better, it's amazing and it's great :D x

  • Well done!!! Go you!!!:D

  • Well done!!! Go you!!!:D

    YAY thanks!!

    Am not going to go back now, no way!!

  • Gemma love

    Repeat to yourself,at least 10 times a day

    "Smoking is NOT an option" :D:D

    You are doing great,you need now to accept that smoking is no longer a choice to make,it is OFF the table.Tell yourself this xx

    Smoking is definitely *not* an option!!

    It's something I used to do, like dressing up as the Little Mermaid or going to school.

    It's odd, it seems a long time since I was a smoker!!

    6 weeks ago today I was smoking myself silly because I was scard, now? Putting a burning stick in my mouth sounds strange!!

  • wow you're an inspiration Gems :D two massive triggers over come, nic doesn't stand a chance :D I'm so pleased that you've arrived on a safe rock in all the turbulent sea that drowns so many :) good on you Gem Gems :D:D

    Aww thanks hun that's lovely :)

    It's just great to have found my groove and to be beating this one day at a time!!

    How's you? xx

  • Still struggling sweets but just getting through it hour by hour :) it seems to heading in the right direction so here's hoping it will lift soon :)

    Aww Ihope it gets easier really soon hun, you deserve it!!

    YAY for going in the right direction :D :D

  • I've downloaded solitaire onto my phone and I'm using it as a crave buster, not getting much done though because of it haha x

    Now that's going to help a lot!!

    I found the -Mania games great last time and this one, like fruit Splash, Candy Blast etc, they're a bit addictive though!! xx

  • I far prefer to be addicted to a game than to be smoking Gems :)

    You and me both!!

    And heck, you can't smoke when you're playing them!! :D :D

  • Am off out for a fab, smoke free afternoon WOOHOO!!

    haha well you could :rolleyes: but I'm not going to :p

    Lol, it's almost impossible, I tried before i was quit :p

    (or am I totally clumsy?)

    Happy 40th day gem x x

    Thanks Karri!! xx
