Day 4 - Cold Turkey feeling great

I'm on Day 4 of the cold turkey and feeling really good.

I know the nicotene is now out of my system, so feel that is a big achievement. I am going shopping on Saturday with friends and will definately be treating myself.

Thanks for all the support guys, I haven't caved this time, and think the wonderful support on here does help as we are all going through the same thing.

I am going to print out the Not My Friend story and keep it close in case I get tempted.

So pleased for you, day 4 is fantastic, on your way to a whole week.

What are you planning for your treat?


Well done my friend! :D

I'm on cold toikey too (Day 6). My day 4 was the day I realised that things were getting slightly better - not much, but enough for me to realise that the cravings were fading away and I was beginning to take confidence from the achievement of being smoke free for four days (and cleansed of the nicotine) - what a boost!

Keep it up!


Well done to get to day 4 and to do it cold turkey is amazing. Well done.


Well done D, keep up the good work, these are special days that cement your quit.

Wishing you many, many more smoke-free days.



Well done, it's a huge achievement.


Hi guys

Still getting on with it, went shopping after work but haver really had the cravings this evening, but I am not giving in now. Its a long road isn't it


Day 5

Hi there

Its Day 5 now and really really fancied a ciggie this morning, but I'm not giving in to it,


Yes it is a long road and not one that the romans built either - there are twists and turns and junctions along with way. Just remember that if there is a no entry sign it means that you are not allowed to go there!

You are doing well and coming on here when you have a craving is the best thing to do there is always someone around that you can chat to till it goes away.

Good luck and keep up with the good work



Well done Mad Hatter, I'm just starting day 5 cold turkey and Im feeling much better than i was at the beginning and its great when you wake up in the morning and feel so proud that you managed another day - just think of the disappointment you'd feel if you gave in now! The weekend is going to be a test but I am determined not to give in - a good way of motivation for myself to keep going is knowing how awful and hard those first 2/3 days were and why the hell would I want to go through that again if I slipped up on a fag!
