Day 7 check-in

:) Day 7 - wow - go me!! So pleased and proud to get to this day. Feeling fine but will feel happier when the thoughts of having a fag get less.

I may have given up the fags but have gained things so much more important - can now breathe again, can walk up a flight of stairs without stopping for breath half way - smell fresh and clean instead of like an old ash tray - have discovered a passion for lollys - and most importantly;- have the proudest daughter in the world! :D

Anyone else at day 7 today? Hope everyone is getting on well.

  • Thank you Lily, Deedee, and Marg, its so great to have the support of this forum and yes Deedee, I will move into the next room tomorrow and bring a big bag of lollies to share! :)

  • Well done your first whole week done and dusted, now you are talking in weeks. You will think about them for a little while as they were in your life all day for many years, but it will lessen.

  • Keep going

    Well done Vivienne, don't stop now, remember how long a week seemed without a fag in the past. And you've done it, I hope you have a big treat lined up.

  • Thanks Mah - yes my treat is lunch out on Saturday with my daughter and I'm eating for England at the moment!! :D

  • One week. Awesome. You should be very proud and pleased. What you have done must have seemed impossible 8 days ago. Well here you are. Way to go.

  • Hi, Well done Vivienne. Now counting in weeks rather than days (soon be in months). First week is hardest as it all seems so unusual. Gradually, you'll get used to not smoking and it becomes the 'norm'. Just watch out for those sneaky little cravings which pop up from nowhere.

    Don't worry about eating for England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales at the moment, Sort out the cigarettes and deal with the wieght later
