Hello everyone! It's been a while;)

It's been a bit of rough few weeks! Lots of downers and stressy things happening that I shall not bore you with! Onwards and upwards as they say!

Soooo during this god awful time I have been majorly 'cravey'!!

Not just fleeting thoughts of 'I want a fag' but really bad long lasting horrible craves that I experienced early on! It sucks, badly, (enter pity party here) today has been a bit more manageable! I have come to realise that smoking was a big thing to me when I was stressed! It was my outlet, that thing I do to make everything ok! But I have continually woke up each morning and promised myself I wouldn't do it, and I'm a stubborn cow so I havent:p

Going with the motions and it's working well! Smoking is not an option! I know I don't want to smoke! So I will stick to my vow and never take another puff of that dirty, stinky little things!

Hope everyone is well! And moving along in their quit journeys nicely!

Awww glad your still around quit buddy ;) we are in it for the long haul so we may as well suck it up :D I had a bad couple of days recently too so maybe it's just the time in our quit xx

Hi Laura, well done for not giving in to cravings. You are over two months now so I hope they get easier for you. I think lots of people used smoking as a crutch for stress, when you look back it wasn't and probably caused more stress than it helped (Airport 3+hours without a fag anyone?).

You sound very positive which is always a good thing. :):)

Fanks guys:)

Party was sorted a while ago tea! thank goodness! We're having a 'frozen theme' :D

Working on those lungs still so I can hit the high note when I creep the kids out with my rendition of 'let it go' :cool:

Today is much better! It's still lingering though! Stalker craves:eek:

not giving in! Just wandering if it's because I'm heading towards ' that time of the quit' lol! Month three is a biggy for me! Never got past it but this time I'm so positive I'll smash it:D I want this too much now:) xxx

Laura, so glad you've managed to hold on in there despite the external stresses. That speals wonders for your committment and dedication so well done you! :D

And nearly two months done and dusted. That's flipping fantastic. :)
