Day 51 *fingers in my ears*

Hiya :)

Might be my odd definitions time :p but well today I've not had that many what I call craves YAY but I have faced the wants.

I mean sort of pangs, think it's partly because it's sunny and I used to like going out in the sunshine for a smoke, so it's still facing them down, (although a coffee in the sun is nicer, doesn't stink and won't kill me) and because Nic has worked out brute force isn't working so he's trying something else - and if I'd let it, that would play on my mind.

But I'm not, so it isn't having anything like the effect it would if I allowed it to take root.

OK Nic, I used to smoke and for a lot of that time yes, I enjoyed it but those days are long, long gone now and I'm zapping you by remembering how miserable smoking made me by the end!! So no, I won't have "just one" in the sunshine. Bog off, there's a love!!

  • That is exactly the right way to go Gemma you are stronger than that now.

    How dare he even try such a sly move, keep being positive and he's got no change :D:D:cool: xx

    Oooh he's evil but I'm not falling for it, oh no not this time!!

    He's just like a dodgy ex though - always tryign to worm his way back into my life :eek:

    Like Sophie said, a stalker!! xx

    WELL DONE :)

    I'm shouting as your fingers are in your ears :D

    LOL thanks Karri!! *just about heard* :p

  • Well, I am totally jalous: you have sun.

    It is starting snowing here, a snowstorm and we expect about 8inches to a foot of snow.

    So you have finger over your ear, I have my finger over my eyes in denial: I don't want to see more snow.

    Hélène

    Oooh it's rare here believe me!! We've had nothing but grey, gloomyness, wind and rain for months :eek: or it feels like it anyway!!

    Am a bit jealous of you getting snow 'cos it looks pretty but know it's a proper pain when you've got things to be doing!!

    *Passes over an eye mask* :p

  • Oh gema-Lou, it's like old boy friends, they look and smell great at first , and then, later down the line, you see them naked, and you just have to get rid, nasty.

    So great to see a lovely post well done

    Aww thanks hun :)

    Yes, it's exactly like that!! And you're so taken up with how exciting they are but then the shine comes off!!

  • Nic has a very tenuous grip on you now Gemma :D and it's getting weaker all the time so keep pushing on Missy :D xx

    He does now, and it's fab!!

    I had a trigger earlier, and did get quite a pang *not* a crave, 'cos it wasn't nearly that strong but I thought about why I'd quit, and it got lots weaker.

    Can remember not all that long before I quit I smoked a couple of fags and got into the car, had my hair down so sprayed it with perfume and flicked it to see if it smelled. It was *minging* and I really raged at myself 'cos I'm too vain for that. The feeling of being trapped was horrible :(

    OK at the mo I might get the odd pang for a smoke, but I have gained so much more self confidence, and I'm a lot happier!!

  • As Mr Punch used to say, "That's the way to do it!":D:D:D

    Just don't let him talk hon, don't let him breathe a single smelly word, he's had his say for far too long, now it's YOUR turn to call the shots!:cool:

    Ooooh that's the plan hun!!

    He can't make me want to smoke if I don't listen to him :D

  • Fresh as a daisy Gemma 51. Stinky Nic 0. Now that's what I call a result! :D

    There's a nice solidity to this quit, Gemma.......you are winning the battles both big and small and it's lovely to see! :)

  • Don't tell anyone Gem :) but I decided NOT to buy the last box of patches........

    (I mean, 13 quid for something *that* small? I used to buy acid tabs larger than stage 3's...and for less dough!)

    So I'm now FREE from nicotine. I have felt literally NO difference. I guess that's abnormal?!

    If you need a hand, gimme a shout. Else, just carry on being strong honey. You're inspiring a whole new generation.

    PS yes...I know this is public.

    Really glad you've got off the NRT altogether - it's brilliant :D :D

    Um, I guess because they're so tiny (lol and naughty :p) they don't actually do much? Whatever works though is great!!

    Am keeping on the step 1's for a bit, simply because I've been rather shaky :eek: and I want to make sure my head's got properly settled into being a non-smoker before I drop down - this is going to be my last quit ever, so I'm nurturing it :D

    Oooh and i pay £7 for mine :p

    Awwww and thanks :D xx

    Hey Gemma :)

    Well done you. You sound so determined. It is tough in the sunshine, it was a sunny pub garden that did for my last quit. I think you are taking the best course, realize the 'pangs' for what they are and move on. In my opinion being able to rationalize these feelings is a sure sign of a permanent quit.

    Keep on going :)

    YAY thanks Jim!!

    I am determined, the smoking bit of my life is over, and it has to stay that way.

    The pangs are a pain, because the demon knows exactly which buttons to push to make me start wanting a fag - but that will only work if I let him :D

    Have to be honest, I did fancy a fag a couple of times yesterday but when I actually thought about smoking and what it really is it's a lot easier to bat away :D

    We're both doing fab :D
