Hey Breather, thanks for the positive thoughts as it has give me a lot to think about! I'm glad that your doing well and remaining positive! I like that saying about "One puff is to much and a thousand cartons is never enough", It hits the nail on the head for what nicotine addiction really is.. Remember Breather NOPE! Stay strong mate! P.S I want freedom!!
Hello Jamie I have to say that I'm getting on a lot better than I used to. Although it hasn't been easy at times the benefits have outweighed anything that I've had to go through. I like the fact that I no longer have nicotine stained fingers and teeth to be embarrased about and hardly ever cough anymore. Gradually over time we became dependent and gradually over time we learn how to live without it. View any cravings as a healing process , drown them with ice water and reward yourself for another day won. Remember that one puff is too many and a thousand cartons never enough. Freedom is ours for the taking if we really want it. Yay for you. breather
Hey Breather!! I've came across many of your posts as I've been hoking through the forums! Cheers for the advice, I've just pulled an Ice-cold bottle of water out of the freezer!! Beats choking myself with a stinking cigarette any day! How are you getting on after so many days Breather?? Each time I feel that wee bit more healthier It's like a reward!!
Jahamin Way to go on 36 days smoke free. Yay for you ! Ice water for the craves and don't forget to reward yourself. Some people stop smoking while they are young enough and before they have all the nasty things happen to them. As we learned how to smoke we have to learn how to live a new way of life if we are to be successful. You're the most important person here. Tell yourself that no matter what happens I won't smoke today. Again , yay for you ! breather
First of all thanks for taking the time to reply! Yeah Cameless thats exactly how I feel at the minute. I don't know If I would have to energy to go through It all again. I've been going back and forth to cigarette's for ages now and I really want It to stick for good!! Cameless I would LOVE to be where you are right now! Congratulations with all those days you have racked up!! How are you finding it these days? Hey Ashley, I have been taking Nicorette QuickMist for 5 weeks but I have switched onto Lozenges now. Also started training for Muay Thai which helps a lot! Keeps me motivated to feel fit and healthy!
Those 36- hard earned days are nothing to sneeze at! One thought that has helped me hold on to this "new found freedom" was, if I keep this quit going I won't have to go through all this again. I really had no idea what a slave I was to those cancer sticks until I really quit. Stick with us here. You can do this!
Hey guys how's it going?! I've read many posts over the last lot of days and there is so many good supportive people on this site! I have quit several times in the past, 6 months being my longest quit. I really want to get through this once and for all. I'm quit now for 36 days. I think I'm just out of what you guys call the 30 day pit?? Keep up the quit guys and don't give in!!!
