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!!!
Wow !!!! I’m in awe !!!! Veronica that post was really inspirational I’m 12 days in and after reading your post and hearing how you kept going through such a traumatic time I feel a total wimp!!!!! Please keep going hun - if you can then I can !!!!!
my thoughts are with you and I hope your partner gets well soon
Allen Carr.. great. Not good
That pic says it all, though they haven't struck yet. LOL I know they will. I have walked this path before, Boy am I glad I made this decision.
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,
At first congratulations on your three dot weeks soon to be four.
Sorry to hear about your girlfriend in hospital I just pray that the medical staff there are good at their job and that your g/f does not suffer to much.
It's good to hear that you're being a good support, keep posting when the craves come and let us know when the seizures pass.
Your right Paula,
It's not a life you want to live as a smoker especially when you have tasted freedom without cigarettes. I know which life I prefer. I just go for a walk when I get a craving we live by the river so it's nice to go for a walk.
Yes I feel good about this quit, congratulations on your quit, you must have a few months under your belt now, well done.
I know I can beat this demon, just take it one day at a time
You have some serious time quit now Overdoz, well done, I am just slowly building my bricks in the wall between me and the demon. It's good to have experienced quitters alongside you in this journey of hope and freedom.
Yes I love Allen also and he is committed to his task, I have the book I don't have the audio. I believe I can do this today and will continue to NOPE everyday.
But just the same there are some very good knowledge based articles on this site, with some wonderful people providing support.
Congratulations on your two month quit, may there be many more to follow
