Thats for sure!

It might sound like a good idea now (to have a cigarette) but just think of how you'll feel afterwards- you'll wish you didn't!

I know you can stay strong and not have one (although easier said than done! )

It's so hard, isn't it? Trust me, I know!!!

Stay strong, and stay DISTRACTED!!! Chew a straw, suckers, hard candy, guzzle water, do some cleaning, just take your mind off of the craving...it will pass!!!

Pffft I'll feel great but I will be mad at myself, so I won't. Also, in order to actually go get a cigarette I'd have to get dressed, I'm in my PJs, and that's way too much effort

Don't cave! Get up and do something to take your mind off of it. Sitting there dwelling and thinking about it only makes it worse! You can do it!!!

Sending NO cigarette vibes {{{}}}

You can do it!!

I'm a little late, so I hope you didn't cave! What on earth did those sweet little faces do to make meowmy irritated?

By a punching bag. If you can't smoke something, beat something!
post #18 of 28
you can do it! stay strong gorgeous!!!! distract yourself- get up and walk or run in place, do some jumping jacks, chew some gum, brush your hair, take a shower, pain your nails....keep yourself busy! the average craving doesn't last long- so if you distract yourself during that short time, you won't give in! Stay strong! i believe you can quite!

Awwwwwwww. Don't give into temptation as it will only set you back.
I agree with hugging your furkids.Take a hot bath and drink some hot chocolate.

you got that right, I have to quit cold turkey, not one mistake or I will just start again, but I made it thru!

I'll trade you Vino for 6-25 lbs. coccidia infested hyper pooping black lab pups anyday! They were the ones irritating me today... yappity yap yap! But they're sooo cute!

If you ever need a distraction, you should keep one of those "bad cat" calendars around. I'm looking at the one I got today & it's proving to be quite funny! Then again, I'm a dork!

You might want to check at Barnes and Noble. I got mine (the paga a day kind) 1/2 price.

Congrats on making it through the craving!!

Hang in there! It's not worth it. You would stink, your mouth will dry out and your lungs will hurt. Good job quiting!!!!
post #27 of 28
Good for you for quitting....I'm a weenie when it comes to fighting my cravings (which since i started trying to diet this week includes cravings for EVERYTHING!!!). It's probably best that I have no food in my house at all!!!

Right now i'm craving....skittles (sheesh...who craves skittles at 10 in the morning!!)
post #28 of 28
That is awesome that you quit!! When I was quitting I found that when I had a craving it helped to take drinks of ice cold water. I have now idea why it worked, but it did
