Hello All

Ok so got 15 days behind me as I quit 7h00 on 27 Feb 2018.

Morning was very interesting.

Had to talk harsh to my little girl due to her lying to me.

But to tell the truth I think I also added some of my not smoking into my anger as well.

After I dropped my little girl off at school and started the journey to work.

All the way to work I am just thinking of how good that one puff will be now. My travel time to work is normally 35 minutes.

But then I started to recall my previous failed to quit attempt.

How was that starting again:

1. It tasted bad.

2. Got a major head rush.

3. Felt guilty that I failed.

4. And just continued smoking.

So after recalling all of that.

Got to work without a puff and mouth washed my mouth with some water.

Proud of my self that I did not pull over to get a loose ciggie and smoke that one puff.

Hope you all find something in here and also keep on going.

    Well done for not caving to the mind tricks ,hope it's continued. I'm sure your girl will forgive your anger when you've kicked the smokes. I have had a few moments similar ,I have an 8 yr old and had to apologise and say mummy's a little extra cranky while she is giving up cigarettes . He's forgiven me ,it's normally teatime and it's my craving time ,he's not eating dinner fast enough so I can continue to keep busy by washing the plate he's eating from lol. Oh well day 41 getting there after 35 years smoking cancer sticks!
