Stopping smoking rage >:|

I technically gave up on Tuesday (although I've had one or two) and over the last couple of days I've found myself getting irritated by the stupidest of things.

I've managed not to be snappy with people, I think, but last night I launched in to a rant about channel 5's news program and how what they called news wasn't what *I* regarded as news, which is completely stupid! My OH has a good sense of humour fortunately and was beside herself laughing rather than taking me seriously.

Just wondering if other people who've given up have experienced similar things, how long did it last? I'm beginning to annoy myself with how narky and easy to wind up I've become!

I've tried them before and they didn't seem to do anything really, I've got some gum but I'd rather be narky than put that in my mouth :?

I'm normally suffering after a couple of hours without one, but I'm finding it easier now. I think the worst was Wednesday lunchtime, I would have actually killed someone for a ciggy.

I read the Alan Carr book once, in it he sad it takes 30 days to form a habit, so..................
well done for stopping, keep it up:thumbsup:


I've just had to look that up on Amazon, I thought it was a joke!

Different Alan Carr though :thumbsup:

haha yeh, it's not the funnyman, quite an interesting book, btw:)


Yeah I just read the first few pages on Amazon, might be worth a look if I crumble! I especially liked the bit where he says its essential to keep smoking until you finish the book, I'm sure I can read quite slowly if need be :-D

i heard the average quitter does it on his 7th try!

but im like u when im on a bloody diet! arrgh....ima yo yo dieter and its so frustrating!

You could try hanging about with people suffering from bronchitis so you'll be too ill to smoke and have a genuine reason to be narky as well.

Seriously - I gave up due to getting bronchitis - could hardly breathe let alone smoke but the patches made me feel OK. Two weeks it took and I've never smoked again. All previous times I would just start crying after two days of no cigs and just keep on crying all the time. I suppose it wasn't very surprising after 35 years.

Gave up last August - so 16 months ago.
Is the best thing i ever did.
I used to get easily irritated by people/things. In fact some people/things still do irritate me, lol.
I used an inhilator, but only when i was really desperate.
Stick with it buddy XX

Oh, how about tidying your sock draw to calm you down? :whistling:

7th try! good god, I hope I'm not an average quitter then, this is only the second attempt I've made at giving up!

hehe, bit of a drastic way of quitting, but I can see your point. I've only been smoking for 7 or so years so hopefully I won't start blubbing!

The inhalators rock! I used them and have been non smoking for over 3 months now after 14 years of the nasty habit

They give you something to do with your hands :whistling: - that was my problem.
They just give you that kick in the back of your throat when u need it. Tastes a bit like a roll-up.
I bought a starter pack for about a fiver which has the inhilator, case and either 6 or 12 cartridges. Didn't buy anymore after that.

Thats me calling in to Boots tonight then, top tip, especially since I USED to smoke rollys so it should be a good substitute, I've been kicking myself the few times I have had one, so that couls well be the solution :)

If you want the cartridge thing or patches book into your gp & you can get them all on perscription - I got the inhaler thing and about 3 months worth of carts and patches for the price of a perscription.

they will also tell you about the pros and cons of other treatments availiable which may suit you.

good luck

Yes, I don't know about yours but my medical centre has a 'stop smoking' clinic and a proper nurse to give weekly advice ( time off work potential!!).

I was having a conversation with a friend last night who has given up smoking too... he said patches and gum didnt do much for him.

Now he's using something called the ecig. It's a fake ciggy that gives you the Nicotine fix your craving without the tar and carbon monoxide. The ecig lights up when you inhale and release's non toxic vapour to imitate smoke. The ecig enables you to purchase different cartridges that imitate the same amount of nicotine you would consume if you smoked a particular brand.

Check out the link below...

You can also type in E-cig on You-Tube for a demo!

Good Luck! :thumbsup:

If you reallly need to use the electronic cigs (can be purchased on dealextreme I believe) http://www.dealextreme.com/products.dx/category.815~search.electronic

Aww hun, well done. I was the same when I first gave up............actually can be like it now and it's been 5 years but not sure it's down to that. Keep it up hun, it will get easier x
#27
Least you aren't giving up something like world of warcraft (anyone play it, apparently it is very hard to put down)
#28
Just gone two years without a smoke.
I onlu used to smoke when going to, at and coming from work but never did smoke (well apart from the odd one in the garden) at home.
I used... wine gums and boy did that work.
As for anger, yep that lasted a couple of weeks but soon that just went.
The real test for me was having a drink. Now that was hard but I am so glad I no longer smoke but still get the odd "need" if just had one massive blow out of a meal!
