Made it to the fourth week & feeling good

Well here I am entering my fourth week and I'm pretty sure I am over the worst now. Week one was absolutely fine, week two was up and down (day 10 being the worst ever) and week three an absolute bitch - all I could see were cigarettes everywhere and couldn't stop thinking about them. I was trying to justify why I shouldn't just have one little cigarette when I wanted one. In the end I told myself that cigarettes were not banned, if I wanted a cigarette there was no-one to stop me and I was capable of walking to the shop and buying them and making that decision. Well, I don't know what has happened but entering the fourth week I feel like my brain has now finally accepted I am a non smoker and it feels good. My fitness levels are up and I don't smell of smoke (never realised how bad that was). Thanks for all the support on this forum. It really does help to log in and see how others are doing.

You will find that you experience a lot of ups and downs during your quit, but congratulations on your progress so far and I am really glad that you are finding it a bit easier at the moment.

It will continue to get easier on the whole, although there will still be some tougher moments.



Hi Biddy,

Well done on your quit.




Very well done you are doing great as Stuart says you will get a lot of up and downs but honestly it doe's get better

onwards and upwards


Hi Biddy, well done and keep going! Just think how you are gong to feel when you have completed a calendar month.

I love the Quit Meter which sits at the bottom of my tool bar, always really encouraging. It tells me at the moment I haven't smoked 565 cigarettes for 4 weeks and 5 hours and saved £144.00


Well done,

You may still get some bad days but you know that you can beat them as you have already done so several times.

Keep up the great work,



well done biddy :) Great stuff hun
