    Default Only 2 hours to go!

    Only 2 hours to go and hopefully i will be able to give up me ciggies.
    But i think it's gonna be a big challenge. I have tried 2x in the past year and failed after a few days, but this time I am really gonna give it my all.
    I gave up when I was pregnant with my eldest, that was nearly 10 years ago - I stopped for a year and then, WHY did i start again!! I didn't even feel like it. i was just being sociable.
    I don't think I can hack it !!!!!!!! I am scared and under pressure!!!
    ARRRGGGGGGGGGGGhhhhhhhhh

    I've never smoked so can't imagine what you are going through at the thought of giving up.

    My brother and his partner gave up recently no patches, nothing and I know one of them is finding it hard.

    Susan gave up on the forum.

    Perhaps you could speak to her as she has done so well.

    She just stopped, cold turkey also but maybe she could guide you along the way, I'm sure she would not mind

    Hope I'm not talking out of turn here Susan, I know you are busy

    Anyway good luck Sandra with giving up.

    You've done it once you can do it again

    Every time you think you want a cigarette, have an argument with yourself! The craving only lasts a few minutes, so if it's a long enough argument, the craving will pass and you won't smoke!

    Good luck Sandra - it's very, very hard but you can do it!! Just think of all the £££ you'll save

    Now... what are you going to buy yourself?

    Hi Sandra

    Willpower is the key babe

    As Carol has said I went cold turkey as it was the easiest way for me to just not have one at all, I didnt see a point cutting down.... dont like gum and didnt want the patches, but everyone is different.

    I have to be honest and say I have slipped up a few times but I have still not started smoking again.

    When I really want one I look at my kids and they are reason enough to not have one, I do not want to look back and say if only i'd stopped smoking.....


    good luck and i'm here if you need anything xxxx
    Love Mrs Edward Cullen x

    Thanks girls!
    I was having a craving and I came on here and saw all of your support and it made me feel so much better. I am not feeling that bad today, at the moment, but I know it will get worse as the day goes on.
    But i'm feeling totally positive at the moment.

    Love Sandra XXX

    when you get the craving do something with your hands, i.e type, sew or knit, i'm going to do this when i get a craving for chocolate (will start tomorrow as i've just had a fun sized bounty bar )

    Oh damn it! 2 days of quitting and I had a few puffs earlier. I feel so disappointed with myself. It is so hard to quit!

    yep, thanks susan,

    I had advice that if you keep some in the house your cravings won't be so bad..but guess they were wrong.

    Thanks for your advice.

    i found it easier not to have any stashed anywhere i could get my handson them ie house, car etc ....

    if you would have to get in the car and go to the shop for example for some your less likely to bother and ride through the craving rather than givin in to it xxxx


    keep going dont give up giving up xxxx
