Team D-Day - Day 1

Well team here we are, the big one....D-Day.

I WAS ok until about 6.30am....then woke up....lol

The patch is on and the microtab is in.

It does feel a bit odd, my morning ritual was : Up, shower, coffee, fag, put on laptop, check e-mails etc etc whilst puffing away. Suppose will just have to change things around a bit.

So, good luck team look forward to reading the postings later today.

And good luck to everyone else who's quitting today.....and any other day come to think of it :)

  • Thats the way to do it Barb - constant small distractions. Before you know it day one will be behind you!

    My Wii didn't half get some usage during my first few days (and so did my games console!!!:p)

    Whatever works - use it!

    Good Luck

  • I have decided to give up today and this decision does not come with long time planning. I saw the ad on bus, visited the website, gave up. This is all in span of 24hrs. This is quite a suprise to my wife as she had been bugging me to quit for long time now.

    Now I am determined to stay stopped, offcourse this is my first day, just by pure WILL power. I WISH ME GOOD LUCK!

    Cheers

  • Nooooo! I was on a diet (my excuse for still smoking) I will start the diet again ina few weeks time once i can cope without the smokes, driving was the worst bit because i always smoke when I drive!!!

  • Hi Lou

    Paper Mario is quite good. aged 3+ so its just right for me:D

  • Although the average manufactured cigarette contains 8 to 10 mg. of nicotine, only about 1 mg. finds its way into the smoker's bloodstream. More lethal than strychnine, just 60 mg. of nicotine on the tongue - about three drops - would kill a 160 pound person. By contrast the lethal dose for strychnine is 75 mg, for diamondback rattlesnake venom it's 100 mg, arsenic is 200 mg, and cyanide's lethal dose is 500 mg.

    Regretfully, having been clean for 4 months, this is just wishful thinking.

    Any advice on how much you need to kill a fat b*stard...?

    :D

    please no, don't try this at home...

    Good morning to all our new members. Don't worry about a little weight gain..

  • Moring Austin - Thats quite shocking int it.

    Barb - The 3 plus are good for me too. :D

    OOOOO looks like I got a little niece on the way. sister in law just gone to hospital. xx

  • ... most people tell you Nicotine is not bad for you,

    which people..?

    we want names, addresses and phone numders please.

    There's a forum rule that all sources must be referenced and verified.

    :cool:

    oh.... and similarly, what is "therapeutic nicotine" ?? :D

  • Are you trying to tell me that a doctor writes a prescription for something that is BAD for you?

    I don't know. I don't see eye to eye with my doctor.

    I reckon it's down to dosage, after all they prescribe rat poison don't they..?

    :D

  • Day 1.. Team D-Day

    Hello everyone,

    How's day1 going??

    I've felt really ILL all day, sick with pounding headache:( thought this was sposed to make us feel healthy?? Think my brain in shock, not had this much oxygen for 30 years...

    Not done much, could barely move first thing cos of brain trying2escape skull..

    Did manage to walk dogs - no doubt felt better outside doing something.. And my partner talked to me for best part of 3 hrs on phone:p No idea what we talked about but it helped!?!

    Can't wait to go to bed to get day 1 over...BUT no doubt knowing others going through same stuff has kept me on the straight & narrow..

    nicky

  • Hi Nicky and Alan

    Sorry its not going to well for you both ,hope you feel better later.

    Just a thought i had , a few days ago when we had the bad storm , the pressure went down to 960 and a weather site i go on had lots of people on there with headaches due to low pressure.but alot of people who give up smoking do suffer from headaches. Luckily i have not suffered this on any quits.

  • I wish everyone on team D day a wonderful quit! Best of luck, and keep your chins up, were behind you 100%!

  • Well the day has been fine, made sure i kept myself busy at work. Had about 6 or 7 Microtabs throughout the day. Then got home, sat down to relax and then BANG, the brick wall. About an hour ago was pulling my hair out, could have murdered a smoke, and it's the 1st i've felt that way today. This is the time of day i find the hardest, but still not had any fags, so roll on bed time so i can get day 1 over with.....lol.

    I tried to explain this to a friend of mine who has never smoked, if anyone else has had the same thoughts it will be interesting to see. I tried to explain that stopping smoking is like the death of a friend who has been with you through thick and thin. No matter what life seems to chuck at you, you can always rely on a cigarette to pick you up, you smoke when you're relaxing, in a good mood, fed up, stressed, through good times and bad times. Does anyone else feel like that ?

  • Almost a day over!

    Go team d day! yay!:)

    Well done everybody! We are doing great.

  • kd0421 -

    Yes, what you're describing sounds famil;iar to me. Sadly, I had to quit and start and quit etc etc over a number of years before it dawned on me - deep down - that the fags actually put off the day when you're gonna float free of the whole dependency issue.

    Before you were adicted you were sad at times. elated at times, mad at times. The fags provide a sort of illusory anchor against....what??? What you're REALLY like. Scarey!!! But actually your original non-adicted self is better adapted, has more energy (justy naturally) and is equiped to deal better with the bad and groove deeper on the good. Fags have you convinced that the highs and lows are theiR territory...BUT THEY'RE NOT.

    I'm sure that, for me, one of the most fabulous fantastic benefits of quitting is to regain my confidence in- you could say pride in - the person I was and am before the addiction took hold.

    Well, that's all rather a mouthful and maybe not up your street.

    Just to say, stay with it....it is worth it and YOU CAN DO IT!

    All the best,

    Bill

  • Hi Kane
