Felt dreadfull this morning!! I could have woken up on day 36 this morning instead i cant lie to myself - Today is day one! ..again
I absolutely STUNK by the end of the night, felt sick light headed and queezy and my mouth tasted ashy not surprising given we shared and pkt of 20's in one evening.
We came home showered, brushed our teeth and washed all our clothes. Yuck. But still felt ashamed when visiting my mum today I would have felt so much better had i not given in.
Oh well of course we (husband and I) talked about our blow out and have decided it was STOOPID so we will just take gum with us next time and not be muppets.
Mistakes are for learning, eh.
re-enforces the meaning of N.O.P.E!! Stick with it you will be kicking your self if you dont!!

On the bright side have made it through them without smoking.
Also got through the first social event with smokers... and being offered a smoke.

Relief and a bit of confusion
...I don't have to worry about any of that, Its quite a relief.
I'm on day four but am being really serious when i say Im a little concerned however that this time giving up seems too easy?! (i had roughly a 15 a day habit -more if drinking- and would absolutely freak out if i ran out, I could not go a day with out), Ive had the occasional craving but nothing major. Ive been on patches before but this time seems different. Like is this the calm before the storm? I guess best to just go with the flow.
I haven't been surrounded my temptation really yet. no visits from smoking-friends or other triggers, but weirdly I'm not dreading these things like I normally would. I haven't told as many people that i've quit compared to previous times, in fact i could count the ones i have this time one one hand - but feel great a bout it.

Day 3 Yippee!!
The blue-duct tape is still holding my patch (and my piece of mind) securely in place! I've bought regular chewing gum, despite the occasional strong craving can't bring myself to try the nicotine gum. Can anyone out there in blog-land tell me what they think of it?
I tried sharing my hypnosis quit smoking session with my husband (who's on day 4 of quitting) - but couldn't tell from his snoring if it had a positive effect other than being an effective Lula-bye.
So am soon on to Day Four - Solider on my quit smoking buddies! Were saving a fortune!!

:) ARGH! Day one..
Time seems to be going soooo slowly though. First day back to work tomorrow and that will be the true test, no more stepping out in the cold windy smoko area. May have to go for a walk instead.
I downloaded a quit smoking app that seems to be helping its very visual and has heaps of info including showing me my current craving levels, nicotine levels and what my carbon monoxide levels would be at my current - hrs smokefree. Also downloaded a hypnosis thing which is cool too - so relaxing and helps with positive messages.
Im using patches and have used them before but generally freak out if i think they are going to fall of - so my husband secured todays patch with bright blue Duct tape! Sounds stupid but saves him from me going mental when they fall off! :)
I am finding that i need to keep busy and so far so good.
Im Quiting for my health and for the $. You know its getting beyond a joke when you don't want to leave the house because you've run out of smokes or worse knowing that I'm saying whatever i can to manipulate family members into feeling sorry for me and lending me $ to buy some.
Im saying good bye to a habit of about 14years! but being in my mid-twenties I now feel like im mature enough to make a good go of it.
