"overthinking" the quit has not been a good thing. I am not near as motivated as I was at the beginning of this thread, but I still plan on giving it my all.
I've had 2 cigs so far today, 1 was a need, the other was not. I was over at my friends, and had 2 there.
Today I am going to stick with 8 cigs or less. I am NOT going to keep going to my baggie of smokes. I have 6 left out, and if I smoke em all before bedtime, I will NOT reach in that bag.
PS: thank you for the bump. I know that both Cat (LilMaggie) and I are having difficulties posting to this thread.... somewhat avoiding it when we're not doing well. We both know we need to quit doing that.
I know I need to take account for my actions, and quit trying to hide when I am not doing well.
2 so far? That's awesome! 8 or less today? Awesomer! Way to go!
I'm betting you'll smoke less than 8!!
If you change your quit date although I hope you don't because that means your surgery is postponed yet again
let me know? I'll still quit with you! I don't have a reason for any specific date but I think it works better to quit with someone, like partnering up
Not that there isn't some wonderful support in this thread, there is! But some of you have quit some time ago and I'm afraid when I do quit, I'll feel left behind somehow and won't be able to keep up? But, to all those quitters and supporters, if I havn't expressed my appreciation before -THANK YOU!!!!!
I've been having trouble getting past 10 (or more) again. Yesterday I smoked an entire pack
BUT, today I've only had 2. PHEW, it's very
tough! I need to take it just 1 day at a time. I'm going to try for 8 today, if I don't succeed and smoke 9 or 10 I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I think feeling guilty about it makes you stress and want to smoke more. I'm going to try hard though!!!
BTW, I agree Chris, we BOTH need to post even on difficult days ... not just you
I'm going for 8 today!
