  • Hi Gazza,

    First of all well done for quitting and welcome. This is day 5 for me and it gets better by the day. Keep posting here for encouragement and good luck.

  • so far so good

    i can totally agree with you . i would have to say so far the hardest day for me was day 2 .Especially when i was of work so my mind was playing games with me .

    i am finding it alot more easier now the time is slowly getting more and more .

    hardly any cravings . if i get them i just pop a polo mint it works a treat :cool:

  • Well done, Gazza.

    You seem to be doing really well, good for you!

  • hi gazza

    well done and welcome to the site

  • why thank you

    how long has every one quit for .

    and what isyourbest advise and remedies

  • I'm coming up to 4 months - today is day 116, and my best advice is to learn about your addiction by reading.

    This forum, Allen Carr's book, whyquit.com and woofmang.com are my favourite resources.

    When a crave hits, I found it helps to embrace it. Recognise it for what it is - part of the healing process. It cannot hurt you and it will go away whether or not you smoke.

    It will, they all go away on their own.

    Another golden rule - a cigarette cannot change anything or help a bad situation. The situation stays the same, but you just smoked.

    It also helps a lot to relax, I am lucky enough to live a few hundred yards from a beautiful secluded beach - and a walk along there chucking a few stones into the water always got me back on track.

    But, learning about yourself and your own addiction is the best single way to ensure a quit that is as easy as possible to maintain.

    I was taught this when I arrived, and I could not be more grateful to those that advised me to read, read, read.

  • Hi Gazza,

    Well done on quitting hun and welcome to the forums. You are doing great getting to day 4, this is day 6 for me and i dont think i would of got this far if i hadnt read the links that stuart above as posted and also these forums.

    The people on here have really helped, they are so supportive, if your having a bad 5 mins or bad day come on here and post, in no time you will have people giving you encouragement and support.

    Keep focused hun and well done again

    We are or have all been through it so we can understand in a way that non smoking family and friends don't and cant!
