Happy Day 4!!

Happy day 4 people. Had the best day today!! I woke up with the biggest smile on my face. And considering how awful yesterday was i am so pleased :D How is everyone getting on?! I feel abit silly getting this excited when people are on here after quitting for a month or so. I also feel abit silly because i'm going cold turkey and no one seems to think it works?! I really don't wana use replacment and i do feel that i am in the right frame of mind!! Some one tell me they know how i feel ?!?! xx MUCH LOVE :)

hi Jo,

know exactly how you feel - remember it well was just a few days ago

BUT beware, early days yet...;)

lots of peeps on this forum are going "cold turkey" - probably the majority:D

didn't work for me, panicked on day 5 caved:( Now on champix and heading

for day 18 tomorrow:D

have you read some books etc to help you along the way?

mind some people just seem to decide the time is right and JUST DO IT

good luck with your quit..

Hi Jo :D

Don't be daft - Day 4 is great, we all had to start somewhere and you've got yourself through the worst.

Loads of us quit cold turkey, it's the best way for me anyway, don't see the point in keeping myself hooked on nicotine :confused:

Anyway, let us know how you get on, come in here when you need to talk or whatever.

Good Luck :D

Yes John cold turkey is considered the most effective method long term.

I know how you feel, i was patting myself on the back every hour i got through, flet alone day 4.

You got to constantly reassure yourself and keep your eye on the prize, freedom.

I promise it is true what everyone says, it DOES get better, it just happens slowly and before you know it you are frfee, i am here at home in the kitchen on my 3rd beer and havent even thought of having a cigarettee, 3 or 4 weeks ago i would have been climbing the walls.

stay string, stay true, stick the course, never give up, no retreat, no surrender!!

YAY That made me smile!!!! Im actually quite enjoying it though. I keep reading up on it, talking to people about and going over in my head what i am doing. I've brain washed myself haha. Im so worried about my weight though :( im not replacing it, ive made sure of that but so many people keep saying your gonna get fat! what others just say people use giving up smoking as an excuse for them putting on weight :confused: xx

Yes, you are right, people use it as an excuse. Oh look, i've 'given up' my old friend the cigarette, i'd better replace it with something else'.

Truth be told I eat better, instead of ten cigarettes for breakfast I have cereal or toast now. Ditto lunch and dinner.

My lungs are stronger so I started walking more. I've cut way down on my caffeine, so my thinghs are tanking me (no cellulite - well less than there was)

What pleasures you have to come! And you have a good attitude towards quitting too :)

Hiya and well done on getting to day 4, don't worry about the weight, sort that when you feel you are able to or if indeed you need to. Don't know what's happened but I've lost weight, replacing sugary snacks with water, I'm gobsmacked! :eek: Well done on going for it, and hope you continue to have a happy quit :D
