Unhappy I Can't Do This

Only gave up this morning and I am gagging for a ***! My boyfriend smokes still and I know I will have one when he gets in, I have no will power. I am already missing smoking.

I was going to workout when I got home, but feel dizzy and can't, I am going to do some yoga in a minute before my tea and see if this helps.

I love smoking but have to give up, why is it so hard. I have been fine all day, it's since I got home.

I am on 21mg patches, but their not helping, I think I will do yoga, have tea and bath and go to bed! I am so depressed, I don't think I can keep this up for the rest of my life. Someone told me today he gave up 12 years ago and still feels like a *** most days!!!

I can't cope!

Re: I Can't Do This

Melly, In the begining the worst part of the day was from 5pm to 7pm, so what I am doing is going to the gym during that period. Trust me it get easier. Take a shower after working out and that will relax you. Some great advise I got was to do everything in a different part of the house, such as read a book on a different sofa, have my coffee in a different chair. I know that may sound funny but it works. I can't tell you not to think about smoking because I know that is all your doing right now. Give it a real chance and I know you will thank yourself later.
Best of luck

Re: I Can't Do This

I hate to say this but you may not be ready. I have been trying to stop smoking since high school. Went a month cold turkey then. That was 35 years ago. I have tried several times since then and I am succeeding at this point in my life. You will be ready some day. It isn't easy but it is worth it. God bless
