Stepping into week 2 :)
« on: March 01, 2017, 08:56:06 am »
Hi Folks
Well here I am, it's been a long while since I got this far!
I am actually feeling ok too, I have the odd moment but not enough to make me reach for a ciggie which was always my downfall previously
I am having a lot of weird dreams though because I am using patches but I daren't not use them through the night as I think I will struggle in the mornings.
I don't know why but this time things feel different, I truly think I am going to crack it.
My husband is still smoking too but it doesn't bother me though he does have to spray by the back door and not approach me for at least 5 minutes  :ninja:
So all in all things are going quite well.

Week 2 is an amazing place to be in.  Youve done the hard work now so all you have to do is maintain your resolve. 

Why would you want to stand by the back door in the cold, windy, drizzley, foggy, snowy weather with your husband.  And that stale smell.  Argh...   002 002 002 002

You keep doing what you are doing.  Well done
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Cracking stuff!!! Tell hubbie to get on here too and we will persuade him that smoking is not just a mug's game,it is actually killing him.
Any Doctor will tell you that quitting smoking is THE single best act you can do for your health .
We are right with you!!!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

Brilliant.  I am also on patches but couldn't bear the weird dreams.   First thing in the morning was my big struggle also  so bought and now use a nicotine spray.  It really does help and gets one through the initial cravings.  Good luck x

@Punjabiprincess has got me started and I would say that this calls for more dancing:

You're a total star our @Alidye69 and no mistake!  ;D 008 :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

Once that switch in your brain clicks over to the 'off' position there's no going back (and I think that's what has happened to you). May your Week 2 be a splendid and easy one and may you celebrate your amazing success in a suitable fashion. Well done!  :hug: :hug: :hug:
