A new day !

As i lay in bed this morning thinking about getting up my thoughts turned to oooh cigarette time...I stubbed my last one out last night at 11.45 and i know the routine is kicking in. That and my bodys need for the posion i haver been feeding it.

So i got up and poured out a nice big bowl of bran flakes and happily munched away. Half way through eating i was then having thoughts of oh i know i'll want a fag after this, what am i going to do, maybe i could stop tomorrow instead, and then oh yeah i need some butter better pop to the garage and could get a pack of ten..

so many thoughts, quite evil really, but i pushed them aside and here i am now on this forum...it works wonders for distracting your mind and writing it all down really helps to understand.

so Day 1 and i am looking forward to the gym later on.

hope everyone is getting on ok !

  • Well done! Sticking by the decision to stop is actually the point that most people struggle with!

    May I suggest that everytime you feel that urge that you find something to read....?

    Whyquit is very informative and will teach you a lot, it will help - definately.

    Woofmang is the place to go for inspiration.

    Keep at it, it soon gets easier - just practice not smoking, practice makes perfect :D

  • Welcome Stevie

  • Woohooo

    Keep going! The little devil on your shoulder will get bored soon - if he really starts to bug you just yell very loudly 'P*** Off'... that will scare him and maybe get rid of any personal agitation too!

    The first couple of days were a bit weird for me - it was like being in Limbo land... ull be fine x

  • 11.20 and still going strong. had a few wobbles but thats understandable, i will continue to resist.

    Went to tesco earlier and for the first time in years walked straight passed the fag counter without buying anything. And i bought myself a really nice fillet steak to enjoy for lunch today instead hmmmmm lol

    gonna have a real good session up the gym later, i try to go 3 times a week anyway but the smoking was definately holding me back and making me more lethargic so i'm raring to go now :)

  • Well done Your doing great. There is a lot that go to the gym on here and find there fitness level increase really fast after quitting.xxxx

  • Hi Stevie - hope you are still feeling strong?! Have you been to the gym yet? I really hope this is the successful quit for you.

    All I can say is what everyone else on this forum says - READ!

    As soon as I understood my addiction and what to expect, I found stopping SO much easier.

    I have been free from the chains of tobacco for 2 months and my best advice is - Be Patient! It takes time to break a habit and that is all it is after a few days - every situation you face without a ciggie is another chain cut and another nico-demon dead.

    Well done for getting past the tobacco counter at Tescos - stick with it, believe me it is SO worth it!

  • hi, thanks for the continued support..yes went to the gym earlier and rather than struggle through and thinking cant wait to get out of here and have a fag, i was able to go on for longer and lift more weights! whether its psychological at the moment as its only been one day but i feel so much better already.

    off out tonight to train my dogs and then back for a bowl of porridge and sleep. i know how to live eh! lol
