hi all, just me checking in with my weekly update.
The past couple of days have been very easy - weirdly easy, almost like a calm before the storm. I assume my bad days will become a bit fewer and further between which is good. I am finding throughout the day I have forgot about cigarettes. feels good. I do find the psychological aspect hard. For example, i am having to deal with stress cold turkey. any kind of stress etc i would have had a cig to "calm me down." it was my shield and now i am having to find a new kind of stress reliever which is just riding it out until my nerves settle. On Saturday night i was out and had an insane amount of alcohol, beer, wine, prosecco, vodka, whisky, you name it i drank it and even at my worst (or best lol) i still didn't have a cigarette...it is odd though.
I say it in every post but this group has been the deal breaker for me. without your help and advice i cant honestly say i would still be off them. sharing my experiences with people who have been there and who are currently there has helped me so much especially for the reassurance that what i am expecting is normal. feel good to not be going through this alone.
I am going to Greece here on Tuesday and i am hoping it all goes well but i am so confident. ive never been unconfident and since i have quit ive never wanted a cigarette...weird. You deffo reach that point in your life where you have to be in the place and ready to quit. I always loved it and gave up for the wrong reasons. Bottom line is, i don't want to die any earlier than i have too. i have just been blessed with a niece, they stopped selling tens, they upped the price, my uncle died of smoking related illnesses, i noticed my fitness decrease, i am only 28 and thought i had way too many wrinkles then necessary, i am in a fairly new relationship, i have just moved house. so many different factors which contributed me to quitting.
I am aware i have talked on here! lol
How is everyone else getting on?
