Title: Ready for week 2...
Post by: Andy1983 on January 06, 2019, 03:27:43 pm
Hi everyone, I am starting week 2 of my quit attempt tomorrow...

As a social smoker it is not uncommon for me to go a week or so without a cigarette but I have almost always smoked at weekends - this weekend I didn't, despite going to a gig in a pub on Friday night which is the sort of environment I find it very hard to abstain in.  So, I'm pretty pleased with that!  I am also not drinking - had I had a beer, I know for sure I would've gone and bought cigarettes this weekend.

Would like to thank @Max414 , @Skiddaw and @Nicky40 for your help and encouragement so far!  I did almost cave in yesterday after getting lost on a hike in the dark (!)... so pleased I didn't as I know I would've spent today feeling totally rubbish and regretful like I always have done after smoking.

I reckon week 2 is going to be a bit easier overall.

Oh well done @Andy1983 !  ;D

I think you're right about Week 2. Just stay vigilant but you're doing all the right things. You should be extremely proud of yourself!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

Good man Andy we are proud of you sir !!!!
This is not an easy thing to do as you well know, but nothing that is worth doing is ever very easy.. Please brace yourself Andy and fight off the attacks that Nicdemon makes upon you because most assuredly he will try his best to force you to break your quit and we will not allow that to happen  004 ;D

Well done @Andy1983 it is hard work but that can be said about anything that's worth doing. I'm now 6 weeks in and able to go out and have a few drinks (but still avoid smokers). Eventually you will stop thinking about smoking altogether.

Thank you all for your support! 

I feel really confident about this week, and week 3 will be a big milestone for me as I've never gone longer than 2.5 weeks without a cigarette for the past 16 years (ouch).

I shall keep you updated!

@Andy1983  - well done you on your decision and determination so far.

I have to say that my first three weeks and the sixth week were probably the weeks I would have succumbed but for these guys.

You are amazing and I have no doubt we will be celebrating your admittance to your penthouse apartment. Just keep going; just keep going.   :foundbeer: :foundbeer:
