First Day Quitting!

first day today and Ive got nicotine patches and gum to help me! went to the gym for an hour and waited to get home before putting a patch on, big mistake as I was sorely tempted to just have one, thinking stuff it I will start again tomorrow. after over an hour of extreme grouchiness I went out to see family, had a gum and got over myself!!

good luck to everyone else, I know Ive got to succeed this time as I cant go on giving up every year and failing!!

  • Welcome Moog and great, great job so far..... it seems you are prepared and that will help you be successful! Like Marg said, read up on as much as possible..... I tried to quit so many times and failed before but it was because I didn't really know what to expect and did not have anything in place such as this forum to get me over tough times.... you did really, really well today already with 'getting over your grouchiness' :) You were stronger than the nic demon :D Keep it up!!

  • thanks for that marg, I have been reading loads of posts and have found them really useful. I will be on here alot just to keep the fingers busy!:)

  • thank you so much, Im going to karate chop that nic demon away for good!!

    hope i can stay this positive but with the help of this forum i know i can do it. I also hope to be able to support other too.

    after over an hour of extreme grouchiness I went out to see family, had a gum and got over myself!!

    I think you've got the attitude just right for a successful start to a quit.

    In case you missed the advice that Margaret was giving - read, read, read :cool:

    Congrates on the quit, im only on day 5 today and like you on the first day I started at the gym been a few times now it is great when you really need to de-stress. It has helped me a lot reading the stuff and not just what it does to you but how it affects you.

    Good luck and keep posting
