  • Hello and welcome Baby....I was a little tired the first couple of days, it will pass..I am on day 9 and have lots more energy than when I smoked...Well done baby in deciding to quit....behappyxx

  • look at it this way... you are young. If you quit now you will be able to recover fully. The longer you wait the more permanent damage. And for your kids health, for setting a good example, for being there healthy and well for her future all these are good reasons. Good luck

  • Thank you everyone, i had one cig after my tea 2day, i feel bad about it but then again 20 down to 1 isnt so bad, maybe i should feel so bad and try feeling proud of myself, things can only get better i guess

  • the one cig is a bit like

    It take many nails to build crib, but one screw to fill it

    so moral of the story is if you smoke 1 cig then you are nailed or is it screwed.

    just kidding what works for some dont work for others,today 1 smoke after tea tomorrow you might think bugger it i dont need it.wish i was 21 again

  • welcome to the forum Baby

    great to see you have made the plunge to quit and you are so right there is never a good time to quit becasue the addictive nature of smoking makes us always making an excuse not to quit

    I know you think you enjoy smoking but i think that heroine addicts may say the same thing

    it is called addiction, I am sure that if you were not addicted to nicotine you would not enjoy choking your self to death by inhaling smoke

    if you enjoyed smoking for any other reason then addiction then you would smoke herbals right?

    you enjoy relieving your cravings because you are an addict and having a cig gets rid of the craving and makes you feel normal again

    by quitting you will in the end have that happy feeling all of the time with out having to smoke to achieve it

    I think if you hold onto the thought that you enjoy smoking that may be the reason for you to go back to them at some point

    see them for what they are, a terrible addiction no better then heroine addiction and in fact more addictive then heroine

    I hope this helps

    congrats on your quit mate :D

    I could have spent ages writing the same thing but boudee said it all. You stick with it you know you can

  • just a tip on the one cig thing... especially if you are going without NRT is that it is just prolonging your withdrawal. Having that one... which makes you feel better for the moment will actuallty make you feel worse for longer as you re-set the clock in withdrawal. Take it from a veteran its true.

  • Hi, I am on day 16 of my quitting and I was the same way! the first 4-5 days I could not stay awake, I was dozing off at my desk and if I sat down at home to watch tv I would nod off almost immediately. I read it's just all part of the withdrawl process. Just keep reminding yourself that every minute that yout not smoking your body is continually getting rid of all the poison inside it! Take care of it, drink water, get plenty of rest and let your body repair itself. You can do it!!! :D

  • Nibbling sucking and spitting.................

    that takes longer to eat and a lot of sucking and spitting and nibbling do you think that might be better? :confused:

    I didn't have time to read the whole post - but I'm confident that whatever you're doing, spitting, nibbling and sucking is gonna make just about anything better...............and who cares whether you lose any weight or not ?!!!

    :D

  • It's a panacea

    I reckon just about anything would be made better by starting your day getting sucked, nibbled or spitting (unless you're a piece of bacon).......

    I'm confident it would wake you up in the morning

    :D

  • nibbling,sucking & spitting!

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ!

    :D

    Watermelons contain 92% water & are loaded with vit C thats probably why they make u lose weight.

  • Well well I say!

    thats all you had to say :o :D

    Would u like something rude or obnoxious or perhaps some square watermelons!

  • Boudee:

    Farmers in the southern Japanese town of Zentsuji have figured out how to grow their watermelons so they turn out square.

    It's not a fad. The technique actually has practical applications. "The reason they're doing this in Japan is because of lack of space," said Samantha Winters of the National Watermelon Promotion Board in Orlando, Florida.

    A fat, round watermelon can take up a lot of room in a refrigerator, and the usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves.

    But clever Japanese farmers have solved this dilemma by forcing their watermelons to grow into a square shape. Farmers insert the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine.

    The square boxes are the exact dimensions of Japanese refrigerators, allowing full-grown watermelons to fit conveniently and precisely onto refrigerator shelves.
