1 pointHello, So far, so good! By the way I have not yet fallen into temptation, why did I type 'yet" hmmmm - dislike! re-type, I have not fallen into temptation. However, my thoughts are constantly on smoking, which isn't completely abnormal as I have realised they always were, I never really smoked in the day due to the nature of my job, once home my daughter needs me so I would usually have to wait until the evening anyway, by which time it would feel like taking off a very tight, uncomfortable shoe and pure relief when I could smoke (Allen Carr's analogy). Therefore, I would be looking forward to something all day, and now I'm not, but I am ok with it thanks to this fantastic site, I am reading on here everyday reminding myself why I am now a non-smoker. I am not convinced I believe myself to be a non-smoker, wondering when it will be that a cave in, I will keep listening to the sensible part of me and still take one day at a time as it is early days. Already seen some benefits such as spending more time with my daughter, feel cleaner, skin has improved already I'm sure of it and I am coping ok, even my husband popping outside every 20mins for a smoke isn't affecting me too much. I know we are supposed to carry our lives on as normal but for the time being I don't wish to be tempted by evenings out which I know will include wine consumption for me so have decided on the gym tomorrow night and I will be designated driver to a sausage and beer festival on Sunday. Off to bed, feeling productive! :)
1 pointI would find that really hard, dropping the thing you always looked forward to. Can you replace it with something? A walk, a book an anything that you can look forward to? You rock :)
QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact. This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits. We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking. Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
