The odyssey

Posted in Quit experiences 27 Apr 2012

This is my second really serious quit attempt. Last time I quit for four months and begun to smoke again not because I physically felt like smoking but had a persistant feeling I was missing out on something-"like cancer" how ridiculous hey.I also felt like I was not having as much fun because i wasn't smoking. I know intellectually how these reasons don't make sense. I know I need to be more aware of managing these feelings and emotions this time. Guys I have three children that need raising, I have been very ashamed of my smoking for a long time. I am on day two of not smoking and am using patches which i think are helping a little. All of the women in my family have smoked and I am determined not to pass this addiction to my beautiful daughter.Has anyone tried hypnosis i am thinking of having some sessions this time. Good luck everyone

    Welcome Prettygirl.There is someone here who has had great success with hypnosis. I'm sure he'll reply to your post. Wow, 4 months and felt like you were missing out on something! That's what I've been saying about the voice in the head taking advantage as soon as you let your guard down. Good luck this time around. There's a lot of great people on this site who can help keep you motivated and inspired and feeling like you're gaining everything and missing out on nothing but misery. I've got 3 beautiful children as well and also want to be a better example to them. So let's be the people we know we can be!

    As Mickey said , those voices keep on trying so we have to be on guard.

    I bought a hypnosis CD for $270 a couple of weeks ago. I am now on day 10 of quitting.
    I can't be sure that it was listening to the cd that worked for me as it was 4 days after listening to it that I woke up and just decided to quit. It probably worked with a delayed reaction.
    I'm more than happy to upload a copy of the cd for you.
    I too have 2 beautiful girls and I'm using them as motivation to help quitting also !
    Good luck !
