Day 7 :)

Wow, I imagined a day once again that I would come a week and that I have. I been stressing a little about uni,only because I cant seem to focus at all and im worried how long its going to take to get the focus I need back to write at degree level. Im being positive and telling myself it will come back just when I need it too, but I still think oh god. everyone in my class are having mental breakdowns the course is that stressful, and im the only one who decided to quit smoking now lol but to late ive done it now. im ok for reason, maybe im to all over the place because of this withdrawal to even notice how stressful it all is.i dunno.

I feel good though. manic as hell. but good. my next post will be the week 2 forum. hell week. done. and I still haven't pressed my red button yet. :)

The thing is when the nicotine leaves the body, you're left on your own with an explosion of emotions and feelings and not knowing how to handle them

Think you're in a foreign country and you don't understand their habits... It's going to take you well over 1 year to adapt and feel confident. You'll need to learn the language, the habits, the culture.... But it's worth it in the end. It's all about learning and mostly be willing to learn. Welcome to your new life and massive well done!

Nikki don't doubt yourself. You will get to grips with your course and you don't need cigarettes to help you. Have confidence in your own abilities, it's always a stressful time for everyone at the beginning of a new term but you can manage just as well without your cigarettes, even better in fact.

Just stick to your guns and don't be tempted back to your old habit if there are smokers about.

Here's to week 2.:)


Well Done Nikki on getting passed week 1, it is a very tough week, keep strong and post and read on here as much as possible if needed.


Hey Nikki...your post made me think of something John Lennon said:

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life"

Hang in there and think happiness...!
