Its been a hell of week

But i survived

 

Nicotine gums are  like my new best friend

 

I could not have done without it

 

Thanks to all the people who have supported me

The evening hyper mental times aside i am feeling great :)

 

One week over and the pull of the brain for a cigarette is still strong

 

I really thought all the cravings would go away after a week .

 

It could be again one of these issues ,

 

H.A.L.T. (Hungry,Angry,Lonely,Tired)

 

I am feeling lonely tired and therefore angry too .

 

I am also trying to avoid  too much computer usage at night times

 

Thanks for all the support

I think being out of focus is a major part of everyday life .

 

You know , times when you are not able to focus on anything specific .

 

I always have this feeling that when you smoke it puts you back on focus quickly .

 

Maybe i should try some meditation techniques , in that way if i do not have anything specific to focus on , at least i can focus on my breathing part .

 

One more important point added , do not try to overcome the everyday out of focus issues with smoking .

 

9th successful day without smoking .

 

Sometimes the inability to focus is making me thinking about smoking again .

 

But i am not going to smoke .

@jillar  ,

 

Found an awesome article online

 

I think everyone trying to quit should read this .

 

Focusing on the Important Stuff in an Age of Distraction

In a world saturated with social media and unlimited interruptions, many of us struggle to focus on what’s in front of us. With so many voices vying for attention, it’s hard to know what’s worth our time

What's on your gratitude list for today then? 

 

Mine's are;

1. My family. Had a lovely Sunday lunch and it's great fun catching up with everyone.

2. My comfortable bed. I got a nice lie in this morning and I just love my bed so much. Ok I admit it, I also got a wee siesta after lunch 😴

3. Time alone. My hubby has been out since 3pm at the football and it's nice having the house to myself for a few hours. He 'll be home soon talking nonsense no doubt 😂 

 

I really enjoyed thinking about my gratitude list for today. It might be tricky doing it every day or lots of repeats. But it's nice thinking about positive stuff, so thanks for that 😊

Your craves and other negative effects will diminish when off nicotine all together.  So what works for you with the gum, but realized the effects can't quit until the gum quit.

Good job

@bakon

 

I am trying to conquer the emptiness in the evening these days .From 6 to 9:30 or 10 , i am so out of focused , tired , dull and exhausted .

 

So i am trying to figure out ways to stay fresh somehow during the evenings

@StewieTech ,

 

Thanks for the reply ...

 

 

Here is the answer , lol

 

Metallica - No Leaf Clover , i reversed the text in a little application , lol

 

[Verse 1]
And it feels right this time
On this crash course with the big time
Pay no mind to the distant thunder
New day fills his head with wonder, boy

Says it feels right this time
Turned it around and found the right line
Good day to be alive, Sir
Good day to be alive, he said

[Chorus]
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just the freight train coming your way

[Verse 2]
Doesn't it feel right like this
All the pieces fall to his wish
Sucker for that quick reward boy
Sucker for that quick reward they said

[Chorus]
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just the freight train coming your way
It's coming your way
It's coming your way


[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just a freight train coming your way
Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel
Is just the freight train coming your way

Yeah i used a website to unreverse the text, jokes on you. 😛

 

I...i dont know the meaning behind that without context.

 

"freight train coming your way"? What are you up to? You better be not thinking about doing something naughty!

 

Must be the gums really. What dosage are you on? I think you should give up on the gums now...sorry im not trying to be an asshole but you´ve been feeding artificial nicotine for 9 days now. Let them go and endure a little discort. Then it gets better.

@StewieTech ,

 

I just liked this two lines of the song to be honest , lol

 

Good day to be alive, Sir
Good day to be alive, he said

 

Nowadays eating less than 5 gums daily .

 

I do not need gums in the morning

I do not need it at noon time

 

But in the evenings after 6 .

I cannot stay away from the smoking cravings without it

Yes its always good to be alive. I love being alive, its my favorite thing ever.

 

You keep diminishing those gums and soon you will be totally free of nicotine. When do you plan to give up the nicotine for good?

 

Peace :)
