Haven't been on for a week. Bad week. But, I wanted to thank all who responded . Brought tears to my eyes! My sister died at age 63 from complications of emphesema. I am 63, and that's really working on my mind. I am GOING to quit May 1. I have the patches and am not worried about weight gain so I can snack away! I am worried about will power. Hope I have enough. My MIL gets on some kind of breathing machine, and then, when her treatment is done, smokes a cig! And I think she's crazy! And then I go home, use my inhaler, and smoke a cig! Addiction is crazy, but I'm going to beat it. The weather is breaking and I'll be able to get into the garden ( I've never smoked in the garden). That will help. Both my DD quit. That will help. You guys talking about your experiences wii also help. Susan

Morning all,

Ok so I went to the doctor for peace of mind and yes it is anxiety. I need to remember to breathe long deep breaths lol. I am not one to go to the doctor but this feeling had me worried for awhile, just hope it goes away soon.

I had a smoker at my house yesterday and I stepped outside for a minute after my run and the smell hit me in the face. I have no desire to smoke, I dont really even miss the smoking part. I do miss what a fresh pack of Marlboros smell like lol.

We can do this!

Susan, we are happy to hear that you set a quit date for yourself. The patch shouls help you out a lot, just try to keep busy and change your routine. I used to grab my coffee go outside and smoke. Now I have my coffee upstairs in the morning, watch tv and stretch instead of smoke. Seems to help a lot.

Judy, it sounds like you love to garden but you might have to cut your time out there until you get used to being a non-smoker. I miss sitting outside with my dogs in the evening but I still have trouble doing that. I dont know what to do with myself when I go out there now, sometimes I bring a toothpick with me which seems to help.

I feel like I am blabbing on now but I dont really have anyone else to talk to about this. So glad you are all here!

Thanks all! =)

PLEASE don't feel like blabbing isn't ok.

It's what i do when i come on here as it helps me get through the rough times

So dr said anxiety.

Well i'm glad to know that's it for your sake

i just keep thinking it's too long for me but be like this but with our moves and adjustements to all these 'changes' i guess we might just be too hard on ourselves.

i look forward to hearing from others.

it really helps me.

i guess the garden will have to wait as the porch is calling now.

just feel so quivery/dizzy and shaky it..........HATE IT

WILL TRY TO GET BUSY.

hang on everyone.

Judy

Just don't light any matches!!! :lol::rolleyes: I was just as addicted to the sulphur in the matches as to the nicotine! :lol: :lol:

lol that is funny you say that, I love the way matches smell! I had a pack of matches the other day and I lit one in the truck. Right as I did that BF comes around the corner and busted me lol. He thought it was funny, he knows I love that smell.

I can at least say bf soon to be dh has been very supportive through this, I couldnt ask for more from him. He has been so helpful except, he wont let me do the dishes after dinner and when I first stopped smoking I really really needed to wash them lol. I would tell him, no its ok I really need to wash these. haha. ;)

Thanks Mushroom........(what is your name :lol: ) I'll call you mushy ............

Oops, sorry, rudeness in not identifying self. Please don't call me mushy--sounds like squishy, oozy, slimy, wishy washy... not good.

Whole long story about my name. Don't normally use it on here 'cos it's usually radically mispronounced. Neroli, rhymes with verily (I say unto thee), but usually (except in NZ or Italy) comes out as Nero Lie, or NarOly. To those with bad ears or warped sense of humor comes out as Nearly, which becomes Almost, Not Quite, or Just About (this from much younger days working in a coffee house frequented by US Operation Deep Freeze guys). So while resident in U.S. called myself Lee until I underwent an identity crisis and reclaimed my name. Patti (I believe) coined "the shroom" which is heaps better than squishy (or nearly).

Loved being in Italy; I want to be where everyone knows (how to pronounce) my name!

At any rate, let me say hi. I feel I know you all because I lurk a lot on the Psillies thread, but haven't posted because me psilly went south for a long while. Been taking lessons. :lol:

Shroom, me friend, we have to help you get your silly back! (BTW, those lessons are paying off nicely ;) ) :D I think your real name is beautiful, but I can understand how much of a pain it is to have it mis-pronounced all the time :angry:

Ok.....getting back to being a cheerleader for all the smoke-quitters :rolleyes: You guys are the best ! :wub: Happy Saturday!! :D

Oh Judy!!! :lol:

You do make me laugh!! ;) ..... but seriously, I KNOW you can kick this!!!!!!!!

It's been 2 years since I gave up, in the beginning I was 'a smoker who didn't happen to be smoking'

Now, without a doubt I am a 'non smoker'

It creeps up on you - the knowledge that you'll NEVER go back to it :D

....now, if I could just lose that 15pound I put on when I gave up... <_<

Morning all! How is everyone doing?

Glad to hear you made it through Judy! lol, I know is tough being gluten-free then not even being able to smoke at a get together.

Can anyone give advice on how to relax while going through this change? What helped you when you quit?

I like the perspective that it's easier to replace a habit, rather than quit. Can you add in something? Do a yoga stretch when you're thinking of a ciggy? Learn to twist a coin through your fingers? Juggle?

lol mushroom you are funny :lol:

It isnt so much the crave, I dont want to smoke. I am just tense, I know it will get better over time.

I do stretch in the mornings now instead of smoke, which is great. I dont have to go out in the cold anymore lol.

I hope everyone is doing good today!

I am just tense,

That's where the Valium comes in. Seriously, could not have slept at night (which is only time I took it) without it. My muscles were rigid and aching.
