    Day 1 (take two)

    Posted in Quit experiences 1 Apr 2014
    3 Comments

    good morning everyone. here i am .... Day One! (again) unfortunately i am tired, having been awake most of the night. being tired is often a trigger to just sit outside with a cuppa and a smoke instead of getting on with my day. it is taking all my effort to not pop up the street and buy a pack.  i have at least identified the trigger, perhaps that is half the battle??  :-/

    Hello everyone I have been here before, and relapsed. I am not proud that I did, BUT I am proud to say that I have planned tomorrow is my quit for good day.  I remember all the emotions (good and bad) when I stopped smoking last time, and at least this time I know what I am in for.  So here goes. I am looking forward to my impending journey.  :-)

    Day 10 ... having troubles

    Posted in Quit experiences 5 Mar 2014

    hi all,  oh i am struggling ... even sitting here typing this, i am craving a smoke. i have read that cravings only last minutes, but no one said that the cravings were often back to back ;-) i have come to the conclusion that perhaps it would be so much easier if i were on my own whilst trying to stay quit from smokes. less dramas, less worry, less dealing with my husbands withdrawal...

    hello everyone my rollercoaster continues. emotions are up and down. i am tired from not sleeping. i have very little interest in things around here. sure i do the stuff i have to .. washing, cooking, cleaning, administration of TLC to my gorgeous boys (not necessarily in that order), but that is about it.  i know i am going to beat this, i am willing to ride this out. i have had depressio...

    Hello everyone, oh what a trying week i have had. i have faced many bouts of adversity in my life, but this one because it was my choice, seems to be one of the toughest. i experienced a whole range of emotions, and so have others in my household. i dealt with my slipping up incident, and am ok that it happened. i can only hope i will be able to handle the next problem we have w...

    hello all, usually i feel quite chipper when i am typing on here, today no so much. yesterday was quite an emotional day. i finally began to talk about how i was feeling to my husband, i was very teary and he was lovely.  for no real reason, i snapped at something, so did he. words were said on both sides, and to cut a long yuck story short, i had a smoke.  :-( after we had both cal...

    hello all, well this week seems to have been dragging on. things i used to do, like tending to my garden, holds no happiness.  i am feeling sad and down, lethargic and drained, very emotional and terribly lost. there are so many things i could be doing but it is like i only have no energy and only one amount of willpower ....... and it is ALL going to fighting off resuming smokin...

    Hello  I put this down as day two and a half because it is not officially day 3 until 6.40pm tonight! yesterday was a huge struggle. emotions running wild. problems here at home sparked my waving thoughts, emotinos have usually been my main trigger ...... stress, upsets, emotions, arguments, all the yucky stuff. and major yuck happened, to the point of hubby walking down to town ...

    hello all, here i am at day two.   more accurately ... 42 hours. but 2 days sounds so much more profound! today started much the same as yesterday, i surprise myself by not craving (or should i say caving) in the mornings. the coffee and smoke ritual was where i thought i would suffer the most. no i am having a different problem. my emotions. one minute i am up and happy, the next i crash...

    the title says it all. today was full of so many different emotions all rolled into one, that interesting was all i could come up with.  the day started fine. normally first thing of a morning, the kettle goes on, cuppas made, and outside we go. so why not i figured. the kettle went on, the cuppas were made, and outside I went (forgot my cuppa) time to be busy. but as the day went on...

    Hello This is the first time in have signed up to a quit smoking site on the pc. In am hoping this will be some sort of an incentive to actually quitting. In am (and in mean AM) stopping smoking today. Both my husband and in smoke, and both stopping today. Why today? No reason, just the end of the pack in guess. We have done it before, at the end of the pack stopping .. and not been succes...
