My 1st day

I stopped smoking at 6.30pm last night and used my nicorette inhalator from then on, then when I woke early this morning I was naughty and had 1 roll up. I have been good all day till now I have just had another roll up. I am finding it really hard, but thinking going cold turkey isn't the best way for me. I have been at home all day trying to keep myself occupied and its been hard. I thought that maybe its best for me to just restrict myself to 2 cigs a day, 1 morning and 1 in the evening and have the nicorette inhalator in between, maybe when i get use to this the 2 cigs a day might stop or result to 1 a day, which I think is quite good considering I was smoking around 20 a day.

I am out tomorrow morning so may find it better with something occupying me.

I will keep you up to date on day 2. I do feel guilty for my errors today as I thought I was doing well to start with, but then I am kind of proud for not having as many as normal. When I had my cig I felt a little cough which had gone away while not touching them.

If you can just have one in the morning and one in the evening then lucky you.but 99% of us on here cannot do that and most probably wouldn't.

99.9% of us on here quit and are now successful non-smokers.

i'am on day 18 and aswell as my work, i've also completed 4 hours excercise, and i can tell you it's been one of the best days of my life.

i think the worst thing about smoking is the fact it's in control of you and i didn't like that one bit.

i'am in control now, and in less than 3 weeks i've become a completely different person, the cravings are less and less as time goes on.

BUT it's not going to be easy, like anything worth having, it's a challenge.

maybe instead of that one fag in the morning you should go for a jog, then you'll see just how those lungs of yours are slowly going to kill you.and don't kid yourself about will suffer from smoking now and in a bigger way in the will die a horrible slow death-irreversible damage.

do your self the biggest favour and kick this discusting habit!

are you a weak person? most people think that smokers are weak!

i was weak too until i took control of my everyday i feel like a success not a failure!

I hope this won't sound harsh it's not meant to but I think either you want to smoke or you don't, there's no in between

OK today you managed with 2 fags and inhalor but you know you're unlikely to keep to that it will go up a bit almost everyday untill you're back were you were How do i know this the answer is easy I've been there done that got the video and the teashirt

I know quitting isn't easy but it is worthwhile and you'll gain so much from quitting not least you'll regain control of your life
