Reception and Waiting Room / Are you thinking of quitting?
« Last post by Lostie on February 18, 2019, 10:26:25 am »
The forum has been very quiet lately and it looks like we haven't had any new members since last November.
Are you one of those that quit over Christmas are maybe in the New Year? Just thinking about quitting?  Don't be shy and come and join up or make a post just to let us know we aren't alone.
You will get lots of support on here so make the leap, we don't bite :D

I started a new job as a delivery driver today, when I got to my first address there was a not on the door saying "Dear Delivery Man. We're out please hide in the garage" well that was 8 hours ago and still nobody has found me.

@Not Another Puff I can't tell you when but it will and you probably won't notice it until you're past it and you realise that you are completely free of it. Then you'll have a eureka moment and realise it's all over. But blummin well done for kicking it in the pants on that journey.

I do always say HALT; am I hungry, angry, lonely or tired. For me those cravings were often about being frustrated and angry and needing to learn how to manage that. Angry is still the one I've not quite mastered; I don't know how to dissipate angry and be one of those zen people.

@Not Another Puff , if it is any consolation to you, I had a mega-crave at a similar stage in my quit (it was at the wedding of one of my best friends, when the groom, best man and bride's son all lit up after the service). I had to lock myself in the bog until it had passed. I'd not had a craving like that for a fair old time and it right knocked me for six.

The important (only) thing is that you didn't give in. I didn't either, and I can tell you that I never did experience another crave like that. So pleased and chuffed for you...  :hug: :hug: 007 007 :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :vader:

I remember those 'just one won't hurt' thoughts, then 'just while I'm out drinking with smokers followed by 'just while I'm out drinking then finally 'I can just smoke at weekends'.  I have failed two good quits (26 and 7 months!)  so can pretty much guarantee it doesn't stop at one.  It is very hard so I totally understand how you feel but it's really best to avoid being near people smoking.  My Mum and son both smoke and while I don't avoid either of them I won't stand outside with them while they smoke because I know I would be tempted, more so if I have had a drink (which is most weekends for me).

You did so well to not smoke this time, before you know it the cravings will stop and it'll all feel worth it.  :hug:

Hey, 7 months.

A massive wobble yesterday while out with smoking work colleagues, craving was so bad I had to travel home on my own from Cowes to London. I am not entirely sure why I did not have a tab, it would have been only one, I deserve it and no one would have known.

Oh god when does this ever end, enough already.
