Hurrah day 5

I made it!

Days 3 and 4 were bleurgh! Yuk, never doing that again:D

So onto day 5, I'm feeling ok, getting over the false pretence that I thought this would be easy given that I was only back on the smokes for a week, lesson learned.... Just one will have the same effect on me as 20 or 100, it will suck me back in and grab a hold of me hoping for forever! Again it's not happening! :p the urge to smoke is strong today! Than any other day but I feel more able to cope with them! I can feel the little monster trying to weaken me but it will not win! I want this too much!

I have had a little notebook with me this week to jot down my craves. They are noticeable less, but more severe today! I'm a bit confused between the difference in physical withdrawal as opposed to those craves that surface when I'm battling with my mind to not smoke? More reading to keep me busy tonight!

My quit is all mines ( insert lord of the rings graphics here) and I feel different about it? it's more important to me than ever, I feel strong, definitely stubborn and far too excited about my freedom to give it up! This WILL be the one that takes me to the penthouse!!! Sweetie of choice today is strawberry laces courtesy of my 7 year old who has noticed my sudden love of haribo star mix!

Hope everyone had a lovely peaceful smoke free day! Xx

  • aniseed and licorce boiled sweets are pretty good for cravings but them in them selfs are quiet addictive

    I not had morning cuppa since quiting but do have half lemon squeezed ginger hotwater and honey refreshing cleans your system I don't associate it with a smoke even though I am over the cravings I still cant seem to face a cup of tea

  • Little bits of fruity sweets plus a good swish of cold water is helping me ten fold. Weight gain has always been an issue for me particularly during my previous quits. And often because I was so fed up gaining weight I'm ashamed to admit it would cause me to return to smoking. This time I'm different. Whatever will be will be. I'll have gloriously healthy pink lungs to help me run it all off as part of the new me:D .something I've always wanted to do but never dared because of my smoking and awful wheezing from my unhealthy lungs! Baby steps! Smoking first then general lifestyle... That's the plan anyway lol! Xx
