Day 4 - can't believe I made it!

Hi,

I've been reading posts on this forum for the last few days, it's really helped me :) I don't feel like I'm doing this on my own anymore.

I've made it to day 4 and I'm still in shock - I really didn't think I could do it. I'm using patches and although they help this is still a real challenge! I'm eating almost twice as much as used to (all fruit and veg so not too bad!) and coughing alot has given me a sore throat :( The working day feels so much longer without the cigarette breaks, too.

Hopefully I'll start to feel better soon.

  • Hi Angie,

    Welcome & well done. You will find so much help & information on here, it really does help.

    I quit usuing patches & lozenges & this is my longest quit for about 13 years or so, it can be done LOL.

    At least you are filling up on fruit & veggies that's great. My wanting to eat has settled down now thank goodness as will all the other things you will notice.

    Read lots & post often, we're always here ;)

    Love Gaynor xxx

    Do read up on your addiction. Try whyquit.com and woofmang.com both are excellent. The more you know, the better equipped you are to fight and win.

    Well done on being on Day 4. Half of the first week out of the way already.:D

    Stay strong

    it will get better from now where you are no it will get easier and easier each day. you might have the odd bad day but they will be fewer and fewer.

    work will also get easier in my first week or two i used to look longingly at the guys in the office heading out for cig breaks, now i don't even notice them going out and i am only on day 30 of non smoking,

  • hi angie stopped for 3 month today same as you using patches found the same thing at work what to do i used to get some fresh air into my lungs going for a quick walk if you have to go outside for smoke just think when its pouring with rain or snowing in january and freezing you can stay in and be nice and warm used the last patch 5 mg on monday and theres nothing to worry about its easy keep up the good work your doing great

  • congratulations Mr!

    day 4 haha... makes me laugh because i remember when i was on day 4!

    hehe...

    time is an amazing healer, day 4 was really tricky for me if i remember.

    stay away from your triggers dude.

    mine are alcohol, caffeine, stress and other smokers!

    love
