Made it to day two!!

Hello All,

Thanks for all your supportive Day 1 posts yesterday - had no internet access last night though so didn't get them 'til this morning!

Its so cool to get support from people who have quit for time - shows to me it can be done. I'm finding posting here v inspiring!

On day two - and I'm feeling ok, tho I have some odd side effects:

I'm really REALLY tired - slept on train home from work yesterday, went to bed at 9.30 last night, slept on train into work this morning....

Also, I have a really sore throat...

Although, I don't feel like I am in a dream which has happened before when I have quit...

Anyone else got any withdrawal symptoms, or is it just because I am going cold turkey this time...??

Laura xx :)

  • Bet it felt good not having to panic to have that fag before getting on that train and as soon as you got off didn't it?

    You are so right Sue!! Its been weird for me this time, as I haven't been craving a ciggie so to speak - this morning, but train was delayed, and my first thought was to go outside the station and have a fag while I wait....(that is so sad isn't it?) but then I thought 'hang on I don't smoke' and I just felt this little stab of sadness rather than a crave....

    that's a bit tragic isn't it? But makes me more determined that ciggies won't rule my life.

    Maybe I felt sadness rather than craving because I am determined this time.

    What inspired everyone else here to quit? (I like hearing people's quit stories!)

  • That is fantastic news - you are doing great, I was the same with the tiredness and had a kip at every opportunity the first few days!

    I used to get that "little stab of sadness" too Laura.

    I still get those thoughts occassionally - eg/ I'll set up to do the ironing and think "I'll have a smoke while the iron heats up" :confused:

    But I can honestly say that nowadays, when I remember "Hang on, I don't smoke"....... it is with a wee smile and no stab of sadness at all ! :D

    You are doing great, keep it up girl!!! :D

  • Great to see you here on day 2 - well done! comicguide.net/images/smili...
