Still trying to give up smoking and its been a hard and on/off struggle .I know i am essentially being crap and could really do with a bollocking ( something i respond well to). So ladies please come and vent your spleen here and tell me what a useless excuse for a grown up i am PLEASE grin

bumpsoon, we lost our thread. Maybe we need to get it back again. (seeing as I have been equally crap). Do you want me to bollock you. I will but I think it may be slightly hypocritical grin

YABU your an adult, you cant expect your friends and family to take responsibility for stopping you from damaging your health, give your self a kick up the ARSE

you're not giving up anything; you're gaining fresh air, health and wealth. Silly cow.

Will that do? grin

VinegarTits Mon 20-Jul-09 09:44:23

How was that for a bollocking? i have more if you can take it?

yama Mon 20-Jul-09 09:45:23

With regards to smoking - the only bollocking that works is a self-bollocking.

Go on, you know you want to (bollock that is, not smoke).

vinegar tits, although not the op, you scared me a little bit there grin I will walk away with my tail between my legs.

bumpsoon Mon 20-Jul-09 09:46:20

due to increasing bump im finding it difficult to kick myself up arse .You are of course completely right ,it isnt their responsibility BUT a bit of supportive tutting /sighing/rolling of eyes even would be good smile
zookeeper silly cow is that the best you can do ? I know its early but surely you can do a bit better

I think you can only successfully give up smoking when your subconscious has also got fed up with the smelly, expensive and unhealthy habit. In the meantime, consider yourself rather feebly bollocked.

bumpsoon Mon 20-Jul-09 09:50:54

OOOO much better ,keep it coming please ,i am going to re-read all this before bed tonight to help me get my smoke addled brain into the right frame ,so i can FINALLY stop tomorrow

bumpsoon Mon 20-Jul-09 09:52:14

Hi ellipac grin,got your patches ready ?

Thandeka Mon 20-Jul-09 09:53:08

Are you pregnant?
And smoking?

Biggest SIDS risk is smoking (I think smoking in pregnancy increases risk slightly- but smoking after birth in the house increases risk massively).

VinegarTits Mon 20-Jul-09 09:55:09

Oh stop being such a big fucking wussy, supportive tutting/sighing/rolling of the eyes my ares, that's not going to help you, you smoke because your WEAK and PATHETIC, your SELFISH and IGNORANT, and worst of all, your subjecting your tiny unborn child to your WEAK, PATHETIC, SELFISH IGNORANCE

Hows that?

elliepac Mon 20-Jul-09 09:56:17

Patches, check. Gum, check. Told DH to punch me before he lets me have a cigarette and informed him of danger zone, check. Willpower, bollocks, knew i was missing something.

Errrrrrrr...
How are you with answering whether any of these have any effect...
Smoking takes an average of ten years off your life?
Half of all smokers die before they're 65?
I know 3 smokers in their early 50s with breast cancer?
It costs a fortune?
I had bronchitis and ear infections caused by my dad's smoking every year until I left home?
Your kids are more likely to start smoking if you do?

Is any of that horrible enough? (I tried really hard!)
Good luck!

Remember physical addiction to nicotine lasts only 2 weeks - after that it's just psychological addiction.

vinegar thats exellent ,top marks .I dont smoke in the house at all ,cant stand the smell and cant smoke them neat either as i cant stand the taste . So basically im wasting money and damaging my unborn child for something i dont essentially like ,oh and being a big fucking wuss to boot

elliepac Mon 20-Jul-09 09:59:37

Wow, VinegarTits, remind me never to get on the wrong side of you. Me and bumpsoon started a giving up smoking thread not so long back but were miserable failures so am taking the bollocking as well. I now feel WEAK, PATHETIC, SELFISH and IGNORANT grin

bumpsoon Mon 20-Jul-09 10:01:05

Ellipac are you going to try to tomorrow ? if so you can cat me anytime you get a craving wink, i reckon sending an email lasts about the same amount of time as a craving

OH FFS - how old are you??? Seriously woman, grow up. It's not impressive or cool to smoke. You're perilously close to looking like Becky of Corrie, does she look like a role model, does she??? (I asked you a question...)

Sod the damage to your lungs, what about the wrinkles?? You can slap all the moisturiser you can find on your face, you're still going to look like an old hag if you don't quit.

smelling bad, having shit skin and a wheezing like an old coal miner is not sexy - this is your choice, don't pretend otherwise and don't say we didn't warn you.

Now pull yourself together, we are all very disappointed in you !!!


will that do?

bumpsoon Mon 20-Jul-09 10:01:59

fortyplus ,am well aware of health issues ,as im a nurse blush ,so cant claim ignorance

I don't think a bollocking would do any good. You are already feeling guilty about smoking.

Is there an NHS smoking cessation group in your area? It might be worth asking your midwife what help is available.
