Nearly Over

Almost my first day over without a smoke,im so proud of myself. Think i lost half a stone in sweat tho just keeping busy at work,but for some daft reason i found myself going outside to use my inhalator when i was getting the urge to smoke,habbit i suppose. I even managed to cut my cups of tea right down so i wouldnt want a smoke, the good thing is i havent craved for one that bad but after reading some posts im sure i will,it sounds as tho it gets harder before it gets easier.

  • Yep, it may well get worse before it gets better. But remember that it does get better. It doesn't take as long as you might think either.

    Just be prepared for the harder times (if you get harder times!). If you don't let yourself get caught off guard, then the cravings won't seem so bad.

    You've just got to retrain your brain to think like a non smoker, which, you effectively already are since you have stopped smoking and waved bye bye to nasty nic. Well done!

    You'll be progressing your way down this board in no time!
