Daily Chat: Friday 8th February 2013

Good morning everyone, last working day of the week then the weekend is here!

Big well done to Jan yesterday to finally make that leap and take the first step to a smoke-free life. :)

Hope today is easier for you all today - I don't think there's going to be too much wind about today - I can't speak for the Orkneys though! :o :)

  • Goo Morning Andi and everyone,

    Your picture is soooooo cute today Andi, I love it :) :)

    We've no wind here today thankfully, I might manage a walk later now :) Hubby is off on holiday now so it will be a fight for the computer :D :D I might go buy some paint for the living room, that will keep him out of trouble, and away from the computer :D :D

    I'm away to have breakfast then go collect my prescription, see you later :) xx

  • Good morning all :)

    Thank you Andi , have to admit it was harder this morning getting up and not having one..i was racing around like a hare to find my ecig lol ..I cant quite fugure out what it is in cigs that makes us want one even when we know we really dont.

    Anyway I have a patch on today ,my trusty ecig for BIG craves, and we'll see how it goes.

    Hope everyone is up for a nice sunny happy friday ,well its sunny here in gosport almost spring :)

    Im off to sand and fill kitchen walls..coffee break at 10:30 :)

    Jan

  • ahh coffee break..:)

  • Good day all and HAPPY FRIDAY :)

    Its not too bad a day out there today, :) shame we're headed to the town soon :( got plenty of washing to do but it will wait I suppose.

    Had some rewlly wierd dreams last night again, dreamt Id bought 10 fags and Id smoked one, I woke up with the taste of fags in my mouth and feeling sick and dizzy!

    Keep it up Jan, your doing fine, it will get easier if you stick with it.

    A lot of people have been speaking about Alan Carrs book about stopping smoking, have you tried that?

    I havent but they say its good.

    I wonder how jilly is getting on and Mad.........Emjay doesnt seem to be around much now either, anybody know where they all are?

  • Hi sarah..I have read it in the past and yes it can help,I have another very good book that has helped as well ..but at the end of the day it comes down to me to make the choice and at the present I am choosing not to smoke ;)

    Yes I had a message from Mad yesterday which was nice and I do hope Jilly is doing ok.

    When Im ironing I'll think od you washing lol..im playing with plaster at the mo :(

  • Thats kinds what I think too Jan... Im using champix rablets but you do need willpower with them too, people told me they had used them and they stopped and they didnt get cravings, maybe it did work like that for them but it doesnt seem to be working like that for me or Sin.

    Awww glad Mad is still around

    What you doing with plaster?

    Well better go get ready for going to town, wont be home till tea time :(

  • Good Morning Everybody and Happy Friday :D

    I'm right here Sarah, always about behind the scenes somewhere and popping in for the odd cup of tea here and there. Always, on your shoulder for support as and when needed though ;-) You're right in what you say about still needing willpower, no matter what you use. Nicotine is a very addictive drug and as you have found affects you both physically and psychologically. Whatever type of therapy you use will only help take the edge off any cravings, there is no wonder drug although the therapy that you put the most faith into is the one that is likely to work the best for you. Stopping smoking does take some amount of effort but those who get there say that it is worth it :-)

    Jan, sounds like you are keeping busy :-) Let me if you want me to add you onto our Wall of Winners :D

    Love the little pooch picture Andi :D

    Sue, let us know when you are back and I'll get the kettle on :D

    I'm just going to pop a little update up about our Jillygirl

    I hope everyone is having a nice day so fay :D

  • Hi everyone,

    Just back and it's lovely out there, like a spring day, better make the most of it we get snow again on Sunday :o

    Well done Jan for taking that first step to not smoking, it will get easier as time passes, keep up the good work, you can do this :) Hope you get your kitchen done soon :)

    I used to have these dreams as well Sarah except i was always caught by Emjay, she must have been sitting on my shoulder :D :D have a good day in town :)

    I've got the kettle on if you want a cuppa Emjay :) thank you for updating us on Jillygirl, i was wondering how she was doing, hopefully everything is going great for her :) have a good day Emjay :)

  • :D :D sorry John i'm my phone just now, you'll have to wait till later, unless someone else gives you one.

    Hope you have a good day :)

  • Hi All Well I want to tell you all that I resisted going to the shops and buying tobacco this afternoon after having quite a stressful day. Did a seven day work week this week and I am so tired and quite stressed. The one thing that stopped me was I have come this far and no way am I giving in to stress. I am so proud of myself :):

  • Well done you,

    Hope everyone has a good Friday night,

    Had a ok time in town (no fighting before, during or after and no fags bought or smoked!)

    Itmwas a bit of a waste to go in early really coz we didnt manage to change a/c's at the bank, apparently you have to make appointments grrrrr, the frigging bank manager was there too, thankfully she just gonna let me sort Stewarts a/c's out without him being there, just have to take the forms home for him to sign ;) )

    The travel agents are gonna send us options of holidays and prices, the kids are getting excited, will have to get Stew's spending in check now ;)

    So on a whole its been a ok day, really tired now and looking forward to bedtime
