First day folks
This is it I am hoping to quit this habit for good this time. Went to the doctors this week and she was shocked that I was smoking again and read me the riot act saying I will have a heart attack or stroke within 5 years!
My darling partner has been smoke free now for 3 months and I feel awful smoking when he doesn't. So I have some good reasons. Now I have to put in the hard work and kick this long time addiction for good.
Got to stay strong.
Thanks for reading. And hope everyone has a lovely smokefree day with your friends and loved ones.
kept waking up during the night but no more than usual, and dreaming lots but not out there types.
Every now and again I go to do something and think oh that's right I don't smoke anymore.
I am not afraid of it anymore and I know that I am a determined lady who won't let anything get the better of me. I am angry with this government and I am not going to give them anymore of my hard earned money.
So another day at home to get through the hardest few hours and then off to work the biggest test of them all.
Over half of my colleagues smoke and used to have a smoke together and the service users are heavy tobacco users, so it will be quite interesting.
Good luck everyone and thanks for listening
16 hours smokefree
Isn't strange how you can read everyone elses's experience but your own seems different and harder than theirs. After 34 years of a love hate relationship with tobacco I am finally going to give it up. I always used to admire those quitters but could never do it myself, nor did I really try.
My reasons are pretty common ones but the main one is for me to have a really nice place to live I cannot afford the house and smoking.
My husband decided to quit 4 months ago and he has been falling off the wagon at night or weekends and says I am his trigger because I still smoked. Not any-more my darling. This morning he brought me a coffee, some water in a sipper bottle and my extra gum. We had a discussion about the remaining tobacco and finally decided to throw it the bin outside. He said that if you do try and get it from the bin outside it would make you feel really scummy. Please to say I havn't gone out to the bin today.
I chose my quit day on my first day of 2 days off so I can take it easy on myself and try and get a handle on the those feelings, and cravings.
They have knawed away at me all day, but my thinking is strong and keep telling myself wow you are not a smoker anymore, and good girl, and my god I am amazing.
So to anyone who is reading this it is true even hard core addicts like me can do it, so can you.
With respect to you all and quitline.
