10 Days

Hi all. Great website this. My first post.

Just made 10 days smoke free at 6.00pm tonight. Phew. :-) Doing it cold turkey this time. Have tried and failed in the past with gums and patches. I think my motivation wasn't there back then.

Its quite annoying how often the urge to smoke still arises. I would have thought this would have gone by now. Will perservere and let you know how it goes.

Am 37 and feel after 17 years my body is telling me to quit the fags now.

Warm Regards

Hi there Guy,

Welcome to the forum and well done on reaching day 10!

I still get the odd crave and I'm at nearly 3 1/2 weeks, just try to occupy your mind with something else and they will pass.

Stay strong and I'm sure you will do fine!
