Day 4 - Bonkers on Day 3

So, day 4 for me. Discounting Sunday when the drive home, cold due to having an open window "..(insert own expletive) am I doing" moment hit.

I have probably spent the last 4 years saying I could quit, but never did, and after 20 a day (more with beer) for 20 years they just gotta go. Work a lot at home so forum support seems a good path, and I have enjoyed reading some posts already and good to see its not just me.

Day 4, chest hurts and I am v. tired. Day 3, lost the ability to think for a while with what is best described as a 'fuzzy' head and lost my rag with the nearest and dearest (rare for me that).

Off for a little run on the treadmill now having saved another 6 quid today and look forward to the Friday fight tomorrow.

Thanks for listening...look forward to adding something back soon.

I know what you mean, when the moment of realisation hits you and you think why the hell am I doing this, what am I actually getting out of it apart from stinking, killing myself etc....

I've spent the last 10 years quitting and starting again, The longest quit being around 6 months. I tend to get complacent and think yeah I've quit I'm the man I can just have the occasional smoke, Then before I know it I'm on 15 a day AGAIN.

This time I'm hoping with the help of this forum that its my final quit.

Good luck, we both know we have made the right decision just have to stick to it now


Hi Delboy :)

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

Ta very much. Just went for a beer. Got close, but hey, no cigar! Things are looking good and to be fair my friends are a good bunch so no dodgy peer pressure!...tough though.


I'm glad to hear you didnt have a cigar, keep going!


Hi delboy - welcome to this place!

Well done for getting this far - you have to believe in yourself that you can do this.

It is tough sometimes but the cravings aren't painful - they won't kill you, smoking will.

I found that posting on here constantly really helped, there was always someone around to help you or give you a kick up the butt!

Read lots and get to know your enemy (I call him the nico-demon).

Stick with it and good luck:D
