Thanks Richard, I dont take it as patronising.

Fag count: 3

Just chosen to eat a lolly over smoking. Got a bag of lollies and boiled sweets and ice pops so hopefully that will cut down on the chain smoking.

Thanks for all the support :)

Woke up this morning and saw the fags on the side (bad move) having low acid coffee which is a mistske compared to costa as it tastes sh**. Feel like I'm trying to come up with reasons to smoke.

I can either get up and do my morning exercise routine or sit here and smoke.
My cat woke me at 4am and I only just got to sleep when my alarm went off. I feel tired. I've got work. I'm torn between being "good" aka exercising and being "bad" aka smoking.

Okay after much internal bargening I've decided to smoke. I've had 2,4,3 the past few days. Need to remember to keep the fags out of site. Feel like I had a bad morning today what with being woken up and feeling tired and having a late start to the day.

Will see how it goes through the day. Wont be taking the pack to work. Being realistic, will try to aim for 2 fags today, one now and one sometime after work.

Good luck ... having one to look forward to after work is a good plan. Disturbed sleep is not a good start to any day  :hug1:

Smoke count about to be 6 today. Staying at a friends. Had 1 when I woke up. 1 after breakfast. I did have boiled sweets instead of chain smoking in the day. 1 before going out. 1 after dinner and 1 now as I'm watching tv and bored.

Woke up and had 1 fag. Feeling a bit down.

I've been smoking for 3 months. Its a habit. I might set a goal of quitting for 3 weeks, as that's the time it takes to create a habit. Focus on other things when I'm bored or down. Smoking as a way of harming myself when I'm down isnt good. I can listen to music or draw a picture of how im feeling. Temporary things. Smoking once because I'm down just reinforces the habit.

A friend of mine gave up using Paul McKenna. Think she downloaded the book so she could just lie and listen to it. You could listen to it whilst doing your exercises or going for a walk? I donít know. Iím not terribly good with those sorts of things but she really rated it. Youíre doing well Justine, all steps in the right direction.
