Going to be day one! ( After midnight )

Hello there to all non-smokers,

I've been waiting for this day for a long time(end of month). After midnight(1.30 hour left) i'm willing to be a smoke-free person. I was thinking of quitting smoking for years now, but this past months, i had some gum disease developed..And when i read about it a lot, %60 of gum diseases caused by smoking..For all this time, all the dangers of smoking was hiding inside my chest, since i didn't see my lungs, i didn't care about it that much, like you all..But now i see the dangers of smoking when i look at the mirror.

Anyways, (1.25 hour left) enough for today :) I'll write my feelings here day by day..

by the way, i just digged this forum digg.com/health/Quit_Smokin...

just get in to and digg, let us have more people to share their feelings :)

Good luck Cat. Wish you lots of luck. Hang tight. firdt 3 days are the roughest. I can't say mine was too bad. I used the Chantix and have been smoke free a month the 7th. No cravings minimal withdraws.

Thanks to all for the welcome and the good wishes. 16 hours now and i cant say i'm not very tempted to give in ! :confused:

To be honest i dont think i'm actually craving nicotine so i'm guessing the zyban works (ok I'm a cynic and didnt really think it would!!) but its the habit part, i keep finding myself reaching for cigs that arent there or wondering wot on earth i was gonna do? It feels very strange!!

Cat????? How u doing mate? Hope its going well for you, hang in there with me.;)

Going to try n find something (anything!) to do to pass the next 8 hours without a cig cos i wanna be able to move up to day 2 tomorro:)
