Day 5

All good here, oddly I feel incredibly thirsty ALL the time? Maybe it's the patches? I'm not taking it off though DEFINITELY not! Sleeping so well and getting up no problem for work, normally it's an effort to get out of bed in the mornings :) I can't help feeling it's the calm before the storm but I'll take it and if it goes **** up in a few weeks I will be on here chatting to you lovely lot to get through it :) maybe, just maybe I won't find it hard this time? Here's hoping :D

Having carbonara and Terry's chocolate orange for dinner, boootiful :)

Hope everyone is good today xxx

  • Well done DonnaJ!

    It doesn't have to "feel hard" at all. This last quit of mine wasn't a climb the walls crazy. In fact, it went pretty smoothly. But like you are with your patches, I was the same with my little bottle of the nasal spray. I didn't put any pressure on myself, I just worried about not smoking first. I ditch the nicotine later, when I quit following smokers walking down the street, just to get a whiff of their second hand smoke!

    As you can see from my sig. I took a leisurely 5 months before I worried about backing off the spray. Much to my surprise it was quite easy to get off it. I kept in mind my body was going to go through a change for about 3 days and be prepared to be edgy so I kept to myself that week and I never noticed lol.

    You are doing so well. Keep going, one day at a time. You and I decided we would not smoke this day, and we didn't. We'll worry about tomorrow when we wake up in the morning. ;)

  • What a great day you have had. There is no reason why it cant be easy. Just tell yourself u arent depriving yourself of anything.

    Give us a piece of the Terrys orange I need a reward too x

    I won £25 on the lottery last night, going towards my 2 week treat A pamper x

    ***throws piece of chocolate orange to Deb in Essex*** :D I am liking the 2 week reward, I think I might join you in that x

    Well done DonnaJ!

    Thanks cat so much, I think the nope and one day at a time mantras are working well for me this time, I refuse to go through this again, I HAVE to stick at it and win, i realise now as much as I think I liked smoking, I didn't I was just addicted x
