WOOHOO!!! Way to go Sistine!!!
You can do this!! Yes you can!! Use the Force (*ahem* )!!!
I didn't get huge hugs.
Only regular hugs from our queen.
edit: Ok I had to go back and do some actual reading... But I did get huge hugs from our queen. Silly me! I guess I'll cash those puppy's in at the next opportunity.
Sorry your hienesnes.
I slipped last night.
Last night was my roomies b-day (aka today but it's a work night) and I broke down and had a bit more than half of one. Later on my roommate showed up with another smoke. I had quite a few drags off that.
But, I don't have any now and the cravings aren't that strong. And get this, I haven't even put on a new patch yet.
A slip-up is not the same as failure. You are still doing great.
Thanks. I didn't really want that 2nd one. My roommate just showed up with two in his hand. So it was there and I wasn't about to save it for later.
You are still doing great Dave. Just keep going and it will happen. I will be joining in 1 week.
You are human Dave. Forgive yourself for what you did and move on from there. I have to remind myself the same thing whenever I go on a diet modification program. I am slowly learning that lesson myself.
Cold Turkey is the Hobgoblin of Cheating
It never works, that's why people get frustrated so easily. You have to come to terms w/ the fact that a "slip" is not the end of the exercise, only a hurdle to overcome in the course of your path.
I haven't actively smoked in like 10 years, and I still "Slip" every once in a while (I've been more successful in the drinking thing though, not a one since 1988, but death has been a more emminent spectre for that one).
Put the patch on at 8am this morning, thing itched like crazy. For a brief moment I thought 'I am going to take this thing off'. No I am commited to my cause. I began driving to my dr. appointment and the patch kicked in...whoa...I had that foggy head rush feeling.
Here it is 11:36 and I haven't had a craving yet...tonight at home I well have a hard time.
I should get a few phone numbers for support, since I don't have the 'puter yet at home...
Applying pressure helps a bit with the itching. Also it goes away after a few. Just make sure you don't peel it off with the fingernails.
Maybe I shouldn't be posting under this Subject heading...
Chicks and Dudes.
BTW, here's a pic of my new nonsmoking buddy. Chuck full of almond M&M's
your heads are both so shiny!
Hee hee. That's why he's my buddy!
It's hard to tell the difference, but Dave is the one on the left.
You sure about that?
yeah, cause the one on the right tastes better...
i take that back, you quit smoking.
So you both taste pretty good.
and LOL @ gender neutral!
Hey Dave you need to make a Lobot headgear piece for your buddy.
Hey, that'll work!
He will be like your own little dummy.
Oh I have enough dummies in my house as it is.
yeah dave you live their!!!!
