Day 27 struggling a bit

Today has been rough. I've had 2 days of relatively low cravings. The odd 'smack me round the head' one but on the whole, it's been good. Today however, has been a mare. It's been constant, all day. It's tiring, it's annoying.

I am not going to smoke, I know that in my heart but I sometimes feel like it's just wearing me down..gggrr.

On a positive note, tomorrow is my day 28 and the next day my 1st calender month. When I first started I promised myself if i got to a month I would make an appointment to go to the hygienist to get rid of those horrible tobacco Marks we all get on our teeth. It seemed like a million days away and completely unachievable...but here I am. Slowly but surely, with the upmost determination, pig headed ness and a massive amount of support from you I have made it here. I will be making that appointment on Monday. Happy smoke free weekend you lovely people x

  • It is manky, but well done for pushing through it!!

    Really sorry you're having a struggle hun, but it will get better - and how good will it be to have lovely non-smoker's teeth!!

  • Very well done Val. Be proud of what you have achieved. :)

    No one on here will tell you giving up is a piece of p**s (as my late hubby used to say!) It is difficult and takes determination and strength and support. :)

    You are doing brilliantly, what a wonder - 1 whole month :D And when you go to the dentist, you can say you are a Non Smoker :D:D:D

    Keep it up. :):) bb x

  • Hi my lovely, it's such a terror isn't it. Many many congrats:):)

    Your doing fab, just some times it's hard, keep pushing on my lovely. I,m following you.

  • yay good for you! the bad moods slowly but surely do fade, when i think back to myself in January and early Feb i was in some of the worst moods i have ever been in but once i came out the other side i have felt SO much better. everyday is different but as long as they are smokefree then they are good days for us quitters!

    one of my best moments was telling the dentist i didn't smoke anymore and surprisingly my cleaning wasn't as bad as it used to be when i did smoke :)

  • Thank you guys xx

  • Valsy you are doing so well:)

    Everyday you say NO to craves is another day completed and they weaken and weaken.Listen to the long term quitters they have all felt what we are feeling and they all say the same.........it will get better if you keep saying no.never,not one puff:)...and we have to believe them:)

  • Really good to see you have almost made it to a month Val, it's tough when we get the odd cravey day but the key is head down and charge through it, tomorrow's always a new day, we have to try and not give the craves head space, you are doing brilliantly :) xxx
