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

  • Very well done hun omn day 4. Not long now and you will be counting in weeks. Your doing fab.xxxxxx

  • Welldone getting to day 4 Deedeebel...those first 3 are a nightmare but you are over that now.

    Enjoy your polo's and you will be one full week before you know it...

    Stay strong :)

  • 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

  • Hi Dee

    Your sounding pretty up and chirpy :cool: - well done for your days smoke free so far, they are adding up nicely.

    All the best with your quit

  • 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

    far..so good....keep it up

    Three days, 10 hours, 53 minutes and 40 seconds. 69 cigarettes not smoked, saving $14.86. Life saved: 5 hours, 45 minutes.

  • 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.

    Hey there, I think Easyway is Alan Carrs method, I might be wrong though :)
