New member - Day 3

Hi all,

I have just joined the forum today and this is my third day of non-smoking. I have had many many past failed attempts but am really hoping to do it this time. Have been reading your posts over the past few days and I am really hoping I can keep the same strong willed attitude throughout this. I am going cold turkey this time as I had used patches and as soon as I took them off I ended up having a cigarette!

I hope everyone is doing well!

Hi MJ snap!!I joined today i'm on day 3 also and tried and failed so many times before.

I'm not as brave as yourself to do it cold turkey, well done you!!

3 days with no NRT is not something i could do myself.

Give yourself a huge pat on the back!

I hope this time is your time you quit for good.

Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking and welcome to the forum, there is always someone here to talk to and give help or advice good luck:)



Hello MJ wishing you the very best with your quit ;)



Hi all,

Many many thanks for all of your well wishes - am really hoping to do it this time. My biggest problem is the weekend! I am afraid of the weekend - this is when I always end up drinking wine and therefore smoking.

This weekend though I am planning not to drink at all and give myself the best chance possible of achieving my goal this time:)



Hi MJ,

Welcome to the forum and congrats on reaching your third day.

Keep up the good work!
