Thursday already which can only mean it's Friday tomorrow. Another weekend upon us again.
What does this mean for you then?
- Another smokefree weekend under your belt? - This means that you are getting stronger each day and as your body's health is improving, your confidence is growing too
- A step closer to your quit date? Is it Monday? - a common day for new quitters. If you have your quit day approaching, remember the importance of planning towards it. This way you are more likley to stay quit for good
If it's not your first weekend, think about how you managed to get through the past ones. Think about the times you found it more difficult and still got through it, was it as bad as you thought? Think about the coping strategies that you used. What got you through first the morning time, the afternoon and then the evening - equalling a full smokefree day? Again, its really important that you think about it and then plan to remain smokefree.
If you have relapsed, try and put that moment behind you and learn from it. See it as a way of discovering how those sneaky little (or big) cravings work their crafty little way into your life - sometimes quite unexpectedly :-x
Remembering that all those past quit attempts are simply a practice attempt for the real thing
I was listening to the radio earlier and a song came on 'Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive' by Jools Holland and Rumer. You should listen to the words. I was thinking about it when it says 'Don't mess with Mr Inbetween' - I think that this part could relate to the cravings, just let them be... deal with them by welcoming them in, don't try and force them out as they will return. Face up to them and then show them the door. Remembering that each craving you have, and deal with in a positive way, then you are a step closer to staying stopped.
Anywhose, lots of catching up on here to do so shall pop the kettle on if anybody fabcies joining me
ps. word has it that the gremlins have gone although I am still copying and pasting until I feel a tad more confident
