Well been a few days since I was here have had to be away for work. Made my quit day the day before I had to go, thinking that being with my boss (non smoker) would help me through those tough first days. Boy could I have been more wrong!!! So time to own my slips!!
I brought a pack of 20's second day, my excuse was stress but as we all know it was cravings. Hadn't thought it through, should have been at home for quit week 1. Well even though I slipped I have not fallen, I'm proud to say out of that packet I only had 3 then when home, instead of giving them to another smoker I broke them up and burned them!! Best feeling EVER because the old me would of just kept them "just in case"
So anyone struggling this week know that if you slip just don't let it make you fall!!!
Just wanted to say thank you to all who took the time to drop a message on my post. It's so nice to know that this will really be some way I can have support from people who are going through the same thing. Well here's the update for today.......All the prep is underway for quit day tomorrow, have patches and gum, lighters and ash trays are heading to the bin and am taking the day to wash bedding and curtains tomorrow (to get rid of that nasty smoke smell on them) So that should take my mind off having a smoke and keep my hands busy for the day. Ok last 2 smokes and 1 more sleep and I'll be smoke free! :)
Made the choice!
Well I have finally made the choice to quit!! As this is not my first attempt I am looking for as much help as I can get. I know there will be days when I come here and rant about the bad day I've had and how much I want a smoke. So if any of you are on and happen to see my rants please just pop on and give me a kick in the butt. I know this time will be it for me as I haven't enjoyed the taste or smell of smoking for sometime. I hate how much time, money and energy smoking has taken from me and my family. The best part of all is that I won't be doing it on my own, my hubby is just as committed and we will do it together!! I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with everyone and hearing all of your inspirational stories too. So for now stay strong and smoke free!! :)
