Yahoo - double digits. Determined to have a better day than yesterday. Feeling good this morning. Had a restless night though
Have a good day everyone
Day 14 smoke free and 3 days with no patch YAY!
Yay im so proud of myself, DAY 14. Made it this far and decided to stop using the patchs 3 days ago :)
I must admit that I have been pigging out more since quitting but i dont mind that much, Maybe ill finally grow that bum i have always wanted LOL!
And im a Tad more psycho and snappy , But hey.. i was already Semi psycho before quitting anyway hahaha, I just tell everyone when im having a bad day or cravings so They normaly understand and just laugh when im having a 'moment' ..
Just watched Campbell Live, I wont get too indepth with this topic don't want to cause any issues, but the current prices of tobacco would buy a heap of good food week in week out, NOT saying all struggling parents are smokers drinkers or gamblers, but if some parents did prioritize their budgets and made certain sacrafices for their children I would like to think that hungry children going to School wouldn't be such wide spread.
New House :)
Wahoo .. I got the house and can move in on the 19th Sept. Its lovely and I can even have chooks. It sits on a hill and has panoramic rural views and so much room .. I will not have enough furniture to fill it. I'm so excited! Six months of town living was enough for me :)

First time trying to Quit
Been Smoking since 1988 when I was 18yrs, it just happened at the new job when smokers were given smoke breaks every hour that made me start. Have never tried to stop.
But now the price is so high and it just came to me yesterday that I need to change. Today I bought new packet and only had 5 so far, was tempted to smoke more nut forced my self not to smoke.
Lets see how my 2nd day will be.
My crutch is gone
I just destroyed (with my husband and son's help) all my cigarettes I kept for 'an emergency' and I am feeling so nervous about how I will manage. Last time I tried to quit I panicked because I had none and went and brought more and started again. I now have the inhalater and the spray mist - they are both disgusting but I will give them a go. what have others done about times when you panic?

Wow 113 days not even a single Ciggy or even a puff of a smoke but I am proud of myself I might have had a few Canterbury creams on ice with a cap of Jim Beam or two or even a few glasses of Kentucky Honey bourbon with L&P n red bull but I am proud of myself I can enjoy a few drinks with friends and family and smoking is no longer an issue for me if I can do it anyone can (Y)
They have hit me hard.
For the past 3 days I have slipped with a few a day no more than 4 but enough for me to kick myself and restart my journey yet once again.
Why?? Not sure to be honest. I dont have a reason when I had the first one on Sunday I was fighting thoughts, voices so bad and I dealt with that all day until evening then I gave in.
Then its been a couple yesterday and today.
So just had a big talk to myself and reset as of tomorrow. Would of been 6 weeks today.
Living with a smoker doesnt help but he will stop when he wants I wont & dont hassle him as Ive been there and it makes you (the smoker) more determined to carry on.
But knowing that there are always smokes around is like a toture to someone trying so damm hard to stop.
Thinking of even putting the small patches on for the next few days to help me.
Over it so bad, maybe I may just be one of these people that cant quit. But then I see that statement and know thats not even an option. I can and will do this!!
Its so damm hard & so heart-wrenching.
