thursday instead of saturday.... cold turkey day

hi people

i said i would go cold turkey this saturday but i decided to bring it forward and start my quitten date this thursday at 9.30 pm.

so i have gone nearly 24 hours and i would like to say i have not had one puff but in fact i have had 2 roll ups.

so tomorow it will be 0.

incase you are wondering going cold turkey helped me quit for over 4 months last time and it was only 1 stupid puff of the ciggie that brought me back to being a full smoker.

so i am better armed this time in knowledge and i would like to say support from here as well but i always had that anyway so its nice its there when i need it.

will let you know how i get on monday night when i hope my 72 hour period has passed and i can start tackling the craving in a positive way.

Timothy it appears there are a couple of new quitters just started, maybe you could team up with them and compare notes etc, you know what they say - safety in numbers etc ect, always good to offer support to your team members - hope to see you all sporting quit counters soon

Good luck Tim and imogenkate, you should both make a team together, find a good name for your team, and any other newbie quitters can join in your team.:)
