The eve

Hi all...

it's 11:15 and I'm on the eve of my quit date :eek:

I'm feeling really... odd - a mixture of emotions I quess.

Sadly though, I feel alone. I have those who have never smoked, so find it hard to understand, those who have done it with out help, support or effort and those who smoke and think I'm crazy for wanting to give up!

I'm so glad I've found this site, I give a big pat on the back to those who are allready a few steps ahead of me.

Seren xXx

    Hello Seren

    We are here for you all the way, Questions or any form of help just ask anytime. I am on day 31 and had no Idea what to expect, but here I am and doing fine. It is tough in the beginning but keep in mind! Quit and don't even let your self have 1 not even a puff. Try to go one step at a time and remeber the first couple of days are the hardest then it gets easier.



  • Thank you for the encouraging words...

    Day 31? Well done you!

    After six weeks it's odd to think the day is nearly here!

  • Nrt


    It is good that you set a date, are you using anything like the patch or gum?

    It seems really weird thinking im on day 31 and so long ago. I smoked about 2 packs a day for well over a decade. I tried a lot of times to quit, this time its working. The patch helped me fight of the hand habit, now im about to step down and ween off the nicotine over the next few weeks.


  • Seren, you can do this. The people on here are great, giving lots of support and laughs. I am only on Day 6, but already feel much better.

    Everyone will support you and give you 100%

    Good luck


  • Hello Seren,

    Your post was 11 hours ago :) so now you are on day one and I for one can't wait to hear how you are doing!

    Take each day as it comes and drag your self through each hour by any means possible and before you know, you'll be through the worse.

    It'll have it's up and downs but we're here for you,all of us going through quitting, even if each persons quits are different, we are all here to help and support each other x x

    And the end of the day the decision to quit smoking is the only way forward, Buffy x

  • OH WOW the support here is amazing, thanks everyone.

    Well it's 12:45 I bought the gum and the patches (just in case) I got up at 8:00 so I've been smoke free for 4 hours and 45 mins :D and so far it's been good... I've not had one craving yet I prolly would of smoked 5/7 by now and I've only used one gum!

    After I finish this cuppa I'm gonna make some dinner, so I'm not look forward to that - I used to light up straight after food... but I'm armed with mints and orange juice!

    I'm looking forward to having an aromatherapy bath tonight to treat myself, and I'm planing on going to the gym 2mora :eek: (it's been years).

  • Yay!! Well done Seren,

    Glad you've thought ahead and chosen little rewards for yourself along the way, that's a great incentive!

    I can totally relate to missing that ciggie after dinner but after a few days, being able to taste your dinner is much better!

    Good luck at the Gym too! don't over do it mind! hehe

    Oh yeah we'll all be here to spy on you ;) lol and help and support too of course :D
