Day 17 still going

I'm still here and still not smoking, I'm heading to the hospital again, as I refused to be admitted in, this feels like a full time job now, clocking in in the morning and stay the all day, getting a bit sick of it but I suppose I'm lucky because I do get to go home and have the kids around me for the evening. let's start this party now! Have a great day everyone!

  • Well done mmaya, you really are an inspiration, hope today goes well for you in the hospital, will be thinking of you.....

  • Rowens08, Im no inspiration for any one, do you see under my name "serial quitter" - it should say "junkie taking a break" seriously, I brought a pack of cigarettes to the hospital mind saying "just in case"!!!! That's what I've been telling you, I am the perfect example of - what not to do ! If you want to take inspiration from me, take the fact that I will never stop quitting until I get it right. I will get there, I'm hoping it will be this time. So far so good. I'll be out of the hspital in 2 hours, that's it for today, might go down to the office for a bit of work and distract myself a bit.

  • Well done on getting so are an inspiration! It takes some will power to have a packet of cigarettes in your hand and not actually smoke them.

  • Jane I didn't smoke them because I don't want to smoke, took me loads and loads of failed attempts to get to this stage. I don't want to be a smoker, I don't like smoking. I smoke because that's what I've been doing for the last 27 years! I don't know how to behave any other way, but I'm going to have to learn how to behave different because I don't like it anymore. Did you ever drive on auto pilot to the point that you don't actually remember passing through a certain place? We do things because that's all we know to do. It's not easy, but I chose not to smoke, no one told me to do so, so I will do what's the best for me.

  • You have a great attitude! I agree with what you say about doing what we know. Behaviours can become habitual within 3 weeks, starting them is easy (smoking) but breaking them is harder when emotions and chemical addictions are involved.

  • Hey folks, survived today so far, I'm happy there weren't any cravings or thoughts really, very easy day for me today. I hope it will stay this easy from now on...great to see that people around here are all so determined to quit once for all. Great to see the new quitters getting involved as well. Let's make this our last quit and God help us all, this is not an easy job.
