New here- day 4 of quitting

I'm on the start of my fourth day. The first two days I used the patch. Still had the cravings and many nightmares. Yesterday I used nothing and today nothing.

Yesterday I took a sleeping pill and slept for the first time in a long time quite well. From 7:30 pm to 6:00 am.

Feel like I'm in mourning and the temptation of running to buy a pack is in vision however I am trying to stay strong. Love smoking, hate the smell and the affects on your skin, teeth and whatever we can't see.

Bought crest whitestrip and am on day two of that.

THIS IS SOOOOOO HARD!

  • Weclome :) you are going through the toughest part. With the cold turkey watch your blood sugar and drink alot of water.

    I found the sleeping pills necessary as well. Couldnt have gotten by without them.

    I think you will find that as much as you love smoking there is alot more to love about not smoking. if you think you are going crazy just read the posts and you will see you are not...

  • Thanks to everyone for your support

    It really doesn't seem like 4 days is a big deal. But every minute just seems difficult.

    I'll try drinking lots of water.

    Not very happy right now.

  • Aw :( Every day is a big deal when you're trying not to smoke! It's really tough and if you read other posts you'll see they say it does get easier ... I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it does :) People are really encouraging in here so at times when it's tough you'll always find someone to chat too :)

    Keep it up ... that's 4 days you'll never have to do again :D

  • You can do it!!! Hang in there! The reward is huge and you will be so proud of yourself when you realize you CAN do it! Head up and moving forward ~ You are doing great! Day 4 is a huge deal - thats super. The first week is the hardest so you are a star! :D
