Hi Anthony

Welcome to this gorgious forume. I am quite new my self, but I have actually managed to day 24 today. It is a true roller coaster and these two days has been the worst for me. But I am so thankful that I have this forume. The last 24 hours I have been at the hospital with my girlfriend and it has been so scary all of it. And even when I have hold her in my arms while she had had seizures for hours and hours  - I have had the phone in the other hand and posted here. I need to be here. And I hope you will stay here during your good and bad days tulip

Im with you on leaving that life of addiction that really wasn't a life. Smoking controlled everything I did. Now Im free. I feel 100 % better already. I talk to myself alot. Beats smoking. I even talk to strangers in stores if I get a crave. I will say "excuse me do you know where the yeast is " and then " You look familar, seems like I've seen you before". Lol by then Im laughing and the craves gone. Keep doing whatever you need to, to not smoke. I do silly stuff at home sometimes to pass a crave. Ive rearranged my sock drawer so many times and my food in my kitchen cabnets. My husband can tell when Ive had a rough crave day, cause he can't find anything.  Keep NOPE-ing. Have a great nonsmoking Friday.

Hi Anthony I am so rooting for you and I absolutely know without a doubt you can do this. You got very far in a quit before and you so can do it again. Put this addiction behind you once and for all there's a beautiful life to be lived without the need for cigarettes or the pain and heartache they cause. You deserve better for yourself. One day at a time. You got this!!!!  Hugs.

Hi Anthony glad you are back, and it gives me motivation that i have made the right decision to quit cause i see that you want to quit, you see that it is not worth it. Im not judging you, i tried to quit for like 3 years after i had relapsed, and it was a tug of war. Keep trying. Allen Carr is good, this site is better i think.

Hi Anthony

im 12 days in just wanted to say hi. I know you can do this and it’s about finding your own coping strategies I think??!? I was determined not to swap cigs for nibbles so now when a craving hits I force myself to run up n down stairs 10 times - totally bonkers I know but I’m trying to train my subconscious into associating cravings with being knackered n hopefully they will die down a bit?  Yep - totally bonkers I know - good job I have an understanding boss ha ha 

let me know how you get in n KEEP GOING!!!

15 hours, 20 minutes and 7 seconds. 19 cigarettes not smoked, saving $19.12. 

Congratulations on your three months quit, precious, way to go, go girls.

I am just concentrating on today, one day at a time,

Gosh I'm getting hungry, it's midday here on a Saturday

I still have not been for my walk, the weather is balmy here not much breeze and I should be out.

Kind regards Screwadriver, I wish you all the best on your new life journey,

Anthony
