So I've had my troubles quitting smoking. I keep trying.
I had a lady from quitline call in the weekend and boy did she have a lot of information and advice. My advice is this, if you are having troubles with quitting call quitline . I will certainly call them in the future if i'm having quitting troubles.
I now have one full day behind me and I'm working on my 2nd now :)
My husband bought me a locket to show me his support. I was really surprised. I find myself holding my locket when I need some husband support, it really helps
Thanks for reading and your continued support Quit Fam
Almost a day :)
I'm going to bed now, I'm delighted to say that i have have not smoked today.
I don't like smoking.
I'm grateful to everyone in this online group.
I special thank you to Nanaturtle who was online last night at the right time last night and had the right things to say to help me.
Reset my quit stats to ZERO.
After having the flu for a week, I bought a packet of 20s after dropping my youngest at school and smoked from then, all day, couldn't sleep, so smoked all night ( guess why I couldn't sleep) then kept smoking until just before I started writing this.
I want to record for myself and for others exactly what I feel like right now.
Pleased, that I have managed to stop smoking. I'm beyond tired. My stomach and back hurt so bad. it hurts and is hard to breathe and bend my stomach to sit. I've basically done nothing but smoke. It rained, so I'm damp, noone likes smoking in the rain. I stink! Even when I had the flu, I could smell my soap and I smelt nice, that was cool. My lungs hurt. ( the place i assume my lungs are hurts) And why did i keep smoking after the pain started? and why did i keep smoking when I had the shakes?
so its time to think differently. What opens up for me as a non-smoker?what are my goals? What are rewards I can give myself? I think its time to find out what smoking is holding me back from doing!
Sleep well Quitfamily :)
feels like I have been sick forever,but really its about 6 days.
anyway I am now 21 days smokefree. accept i smoked on day 16 which I blogged about. At this stage I have decided not to change my quit date. In the future, I think I will need to.
Thanks quit fam.
not yesterday but the day before, I smoked. smoked quite a lot. First few felt good, then i felt crappy and ten I remembered why I don't smoke anymore and then I really felt bad that I had let myself down.
now its two days later, i've been sick as a dog for two days ,I'm certainly relieved not to be smoking. So i'm back on track quit wise.
have a nice day quit fam
2 weeks smokefree.
Today I am 14 days smokefree and working on my 15th day.
I feel a sense of achievement but I am very protective of my quit.
Have nice day quit family :)
Hi, I was woken up about lunchtime, I stayed up long enough to be grumpy to my Hubby, feel sorry, say sorry and go back to bed ( after putting on patch ,eating and a few other things )
I started a bit of a cough during the night, not pleasant, maybe its smoking related?
Was woken up around 7 for dinner. dinner was delish. Its 9:30pm I'm ready for bed again. Its my 14th day, I was expecting to feel pretty good right now.
The success of today is that I have not smoked!
No desire to smoke, I just wanted to be nice.
I just felt sleepy and unwell.
I am very pleased that when I wake up tomorrow, I will have 14 days smokefree. Its been worth it.
Sleep well quit family .
I thought about smoking tonight
I thought about going outside for a smoke, just one of those thoughts that come from habit and from it being Friday night. When I realized what I was thinking about, I put a lozenger in my mouth and grabbed some knitting and put my favourite comedy on the TV. I didn't really think about it again until now, another late night, I feel the need to blog. I'm learning with this quitting as I go. In general, its a simple concept NOPE. Its all very well for me to quit, In the first days, I feel terrible, I know whats going on, withdrawal, healing, very good stuff happening but I can FEEL it. Right now, i'm doing quite well, I'm almost functioning properly again. This stage here where I am feeling pretty good, why is it now that I thought about having a smoke.The physical fight was uncomfortable but i'm struggling to discribe my worry about what happens when the kids go back to school on Monday. My biggest threat, in the past has been complete freedom. When its just me at home. I have to find a way to do this for myself as well as my family reasons to stay quit. I really really want to stay quit. I'm completely open to suggestions, advice and stories . sleep well smokefree family.
Hello everyone, Isn't it great to be smokefree?
We went to a carnival today.actually we went twice. The first time, I noticed how much fun it was not having to leave to have a smoke. The second time, one of my children said with pleasure, "Hey! We don't have to wait for Mum to have a smoke". The comment made me feel really good.
My 12yr old who has been complaining about me smoking for years has been getting cuddly again. ( bless him ) I love cuddles.
All my boys have been out-spoken about the need and their desire for me to quit and I'm proud of the statistics and reasons and proof they have used.
I'm almost 2hrs into my 12th day, I have to focus on eating regular meals, drinking loads of water. And putting the patch on, first thing in the morning and remembering to have a lozenger when water doesn't take away the irritability. And remember NOPE (not one puff ever)
Thanks for reading. Have a nice smokefree day everyone .
10th day smokefree
I thought it was my 11th day,feeling a little cheated ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
I'm so proud of myself and grateful to everyone who has and is supporting me.
Have a nice smokefree day. drink plenty of water.
