My Last EVER Day One

Hiya Everyone,

Happy to say my day one has started & although it has only been an hour & twenty minutes I have never felt so prepared and after so many other failed attemps I just know this time it will be different.

I originally posted on here a few days ago & must say a massive thank-you to Jase180709 for replying to me with words of wisdom :)

After LOTS of reading & a brand new attiude this time I'm going to do this.

Wish me luck & I shall keep you all updated :)

Hiya Caroline

Good on you. You sound really positive. Post often and let us know how you getting on. Keeping everything crossed for you, but sure you'll be fine. :D


Hi Caroline,

Congatulations, every minute counts on day 1, I'm on day 1 too! You sound really positive. Good luck and keep us posted.



Thank-you for your replys!

Trisha - BIG well done, I see your over a month quit. Keep up the good work :)

Fiona - Also, BIG well done to you too :) I agree every part of day one counts as without day one there would be no other quit days to speak of.

For me positivity was hard to come by - its taken me a long time to get to my current mental state & to be able to face non-smoking head-on, but now that I have it I shall hang on to it for keeps :)

Will keep you updated - currently two hours & seven minutes down!

Hiya Carol & Marg,

Thank-you for your posts :)

Carol: A whole WEEK done. Big congrats - you must be very pleased. I know what you mean for sure about your head being in a different place. This time round I'm both physically & mentally ready, whereas in previous quit attemps I wasn't which I believe is why I failed.

Marg: People like you who take the time to let other people know about great websites and/or pieces of information you have found relating to smoking are amazing. I looked through the websites you have posted in your singatures & have found some fantastic & very motivational information. I have now done the same so that I may also pass on this information to other people.

For me the KEY is all in the READING - READ, READ && READ SOME MORE :D

Update for you all: 16hours & 11minutes smoke-free!

Keep chipping away at the granite block Caroline. Through tough times, and good times.. keep at it. Always keep in your mind that no matter what is presented to you as a challenge on the day you are on, that the days to come where things get so much better will be with you soon enough.

Keep the faith & forever focused.



Thank-you for your reply Jase.

&& I shall keep chipping away 'till that granite block is no more! Feeling more positive then I ever have before but shall keep my eyes peeled for those bad days - will most prob just moan alot on here :D
