Day 3... So far, so good.


Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd let you know how I'm getting on in day 3. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. The evenings are turning out to be the hardest just sitting around doing nothing. Tonight and tomorrow me and my boyfriend are going out to occupy ourselves (tonight football, tomorrow cinema) at least this way we are doing things where we cant smoke.

Anyway in a month me and the bf are going back to our old stomping ground for a university reuinion, I was really worried as everyone we are going with smokes and so did we up untill 3 days ago. I was getting all panicky thinking I wont be able to smoke when I go out, untill this morning. The reason being is I spoke to one of our friends that we are meeting and turns out he has stopped smoking as well and so have a couple of other people. It has been such a great relief in my mind that we wont be the only ones not smoking on a night out.

Anyway no huge cravings today which I'm plesed about, although I am stupidly tired recently, no bad thing though as I do like my sleep!

Hope everyone else is well and staying strong!

Congratulations to you both, keep up the good work.

Glad you're feeling good today, a lot of people struggle with day three. That's great news to hear that some of your Uni mates have quit as well, you can all act smug in front of the still-smoking crowd :p

Doing a lot better than the first two days, I assume :) Keep it up! Remember it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Hi Louise,

Good to here your determination. Keep it going.

Only advice I can offer, when you do go to the reunion, stick with the non smokers. Especially if your having a drink, it will be sooo easy to lapse. The cravings will hit, how hard you wont know until it smacks you in the face but stick it out, you WILL get through it and you WILL feel better for it.

The very best of luck with your quit!
