Well I am in 45 Hours

I am looking forward to getting to the 48 hour mark and saying I have been smoke free for 2 days. It does seem to be gettin easier yet I still just want one. However I remember the juggling of the right number of smokes to make me feel good. I did wake up this morning I did not feel dizzy. I slept a little better also. So I guess the small things keep me going. However I still crave one and certain smells make it worse. I just wish the thoughts would vanish. It is not just a thought but a drive. I want to say good bye to those thoughts. Will they ever leave or will I have to suffer with the thoughts of smoking.

Thanks for listening.

Thanks I just keep thinking about them. The funny thing is I really do not want one. I just keep thinking about it. I sometimes think how nice it would be to feel that rush I got with a smoke. But then I just remember how it made me feel sometimes.

But thoughts I can really battle some have it alot worse then me. I did do this cold turkey and more of a spur of the moment thing. However that is how I started.

Hi Timpotte :)

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathiseing with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off whyquit.com and woofmang.com Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

Well done you're almost 2 days into your quit on C T so after tomorrow your body will be nicotine free

It's natural to think of them at this early stage but to answer your last query

no you won't always think about them those thoughts will go and you'll find there will be days, then a week or more with no thoughts of tham at all until it becomes the exception rather than the norm to think about it

Post often to let us know how you're doing and we'll all be here to help you Promise

Hi Timpotte

Welcome. It's only natural to think about fags as they were very much a part of our lives but as time goes on you will think about them less.

I wish you many more smoke free hours.

Jackie
