Hope Jillygirl doesn't mind me doing this,thought maybe as it's Sunday you'd all like a lie in. : )

I was woken up by one of my moggies,Misty,this morning,she wanted her cuddle to start the day.It made me think about how harsh and critical we can be of yourselves when we are trying to beat this smoking thing.All too often we criticise ourselves because we desperately need a cig or as in my case 5 months on & I still miss it.So, today be kind to yourselves, think of how far you've got in your journey wether it's 1 day, 1 year or anything in between & give yourself a hug, because we're ALL winners.

Enjoy your Sunday

  • God morning yellowsnowdrop, really miss it myself but we continue to fight the cravings almost four months in now doesn't really feel much easier but it is I am sure, not craving all the time but when it comes boy does it come with a bang. Hope you are feeling much better

  • Good afternoon Ysd, Thanks for opening up, its a nice change for someone else to do it.Saves my 1 brain cell having to work.Anyone can open the daily chat its nice to have a variety of people and their ideas. As for wanting a ciggy I think I have only fancied one about twice in 21 months , then it was more something to do , rather than the smoking itself. Anyway I have learnt the hard way and no way am I losing my one and only lung.

    Off to do my washing now so sees ya later. :) :)

  • Afternoon Everyone :-)

    Lovely to see so much activity on here and everyone at different parts of their stopping smoking journey. The advice and support offered between you all is absolutely fantastic :-)

    Stopping smoking isn't just a case of putting out your last cigarette and never smoking again. As you all know there's a lot of stuff that goes on in between - do I choose to use NRT or go cold turkey? Shall i have a drink or not? Shall i just have the one smoke? Maybe i'll buy 10 and not a pack of 20... It's the psychological part that tends to sway how our journey goes and which turning we make.

    The best thing to do is set your quit date, stick to it, remember the 'not a puff' rule or as Jonathan says NOPE;





    If something does get in the way, readjust your steering and get back on track.

    Everyone is here to help each other out and as many are at different stops within their journey, there's plenty of advice to suit.

    Right, the kettle is on as a cup of tea is needed. I've also had to have an alkaseltzer this morning as I might have had a tad too much pop last night... :-) :D

  • Struggling a bit today but will not give in. I know that it is not a craving as such for nicotine I think maybe it's a bit of boredom, not really keen on Sundays. Still onwards and upwards fellow non smokers.
