Stopping tomorrow

So the big day is looming and i have to say i am ready. I am stopping smoking tomorrow and am not filled with dread but more of joy that finally after years of stopping and starting i AM going to do it this time.

I know panic will set in today when i smoke my last cigarette but i also know that feeling will pass. I will be strong and get through this.

Will update tomorrow after i wake up to describe my feelings as a non smoker and any pangs i am having, and will ask for any encouragement along the way as i know i'll need it

good luck to everyone, lets do it together!!

    I'm giving up tomorrow as well, so you won't be alone! Go for it. I'm sure you will do it!

    Good luck!

    Hi Stevie,

    As I Have said to "This Time"

    No need to panic, just get your mindset right and say:

    "I am not going to be a slave to ciggs anymore."

    Throw everything out before you go to bed tonight. Get up with a positive attitude and anytime you feel a craving coming on drink plenty of water, keep busy, take deep breaths, shout if you have too and log in and read loads. This helped me,

    Everyone on here have been a godsend to me. They are soooo wise in this area as they all have been through it and keep me going every day.

    I know you can do it.

    I am on day 15 and It feels great. It gets easier and easier as the days go on.

    Wishing you all the very best for tomorrow.

  • Welll done in your decision :)

    It's good not to leave ' an emergency ciggy' anywhere in the house, remove all reminders, get support from nearest and dearest, and come here and post often! there are some fab web links in peoples sig's, so read and learn, it makes very interesting reading!
