Day 4

hi im new to this but here goes....

its my thousant attempt to quit ive been smokinging since i was sixteen (im 24) and the longest ive ever lasted without a fag is 6 days. Today is day four cold turkey im not doing nrt cus it hurts my skin ( i have excema) and ive jus finshed reading allen carrs stop smoking book . im using that and the elightned guide to quitting smoking by B.JackGebhardt as i dont think its the fags i was addicted to but rather the meaning i had put on them phycologically. i do miss the nictione dough :D

im so happy ive finally quit and it does feel like for good this time . I find it hard sometimes and its not gonna get that much easier for now but i do realise that i dont need fags in my life but i do need to be healthlty ..i just hope i dont spend the next couple weeks depressed and confused like i have the last 4 days

  • congratulations on your decision. It is a good idea to get it overwith while you are young and escape most of the bad long term effects. just roll along with the moods and confusion and you will be healthier and happier. Quitting sucks but in the long run you are better off for it... GOOD LUCK:D

    I think we all understand what you are feeling. It is an absence in your life.... The feedom to give yourself a little kick of dopamine whenever you want is a hard thing to give up. If it wasnt we wouldn't all be here tearing our hair out. Also the simple act of not doing something that you have been doing for so many odd years is difficult.

  • trust me i know

    Its really hard at times.. its like today i have the most boring lecture of the whole week ..normally half way through i sneak out and have a fag or two but now i dont smoke i feel kinda dumb just standing outside with nothing to do...ive drunk about 2 liters of apple juice today and feel kinda ill but at least my cravings are kinda under control...

    by the way has anyone on here used power breathe?

    powerbreathe.com/work.html

    like i said its not the nictione i really miss its the act of a supose suffication that smoking induced I know it sounds perverted but seriously when i was smoking a fag it was the pain of it hitting the back of my throat and me forcing the smoke back out that i loved ...if i was just addicted to nictiotione nrt patches would had been more than enough. I think this power breathe thing is simlar to smoking cus it puts your lungs under stress and strenghtens them rather than weakening them which is what smoking does. I used to go gym regularly before my smoking got bad and im looking to start again next year (one step at a time) andi think this would be a step in the right direction.

    any thoughts on the stragary would be welcome thank you
