  • Happy Saturday all.

    I'm facing a massive test right now. I'm early meeting the family so I'm sat outside the science centre. Normally when I'm sat outside alone i would smoke myself silly. It's an anxiety thing. Instead it's lots of deep breaths and mindfulness techniques. Would rather have a smoke though :/

  • Aup Idontsmoke :)

    Its lovely to see you on the daily chat and helping a fellow quitter :) thats what this lovely sites all about, helping each other to quit them pesky cigs :o :)

    How are you doing today ?

    Nice one, Pete :)

  • Hi Ellie :) you stay strong now eh, cos you know you can do it :)

    I suspect your with your family now and are a busy little bee :) like you say, you take a few deep breaths now and again if you need to, cos they dooooooo help :)

    Hey, wish your Dad a happy birthday from me eh :) hmmmm, its only 5 days before my birthday, hint flippin hint :| ;) Enjoy the rest of your day gal, speak soon :)

  • It's only 4 days before my birthday Pete hint hint haha :-)

    Don't know what came over me about an hour ago but for the first time since i stopped i was almost gonna go to shop to buy fags. So glad i didn't and i feel back to normal again thankfully!

  • Aup Jmc :) sooooo, your 21 on the 5th then :) I'm 22 on the 6th, cos am a bit older than you eh :o :D :D

    Yeah, I know what you mean about them flippin urges to go buy some fags, but there's one thing to look forwards to, they get less frequent and easier to deal with, the longer you stay quit :) :)

    Stay focused and positive on your quit, keep reminding yourself WHY you want to quit and look forwards to all that extra cash you will have :) :)

  • Haha yeah the big 21 Pete i can't wait :-) Yeah been taking your advice on board and keep telling myself why i want to quit. I've been lazy the last 2 days and not really been making proper dinner during the day. I've just really been snacking. Could it be hunger that I'm mistaking for cravings?

  • Hey, Jmc, sorry I missed you pal :(

    Yeah, you've got it in one, cos I think most of us get a sort of empty feeling inside :o and we try to fill it with snacks !! which does help, I tell you :)

    Maybe if your snacking on sweet things, then thats why you dont feel like a main meal !

    Try snacking on fruit or veg, like diced raw carrot :) or nuts, although they are very fattening, they are jamm packed with protein and nutrition :)

    Try drinking a glass of water when you get this empty feeling, cos that helps to overcome the hunger pains :)

    You be proud of yourself and hold your head up high :) cos I know how hard it is to quit, stay focused and positive eh, cos I know, your going to get there :) :)

  • Aup Jillygirl :)

    I hope you and hubby are of the best health :) and done all your choirs for today, so you can put your feet up now and chilax abit eh :) :)
