Welcome aboard overzealous and seekerof

This is great news

Today I actually started to get mad at my new supervisor lecturing me about my smoke breaks. I am the new girl, been at this job a month, and I can assure U all I have no more than 4 at work so WTF is his problem ?

But then before I got mad and sought legal advice in regard to him telling me that "some" people he allows more because they earned it
give me a break! lol I can't believe he even said that, I thought that this was actually a vert good thing! I'm already making a more conscious effort to not go out for one

still wondering if I have a case though

Just checking in, hadn't posted in a few days.
6 more days to go for me..
I've been trying to pay attention to the things that trigger a smoke break..

Driving, and my morning coffee are two of them..

Then there is the "frustration" with my ever changing workplace.
It wasn't an insane asylum when I started, it's just drifting in that direction.
puff puff.

Anyone else want to check in?
How's it going for you?

Paid a visit to the Doc today.

Now, I have a baseline, for my vitals.

Weight: 206 pounds
O2 level: 91 percent.
Blood pressure..I don't remember, but systolic was normal, and diastolic was a a point or two above normal.

He offered welbutrin (zyban).
I turned it down, due to 2 of my coworkers using it to no avail.

I convinced him to two other types of happy pills..
both are chemically related to valium.

After all, I am on vacation...Don't have to do anything of importance to do.
Feed the dogs, the cats..myself..

So that's it for me...


Who's still in!!!!!????

It's way too late for that.
You should have been around when I picked up the first one.

Now, you would be risking your life, getting between the addict, and the butt.

I really appreciate the kind offer, and words of support though.

I'm just here to offer some support for all you guys out there.

I understand how hard it is to kick a habit or break an addiction.

Just keep pushing yourselves, you can do it guys! Keep it up, and good luck to all of you. It's a great thing your trying to do, don't forget that.

Any support is appreciated.
Got a smoke on ya?
two days so far...had a little puff, I admit..on Monday..
Wasn't a big deal..which I thought it would be..

I tried and failed.

For a few days i was down to a bit less than a pack a day but now I'm back to my usual nasty habit. I think this is going to be a hard nut to crack.

You seem to be making progress though, and I'm going to really give it another try after Christmas is over. All these social gatherings and the demands of the season are making it more difficult to try quiting.

Good luck to you my friend.
I hope you kick it for good.

You tried, but didn't fail.
Thats because you tried.

Try again. You know it's for the best.

Keep posting in here, or even by U2U

Feeling a little better

Don't mess with me, though..(according to my wife)
I will calmy insult you, and make you feel good about it..

I cleaned all the nasty smell from my car. And sprayed it with Febreeze, to get the smoke out..BUT, I found an old pack of my buddys, and smoked one.

aHOws is everyone else doing? Or did everyone forget?

Stick with it, spacedoubt. You're on the right road. What was your reaction to smoking that cigarette?

posted on Dec, 28 2005 @ 03:18 AM
It was like lighting up a roll of dry mud (the taste)
THey were somewhat old, and stale ...
It was good negative reinforcement,LOL
And I got dizzy..which was a bit of fun...
But I can spin myself round in a office chair for 30 seconds to get that sensation.!

Just a note to let you know that I'm thinking about you and sending you ex-smoker vibes!

Good job! Soon, you'll leave this frantic stage behind you and you'll be so proud of yourself! And that will last for years and years!

Stale cigarettes.

I once found a near full pack of cigarettes under my bed and thought I had found a treasure trove, until I lit one up. I'm a little surprised that you would find that dizzy feeling pleaureable. I've always thought that that feeling helps to show just how useless cigarettes really are, except of course as a nicotine delivery system.

posted on Dec, 28 2005 @ 04:42 PM
hmmm. maybe it wasn't dizzyness. maybe I became alert to the rotation of the earth, and lost my balance..who knows??!

And BH, thank you very much...I can feel those vibes.

I've taken some steps toward quitting this nasty habit.

I saw my doctor this morning to discuss my addiction, and he had sufficient concern to refer me to a cardiologist for further tests. So I guess they're going to put me through an exercise test, do some blood work, etc....

I may go on the patch or try zyban.

Perhaps the medical community will put enough fear into me to help me kick the butts for good.

Thanks for starting this thread spacedoubt, it may save my life.

Thanks for the kind words AD..

I recommend a doc visit for sure...Thats what I did.
He'll ask you , if you are ready..
I just unloaded on him, and he understood my anxiety with it..
He listenened..that make a big difference...he didn't preach, cause we've all heard it before..

Best of luck my friend..

posted on Dec, 30 2005 @ 11:01 PM
Yeah, I think seeing the doctor was a good first step. There was no preaching, just a general concern for my health and a desire to work with me through the quitting process.

I called the cardiologist this afternoon to book an appt. for the GXT and whatever else they'll do, and thanks to the Canadian medical system(free), I have the tests done on January 5th. I'll also be back to my GP for a complete physical and to get my test results on the 9th.

30 years of smoking is not going to be an easy habit to stop, but I'm really going to make an effort.

Thanks again spacedoubt, I'll keep you posted as to how it's going.
