2 weeks in :)

Well I made it two whole weeks/fortnight/14 days done! I will admit last night I was home alone, just me and the dog an Indian takeaway and a bottle of wine and I really really thought oh I'll have a couple of fags, I'll have silk cut ultra cos it's like smoking fresh air, it won't hurt......... What an idiot, anyway I came to my senses and demolished a family sized bag of revels instead :D

Feeling proud I resisted today, have a great Sunday mon amies xx

Well done Donna, half way to a whole month! :)

You really have to get the NOPE mantra fixed into your brain, I feel a forum chanting session coming on :p

Never feed the habit, smoking is smoking and no matter what tar levels they might have, they still have all the other horrible chemical additives in them.

That said, you bopped your way through and I bet you're revelling in your success (did you see what I did there?) :p

MAGNIFICO! :)

I'm not able to do the NOPE thing, the moment I try to even think about NOPE, I'll light up again, I had to learn how to go around to fool my brain...I can smoke whenever I want, I do whatever I want to...at the end of the day, I am 40 years old and nobody tells me what to do.

But I don't really want to, so I won't smoke just yet...may next week, maybe...just not now.

Congratulations on week 2, stay strong.

That's kind of what I did. I can smoke whenever I like. I can go and get some right now if I want to, but I don't want to because smoking is rubbish, so I don't smoke.

Well done Donna, not had Revels in years (love the toffee ones) I'm a maltesers addict. This is my 3rd weekend I'm 21 days tomorrow and apart from the odd thought have sailed through it, which if you'd said to me 2 weekends ago I would never have believed . It, here's to week 3 x

Ets147, how long are you gone since you stopped? Thanks for your support, Im feeling very lonely with my approach to stop smoking...I've tried the NOPE as well and I can see why it's the right way to go about, But I just cannot do it.

Every day I see myself asking for fags, handing the cash over...I just won't do it today...maybe tomorrow...if I remember...:-D

So that was actually my biggest problem, so I went to the shop first time today since I quit on the 1st of Feb.

I take my lunch to work instead of buying lunch, I don't carry money or cards on me, I decided that if I am not strong enough to stop myself, I must work on it "junkie type". I also started doing the weekly shopping in Lidl because they don't sell cigarettes.

That's horrible Donna, don't give in, you can do this. Knitting to calm down?, camomile tea? Counting to 100, breathing exercices?? I wish I could help...

But I know you will do it :) just focus on something else....
