Hiya Pamm and welcome - congrats on making the best decision of your life!! So you're on day 6 actually - it's an amazing achievement and you should be seriously proud of yourself :)

I too quit cold turkey as I needed to be absolutely smoke/nicotine free as fast as possible in order to convince myself I was able to stay quit, it was just a mind thing of course, but to each their own - and so far so good :D

It's a done deal Pamm, you did everything that needed to be done in order to become a non-smoker, no other steps required, just allow yourself to fully enjoy life as something new that you have the privilege to experience from a completely different and exciting and new point of view :) And should a craving come you don't panic - it does go away in just a few minutes and you feel so proud and happy for resisting. Besides hey it's fab that your bf is so supporting :D


hiya thanks for replyin i do feel proud and my b/f gave up smokin a few months ago and has been naggin at me for gaes to stop but i was never ready until i told him i will stop when im ready i knew i wanted to but i just wasnt ready at that time :D

Hello and welcome Pam...I tried to give up along with my hubby in may of last year but after a few weeks I gave in..The taste, nausea and dizziness of that first ciggy was horrendous I felt quite ill, cant remember it being like that when I first started smoking all those years ago..It has taken me until oct of this year to give it another try and let me say the thought of having that first ciggy along with the nausea and dizziness is helping to keep me off the dreaded things...It is also great to have found this site just keep popping on here Pam it really does help to see you are not alone.

Good Luck.........behappy xx
