Day 14 - not as positive

:confused: I know this is a huge milestone but woke up this morning for the first time since the quit not as positive, think it was because I remembered dreaming about caving in after the bad day at work I had yesterday, anyway bring on the next 2 weeks, alot of strength needed and I am prepared hopefully. Off up for a shower before work, alot of deep breathing and will be sorted for the day

  • Good morning darling! I found the days 10-20 much harder to go by, because you don't get half as many cravings but they are disguised, it's when your mind starts playing tricks to get you to have that one, just one won't hurt! You can do this, you know you can, stay positive and don't entertain any thoughts. Hang in there, day 21 is around the corner!!! have a great day xx

  • ...hang in there today, you'll be in the room 3 with me tomorrow, we'll have a party, I'll get things ready ;)

  • Thanks mmaya, finding it very hard to focus this morning at work, did not expect this at the end of week 2, but reading the posts here, the real battle starts now, I know it will get easier, need to keep strong and battle on!

  • I think you are almost right, the battle is won, you are not smoking for 2 weeks now, but the enemy is different now, it's no longer the niko in your face, he is getting smarter, he will play games in your mind. The secret is to not allow it to get into your mind, just move on and go distract yourself, do not start listening to the junkie talking in your mind, it's a trap, you'll be gone after. I know you can do it because you have shown enough determination all through the last 2 weeks. Just stick with it for another 10 days, you will thank yourself afterwords xx stay strong.

  • I'll be around the forum today, pm me if you need to, you'll be fine, promise.

  • Thanks mmaya

  • Well done for getting so far!

  • I'm jealous of you. ..well done so far.

  • Rowens... Yes 2 weeks or 14 days is the time where your brain...at this stage starved of happy chemicals start to play his winning hand.

    Remember a person needs to be happy and we are wired to be happy and thought a cigarette is the only thing that can make us happy...That is why we smoked...

    Now our brain tells us just that one puff will make us happy again and that is so false and the same false euphoria we had when we smoked....Stay strong.... This is where I adopted my logo...Don't Defend.... Attack

    Thanks Hercu, I have printed off one of your motivators in big bold orange print about the "Week 3 and Week 4 discovery of my weaknesses", one for home taped to my laptop desk and one taped to my PC at work, don't give a shite who sees it or think of it as long as it gets me through the next 2 weeks. I will keep reading it, so motivational.....

  • Thank you so much Rowans....Now you inspires me !!!

  • Now, that's the spirit! You go girl! Great to see the energy going up again ;)

  • Thanks mmaya, how did get on in the hospital today?

  • I don't know yet, they've repeated the ct scans, and took bloods again, I tried to get the radiologist to say something but she just keep saying my consultant will talk to me. I have to be there tomorrow morning at 8 for an appointment with the consultant and I hope I'll know something then.

  • Please god it will be positive for you, best of luck, try and get some rest after time with your kids....chat to you tomorrow in Week 3!!!
