I want to cry. Half a day in and I feel awful. This is so hard.
so I feel great!
this actually does work.
carrying a bottle of water around and drinking that is another one i've noticed a lot of people doing.
'Get out of jail free' card
Woke up one day almost 2 years ago and just didn't want a cigarette
Not a helpful comment... :S You using any of the gums/patches/etc?
But in the last few months, my Dad has been diagnosed with cancer and my Mum has had a pair of aneurisms burst, followed swiftly by a stroke, so you'll forgive me if I think it's a good idea to quit.
will just make him angry and want to smoke a cigarette in order to calm himself a little.
so your 'warning' is very counter productive. in fact you're wishing death upon him.
i hate this website! i'm going to drownedinmusic.com!
i've only had a couple of bad moments so far. But I've tried before, and it is really difficult.
This time I most miss getting to go outside at work. i've yet to face a night in a pub or club. that's going to be really hard.
I used nicotine patches for about a month. The difficulty is 80% psychological, and even that's mainly just when you're having a pint - but it gets alot easier after even just a week. Go for it!
I done it this time last year. Patches are good. Ice water too. V good. I used patches for about a month but they were well too strong so I started cutting them in half. Top moneysaving tip: only buy the full strength ones then cut them to size rather than the slow downgrade of different nicotine content.
It was a piece of piss once I decided not to bother smoking any more. It's more effort to actually go to the bother of getting off your arse to go to the shop to buy fags, then there's whole process of lighting and smoking them, finding ashtrays etc etc.
It's easier to just not be arsed to do any of that so if you're a lazy fucker like me it's actually not hard at all.
i am doing okay, it will be most difficult next time i go out socially.
it is about kind of reprogramming your attitude to your relationship with fags. Once I realised that it was way more effort to smoke than not bother it was a kind of key moment.
The other day a mate came round, and cos it's a non-smoking house he put on about ten layers and went outside in the pissing rain for a fag. It was odd watching him shiver and suffer, whilst I was inside in the warm and dry thinking, 'fuck me did I ever used to do that? that was mad'
sayin that the smoking ban is bollocks, you either make them illegal or you don't start telling people where and when they can fucking smoke
during the week (if I don't drink). But as soon as alcohol, or even the thought of alcohol, comes into the equation I smoke like its going out of fashion.
I'm not addicted. It's fun that way.
but then addiction just sort of happened.
you're pretty cool.
