day 8


hello all.. found this forum via google..

Anyways, i'm starting day 8 today.. it's kind of wierd i've had no cravings or desire to smoke (i was a 1 pack a day smoker for about 9 years, and quit cold turkey)... But i've had continuous headaches since maybe day 3, and nosebleeds the past 3 days (my house is a little dry)

any insight on when the headaches will go away?

welcome on board Kris x x

Is all normal and temporary, hard to pin point the duration but it's not long.

Hi kris and welcome well done on your quit you are doing great and im sure your headaches and nose bleads will go soon .

Thanks for the support! I guess i should get used to everyone in this forum, if we're going to be together for the rest of our lives as we move week to week :P

The nose bleeding problem has gone away this morning it seems. I don't know if it's from the new humidifier, or if i took the doctors advise & kept my finger out of the nose.

Eitherway, i'm feeling great today.. I've felt better these past 8 days than i have the past 9 years :D

i would imagine the humidifier would help x

Plenty of room here ;) we'll budge up and enjoy your company.

The more the merrier :D

day 8

Hi kris & welcome. i'm on day 8 as well & so is Lorraine who's on here. i still get the headaches but mainly just feeling tired all the time. we're all pretty mad on here!!! which does help. its the place to have a laugh or moan. it'll soon be day 9. see ya again soon

Am i the only one here who finds it easier to adapt if i'm around the smoke still? All but 1 of my friends smoke, and 90% of my co workers smoke.. instead of avoiding them, i go out with them for the smoke breaks.. I figure the sooner i say no to them, the better I am..

Am i alone on this? And any other canadians on here?

I like that appraoch chris,

Like avoiding alcohol, i kept on with it, so as i didn't loose that too!! :eek:

I still get a bloody nose if am around a smokey atmosphere!

Hey Kris and welcome to the forum!! It must be the Canadian way lol. My hubby smokes in the house and I found that I was always around smokers even in my first few days. I felt the same as you about turning it down sooner than later. I AM CANADIAN ;) I never stopped drinking occassionally and I never stopped being around the smoke and here I am - 167 days in and going strong. Everyone is different - do whatever works for you!!

New boy Here

Hello all! My first post here - so be nice!!:o

I’m on day 8 at the moment (thanks to Champix). Saved £72.75 so far and not put 323 fags into my body.

I would like to say it’s been a real struggle, but the fact is (so far) it hasn’t. I must be really lucky or Champix is a REAL wonder drug. Last night was the first time I felt a bit edgy and doubted that I can really do this thing. However this morning is here, I still haven’t fallen off the wagon and in three days I will have an extra £100 I wouldn’t have had otherwise.At this rate I’ll soon be able to afford a Coke habit!!! (JOKE!)
