    Celebrating my first week without cigarettes !!

    @StewieTech Thanks for the reply , I am not using the forum much these days . Keeping the internet activity to a minimum I have loads of assignments to finish for the 5th semester distance education course , bit stressed out . So staying away from the PC too Have fun everyone
  2. @reciprocity , @notsmokinjo I am doing alright , some mood swings and i am trying to keep the PC usage to a minimal The only issues is when i run out of nicotine gums at night Thanks for the suggestions too I tried reading some children book at night , it was not that bad . Must get some books related to history , civilizations and religions .Those books are my favorite Old name is back too Thanks for all the reply
  3. @reciprocity Thanks for the reply 13 days and holding strong . I ran out of gums yesterday night , that is why the strange difficulty and craving . Woke up in the morning , went out and bought a pack of gums and ate one .Feels normal again Now that i think about yesterdays craving it was a bit weak compared to older ones . I think the cravings will get weaker and weaker as time passes . I almost gave up yesterday . Its so important to sit in a silent place when you have lots of cravings , another point learned
  4. @jillar I have no idea why every evening at the exact same time , between 7 and 9 , i have to go through hell I have no idea how i manage myself to get out of that urge to smoke . I got out of it again somehow , 12 days without smoking and i still do not know why i have so much cravings for a cigarette at these times . It must be the gums , but i chew gums to kill some boredom when i stare into the computer screen and forums . All these cravings leave if i give it enough time , and that time is not an hour or 2 . It takes at least 3 hours for me to feel better Anyway still continuously fighting addiction even after 12 days . Is this even normal ? I really thought it would go away after a week
  5. 11 days 9 hours and i still have not smoked a single cigarette . Today i had a very unusually strong urge to smoke in the evening but somehow managed to do a triple jump and avoided it . I am so proud of myself for avoiding that even though i was struggling a lot God , i know it will go away if you stay strong , sometimes you have to stay very very strong to avoid cigarettes That is all .

    @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

    @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 https://goinswriter.com/distraction/
  10. Thanks for the reply WeegieWoman , I was reading this right now , I hope it helps you too 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.

    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 . "You need to work to strengthen your 'focus muscle' and figure out what is distracting you "

    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
  13. @WeegieWoman , I will get the books from the second hand book store , there are plenty of it here . I want to read something that is written in my own language , lol Usually i get the English books from amazon.com I like religion and history related books , so i will try to get a few books like that Sitting alone and spending too much time doing nothing makes me a bit mental Yes , feeling awesome about getting past the 1 week mark Smoking kills , you simply have to keep that point in the mind , that is all @Joe7 Thanks
  14. 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 I believe the ability to think is blessed. If you can think about a situation, you can deal with it. The big struggle is to keep your head clear enough to think. - Richard Pryor
  15. @notsmokinjo , @Lilly , @reciprocity First of all , Thanks for all the support everyone . I week and 11 hours to be precise .There was a little error in the sig , sorry about that . More than one week over and i still have a bit of mental feeling the evenings . I feel a bit mental when i run out of my gums , lol I am not sure if it is smoke related or some other issues dealing with house related issues . I thought the strength of the cravings goes away after a week It is not there in the morning It is not there in the noon I still crave a lot for a smoke in the evenings But i am never buying cigarettes . The best thing to do is to stay away from the computers in the evening and try to do something else like reading a book I should buy some good books to read , i almost have no good books to read with me right now I love history related books , must buy a few books soon
