Day 15 and finding it hard !!!!!


Iam new so not sure what to do.

Iam on day 15 with patches and having a bad craving day.

I just think why am i doing this, my mind is saying you are missing the smoking, you enjoyed smoking. I have to keep telling myself that i dont want to smoke, that i dont do that anymore.

I have a bad cough/runny nose. hope this dont last too long.:eek:

Each night i read all of your experiences and i can see how well you all are doing. Well Done

There are 2 rules I try to remember...

1) Smoking does not make ANY situation better. The situation will not change, but you have smoked.

2) A crave will go away on it's own. Always. No matter how bad it is. Which makes smoking a waste of time and money.

I always found that confronting the crave in some way made it shorter. I used to write down how I felt and actually think about it. Once confronted for what it was (just an empty, slightly hungry feeling of "I want a cigarette") I was able to get it over with quicker.

Hang in there, it does get easier - I promise :D
