New here but I am on day 3 of not smoking. I used to smoke at least 20 a day, more when I was having a bad day!
This is not my first attempt at giving up - probably more like my 10th! Yet this time round I just feel ready to stop. I'm having the usual withdrawls but none of them seem as bad this time, I don't know if that is just because I am expecting them.
Still have that longing feeling in my stomach but I do feel like I am winning the mental battle. The worst thing for me is when I keep thinking to myself "right, I'll just have a fag before I do this". I catch mysefl halfway through and tell myself I could go for one but I'm not going to.
My body doesn't ache as much as it used to and I'm playing football tonight so hoping I'll notice the difference with my breathing. I've certainly noticed the difference with money - for the first time since I can remember I haven't spent anything in the past 3 days!
Good luck to everyone else on here giving up.
