How are you going Overdoz?

Saw my counselor today and she was generally pleased with my efforts to conquer the weed, I blew a six on the CO monitor, so that wasn't bad, will not be able to see her for another two weeks Public Holiday next Monday here in Australia. I  also connected with Quitline here in Australia a phone service, I can ring them anytime 24X7, there's plenty of support here  in Aussie to kick the weed. Bought another pack of patches and some gum to get me over the next fortnight. So I'm digging in for the fight. I have to make quitting a priority in my life or I wont get anywhere, Patience with the process. it is not an outcome I am looking for but a way of life.

I trust you are well

Kind regards

Anthony

Sounds good. Im in my second day of no eating (fasting) i messed up Saturday, cause under stress i bought a pack had a few and then tore them up and threw them away. It sucks, to go through the same pain so many times. So when all goes to hell, i just decide to not eat for a day or two, went to the gym two times yesterday, getting out of my apartment to walk. Yeah thats my thinking, if your life sucks, stops eating...

Have a good day in Australia, its cold in Chicago today

Hi Overdoz, sorry to hear about your relapse, I have just realised by stopping and starting I am putting myself through Hell week over and over again, I have to stop this recycling. Fasting and gym work together and quitting sounds a bit much for my 70 year old body to be going through all at once, I will quit the smokes first and worry about the body later, but each to their own.

We had a cracker of a thunder storm yesterday afternoon, dropped over an inch of rain in 20 minutes. good for our lawn which is brown at the moment. Went for a walk yesterday after seeing the counselor, down town looking for some photographer books, might try the library next.

Sorry to hear your feeling crap, There's light around the corner I am sure. Take care

Kind regards

Thanks Anthony, im glad Australia got some much needed rain. Yes fasting, going to the gym and quitting smokes is a bit much. But i fast here and there, i did it this time more for mental clarity and a firmer commitment to quit since i relapsed Saturday night. Yes you are right hell week or the first hell day, sucks repeating. 

One thing at a time.

Welcome to the Forum.  Have you actually started your quit, or just getting ready to start?  

I will reach 3 weeks quit at 1:30 today!  I have had numerous tries over the last 6 months but I intend for 2020 to be the year I don't touch a cigarette.

Good luck and feel free to post if you are in trouble.  I am on and off here during the day but, not as often as I would like.
