Day 5 Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Woot!! I went back to work today after being off for xmas and thought it was going to be hard what with seeing my friends smoking but you know what i found it a breeze, I would of normally been with them huddled outside having a quick ciggy in this freezing weather we have atm.

Also found that unlike other days i have only really thought of ciggies 3-4 times today instead of constant, i think being at work and occupied helped me loads today.

Would you guys say that the first week is the toughest or is there still bad times to come?

Thank you all for the support and encouragement :)

Hi Denise

After day 1 , i found day 5 a real struggle in my quit however there is something immensely satisfying about getting through a real tough day .

I just wanted to go to my bed and longed for the day to end. next day when i got up i felt so refreshed and so ready for the day ahead and very proud that i hadnt caved in the day before.

I agree that occupying yourself is a must , wether that be through work or anything else just to make the first few days easier.

You have a great quit going and your now almost through a whole week. You cannot give up on your quit now, you will soon start to see more and more advantages of being quit .You will start to have so much more energy for things than you ever did.

Keep it going , your doing great!!!



Well done keep up the good work:)Jimbo

Well Done Denise - I'm on Day 5 too. Think it's really good how positive you are being- wish I could have a bit more of that. Keep at it- Jo xx


Denise, and Joanne....

Getting to day 5 is a huge achievement. HUGE.

By day 4 (72 hours complete) your body is free of nicotine, and the physical withdrawal symptoms have peaked. That means they start to slowly ease off! How good is that news?
