Chuddy... Day 3

Evening all. I would say I've had a really easy day but just this second had a MAHOOSIVE crave that came right out of the blue. Needed to hammer the keyboard a bit to take the mind off it...

I've been having these little craves all day, and some reeeeally weird spaced out moments, but absolutely nothing I can't deal with. I know I've seemed to be having it easy so far, but I have this niggling feeling that's about to change come tomorrow. But, as I've said before, I've done my reserach, and I'm well prepared, and I have the best group therapists that money doesn't need to buy! So I'm cushty :p

I've also come to realise that my habit was nowhere near as extensive or heavy as most others: 15-20 a day for 8 years as opposed to, say, 30 a day for 25 years. The fact I've been cutting down massively since returning from holiday (5th January) and having a specific date set for quitting has worked nicely in my favour! Of course, one can never overestimate being educated, knowing what to expect, and keeping the faith! (Thanks tonyx :p)

Stay strong, y'all!

Hey-you can do this-youre one of the cheeky monkeys!!!!

craves will come and go, some will feel as if your eyes are popping out of your head-but its not killing you!!!

Remember the days you did smoke-dont forget you still craved for fags even then-because you cant smoke just about anywhere now

chose-quit and crave for a short while?

or chose smoke and crave for a lifetime

well what do you chose?



Well done Chuddy for getting to day 3. Those are the worst 3 days but still take it one day at a time. Before you know it, the week will be up and you will really notice it getting easier and easier.

Keep it up!


well done matey, don't worry about the niggling feelings you have for tomorrow, positive thinking all the way and....tomorrow never comes ;)

I got your back to.

take it easy bud


Day 3 nearly over now mate! Nice one.

It's inevitable that in the next few weeks the craves will hit, but keep yer chin up lad as I imagine caving in at this stage would make you feel terrible.

Wishing you the best of luck!


Nice one mate, you're on a roll :D

I see you've been recruiting too :cool:
