Well next thing it was all over now I was getting the silent treatment we ended up arguing shortly after. I said sorry but it was not accepted and we ended up heading home. Still arguing I left and now I'm parked at the beach. I'm so tired from this quit I've been literally exhausted all the time. No matter how much sleep I get. Now I'm so tired and feel like crap because I feel like the whole thing should have gone differently.
We are both so stubborn and don't easily cool off. I just wanted a good day together. Now it's ruined.
I know it's nicotine withdrawal even with the patch. If this had of happened before we would have had a smoke before heading home(smokefree car) and while we smoked we would have talked it through and hugged it out.
Now we just exploded and couldn't talk or hug it out.
Hope this time things are better and we don't fight again. This is typical when we stop.
Anyway glad to talk it out with you guys.

229 days and a new addiction!
So until school starts back and I go back to work, my life has been spent giving her tons of love and patience. It has also meant we have been clocking up at least 10km a day walking. My new addiction ;)
The awesome thing about walking fast is that sometimes I get a bit breathless on the big hills, I am rocking it. There is no way I could have done this when smoking 40 a day. I was seriously out of breath walking up my driveway!
So a win-win! Our beautiful new addition to the family is where some of my saved money goes..and she's giving me back some extra life and joy :)

Stats Update: 9 days smokefree
Starting to panic 'cos I haven't even been grumpy, mad or anything.
Matter of fact, I have probably been in a better mood than when I was smoking!
The Temple is wary.

Do 'cravings' increase around three weeks? I've heard this theory...
Feel like i'm using gum all the time, but actually using less than the packet each day.
Just getting cravings coming back, maybe I'm not using enough gum, but I honestly feel like I'm using it all the time, even though it's better than smoking all the time.
Aaargh feeling so meh.

I've had a busy day but the moment I sit down that black devil is back in my head. dam dam dam. Haven't got any and I live 20ks from the nearest shop, so it aren't ganna happen. I look at the those numbers above and go yeah. Amount saved is equal to my new mort. per month. That is what is driving me. All that money up in smoke and nothing but a bad smell left. Any way the laugh for the day was my son and I trying to catch the pet rabbit. He now resides under the pelts in the hay barn. He comes out to eat and we had chased him round for days but he's beaten us everytime. Another day tomorrow. Cheers all
