My Second day

Hi all

Made to day 2!!!!. For most of my life I never thought I be able to do that. I've been busier today so somewhat easier. still thinking about those white-coated fiends, but the fact I got through day one makes me more confident about getting through today.

How have I got to 39 hours? Keeping busy, chewing gum and drinking more water than I knew existed outside a swimming pool! (I've spent more time in the loo today than I ever did going outside for a ciggy).

One of my smoking-buddies figured it out this morning and asked me outright. When I told him I'd quit he shoke my hand and asked how. I told him about Champix and he admitted he'd been thinking about it since two others had done the same. So, now someone here in the office knows which means i have to go through with this. not sure i want that pressure at the moment, but can't change what's happened.

Hi Dave :D

Day 2 you're doing fine it may well help having someone who works with you knowing you've quit it will be a bit of extra support for you at least and if he gives up as well what a feather in your cap that will be and you in turn will be able to support him

Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

You will find all the help and support you need on here as we all help each other just like a family we are here for you every step of the way cheering the good days and sympathising with the bad but the good far outweigh the bad

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here

are 2 I find very good to start you off www.whyqu and Read,read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

This link is good for the psychological part of quitting

Post often to let us know how you're doing, to rant, rave have a moan whatever you like pretty much anything goes on here OK




Hi, Well done. You're on your way. I quit with Champix and found it a great help. Post here with any questions as you go on.
