What makes smoking inconvienent for you?

Smoking is inconvenient for me because every minute of every day was planned around where and when I could grab a quick smoke. Standing in all kinds of weather, not even able to go to a movie theatre without the thought of how I was going to make it 2 hours without having a cigarette. I will not allow this addition to control me any longer.

Yesterday was a long day

Boy makes you wonder what the heck is happening. Yesterday was for the most part one long day of withdraw. Don't know why, started in the morning when I woke up and lasted almost until dinner time. Did my part of trying to distract myself with other tasks but never expected the withdraw to be that strong again after 9 days. Best part of it all was I did not give in. Still smoke free.

The patch really isn?t quitting !!!

You know I am getting so tired of people telling me that I really am not kicking the habit because I am using a nicotine patch. So in other words just because I decided to use some additional help to knock this bad habit out of my life once and for all my 11 days of being smoke free don't count. To me that is just total BS. It's still hard work right now and would be so easy to give in to that mentality of "Oh I can have just one" but I refuse to give in to that devil. So to those who tell me this really isn't quitting.... BUNK to that.

7 days smoke free

 Mornings are the most difficult but if I keep my mind focused on other activities that keep my hands and mind busy it helps.  I just keep telling myself how far I have already come. 11 days without a cigarette is huge for me, and to give in to the addiction knowing I would have to start all over again. Nope, going through this once is more than enough incentive for me to stay away for good.

Now this is just crazy!!

I can hardly believe it. Yesterday was the first time in a very long time that there were actually long periods of time where I didn't have any thoughts of having a cigarette. No thoughts of how much I miss them or how nice it would be just to have one.  Sounds crazy, but after smoking for as long as I did, that is a huge milestone for me. I can't believe I am almost through my secind week already. I want, I need, I will kick this devil straight in the ass and come out the winner.

Now this is just crazy!!

Thanks Stellablue. It is great to have a place where we can go and share our experiences with this challenge in life. It's so hard for people who have never had to fight this addiction to really understand or relate to what it is like to quit this awful habit.
With my fifth grandchild on the way I realized I was only being selfish to continue with my addiction. I so much want to share in their lives in growing up. When I have the urge to smoke it helps to keep me focus on what I need to do just thinking of what I would be missing if I wasn't around to share the love and joy that they bring to my life. One battle at a time, one day at a time is bringing me that much closer to freedom from my nicotine addiction.

14 Days Smoke FREE!!

It's still hard for me to comprehend that I am actually 14 days without a single cigarette. WOW 14 DAYS. No more planning every moment around when and how I will have a smoke. It's so great to be free again. Sure there have been challenges over the last 14 days but my approach has been one of taking it in small steps vs. thinking about how I will feel about it tomorrow. One minute, one hour, one day at a time.

Quitting tomorrow

I find myself thinking some of the same things after 14 days. Then I think about a milestone I have reached in 14 days. After 30+ years of smoking I would have never imagined even going 1 day without a smoke let alone 14 days. We can't change the past but we can certainly make the changes for a healthier future. Congrats on the 10 days Sparrow, keep up the good work!!
