Great support group

I'm really grateful for all the posts I've been reading on this forum over the last three days. Had I not been reading them I'm sure I would have already talked myself into having one fateful little nicotine fix to keep me going.

I'm now on day seven - cold turkey style. I thought I would have been chewing the carpet before now but really it has been quite bearable. I feel pretty confident that I can make it. Right now it feels as if I will probably have to remain vigilant for some time to come - keep reminding myself of how awful smoking was and how much better I'm starting to feel without it.

Many thanks

Phil

  • Well done Phil on getting to day 7, that is a great achievement in it self.

    You can take comfort in knowing that the hardest bit is now over but to remain alert at all times for that little demon.

    Welcome to the forums, and so pleased that reading the posts have helped you get through. Reading is really the key to a sucessful quit.

    Keep at it hun, you are doing great :)
