Another day fag free yippee.I did have a few wonky moments today when my ecigs battery went flat at work.I didn't have a plan b, I did have a few thawts of buying some fags but kept telling myself I can get through till I go home and recharge it which I did.I kept talking to my HP all the way home and amazingly I think I had green lights all the way home and hardly even had to stop once.I shall make sure I have some lozenges and charger in my bag as a backup from now on.I did notice also that I felt a bit fearful about picking up a smoke again.I think I am slowly regaining the will to live and experience a healthy life for the first time in forever.So I don't think it was a bad thing.I am certainly finding this tima around very different from the zillion other other times ive tried quiting.I feel kind of strange in a good way like I am waking up from a deep sleep and noticing lots of little things for the first time.Hopefully im not loosing my marbles.
managed three days smokefree,yippee. feel like im cheating a bit sucking on the ecig it certainly takes care of any cravings which I could never get past before.I think ive just gotta do what ever I need to make it work.my health is slowly getting better not coughing up so much muck now.my chest doesn't hurt so much now when I breath,I can breath in quite deep without coughing, now which feels good.I want to be able to walk up hills without feeling like im gonna croak,a long time ago I think I could do that.
ive been smoking 40 years non stop since I was 12 so its hard to remember a time when I was healthy and fit.I think im starting to feel more positive which is great,ive felt quite negative for so long,
this addiction really is subtle and a thief of everything that's good ,that's my motto now .Fagoff nico#$@%,Im gonna live.thanx HP
back on [the wagon]
Hi all ,back again for the umpteenth time.I got sick again last week ,struggling to breath couphing up yuk stuff,so I decided to quit ,that was Saturday night.Tuesday today and its two days off the fags.I do feel better already breathing easier,not coughing so bad and I think the bug I had is clearing up,been on antibiotics.yesterday morning I had a few mad moments hunting round the house for a smoke,but couldn't find any luckily,the cravings went away eventualy.I bought a vaporisor yesterday and been suckin on that all day seems to keep the cravings at bay.I think il try using that for a week or so till I feel stronger then nock that on the head too.
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
