Day 4, no gum!

Yey! Into day 4!! I was using gum, but only 2 or 3 bits a day, so I've decided to knock it on the head. So, it's polos now... I am minty fresh!

Yesterday waas not good, but support from this site, plus reading other's posts really helped. Definitely feeling a bit better today, much less sorry for myself which is good- I was a right moody cow yesterday. :(

Hi Deedeebel :D

Well done day 4 and already you've stopped the gum but Maybe keep it by you for a few days just in case you need it again

I'm pleased to hear you're feeling a bit better today as well day 3 is often hard but then it starts to get easier

Being moody is normal this early in a quit though so dom't worry about it your body takes a little while to adjust to you not smoking any more that's all

Love

Cheers all! Am actually doing ok without the gum, much less tense today. Had a nice long bubble bath, husband is making sausages and mash with his special beer gravy for dinner, and there's a bottle of nice white wine chilling- bliss! No guarantees the evening will be as stress free as the day so far, but am pleased to not be tearing hair out!

Fingers crossed for the evening, and for tomorrow.

Hope everyone else is doing ok XX

Well done on getting through Day 4. Yeah, the insomnia thing is a pretty hard nut for me to crack. I had a dream I had a shotgun and was gunning down my work colleagues. Scary stuff....must be my anger at quitting coming out in my nightmares. I also had another one that my son had been taken away by three ghosts. Totally mad...I was sweating when I woke up. I'm never going through these first days again. Hope you manage to get some restful sleep.

Hi Lisa :D

Those dreams are normal even if a bit scary sometimes most of us get them early in a quit

Remember though they are just that nasty dreams which most of us got now and then even before we quit the fags

Hi Yomik - well done on getting to day 4. I'm curious - whats the Easyway? Didn't think there was such a thing, and I've tried them all.:D

Keep up the good work - whatever it is it's clearly working.
