I wish you had knew me when I had a dog earred rollup dangling from my lips AT ALL TIMES. And spend every 23rd minute saying to the kids, yeah in a minute, im just going for a fag.
Really, honestly. Or saw me out with my torch at 3am looking for a dry dogend after it had been pissing down all night...
It is doable.
A fag, my dear, will not make your X into prince charming, nor will it do the dishes or put the wshing away, it wont take the solicitors letter away and it wont make your life ANY BETTER.
That once first drag WILL feel good and then 1o minutes later, not only will you want ANOTHER FAG , you will be depressed becasue you have failed again.
No more. Get it in your head, no more fags. You HAVE DONE IT BEFORE.

charliecat Thu 18-May-06 11:35:27

and remember what got you smoking again, just one little fag. thats why you cant have 1 little fag.
Because theres no such thing.

charliecat Thu 18-May-06 11:38:52

See this is why theres no a no smoking thread. I just end up ranting to myself<snort>

charliecat Thu 18-May-06 11:42:47

And to quote you "I cant keep giving up"
Correct, let this be the last time you put yourself through this shit and never do it again.

Hi, I gave up just over a year ago. Just wanted to say you're doing really well and don't give up!! It gets easier after 3 days.

Are you going cold turkey?

I used patches so at least they took the edge off the cravings. Drinking water and sucking minty sweets is meant to help. I just drank loads of tea and coke and ate chocolate!
The first day is the worst and you've got through that.

charliecat Fri 19-May-06 19:33:07

Hello hello hello, theres no point in ging and having some for the weekend rickman, ok, maybe some wine, or some coke, but not the fags.
Treat yourself to a glass of either at the end of the day.
You wont...hopefully wake up rooting for the wine/coke. But the fags are evil, and you will want one the next day. Its the law of addiction.
Hope your ok xxxxxxxx

Charlie-still plugging away eh? HIYA HONEY!!!!
Nice to see you never give up!
Am still fag free for a year and two months now-only have the VERY rare one that I hate the taste of and then don't bother me arse with for another month or two.
Still the BEST thing I have ever done!!

How are you doing on ebay?
Check me out on 2004jonquil-I'm flying on the second hand clothes front!
Haven't read this thread but how is Kleist??

Dropinthe Sat 27-May-06 15:02:52

i stopped smoking about 7 weeks ago now (ive lost count, ive forgotten all about 'trying to give up' cos ive now given up )

still waiting to see the benefits (glowing skin, lots of energy, wads of cash) but my patience is better than it was 6 weeks ago

good luck rickman

Dropinthe Sat 27-May-06 15:48:26

I have only started to get better looking skin after a year and 2 months! Sorry-don't want to put the scuppers on it but it takes a long time for your body to get rid of the shit all those years of smoking has gunked you up with!
7 weeks is a GREAT achievement though!!
