My Day One

Today is day one for me. I have patches from the several other times I have tried to quit so I'm going to use those up for a start.

I have a busy day planned, so hoping that will take my mind off it! Only problem is that in the afternoons I work in a pub and I tend to smoke most of my cigarettes there.

Also worried about putting on weight as I have been doing WW for the last few months and have done really well. Oh well I'm sure it will all get better soon! x

Anyone else starting today?

  • Hi Pinkbunny :)

    Well done on your day one in many ways the most important day of all without it there would not be the days/ weeks and months to follow

    As for working in the pub make sure you have a glass of water to hand all the time it may sound daft but it really does help with the craves

  • Hello Pinkbunny....just thought I would let you know that I do WW as well.....I only have 2 kilos to go to goal!! I thought that giving up while I was still keeping an eye on my weight would be a good idea:D It seems to be working ...I have a little collection of sugar free gum and lollies and munch on them in between meals....I'm also having smaller meals but having 4 instead of 3.....and dont forget your water;)Good luck....If I can do it you can:DCheers Kez.

  • Welcome and well done Pinkbunny. Day one is very special without it there is no quit, so give yourself a big pat on the back for making the best decision ever. A suggestion is to read about the addiction to nicotine it helps to understand what is going on, you will find the web sites in our signatures at the bottom.

    Look forward to seeing your posts.

  • good luck today - you can do it!!

    there a link to some good videos to watch below as well:)

  • Hi pinkbunny - welcome! :D

    I too was a WW and keeping up the healthy eating is really important - don't let it go, but don't use it as an excise either! :D

    You can do this! We are all with you.

  • Thanks you guys!

    Had a good day yesterday, stuck to my WW points and didn't smoke! I did have a few wobblely moments but stuck to my sugar free gum and some lolly pops! I didn't feel great last night and went to bed early after taking a sleeping tablet, I know from past attempts that I find it hard to sleep when quitting. I slept all night and feel positive that I will make it another day! Will go to the gym tonight to take my mine off it and to help with the weight loss!
