OMG! Why now?

Hi all,

I have been "lurking" on the fringes over the last couple of months and reading the posts for you guys whilst I have worked my way through my quit attempt. Have managed nearly 2 months and for some reason have been more (or less) fine.....this last week? I could kill someone for a smoke.....seriously, I could!

I know this is the "blah's" setting in, but seriously?

No need to reply, just needed to rant somewhere....before there actually is a murder....

Iain

I've been smoke free for 1 month and 29 days (www.smokefreeapp.com)

Yep, been there done that, those days are an absolute b*tch! Lol

All I can say is do whatever you need to do to vent. I found running good, even if just a few good sprints at full pelt, gets rid of the rage lol.

Remember it took you loads of time and effort to get to this stage, it's definitely working if you feel like this and you wouldn't want to start from scratch!

Good luck 😊

Huge welcome Iain and congratulations on over 2 months smoke free. Well done! Nearly there with the final stages of the brain re-wiring so just hang in there.

Will you let me know your quit date and your birthday when you get a chance.

PS No, murder would not be that bad if you didn't smoke!! :D

I don't think you should be advocating murder Roisin....manslaughter maybe. 🙂

Ian...Yup it is the last attack of your addiction...I called it the wrath of the nicodemon because he knows he is losing you....(Like Roisen "the final stages of rewiring")...

Stay strong and do not defend but attack.....!!!!

It's great to have somewhere to come and have a rant especially when most of us have experienced the same thing. Good going 2 months free

Congratulations on almost 2 months quit. Totally get your murderous urges ... I found I had a struggle each time I got to a quit milestone .. all the way up to 12 months. Now I barely notice the milestone so that's good. Keep on ranting to get through it .. it's all good!

Hey Iain, have the murderous thoughts subsided somewhat yet? Just got through a very tough few hours there...

I moved on fairly quickly - dwelling was never going to end well! You'll be fine, the thoughts go away as quickly as they come (which is massively inconvenient as you don't know when to "be prepared") and then it's all bunny rabbits and bluebirds again!
