Well I made it thru 1 day wasnt too bad ,still think ing about having one but keep putting it off .had my champix got my lozenges and minties so off to work now,good luck all you lot thanks for support.
almost a day
have managed to not smoke at all today,I did have bit of a craving around 2pm kept putting it off till 3pm,and sucked on a lozenge ,they last a while nearly two hours,drove home past shops and didnt stop.Im going out now to a meeting should be ok.I figure since I dont have a strong desire to quit I could just fake it till I make it.Havnt been couphing much today thats a bonus.Havnt told my wife im off yet I dont want to dissapoint her again.I know it bugs her a lot ,me smoking.Anyway felt good to be able to come on here and share my little success.
Was gona start the other day then had a crap day and thawt stuff it.Anyway decided im gona start tomoro Tuesday ,got a couple of you no whats left will have them before bed then my plan is to not have any before work ,at work im good then after work to stay stopped.I have got the lozenges if I find cravings to hard.
I know its nuts but I dont have a great desire to stop ,but im hoping to build up my desire to enjoy life free of bl%#@%y smokes.
I dont like being a slave to anything.
Im on the champix which ruins the smoking and worked well last time,ive just gotta take the plunge ,so here goes.
see you tomoro
Back for another go at quiting,I did manage to quit for three months last year before the Sept quake then picked up again.Ive started back on champix again and started a new job where I cant smoke for 8.5 hours while at work which is great ,but ive been struggling to not pick up a fag in the morning and again after work.I have to stop ,my health is crap .Im planning to not have a smoke tomoro before work then hopefully not after either,been saying that to myself for last few days ,thawt maybe coming on here again mite galvanise me into action.wish me luck ha
back again,been out there again smoked again for couple of weeks,didnt enjoy it and found it quit hard to want to stop again,but decided to do another 3 months on champix as its the only thing thats helped so far,i have slipped up loads of times but i keep learning stuff from it so eventually it must all add up and work ,its day three today in the past thats usually a tuff time cravings wise,was having a sneaky thawt before i could buy some fags have just one then put the packet away for another day,yea rite,i have realised im not very good at patting myself on the back when i achieve a milestone,so after a while all the good stuff ive acheived just adds up to ,nothing and when a trial or tuff time comes along i feel like i have nothing in the tank to deal with it,so im trying to be my own best freind and constantly thank myself whenever i acheive anything ,it does feel a bit weird but i think its a good thing to do,good to see so many familiar guys on here and all the newbies
Hi fellow quiters havnt been on for a while been head down bum up doing my assignments for study ,I have to do an essay .so I chose quitting smoking amongst Maori ,I wondered if I could pic you guys brains for ideas ,what works ,what helps most ,if we could get to a place where we feel the most sense of wellbeing what would that look like,I have to come up with a Maori metaphor that most resembles a Maori veiw of what could be most helpful,something around whanau and maybe mokopuna ,what do you reckon,anyway back to the books
Was feelin a bit stressed before thinking how ill get through the weekend without picn up when a courier knocked on the door my e cig just arrived from USA only ordered it online on monday,so been playing with that for last hour or so,its pretty cool ive got a whole lot of non nicotine cartridges for it it will take a bit of getting used to but im happy with it so far
third day off today had some good cravings for a while even started looking around the house for a smoke at one stage didnt find one luckily ,had a stinker of a headache again today and a bit of a gutsache part of the withdrawals i spose,I have managed to start working on one of my assignments today so thats good will try to do more tomoro and friday.I have ordered one of those E cigs from USA i think i mite need a bit of extra help, i ordered a whole bunch of non nicotine cartidges for it,I met a woman in Auckland who has been using one she let me try hers I think it could be a good back up plan
got though yesterday ok no major cravings or thoughts,ive got to get on and make a start on my assignments for my study but so far just cant get my head to focus long enuff,I can really relate to some of the blogs of just wanting to sit around and blob out thats all I seem to want to do most of the time ive become so lazy and unmotivated,the zumba still goes on felt a good wee shake a while ago as I was reading blogs a 4.3 just a tiddler ,we are becoming so blasey about it all but you gotta get on eh,must get up and get something done see ya
back on the horse
I got thru the big one ok then over the next week the mental obsession to smoke just seemed to get bigger and bigger till i just thawt stuff it ive got enuff on my plate without trying to cope with nicodemon so i decided to pick up, ive smoked one 25 grm of baccy and one pac of 20,my throat feels like crap ,couphing again,yesterday i decided thats enuff ,so no smokes today got a headache but am ok ,didnt suffer any real damage here in shirley that i know of ,have had my son and his girlfreind staying with us since the bigun .we went to auckland for the weekend so feel a bit more relaxed now than i was last week.I have kind of missed coming on here your not a bad bunch really ,I hope all you other cantabs are ok.brent
