Day six - feeling stronger by the day


Good Morning everyone I woke up today actually feeling refreshed. I went out last night (didnt drink - alcohol is not recommended for a good few months in my opinion and experience) was out with a smoking friend , and other than a few minor pangs I didnt care a jot !!!

In the pub i played "Spot The Smoker" ....... Yes thats right they were the ones who looked grey and tired and old !!!! DO I WANT TO LOOK LIKE THAT !!??? Not on your life....

So its Day 6 and Im still here, and this time you know what Im going to do it !!! COME ON EVERYONE THIS IS OUR LIFE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE... and smokers dont really have a quality life they have an existence governed by poison rolled up in paper !!!


How all the gang doing ????

Hi EBT GIRL You sound soooo strong. Great to hear your doing so well. Yeah I know what you mean about spot the smoker. Apart from the look, there's the SMELL. OMG to think that's the way we used to smell. NEVER AGAIN. Your doing so well and going to the pub and everything.

I can't tell you how proud of you I am.

Great Job EBT!!

I wanted to post here because today is my day 6!

The cravings are starting to calm down now! I have regained so much smell, in fact at work I smelled something a little sour, I turned to a coworker and said what is that smell? he said what are you talking about it always smells like that!!! (that is the only downside so far, smelling stinky things I didn't know were there)

Another coworker asked how I was doing it? (quiting) he said "you went cold turkey?" I said yup! he shook his head and said " you are really strong". Wow, that made me feel GREAT! (he is a smoker himself who has never been able to quit)

I do have to say the only other thing I have noticed that I am hungry more, and when I get hungry, I get HUNGRY!!! and I need to eat right then!! where in the past I would smoke a cig and calm the hunger.

So I have given myself the first week to eat what I want when I want, can't quit and "watch my diet" all in the same week. So this next monday will be a week without smokes, I plan on starting a serious workout routine! I can't wait to see my endurence without having cigs to weigh me down!!
