Mind Games

My head is playing those mind games with a vengeance now: trying to tell me that one won't hurt, that I could control it, why give up something you enjoyed. These tricks are way worse that the cravings, which are manageable. Approaching week 3, I realise I am still very vulnerable.

Anyway, clinic yesterday had normal CO reading of 3ppm as expected. CO detectors at work and home show nothing so I'm putting the unusual high reading last time down to an aberration.

  • Yes Clod I know what you are saying.

    I'm so positive about the quit sometimes and then an hour later I want to buy some. It does my head in.

    Keep going :D

    I'm gonna reprogram my brain and tell it every little thing is 10x better without. Just have to find the right scart lead....

  • Hy clod.

    I love cream buns

    I love chocolate.

    I loved smoking ( at the time)

    I love crisps

    I love any imaginable food that is bad for me,

    I love Mackie de,s

    But if I continue with them all I will be DEAD and that's not a good vibe.:p

    I am missing all these things, my heads in turmoil, it's telling me tho have them and its ok.

    But in reality it's not ok and it's doing my head in to day.

    Any way got hot date with my ironing yippe:) but at least it will pass some time untill tomorrow, when I start the battle again

  • yeah week 3 is when you have to dig in a bit. I remember losing a quit because I decided I'd quit smoking successfully so it was Ok to have one as I only wanted ONE. How mad is that logic!

    There is no such thing as one cigarette or being in control, we're addicts.

    Just keep focussing on the fact that you're making the right choice and a happy smoke free future will be yours. The best prize in the world and you don't even have to buy a lottery ticket. You're a guarenteed winner as long as you say NOPE.:D

    Hope the craves have eased off for the time being at least. Hold on in there and if you have to maul the curtains or eat the furniture you go ahead. :)
