Hello and what great timing for a new thread....reasons for not smoking today are: all of yesterday ...well you would have to go through that again, you would spend a good hour away from dd, scheming and plotting and getting the weed to smoke and then 2 mins smoking the fag and the rest of the day absoullty gutted that youdd had one...
Look at your dd and youll know your making the right decision

I found that cups of tea really helped to start with!!
Good Luck for today

MLL and 2A... post if you need to.

We all really want to help-lots of us have been through this within the past year so its still fresh in our minds-most of us would be lying if we said we didnt crave a fag at least once a day but before long you will have forgotten about them for the majority of your day.Thats when you start punching the air every time you realise you no longer smoke-its a fantastic feeling I sill get a few times a day and I have only stopped for 2 and 1/2 monhs!
Let us know how you are feeling today girls.

Well done 2A - i used patches when i first gave up, i think it helped psyhcologically, then after four weeks, i started to forget to put them on, and realised i really didn't need them.
You are in for a rough ride, lots of ups and downs but you sound really positive at the moment, so hold that thought!
MML how are you coping today?

LOL, mll... tomorrow's a new day.

It's kind of funny, I never seem to say the right thing for you, so can imagine you thinking 'what planet is that sodding bloke on ?'

Hope the balance of posts / concern is in my favour though, even if I wind you up or get it wrong sometimes.

DD's are 2.5 and 4 MLL my wee honeys....

I'm a bedroom designer hun, have appointments to attend to in the evenings with potential clients.

hun u are doing soooo wel and do u know I really think ur gonna do it...

MLL I wasn't gonna say this but u had the courage to so I will I had one yesterday too at client my appointment but was fine after that I know I shoulda just chucked a gum in my gob but had already had the max dose allowed.

but one compared to 40/50/30 as long as obviously we don't do it again I thinks we should be fine.... but have to admit which made me happy that fag I had last night made me feel like balking and I burnt ma nose again and eye lol...

If u want to email me hun my addy is

TwoAngels Wed 18-May-05 09:11:19

so sorry for my over use of hun it's habit hahahahahaha

hub2dee Wed 18-May-05 09:17:06

2A !!! sneaky !!!


I agree your reduction is fab. You've proved yourself you can do it.

Better that you're honest too.

However, even one does kick off the addiction level again, making it harder rather than easier....

Stay on track.

nothing to do with fags - just like to say i like yous pseudonym, mummylonglegs!

and my man is currently off the fags too - his 3rd or 4th attempt.
He used Zyban for 2 months, and is seeing a 'tabacologue' (french 'tobacco doctor'!)
so we're really hoping it will work this time.
He's eating loads of cream buns though,and has gained a bit of weight. But much preferable to a smoke-filled kitchen at 7.30am (when he had his 1st fag before breakfast! ugh!)

MML-where do you call South Central London? I'm in Plumstead-very "Saaaarth" but its all we could afford? Are we close?
