Day 5 -again
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:16:49 pm »
Hi everyone,

Hope you are all ok and looking forward to some snow!

I’m still quit which is great but I’ve  felt rubbish  today, low and generally angry. I just got angry at my partner over an egg. Basically I’m being a nob lots at the moment. I think some of the physical symptoms are weakening but need to get myself mentally sorted out now.

I’ve been down to London today and was pretty tempted by the smoking masses outside Euston  but had a bottle of water and sulked instead.

Anyway, I’ve got a meeting with the quit smoking adviser sat AM so at the moment I’m just telling myself I need to get to that and somehow plod through this week.

Nick

 ;D  I did LOADS of sulking!

Good to see you're still trucking, just keep putting one foot in front of the other and make your way slowly but surely to that 1st week milestone.  Hopefully Saturday's appointment will help and give you some tools to fight this battle with, just having someone physically there to talk to about it and to check in with will be helpful, quite apart from any assistance by way of lozenges, patches, spray or whatever.

Thanks Kat! Sulking is the best. Sulking and eating biscuits.

Well done on Day 5 and surviving a day in London!  I commute to London every day and remember sulking a little bit seeing everybody "enjoying" their cigarette outside the station.  Now I'm so relieved not to be one of them any more. 
Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Love the egg story @Nick_82;D Any chance of more info? Was the egg too hard boiled? Too runny?  :)

Seriously, you're doing brilliantly and I'm sure your partner will understand (and is extremely proud of your mighty achievement  :hug: :hug:).

Anyway, you can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs!!  ;)

Thanks Sally and Skiddaw.

The egg was one involved in my dinner, Mexican eggs and chips. My lovely partner loves that meal and had made it. Basically the eggs to veg ratio was all wrong, WAY too much egg and too little tomato. I managed to bite my tounge (I know I’m a hero) but I was very angry about it inside.

For the record this would never normally bother me, it’s just I’m feeling totally irrational at the moment and was looking for some excuse to vent. But I managed to keep it together.

Hope everyone is doing ok!

Never mind @Nick_82 , if it's any consolation I threw a complete melt-down about a leaf Mr S had inadvertently brought into the house on his shoe at a similar stage of my quit. He's been calling me Mrs Obsessive Compulsive Leaf Disorder ever since.  :-[

Sorry last msg was meant for KK! -

Skiddaw, one leaf, that made me laugh. It’s so bad how nicotine makes us mad. I’m so glad I’m on my way to being normal again. Well as normal as I ever was before smoking  :D

Thanks for the support guys!
