How long? I HAVE had a couple of good day's in 14

It's as if I get punished by my brain after having respite from the mental war for a while! I am sooo tired of feeling this self pity... But I can't seem to see the wood for the trees.... I try and snap out of it.. Today I took my son to the river where we found a frizby... Yesterday I took him to an outdoor pool and went in myself!! One thing not smoking is good for is making me do stuff to try and avoid the darkness lurking in corners to swamp me again!! I try and remember the feeling of "feeling good about being a non smoker" I had the other day and said "remember this!!" But it's soooooo hard when the misery bug creeps in :-( god I pray for respite tomorrow...

I guess two good days in a week is a beacon of hope ... Sorry for rant.., just needed to SCREAM in text form... And in my head!!!!

  • Hiya jaglan, now I want to scream also coz I just lost the reply I sent ya😩

    You're doing terrific but just doesn't feel like it at the moment. There will be light at the end of the tunnel and you will feel good about being a non smoker. The happy chemicals are taking their time to reach you but they will. Hang in there and it really will all be worth it. Never apologize for a rant coz that's normal and much better to get it out of your system. Be very proud of your achievement coz I'm proud of you. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and keep going for better days ahead☺️X

  • Hi Jaglan,

    There is no right or wrong way to get through the early days of quitting. If you need to scream - Do it - Get a pillow and punch the stuffing out of it :D :D You do what ever you have to to get you through.

    You have come this far, and truly, you are doing fantastically :) :) It wont be long and you need to go back and read some of your posts and just see for yourself just how far you have come :) :)

    We are all so very proud of you for staying so strong...You just keep on letting ole Mr Nic know who is is the boss and that he wont win over you :) :) ..

    Keep up the awesome quit you have going :) :)
