New User - Day 10

Hi all, thought it would be a good idea to register on this forum as it may steer me in the positive direction as i keep up my attempt to quit, haven't smoked since first attempt of stopping, now on day 10. Using the nicorette patches although the past day or two at times i have felt slightly urged to go and buy cig's but stayed determined and dedicated to my decision to stop, play football alot and lift weights etc regularly.. so just trying to keep it up and stop eating so much junk food:eek: definitely do not want to put on some weight. One thing that has been bothering me is if im ever out so******ing and have a few drinks, really not sure if i could resist smoking.. i feel its getting tough and been feeling stressed alot as of late with studying etc:confused:

  • Hi, welcome and well done getting to day 10. Take care when drinking alcohol as many a good quit was ruined by too many drinks.

    There are some very good websites in my signature which will help you to understand what is going on in your head at the moment, read as much as you can to help you stay stopped.

    Have a look at the posts further on you will see how others have coped and it will give you the strength to know you can do it too.

    Best wishes, keep up the good work.

    Jackie
