To start smoking again

I know it is politically correct to say I hate smoking but I liked it! I miss my coffee and cigarette in front of the TV, I miss the taste of it.

I gave up three years ago to give a good example to my daughters but I have piled on weight, I do not feel any fitter, I think I am more stressed (well I am at the moment) and I am no better off as snacks and new clothes are costing more.

It all started last week, someone dropped a new unopened packet and I picked it up. Suddenly I had this great desire to keep it, but I caught up with the woman and gave it back to her.

Now I am having to work late and having a massive craving, far greater then I ever had when I first quit

YABVU! You've done brilliantly. Don't blame not smoking for getting tubby, blame your willpower for not being strong enough to stretch to keeping your hands out of the biscuit barrel!

Yeah what MoFo said

And if smoking keeps you slim, why are there so many overweight smokers?

<lights a fag>

The reason you gave up hasn't changed though has it? You still want to set a good example to your daughters, and as a bonus still be around to set an example.

You're doing really well- I can't wait to be 3 years a non smoker. Congratulations smile

After a 3 year break, the first one will taste real good.

YANBU! All things in moderation! But do it outside. Not in the house.

My friends gave up the habit a year ago and both moan that they dont feel any fitter but, yoiu have done so well, dont give up!! goes to the off for ten bennys

Gah - catsbum my (feline) arse.

I have the poutiest lips out there. But OP - as you will. Smoke or don't, please do (or don't) - I do - you've done three years probably best to lay off it now.

Really (you're a better woman than me).

BUT, but, but - I am really, really enjoying my current fag.

& happy I live in a house where I can smoke without having to fuck off outside when I do.

Sorry, that wasn't very helpful.

spiderslegs Fri 07-Oct-11 01:23:49

Just nipped my libretarian arse - DO AS YOU WILL.

Well, the fag you smoke when you become an ex-ex-smoker is a wondrous event. It feels fatter than you remember, and nestles between your fingers like a long-missed lover. It smells divine. It tastes far more intriguing than you recall ... and it catches your throat, but you decide not to notice that. You get high on it!

It's amazing.

But it ain't worth it.

spiderslegs Fri 07-Oct-11 01:39:16

Ahh - Garlic - you almost made me want to give up then to experience that.

It sounds very...sensual.

garlicScaresVampires Fri 07-Oct-11 01:42:29


It is! I've enjoyed three cigarettes like that. Just the three (caved three times; still smoking) - because that one's the trap. After that, they get ever so slightly less glorious, one by one, until they're just burning your health and your money without you even noticing them much sad

Devious bastards.

I am a year into non smoking and I am so stressed at the moment it is unreal. I am also much more then my recommended weight even though a cure for my illness is apparently weight loss it has nothing wrote down that it can help hmm I have tried in the past and got worse

I quit as I was told that it will help me headaches, well it never. Then the GP said it would help me healing after surgery, Well it has been 13 weeks and I am still not back on my fight. When I was smoking it took me 4 days to be back on my feet hmm, Then it is it will help my teeth I dont know the difference apart from eating much more sugary stuff now .

I am tempted to buy some cigarettes on my Grocery order for tomorrow.

I had to get 3 different GP's to agree to me using Champix with my past medical history and my brain disorder.

What I would not give to have a smoke in the freezing cold.

I have to admit I was a terrible non-smoker. I put up a good act, according to friends, but I was bad-tempered and narky the whole time. Even after nine months (my longest), I was still fighting off a craving every ten minutes and, while I felt healthier, gained weight and had more colds, aches & pains and so on. I would run after smokers to walk behind and smell their smoke!

There are a thousand and one reasons why I shouldn't smoke but, really? I'm addicted. I'll die sooner, but at least I won't have spent my life longing for something I deny myself.

spiders, you must come round mine and contribute to my indoor smog wink

madhattershouse Fri 07-Oct-11 02:21:53

I went 3 years without. The day after I split up with my boyfriend, who was the main reason I gave up, I lit up again. 2 days later I was back to 20 per day! They are soooo more-ish though blush
