First time visitor to week 4.

At this high altitude I am in danger of a nose bleed.

Great going @Not Another Puff ! Such a great feeling to get a room upgrade isn’t it.  What’s your favourite thing in your new room?

Haven't had a chance to look at the forum much recently but great to be back and seeing the posts of how well everybody is doing.  Well done @Not Another Puff, enjoy the new room, don't get too settled you'll be moving up again soon.

@Enough42 my favourite thing about this room, is this is a PB having never got this far before.

Having slipped up on July 14th and having to go back to week 1 was a surprisingly big wake up call.

I have had some really good advice from people on here and have in my wallet my reasons for giving up smoking, have timed the length and frequency of my cravings, short and at most 2 a day. It has been great to share and talk with you guys, as I have always tried to do it on my own before.

I am all about the triggers, I am dismantling these hurdles, one trigger at the time.

Since quitting on June 26th, it took over a month of constantly waiting for myself to fail, as I have so many times in the past, to even get to the stage where I think I might possibly/actually do this.

Not Another Puff over and out.

With that mindset, @Not Another Puff , you are seriously and without any doubt heading straight for the Penthouse. Time to get the painting overalls on I see, as there's a palatial suite to be decorated.... well done that man!!!  007 :foundbeer:

Just brilliant @Not Another Puff. You’ve got this sorted.  Keep your strong march to freedom heading all the way to the p/h. You won’t believe how liberating it feels the further in you get.

Keep the praise coming as I actually deserve it this time. I am not cheating or using NRT.

Am living my life normally and facing down my triggers.

I have saved £494.50 cup of TEA.

I do romanticise smoking, which is the junky voice in my head which is so dangerous.

I constantly remind myself how fragile my not smoking is, which is what keeps me off  those beautiful, sexy tabs.

My name is Not Another Puff and I am a non smoker.

Lucky my sleep patterns are not still shot, awake at 4am.

Last post in week 4 as I have to move on tomorrow.

I was the same @Not Another Puff often awake at 3 or 4am.  Don’t beat yourself up about it though, just accept it and if you can, take advantage of having extra hours to do stuff!! It doesn’t last too long and you’ll be back to your normal slumber pattern before you know it.  Then you’ll be like, why didn’t I do x, y and z when I had all of those extra hours?! See you shortly in the next room then!
