Scared to quit

Postby Lolly » Sun May 27, 2007 11:55 pm

Oh my the day is fast approaching for quitting smoking.

31st May is my quit day - have had this planned for a while now but as it approaches I am getting scared of how I will go, how much I will eat, who I will yell at, now much I will cry and miss my old habit etc.

I have my nicobate lozenges at the ready and am slowly getting back onto the water (went off for a while when I was being very naughty in all areas) so hopefully I will be right for Thursday. I also work a 12 hour day on Thursday so that will keep me very much occupied for the day and away from food for the majority of it - except for those damn fundraising choccies which have appeared in the office again :oops:

I haven't exercised in over a month because I get too puffed from the fags so I have that on the agenda to start again on Friday morning................

Has anyone else been this afraid to actually take the plunge and quit? I should be excited to be free of the fags BUT a big part of me is scared and I just can't get my head around it all *sigh*
Every day I am getting thinner and thinner.....

Yay! Quit those dirty fags, Lolly. You can do it!

I set myself a goal on Jan 31st 2001 to quit smoking by the end of Jan 31st. But instead of quitting on the 31st of Jan, I ended up quitting on the 21st. I just needed a bit of time to get myself psyched for it - and it sounds like you have and you're ready for this.

It will get easier, every day.

So my advice is to not wait until Thursday - quit tomorrow or Tuesday instead :P
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey Lolly- this time round I went at it cold turkey. I haven't smoked for about 6 months. I lived with the smell and cravings every single day and it does get easier.

You just have to say enough is enough. You will get there.

Hi Lolly good on you for starters at saying that you are going to quit! It is a big step.....but YOU CAN DO IT! I can say this to you with confidence because I was a smoker and I quit....

One word of advice I will give you however, is don't replace one crutch with another darl.....don't give up smoking and turn to food....it is a vicious battle, but from reading through your previous posts on various subjects you have the determination and grit to get you through it....I wish you all the best and remember that we are here for you if you need support...... :wink:
