Week 6 !

Heyho,

Hope everyone has had a nice weekend.

I've had a difficult week but i managed stay smoke-free.

There were a couple moments when i was tense and that resulted in wanting to smoke really really bad.

Also there was a friend who apparently doesn't like it that i'm quitting and started to constantly offering cigarettes to my friend (which is also quitting) and myself.

We were drinking alot of beers that night and unfortunately my friend cracked.

It's really weird, some moments i'm really happy that i quit or don't think about smoking at all, but this week i had seriously alot of moments which i felt nervous and thought i just needed to smoke to get this feeling to go away. Alot morre then the last weeks :(.

But i'm still smoke free, i'm hitting the 900h mark tomorrow and the 1000h mark this saturday.

Good luck all!!

  • The point being thought that even though you want to smoke sometimes, you don't want to smoke over times! as a smoker you wanted to smoke 20 times a day (or whatever you smoked). So it might feel like not a lot has changed, but if you really think about it....It really has!! keep up the good work xx

  • Yes, I used to say " I want a cigarette but I don't want to be a smoker "

  • Hey Brien, sorry I only saw ur msg now.

    Week 5,6 and 7 are horrible because you put your guards down a bit as it starts to get easier and then you're hit...like from no where with a powerful craving and a lot of people actually relapse around this time.

    Myself personally, every attempt I had in the past, I failed around this time of the quit.

    The junkie talking really kicks in now, you're tired from 6 weeks counting the days and trying to fight it over and over!

    This is your last test,stick to it and you'll have freedom after.

    Give into the junkie talking and one only becomes 1 pack and before you even notice you'll be back full on.

    Scientifically, between now and 12 weeks, you're left with a much higher amount of neurotransmitters in your brain looking to be fed, feed them and they'll stay happy.

    Starve them and they'll die. By week 12 you should have the same amount of neurotransmitters as a nonsmoker... Which brings you back to normality.

    I do not think abt smoking anymore, I still fantasise about how great it would be, but I know that's junkie talking...so that's actually making me laugh everytime it happens.

    Stay strong buddy! Xxx

    Well done Brien on not caving in, yes you are at the stage where the mental battle is in full swing but you are getting through it, stay strong and on guard - also be happy and proud of yourself that you did not accept that smoke offered to you, well done again!
