Nearly had a wobble at the weekend, very stressy argument at home, left the house and went for a drive, smoking did cross my mind as i was feeling so low but i resisted. i just parked up and read my book for a bit to leave things to settle down at home. all i wanted was some help carrying washing out to the dryer cos my back hurts, but he wouldn't help, so 3 loads just sat there soaking wet and he wouldn't understand why i wanted to 'rush' to dry them, maybe so I could get it over and done with and actually relax so it wasn't sat there wet for hours!! Grr.
so glad i didn't smoke, i would have been so ashamed if i had given in, after all this hard work. i would feel like i'd let everyone down, and mainly myself. so i'm now up to day 48 as a result.
only 1 week to go and I'll be in sunny Florida! so excited :D just hope things can stay calm at home til then, partner so stressed out with work atm, and hates going out or doing anything with friends. i'm feeling a bit lonely, but i'm organising a meal out with some friends Thurs, if he doesn't want to come he can just stay home, I'm going a bit stir crazy being stuck in all the time.

hooray for you!!
that is just how it's done, the stupid cravings come and you don't give in to them..no matter what.
I think it was Betsy that said 'the craving will go away if you smoke or not, so don't'...that somehow hit a chord with me and really helped.
Not sure the reason why, but quitting smoking made my emotions go nuts. My family was nice to put up with the mood swings!!
Keep up the good work, it feels really good to beat this addiction!!
