Keep reminding yourself how smoking does nothing for the better. I keep telling myself how energetic i am now and how good i feel and realised its only feeling normal and that shows me how much smoking can make you feel crap.. Its doing nothing good and now i have the motivation growing to achieve a lot more than i could when i smoked. I was lazy and wanted to just do nothing. But i feel awake ag...
Like planning dinner, the worst part is wondering what to make. Doing the rest is easy in comparison.
First there are the choices, beef, chicken , fish or pork? Then factors involved (too long to thaw, too hot to cook, too heavy, its at the bottom of the freezer. Maybe you are missing an ingredient.
Once you have made a decision and have the ingredients you need you can see it to its compl...
hard boiled sweets were great on my first evening. I got balance rhodiola complex multi vitamins and this is helping with my nervous energy. Also the support from best friend who gave up cigarettes has really helped me.
So i finally did, my leg is through the fence. I have one smoke left and this morning i decided to use NRT to help get the other through. I have instilled the fear of both smoking and using NRT at the same time will be dangerous and im sticking to it. My last smoke will be at lunch today and then in place i will only use a lozenge when i absolutely have to. I must do this!

So i had my last smoke tonight, i threw the empty packet and all lighters away. But i can feel the panic set in that tomorrow when i wake up i will want a smoke. Is it routine thats causing this panic? Will it go away? I have smoked for the past 13 years after a stupid decision to light up at 18yrs old.
How can i stop the need to have a pack there as a security blanket?
I have just started my plan, I have 2 cigarettes left then that's it. I am worried about weight gain as I am already overweight but going to start a healthy eating plan. Goodluck

When i go swimming, there are ways of entering the cold lake water
1) Wade in inch by inch and clench my teeth until i can get to where it is deep enough to dive in.
2) Wade this way until i am out far enough.
3) Run and Cannonball off the dock
4) Do a graceful dive at a safe place from the dock.
I hate pain and suffering, numbers 1 and 2 are out. While 3 is fast, you may hit bottom ...
I am away from home and cannot smoke around my family, so it's easy not to smoke at all. I can't understand my own self, as I'm afraid that when I get home I will start again. I know all of the reasons to stop, and it makes me feel so much better - even did a 7.5 km run this morning - twice as far as my most recent pathetic efforts.
Every single one of my previous quits has failed, obviously...
