Yup done it again!
Well my quit date has officially been and gone...havent stopped smoking, probably to afraid to would be the ultimate reason for not stopping....
My quit date now seems so far out there that I have set it to december so hopefully (fingers crossed) that I have given up by then.. So much money I have wasted on this habit i am beginning to wish i never started..
Stress is killing me at the moment from giving up, the normal money problems, relationship problems, etc... Yes probably excuses is what some are probably thinking but i am litterally running out of ideas on what to do and how to do it.
I am spending $50 on a packet of tobacco then $12 here and $18 there on talimaids...
Anyone have any idea on what i could do... I have patches and gum but i am finding gum doesnt taste that nice or the patches stop the gravings but then i find i get frustrated because of having nothing to do while not smoking.
I have a 1 year old that has started to mimick me in what i do so any suggestions..
Please feel free to leave comments
Thanks guys :-)
Didnt work out as I wanted....
Well today is the 15 of Feb and im still smoking, i tried my absolute best to not have the smoke but as routine is i had a smoke just to pass time...what an idiot i was ha? This has not been i great time for me in trying to give up....does anyone have any tips for using the patches and gum? Something that i can change cos in the morning i get up, make a coffee and have a smoke then get my son up and gives him breakfast etc and then make my partners lunch for work in order to kick this habit i need something to do for the times when i have nothing to do, when im anxious, stressed or around family members that smoke and friends? I really want to give up but i would like the advice of other people that have quit on what they did in different situations.....HELP ME please.....
Anyways such a good day outside, loving the fine weather, bit hot though...for now cya
Please leave comments im interested in all feed back :-)
2 days before i give up
Well today is the 30th of Jan 2011, I am 2 days from giving up the habit i have had for the last 7 years, hoping i do quit and stay quit....(Fingers crossed). I cant wait for all the benefits of not smoking, i will have energy to run around with my sun, energy for walking and not getting so puffed...Am so greatfull for all the support i am getting on here. I honestly thought it wasnt going to work but seeing all of the comments and how farpeople have come it is amazing the support... Thumbs up to all that are taking this journey with us to quit the habit that has taken so much away from us :-)
Why i need to give up
Well this is officially going to be the 1st time that i am going to try and give up the habit i have been doing since i was 15 just on 16 and im now 23. I have a 9 month old son who needs his mum and dad around to run after him and i have come to the conclusion that if i continue to smoke that that is what is robbing me of spending time with my son, chasing him around, playing games, etc. Ive not only chosen to give up because of that reason but also because of the price it is...It is now costing me $100 a week for 2 50g. I mean it is expensive and i cant really afford to...just havent had the motivation to because it 1st started with the odd 1 when i go out, then 1 turnt to 2 and before i knew it i was smoking full time....way 2 expensive of a hobby to carry on...i also needed the support from people also giving up to kind of lean on if i wanted a smoke which is something that i never had when i previously tried to give up...Anyone got suggestions i need to give up to be healthy and spend time with my family instead of going outside for a smoke..
