I have now been smoke free for 2 Weeks, 16 hours, 50 minutes and 32 seconds (14 days). I have saved £41.27 by not smoking 176 cigarettes. Life saved 14 hours and 40 minutes . Quit Date: 29/06/2008 16:30

I have had 1 slip up and now see things in a different light! Bring it on!

Came off the patches and went cold turkey on 04/07/08

Thank you for your nice welcome.

I have been feeling low for about a week now.

Dont know if everyone feels this bad in week 3.

I will not smoke, today,

i just have to keep telling myself this everytime i feel like a fag.

I am just reading and reading everything i can to help me cope with this.

Hi mini-mum

how are you finding things when you read. does it help at all?

What are you reading? there is some great stuff out there, but sometimes you need to read a lot to get to the article that seams to be "the right one" to help you at that moment. There are some really inspirational ideas etc on the woofmang site (see my signature for a link).

I am sure you will manage this as you are doing very well so far.

Stay strong.

Hi All. had a very boring night at work on the ward.

I found some fags in my desk and was very tempted to smoke them,

just out of bordem, but i was very good and put them in the bin,

I will not smok today.

Congrats mini mum sounds to me like you're doing great :) Resisting those urges during the first days can be hard but you are setting yourself free from a very nasty addiction so be happy and proud about each and every achievement you make!

Just got in had a very busy night on the ward, no time to think about anything least of all smoking. Today i have not even been bothered with any cravings. So now i know its all just in my mind. I will just have to have mad busy days and nights to stop me thinking about fags. hehe.

Got a lovely break from work for two days then its back to the grindstone on earlies. I hate earlies.

Thank you TKDJohn and Francesca:)

Hi

Hi there, I'm on day 16, so it's nice to meet someone else around the same time.

I'm not craving, but feeling nervy and a bit lost, but weirdly, I don't actually want a cigarette. I did start stopping over a month ago,but just managed a few days and then I was on a couple a day( instead of 20) Then tried again 2 weeks ago.

Try to remember you are stronger than the craving- I've been using winter nips ( sweets) and rescue remedy ( from Boots) You should be feeling really proud of yourself- keep it up-I can't get over that I spent around 30K on fags- just think what you can do with that money!

Anyway, all the best :) sarahsally

Keep up the good work Sarahsally & MiniMum, great decision to stop.

Why dont you both get "quitmeters" and you can track your progress both in time and financially. Both great incentives. :)
