Day 6 mixed emotions
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:56:31 pm »
Hi guys,

I'm on day 6 and today I have very mixed emotions, feeling proud that I still have not gave in! Stressed because I want to give in! And stressed because things are not going my way!

I've been reading through some posts and reading other people's thoughts have made me realise that I'm not on my own.

I just tell myself not to give in, lollipops are helping my cravings

Well done on Day 6. It will be a whole week tomorrow so hope you're planning a treat.

You're definitely not on your own, we've all been there and it does get easier.

Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Congrats Becca,on seizing back control of your life from tobacco!  :hug:


This is tough,but we are tougher and you are tougher-to start with it really is a case of gritting your teeth and battling through the hours.Lollipops are a fine idea  :nobeer: :nobeer:  I consumed huge amounts of;
sugar free gum
midget gems
lollipops
carrots
apples
and crisps!


None of which are good fo you but nowhere as bad as inhaling poisonous smoke!
Please HANG IN THERE X

Well done on getting to day 6 @Beccalouise85
Keep doing what you are doing - read, read, read and then read some more; and if you need to use every lollipop in the world to get through it then so be it.  It does get easier and you will come out the other side a strong, confident no smoker.

It is a bit like that. I think this is why my local chemist (which is run by two old ladies who know everybody's business) sell sugar free whistle lollipop doo dads. So you can give it a suck and then a blow and play a little tune by moving the slider thing up and down.

It gets better.

Atta girl @Beccalouise85.  Hang in there and just keep going. Have lollipops, mints, chewing gum, crisps, fruit, whatever you need to have to avoid shoving a chemical ridden bit of weed into your mouth.  Yep, no-one said it would be easy,  it isn’t. You’re an addict, like the rest of us and beating the addiction is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.  But I’m doing it.  One second, one minute, one hour, one day at a time. You can do it too.  I know you can.

@Beccalouise85 , you can wake up tomorrow and give yourself an ENORMOUS pat on the back because you'll have been free of the Demon Nic for ONE WHOLE WEEK!! :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

Honestly, as the others have said, whilst that first week crawls by, time soon starts to speed up. Before you know it, you'll be looking back at where you're at now and you won't believe how far you've come. You're amazing and never forget it. All you need to do now is to decide how to reward yourself.  :hug: :hug:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

Well done on 6 days @Beccalouise85 a week tomorrow, thats fab. Those first few weeks are really stressful, just keep reminding yourself that smoking won't alleviate the stress and in fact would make it worse.  006

Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........
