Day 7!

Hi all

Difficult couple of hours last night, but got through and here I am on day 7. (I discovered this morning that I'd forgotten to take my Champix last night so maybe that's what triggered it). Anyway, I'm here and feeling ok, and much thanks to Shabba68 and others who responded to my whine last night. This site has made my quit the success it is.

Walked past the smoking shelter on the way into work this morning in the rain. I must admit to feeling pleased that I wouldn't be stopping there and getting colder and wetter just to feed the demon - just eight short days ago that was me.

Still haven't noticed any change in my sense of smell, but I am having to let tea and coffee cool down for longer before I can drink them - don't know if that's quit-related or just me getting even older:)

Kay - we've made it to day 7, how are you doing today?

  • Yay - well done! I'm on day 7 too - feels like it's a bit of a milestone with it being a whole week!

  • Hey Dave

    I've had a right moan or 10 today (feeling wrong way out) and I can not say I'm enjoying this whole experience but it has not killed us so it must be doing us good.

    Hang in there Dave as I don't see why I should suffer alone:) You are doing really well my love.

    Right off to kick a member of staff because I can!

  • HI, Well done. First week over. Keep going.

    Can I add you all to the "Octoquits". (I know Dave's already there)

  • Well done Dave, a whole week. Wishing you many more.

    Congrats both Dave and cheesenmarmite.

    One week is fantastic and you should be proud in yourself for turning around a huge part of your life. It's a life changing experience and something that should not be regarded as insignificant. You make sure all around you in the real world are aware of the huge thing you are undertaking. Every milestone I reaped the rewards from my colleagues by sharing with them. That in itself was supportive and greatly appreciated. They, along with this forum, became my quit support group and in times of difficulties I could take one aside and have a bit of a moan if need be.

    I was struck by Louisejane's comments that she hasn't at present got access to the web on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is vital that you build in other forms of support if you can. Strange for me to say that cos I'm the last person who was inclined to reach out but preferred to suffer in silence. Nope, it's better to reach out.

    Cav - It was said in jest, get a sense of humour.

    I think you'll find I have an over abundance of that...but more appropriate usage than overtones of bullying :p

    Hi Cheesenmarmite :)

    Well done to you also on a full week smoke free

    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 found very good to start you off whyquit.com and woofmang.com 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 whyquit.com/whyquit/A_Sympt...

    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

    Love
