    Awrigh my luvverrrr! I am really well thanks, how are you? - Work is really busy at the mo, my colleague has cut her hours in a countdown to retirement so I'm starting to pick up the work she can no longer do, so not only have I got extra work I need to be trained up before I can do it. I've also been going to the gym every day and cycle back and forth to work to try and improve my fitness, meaning by the time I get home, shower, cook and eat dinner then I'm falling asleep on the sofa the weight is very slow in coming off but that's because I'm a complete pig and can't stop stuffing my face - I can choose the healthy option, I just have absolutely no self control on portion sizes, that and an over fondness of red wine I do get on here now and again, but by the time I catch up on posts I run out of time to post myself xxxxx

    What it would feel like if you did have one: Its hard to explain, but i will try...here goes! you come to the moment of breaking that quit..whether it is just in complete temper...upset, frustration ...or that you think you are in control and that you will get back to your quit tomorrow! of course all this is in your mind! but in reality it isn't that easy ...
    you buy that pack of 10.... (you only buy 10 because you think your not going to smoke anymore) .....so from the very moment of purchase your already thinking of being quit! (senseless ....a little,) but the overpowering urge to smoke knocks down every little bit of courage and good thoughts you have about not smoking...even the hard work gone into your quit goes out the window. You get home...still thinking that you will not smoke tomorrow! you open the packet, like an old ritual coming back, it feels a bit nice, but even at that moment of opening the pack makes you feel very uncomfortable..
    You have a 2nd thought..should i..or shouldn't I....you talk yourself into smoking them because you've just spent over 3 quid on buying them. still thinking i wont smoke tomorrow... i can do it etc etc! .... you smoke the first one! doesn't taste too nice at all! but you get that buzz dizzy sensation in your head that you got all that time ago when you first began your smoking career! that part gives you a nice warmth, like a memory ...... you have another one! ...it feels ok... you think you are in control but you are not! come about the 3rd cigarette, you begin to cry, you feel desperate, you are now thinking wtf have i done! you begin to think how happy you was has a non smoker, you start to get back all you reasons why you quit in the first place, you feel let down! the dissapointment that you will feel is like nothing you will have felt before....you continue to smoke the rest of the cigarettes just because.
    You tell yourself that you wont smoke tomorrow.....tomorrow arrives! you buy some more, you tell yourself you arent strong enough yet and best to leave it a bit to get your head together again....... Of course all these things that you are telling yourself are all lies to make yourself feel better! ....
    You never give up trying once you know you can go a reasonable time without it! ...... wasting all that time and energy on stopping and starting is deeply embedded in my mind! ........ so 3 things... it will taste like *****, you will feel drained & ill after the first few (already feeling the poisons going back into you).... and the overwhelming dissapointment is not worth it .. not one bit.This has helped me loads x

    Awww, nice of you to say

    I see you have started a new quit, come on Donna, make this the one. If you accept that at times it will be hard and that even a few months down the line you may still get some craves then you won't be surprised or discouraged.

    You have to believe, like all successful quitters, that there will come a time when it really does get easier and that any craves you do get are so weak that they are easily dealt with.

    You have to follow NOPE (Not One Puff EVER) and you will succeed. Never believe you can handle a cigarette or even just one drag and get away with it. We are addicts, 1 is 1 too many and 1000 are never enough.

    You can do this, you just have to accept that there will be tough times but you can make it.

    I'll be following your progress, good luck, post for help when you need it and hang tough
