Cranky pants

Posted in Getting started 16 Feb 2020

Hi you good things,

I'm on day 13 without smoking. I'm feeling kind of antsy. Well, a bit aggressive. Luckily I live alone, so after pacing and general swearing and looking for a way to curb this, I thought I'd check in with people who are on the same journey. OK. Cheese has calmed me.

    Hi Arwon. You made me laugh. If only cheese worked for everyone! I really think you are on to something here. Tomorrow will be day 14 and so on and so on... Enjoy the new number each day. Shout it out loud with every passing day. Reward yourself by never going back to day 1...

    I love cheese so much that when i was a youngster i ask my granny for a brick of real cheddar cheese for my birthday. If something satisfies that yen for something why not use it temporarily.I can't think of anything much worse for you than smoking, and we know it is not just a phase. Keep on doing great!

    Hi Arwon, yes i think most of us would have been through a cranky pants stage. Cheese works for me every time, in nearly any situation of my life, cheese, biscuits and pickles 😊 You are doing really well, so hang in there and stay focused👍

    Hi Arwon, I'm a day or two behind you and I have had some moments of agitation and irritability like you. I dont really know why, because I'm so pleased that I dont touch those smokes anymore. They disgust me.
    I have not spent $265 in 10 or 11 days.
    I'm not going backwards to relive day 1
    No Thanks
    I Dont Smoke

    Good on you Arwon. You should reward yourself at milestones along the way, and being from Hunter New England, maybe head up to Pokolbin to the Smelly Cheese Shop near the HVG, or the HV Cheese Shop. So good. And some hunter semillon or

    I think I have just talked myself into my next reward....

    Go Arwon whatever gets you through, for me its 1 caramel lolly to suck on per day, talk about living life in the fast lane!! I'm now on day 15 and can't say i have got antsy but have been oversensitive to some negative comments sent my way, but hey day 13 or 15 We Can Do This!! Congrats

    Thanks for your support guys! I will shout out my victorious day 22 smoke free to the street... Ok I tried but my neighbour came out so I made it into a softer little ditty. 22 days smoke free, 22 days and I'll be, richer and keener to hire a cleaner, oh who wouldn't want to be me? I did hire a cleaner too. 77 bucks a week so I have left over dosh for wine and cheese. :)
