S-s-s-s-s-s-mokin'!!!!!!
« on: October 15, 2018, 09:29:49 am »
I am as surprised as anyone to be free falling into month 4 with a clean, no NRT and not even a cheeky social 1 with a beer when no one is looking cigarette since July 14th.

Dead proud of you  008
And success depends on this; keeping going. Nothing much else,just keep going.Time eventually takes care of the cravings until they utterly cease to exist,hard to believe but true. Your job, NAP is to keep your head down,keep walking,and just as if you were climbing a very long path up a mountain,if you keep going you will find yourself there at the summit and before you know it, well done to you!!

Cheers everyone.

I do not think I have cracked this no smoking thing yet, as I have just had a week end with disrupted sleep, cigarette cravings and now a new one numb finger tips.

I did overcome a new trigger, I coach my son's under 14 rugby team, they were beaten quite heavily in the pouring rain on Sunday morning and I would normally have chain smoked my way through the match, but dodged that bullet.

Each one of these events is a 'victory' some small,some huge,and they are worth their weight in gold,truly  :nobeer:
We all have to confront those times, those days,those events where we know damned well that stinking reckless smoker me would want to smoke. But like a stack of dominoes,if you are dogged and determined,these obstacles will tumble,one after another and that is the road you are now on-fantastic!!!! ;D

Well done @Not Another Puff.  I find summer the hardest to get through and you have got past that now, no more huddling in a smoking shelter  :foundbeer:
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...........

@Max414 is right- every time you get through one of those trigger-events your arsenal grows stronger  :ninja: :ninja: :ninja: . Eventually (honestly!) you only encounter those moments very, very rarely and when you do, it's less a crave than a sort of ghost of a crave (if that makes sense).  You're doing mightily well.  :)

I was heavily beaten by rain and wind on Sunday morning. I only thought of getting in and having a cup of tea.
