My First Day

This time im goin for it, ive given up before but started again when my nan died, but im not gunna let anythin stop me now...

My grandfather just died of lung cancer because he smoked, he was in his 70's, i wanna live longer and feel better about myself.

And it would be nice not to smell lol...

im 18 hours in and on the patches so the only craving i have is wanting to stuff food in my mouth.

Hope you are all ok :):)

Welcome, good luck, don't worry about the food bit for now, we all go through that stage (worry about the weight afterwards - as they say just eat sensibly - doughnuts, chocolate etc hehe lol only joking).

Stay strong

I did that my first week....if it wasn't nailed down I was eating it. As you can see from my pic there isn't any room to spare there and I have to listen to my mother tell me how she quit two years ago and never gained a pound! So....concentrate on the not quitting first, then worry about your weight. Keep your hands busy and stay occupied. Lots of water helps too. It flushes the toxins, keeps you feeling full, helps the skin and organs...lots of benefits.
