No smoking

Happy to year to you all

I hope you all had a safe Xmas and new year.

I almost caved today was very hard today to fight the mind telling me to buy a packet and start again just 1 more packet.

I got grumpy because of it because I couldn't get my fix. I went to bed and had a sleep and I am glad I did not give it. It's a very nasty addiction. But new start to a new year. I will get there.

    You did it before and can do it again Gemma! This time you will make it last and find success and freedom.l Never give up :giving Up! You can succeed and be free! Click on happiness above and read my post entitled that. (More for the newcomers than you Gemma) Thinking of smoking in a different way helps! Of course you will all want to read "Allen Carr" too!

    Hi Gemma and Happy New Year to you too. We live under stressful times at present, and I would guess this was the past behaviour when outside influences are crowding your mind. You might consider going back over any other emotions you had in the past, and manage it differently.

    In the meantime do plenty of meditation, deep breathing, and find joy in one thing that you are doing or receiving. NOPE (not one puff ever)

    Well done resisted that urge. Stay positive and do whatever you have to to resist in future. The temptations fade and you can win this mind game. Happy new year to you
