Goodbye Week3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well as of tomorrow I must leave week 3 and enter into week4!! Woot! I am pleased and excited but at times overwhelmed with how difficult it is! Other times I can't believe how many times I took a smoke and didn't really need it!

However I am having a lot of bloating and well I am quite gassy the last few days...anyone else have this? I am still getting some nicotine from the gum so I am surprised a little.



quit 7 Day 21

Hi Hanna,

Well done to you.

I had the wind problem for a while but it soon settled. Found drinking less coffee & more water helped.

Chewing gum will add more wind anyway LOL

Keep strong, you are doing brilliantly.

Love G. xx


No more withdrawal pangs after the 3rd week... Is it true? It's my only the 16th day. Looks like the addiction aren't going to stay with me any longer.


Hi Hanna :D

Well done you entering week 4 that's great

The bloated feeling and wind will settle down soon you just have to give your body time to adjust and heal itself after the abuse you gave it when a smoker

Mungoose :D

Well done on 16 days you're doing fine and yes withdrawal pangs shouls soon be gone although you may still get the odd thought of oh a fag about now would be nice type but easily got over

But sorry you'll always be a addict as we all will we just must never feed it again and all will be well

Go you!

Congratulations HannaMarie on your fantastic achievements!

Extra congratulations on your superb use of the word "woot".

And my admiration for openly sharing tales of excess gas... I hope to avoid that symptom if at all possible ;)
