Hello Week 3

:DWell...........myself and some others hopefully graduate today (New Years Day Quitters) and get to see what week 3 has to offer. ;)

Week 2 is a bit up and down so hopefully week "3ers" are a positive crew.......

Everything is going ok for me and i do believe i am now an ex-smoker, just need the times i think about cigarettes (not smoking cigarettes, just thinking about them) to reduce and i reckon we're there. :D

hope everyone else is in a similar place today

Gary :cool:

  • Well done Gary and everyone else thats reached the 3 week mark :D

    You have done really well :)

    Now where are the rest of you?

  • Hey STILL HERE

    Didnt think i was gonna do it! Feelin a bit better today, hopefuly it will last!!

    Well done to everyone:D:D:D

    Hey Sara - how u donin?????

  • Im good thanks jojo. I had a few dizzy spells yesterday but other than it was fine :D

    Glad to hear you have pulled yourself through the worse :D

  • Hiya all! Still feeling like I need to clear my throat every five minutes but feeling ok. I'm feeling good about week three but what worries me is that I know I've been here before. I've managed to avoid all my triggers so far (the biggest one being alcohol) so maybe I should face them head on at some point to give myself more confidence. Best of luck in week three everyone! We can do it as long as we keep our heads! :)

  • Big congratulations to all the new year quitters who are now in week 3. Hope you're all feeling ok and make sure you reward yourself for all your hard work. :)

  • Hi I am here in week 3. I am still finding this a real struggle at times and not sure if i will ever finally do this.

  • Hello week 3 indeed!

    We've all done really well getting here. And, yes, Flippy, whether you think so or not, you are finally doing this! It's a fact ;)

    Well done you too, Sara, for picking yourself up and showing the stamina that's in you!

    I know what you mean about thinking about cigarettes (not smoking them), Gary. I'm sure (I hope :confused:), the thoughts will gradually fade away, or at least get fainter.

    Congratulations to everyone!

    Come on! Where are all the others?

  • Flippy - you have done it!

    If you wait to feel like a non-smoker, or wait till there's no cravings, or wait for 'something' to happen you might be waiting for a long time, and you can get so focused on that that you don't realise that actually you've already done it. The minute that last cigarette goes out you're not a smoker anymore, don't wait for something to feel different, just appreciate that you've already done it and feel proud of yourself for that.

    (ok, sermon over! :))

  • yep here in week three too - bloody marvellous!

    Flippy you can do it!

  • Come on Flippy i have faith in you :) your doing brilliant and i can promise you if you have a fag you will regret it, let my stupidism show you, im back to square one and you really dont want to be back here with me, its ever so lonely haha :D

  • Who needs cigarettes when there's gorgeous sweet, juicy apples and clementines to refresh your tastebuds? Yes one day I will eat so many apples that I will turn into one! :D

    Come on Flippy, stick with us mate! :)

  • Well done to All the New Year quitters :D .... keep going. Getting week 3 out the way made it a whole lot easier going for me, so stick with it! It's not like you are missing much with all this foul weather outside ;)....I can just imagine my old outcast smoking mob huddled in that manky perspex smoking shelter at the office, stinking of damp fag-smoke.....I can now say I feel sorry for them in their cigarette enslaved world.....not a place I want to be ever again!

  • It's definitely not a going outside sort of day - yet another reason not to be missing smoking. We're all warm and dry inside and smelling lovely - what could be better? :)

  • Hi I am here in week 3. I am still finding this a real struggle at times and not sure if i will ever finally do this.

    Hey Flipster - we can do this - incentive - ask your children what mummy smells like? bet you like the answer xx:cool:

  • jojo, how you feeling today? Hope it's a bit easier than yesterday. :)

  • Lets hope week 3 is easier than week 2 - that was harsh (worse than week 1)

  • Hi I am here in week 3. I am still finding this a real struggle at times and not sure if i will ever finally do this.Hi Flippy, l know where you are coming from. I had 3 days last week that were hell :eek:

    The worst part was, l wasn't expecting it :confused: The 1st week was not at all bad - l coped quite well, but last week it took me a bit by surprise. Just expected it to get better and better l suppose. This week is different again. This will be the 3rd day of only taking 1 Champix instead of 2. I did it the first day, just to see how it felt. In all honesty, it hasn't seemed that much different. What l am going to do though, is not to say, "I'm only on 1 Champix a day now", but to take each day as it comes, and if l feel l need 2 a day, then i'll have 2 a day :D

  • Hi Josie,

    Just interested...........................................:confused:

  • New Year's Quitters

    Congratulations, New Years Quitters! Hard to believe it is already week three...time flies!

    All of you have made it through the hard part, now it's just the maintenance and fine tuning. You are so close to the one-month milestone, and achieving that is nothing compared to what you have already done!

    Again, Congratulations!

    Rob W

    Quit: 18 October 2007

    Method: Cold Turkey

    In two days it will be month 4 for me! Whew!

  • Hi Josie,

    How does Champix work? Are you still smoking??

    Just interested...........................................:confused:

    Hi Gary, no, l quit on 01/01/08. I started taking champix 14 days prior to quitting. This is a longer period of time than some people take, but because l had smoked such a lot, for such a long time, l wanted to give myself every chance. On the whole, l have found it to be not nearly as painful as l was expecting.

    Week 1 was a doddle really,

    Week 2, quite a different matter altogether. I had 3 days in week 2 which were HELL.

    This week is different again, l have reduced the Champix to 1 a day for the last 3 days, feeling that l could. Of course, this may alter tomorrow, but that does not matter. I still have an 8 week course of 2 tablets a day to go. I am going to take each day as it comes. :):):)
