At midnight izzy becomes a non smoker

After lots of procrastination I have decided at midnight tonight I will not smoke another cigarette ever.

My last attempt to quit failed after 6 months (Feb 2008 for 6 months), this was due to me stressing because of weight gain. This time around it will be different I am going to quit using CT alone, not replacing ciggies with food or alcohol, and I intend to lose weight this time around.

This time around I hate smoking even more than the last time I quit, I actually can't wait to quit.

So please wish me luck on my journey to both lose weight, stop smoking and make myself richer and healthier.

Thanks for reading.

  • Hi Izzy!

    Welcome to this forum - it has really helped me loads after several failed attempts.

    Like you though, I got SO SICK of smoking - I was SICK of spending money on this habit, SICK of this habit controlling ME, SICK of worrying about the health risks and SICK of smelling like an ashtray.

    I got to the point of looking forward to being free - although I was a bit nervous.

    As it has turned out, the panics about how I will cope without a ciggie are worse before the situation that I'm panicking about! I was fine the day I quit and I have been fine in every situation since, even though I have been worried about a few situations.

    I am still a bit panicky about going on holiday with smoking friends but I am more confident now that I will be able to cope with no problems when I get there!

    You will be fine too. I'm glad you are looking forward to quitting - that is just the mindset that you need.

    Post on here often and let us know how you are getting on!

  • Proud of you already......................... keep us informed x

  • All the best izzy

  • hi Izzy,

    you go for it girl, good luck and think positive at all times.

    Since i stopped I eat like a horse ( not got any plates and have to use nose bags lol ) but I get out on my bike and ride miles, keeps the weight down and gets rid of any frustrations.


  • So far so good, quit smoking just before midnight and only one serious craving so far.

    Stats so far:

    8 hours, 48 minutes and 25 seconds. 7 cigarettes not smoked, saving £1.51. Life saved: 35 minutes.

    (1/3 of the way through the day)

    Good luck to any one else quitting today.

  • We have chosen the same day to quit so I will be behind you all the way too and I hope we can monitor each other's progress through that time!

    We are making the right decision at the end of the day and that is what matters! See you on day 2 tomorrow. :)
