Hi terry and sutty, well done on quitting.

There are quite a few of us now on our first week. Im on day 6 today and have found this forum to be my life line.

You will find so much support on here and encouragement, for more information and to help with the quit i found whyquit.com a fab site and read it when im having a bad day.

Good luck both of you :)

Well - we are all legends for at least starting this journey into the unknown.

Good to know you Terry and Denise, we are the new guys and will have to rely on the experience from the 'experienced' quitters like Linda.

I am going through the stage of physical withdrawel (I am going for cold turkey) - a bit light headed, a few pains here and there, hungry all the time and the inability to sleep properly. Also I am a furious person today - and those around me have felt like its been working with devil I am sure...can't help it, sure they will be fine in a few days.

As I said to someone - quitting smoking is like living life in Hi-Def, a new world of smells, tastes and even sensations opens up!

Hi everyone,day 2 for me today,a bit harder than yesterday,but ok.

I think that I am missing the coffee more than the cigs.Trying to avoid triggers,so no coffee for me for a while.

You are all doing really well,we can beat this.

Hi!

I am on day 2 of being a non-smoker! I am trying not to panic and to stay calm! I am going cold turkey at the moment as I was determined to stop by the 5th Jan (day I went back to work) but I hadn't had time to go out to buy patches/inhalator etc so I am trying to cope without.

So far - so good!

Had another incentive too at work - a colleagues sister was taken ill on New Year's Day - she had a stroke.

She is 38 - a heavy smoker and did drink at weekends but not excessively. Makes you think!

Hello and welcome!

If you haven't already have a read Of Whyquit.com and the tales at woofmang and maybe check out one of the free quit smoking programs (links in my sig). The hardest part of quitting is getting the right mental attitude. Quitting is not a sacrifice it is a gaining situation.

It does make you sit up and take notice when someone of that age has a stroke! Scary!

Anyway, all the best with the quit!

Thanks for those links Nic.

There are some scary stories there, especially as a lot of the scary stories are about people younger than me!

Don't worry - I will keep all posted about my progress. I am SO determined to gain the freedom from the weed!! As well as gain a few pennies in my pocket!

Yet very scary, but also plenty of informative stuff there to.

To be honest the thing that I am sooooooo pleased about is regaining freedom I never truly appreciated the control that smoking had over my life and the way I was forced to live it, to be able to smoke as much as I "needed" to.

Best wishes
