Pre Respond to your own SOS

Recommended Posts

Dear Linda (lml), 

 

Hugs to you. Breathe deeply and meditate. Find that place in you that knows how precious life is and how much more you enjoy it without nicotine taking so much of your time and attention. Nicotine and smoking does nothing good for you - but it will lie to you. You know the lies.

 

Breathe deeply, meditate and find that place - you know how now that you are smokefree. Every time you do this, you get stronger and learn some new tidbit of gold about yourself.  Believe in yourself and that this too shall pass. 

 

Love...yourself

Dear Grace,

 

Really? You are actually considering going down that road again? What? Is life not working out just how you planned, Grace? Are you feeling like a not-so-special little snowflake? Awww... That's too bad. :rolleyes:  Sack up, girl! Quit being a pu$$y! Smoking is bullshit. 

 

Keep it together for f's sake!

 

With (tough) Love,

 

Grace

 

 

Haha Just reading my own post to myself. Made me smile...that attitude has carried me through almost 16 months now. Smoking is bs and for pu$$ies. No excuses. Just don't smoke. :)

This thread has saved quits. When I see an SOS the first thing that I do is check this thread for a post from the person needing help so that I can show them their own words. 

I encourage everyone to write a post here!

Are ya farken kiddin me! You got through Christmas Eve to New Years Day without havin a flippin fag. If ya were gunna turf ya quit and were trying to splain it that time was it, but nah ya grit ya teeth an kept on keepin in then ya dumb mole, so why should now be any different. Ffs get a grip. Besides if ya do light up the kid won't let them play "am I Eva gunna see ya face again" as they haul ya coffin outta the church.

 

Edit: OK dipshit, having a smoke is not gunna give you back ya Vegemite, for starters they don't taste anything alike, secondly you don't like the smokes and ya frickin love Vegemite so there is no comparison... Its for 3 weeks, maybe a bit longer... Suck it up princess cos you can do this. Right... No smoking...got it cos the Vegemite angels will smite you if you do and Vegemite will taste like sh¡t for ever and a day if you do.

 

Edit: The Kid's (12) response a few weeks ago when I was worried my Vegemite deprivation would make the nicodemon more powerful and I might be in serious danger of tossing my quit... What does smoking have to do with Vegemite? That's not even logical mum that just stupid? I call Bullshit. Just go away and have a good hard think about how silly and immature you are being. That is so stupid, "I really want vegemite and I can't have it and I'm really worried because of this I'll have a smoke". Go put ya big girl pants on ya sooky sooky la la, you need a time out mum until you can be normal again."  Outta the mouths of babes!

 

Edit: Are you insane, you can control if you smoke or not, only you control that not anyone else, not a doctor, or a blood test, or a reading on a monitor... you control that, its the one thing you do control and you want to give that up, for what 30 seconds of aah and that's it... that one first drag, don't be a dickhead.

 

Just had to put this here so it was on the first page that opens... I have been procrastinating for 4 hours about starting to sew my daughters costume because I am scarred the sewing machine will make me want to smoke... so self... DON'T BE A D1CK.... smoking will not make the fabric do what you want.... smoking is not a reward for finishing that section, even if it was kinda tricky ... smoking is not a reward for anything.... if you are a good girl and finish a section and really need a reward you can pop in and play some games.... there will be no smokin, there will be no flippin trips to 7 eleven in the middle of the night... its not frickin happenin dipshit.... you with the program yet??... right if for some frucked up reason you go from thinkin about a smoke to wanting a smoke or needing one you will enact the disaster plan....Step 1, read this frickin post.... Step 2, post another frickin NOPE, read this again.... Step 3, post a frickin SOS.... Step 4, interact with those responding to the SOS.... Step 4, PM the emergency contact who is in a time zone that is awake.... Step 5, let your emergency contact call you to talk your arse down from the ledge you have stupidly put it on..... ALL of those steps MUST be completed before you will toss this quit and you WILL NOT TOSS THIS QUIT because lets face facts you wont need to go past step 4.... you have this, this is the sticky quit and you are a non-smoker, you do not smoke, you do not need it, you definately do not want it, it gives you nothing.

So, somehow you feel like you don't care anymore. Maybe it's the depression, anxiety, or just some sh☆tty situation. Let me tell you this: you do care and you definitely give a lot about it. You used to think you didn't care, because it was easier and less vulnerable. Back then, it was your only way to survive. But now things are different, you have changed. Be honest with yourself and listen to the soft voices. They want to be heard. They will help you continue this journey. X

If I post an SOS I need to remind myself of how I feel right now. I'm desperate to make my next quit stick and that won't happen if I give in every time things get tough. 

 

If I smoke I will keep taking myself back to square one which is where I am now. If I ask for help and cling on whenever I feel shaky I will keep moving forward. 

 

Everyone else here is fighting for their quits and I have to start fighting for mine. I want to quit while I can and not be lying in a hospital bed sobbing because I kept on smoking.

REMEMBER WHY YOU ARE DOING THIS . . . QUITTING !!!

IF YOU HAVE A CIG, FAG, TAB, SMOKE YOU'LL BE BACK IN THIS SAME PLACE TOMORROW.. GUARANTEED & BELIEVE ME YOU WILL!

DO IT FOR YOUR KIDS.

IT WILL BE HARD    YOU KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE HARD AT TIMES BUT YOU CAN, REPEAT CAN QUIT & WILL DO IT NOW... THIS TIME ROUND.

IT IS ALL TEMPORARY AND DOESN'T LAST LONG . . ITS YOUR TURN NOW.

SMOKING IS A VISCIOUS CIRCLE & WILL BE FOREVER UNTIL YOU DIE . . UNLESS YOU DO IT NOW . .  ANYWAY ITS YOUR TURN NOW.

YOU ONLY HAVE TO DO IT ONCE . . . THEN ITS GONE, THAT'S IT . . DONE! . . ITS YOUR TURN NOW AND OH . .

YOU'VE QIUT

Oh, Rozuki.....you are stronger than this....you know it!!! With all you have been through in this life you are not going to let a bunch of poison sticks get to  you! Think about how great it has been to no longer stink, worry about do you have enough to get through the night, the money you are saving, the fact that not smoking means your COPD will not get worse (according to your pulmonologist), the fact that your arteries will get better (according  to your cardiologist) , that you never want to go through another bypass operation or stent procedure!!!! So what if you are carrying around some extra pounds for awhile..... you will eventually lose them.....by walking more, which you now can do since you quit!!!

About us

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.
