Good Morning Everybody
It's Friday!!! Another weekend upon us. How do we feel about it then? Are you excited about another weekend of being smokefree? Or are you feeling apprehensive and concerned that plans to have your favourite tipple may tip the balance of staying smokefree?
As long as you put yourself in control of your choices then this should help you to stay strong. Remembering that you are choosing to stop doing something that you no longer wish to do anymore. If you really want to smoke, then you can... it's not that you can't... You are simply choosing not to.
When we first quit, and are offered a cigarette - we fall into the habit of saying "I can't because I've stopped" Instead of saying "No thanks I don't smoke". The words "I can't" can quite often set up negative feelings without us realising. So.... Remember to stay positive and work on your own positive self-talk - what you say when you talk to yourself
Please use our daily chat to let us know how you are doing with your quit attempt, at whatever stage you are at - Planning, preparing, quitting, staying stopped and even relapsing....
However, if you have any specific questions, then please still post in the questions section, or if you want to blog seperately on your quit story then please do so.
Remember, that any questions that you have may help others wondering the same thing.
Soooo..... chat away!
