No Smoking Day

well this is it

after thousands of failed attempts and getting obsessive about stopping and starting smoking, I can now declare almost at the end of day one of being nicotine free. I used Neil Casey's "The Nicotine Trick" to prepare me and I feel fine with only the usual mild withdrawal. I dont feel scared this time neither. :D

on here to share my highs and lows and provide support for others after reading and trying the lot.

Hi Potty

Welcome and congrats on your day one. I have also read this book and found it very helpfull. Also another member who has been smoke free a long time he dont come on line much now. Look forward to getting to know you.xxxxx


Well done Potty - and getting over the scared feeling so quickly. It's took me about a week to realise I was more scared about quitting before I stopped than after. Read, read and post - these forums will keep you off the fags.


Am sure you'll beat it- knowing what you're up against certainly helps I think. Knowledge is king! Day one is a toughie, so if you're through that then you've every chance of getting right through your quit. ;)


Well done getting through the first day potty. Yeah! :)


cheers for support folks.

tbh have not felt any bad cravings and such. Was losing urge before i started thank to book. Think prep is always good:)
