  • thats great Sharon. A bit of retail therapy is a good for the soul, even though it sure is hectic at the moment with the lead up to Christmas.

    you are doing doing brilliantly with your quit :) :) ..Keep up the great work

  • Thanks glolin, must admit I only went to one shop in town, I'm the same hate all the Xmas chaos lol, I was looking at people outside shops having a fag and said to my daughter how I thought it would make me crave one but it doesn't, not sure if that will come at a later stage or whether it's different because my mind is made up I'm not gonna smoke again, do you think after I wean off the nicotine patches it will become harder for me or have I gone thru the worst? X

  • I am not really sure sharon as I quit cold turkey, In my opinion, if you have your head in the right place you have gone through the worst part. When i see others smoking, i actually feel sorry for them..once i made the decision to quit, not once have i been tempted to have one..I do still get cravings from time to time..but i know that i will not have one..I so love he NOPE...Not One Puff Ever...and that is all i need to keep myself smoke free. I wondered how i would cope in stressful situations. but after the past 2 days, i know that i am fine with that too.

  • It will be hard when you first drop down to the next stage patch, but it then gets easier :) especially if you stay in that frame of mind, '' I'm not gonna smoke ever again '' :) :)

    I think you've got through the worst now :)

  • Thank you Monky and briarwood, had some bad news today my dog is going to have to be put to sleep next Friday at 3pm, unfortunately I had to book this today as I have been putting it off for 3 weeks now and hes showing signs of being in pain now, he is a very large English bulmastiff and is now 12, he has been my loyal and loving best friend and I'm going to devestated to lose him, I was supposed to take him tomorrow at 3 but I just want one more week with him, really dreading this time x

  • Ah Sharon, that's very sad about your dog :(

  • So sorry to hear your sad news Sharon, we love our pets so much that it's very difficult to say goodbye :(

    You have given him a wonderful life and you'll have lots of happy memories of your time together :)

    Thinking of you :) x

  • Hey Sharon 3 weeks quit....... whoohoo hun :)

    Glad you got yourself a little treat today :)

    Well I quit on patches and I just made sure that I had nicotine gum handy - just in case - for when I reduced the nic patches :O

    I only used the patches for 8 weeks and hated the taste of the gum so have been nic free for 6 months.... :) Do I still feel like a cigarette??? Hell yes but these good people on here keep me slightly sane, Mr nic will pop his ugly, smelly head up at some point but you just need to bop him on the head, very hard so that he struggles to get back up :O :P :D

    Keep that great quit going :)

  • Hi all :-)

    Long time no see :-)

    Sharon I've had quite a stressful time lately, and I really thought I would be back smoking, I really really did but know what I've never even thought about smoking at all :-)

    You've done really well so far, my hubby still smokes and I try to encourage him to stop but I don't think he ever will :-(

    So sorry to hear about your dog


  • Hi Shanti, how are you doing hun? I think you have done fantastically well to stay smoke free hun, maybe your hubby will quit once he gets his head around it :)


  • Hi Droopy, not too bad. Funeral tomorrow, we held it back for family to come from overseas. Seems so long ago now :-(

    Just catches me unaware at times, I think I'll go nip in to see her but she's not there.

    Things will get better and I'm really surprised I never smoked. My other sisters went out and had a smoke when it happened but it never crossed mind. If I get through tomorrow I'll be fine and will be able to get through anything :-)


  • Oh Shanti hun, I will be thinking of you all tomorrow. You all have wonderful support around you, its gonna be hard but I know you have some great memories of your beautiful, brave sister :)

    Well you know where we are if you need us :) -x-

  • Thanks Droopy

    Will have a proper catch up soon


  • Hi ya Shan, I am soo proud of you for staying quit through this very hard time :) :)

    My heart is with you and your family and am sending you loads a warm, comforting, lean on my shoulder, stay away mr nic huggs to help you today :) :)

    Take care now Shan :) xx
