Onto Day 3 -Not sure how tho' struggling

Hi All

Day 3 for me, really struggled from 3pm yesterday for most of the rest of the day.

Weird but I kept thinking that it's easier and less painful to be smoking :eek:

Seem to be fine when I'm busy but once I got home from work with my daughter & husband etc I turned into a venomous witch.

HOW I didn't cave I don't know. Spent a couple of hours scouring links and this forum then went to bed.

Another crappy night, not so many wakes (prob only about 10) but still night sweats.......argh.............:mad:

Keep telling myself I AM NOT GIVING SOMETHING UP JUST DECIDING NOT TO DO SOMETHING THATS GOING TO KILL ME!!!

Anyway - rant over - I just wish it would get easier!

Anyone using NRT, when did it start to feel easier????? Am using mictrotabs and inhalor.

Thanks all, Jane

  • Thanks again Rick!

    Not doing too bad so far so good. Must admit I was partial to the odd glass or 4 of red wine up until my quit day - daren't even think about alcohol as sure it will be my downfall - so I am now treating my body as a temple (not done that for many years believe me!) and do I feel better - NAH!!! :mad:

    My coping method seems to be delving into naughty food at the mo.........oh well sort out the food issue once this evil weed has a less of a hold on me!!!

    Thanks for taking the time to reply to me again!

  • Scared myself now

    Hi Anyone reading,

    Well I decided to look at whyquit and have now scared myself half to death that a/ I've left quitting too long and b/ that by using NRT I'm actually prolonging the agony.

    Is what they say about the nicotine in NRT being the same as in cigarettes true? I was told by the smoking cessation councillor that it's 'clean' nicotine and not addictive........

    Not sure now whether I should just try cold turkey........

    Am worried.................

  • hmmm i feel the same today, really tired for some reason. Anyone else tired today?

  • Jane

    just keep as you are for now day three is hard because most of the nicoteen is leving the body. by 2moro or the day after you will feel much better just wait and see you can deal with the nrt after that. Keep strong babe we are with you. Linda xxxx
