Ok, so here I am again with another fail. I’ve been managing three days a week then cracking. I’m waiting for inhalators, my local chemist will have them Tuesday. I’m trying not to beat myself up. Tuesday is my new quit day.
I’m annoyed at myself as at three days I could feel the wheezing lessen and I slept a little better then throw it all away :confused:
Must. Try. Harder x

Oh I used to despise myself for smoking. It really got to me. My quit day was always a monday new week new me. Some weeks id do four or five days other weeks id do two or three hours. It was never ending misery for me.
As long as you dont give up giving up use every tool you can.

Still smoke free here. It’s starting to almost feel natural. It’s rather odd how the cravings are just as strong when they hit but they disappear so much faster now. They hit mostly at usual times…right after dinner or the moment I put my hand on the car door handle. I’m getting good at building defense against those. It’s the sudden, unexpected cravings that slap me up against the head. Handling those are harder but so far I’ve been successful. Outside of my first week that I quit I haven’t had to use my inhaler one single time. It had gotten so bad that I didn’t dare leave the house without it. I’m sleeping well at night. No more vomiting. No more constant smoker’s cough. The good in my life outweighs the cravings to the maximum. I guess I’m in no man’s land now so my biggest defense is going to be holding a mental image of just how ill I was up against any craving. I have no desire to be that sick again.

Your doing an excellent job @SassyBoomer :+1:.
I only get very slight cravings and I just brush them off for what they are minor inconveniences i cant even rememberthe last time I had a craving.
I did dream I was smoking last night, it was really vivid, so much so when i woke up it took a minute or two to realise it was a dream. I could even taste it and smell it. So pleased it was a dream.
We carry on :muscle::+1:. NOPE! :grinning::+1:

Skin of my teeth kind of day but oddly has little to do with nicotine outside of a temptation earlier. I didn’t think I’d go smoke that halfie but my mind started obsessing over it being there. Had grandson deal with it because it didn’t make sense to make my mind go through that. Praying tomorrow will be better

Still nicotine free. I’m gonna have to have a serious discussion with my higher power about his sense of humor. Staying off cigs while going through this uncertainty of where hurricane Ian is going to hit….I’ll just stay busy lol
