evening/morning all

ive decided to start a new thread as im in week 3 now. Im not sure i know why im posting at this point, however i do know today has been the worst day of cravings ive had. i feel like a fag and for the first time in 18 days ive actually wanted a fag to the cusp of getting 10.

i suppose what im saying is we all have bad days, and we all need support.

i feel better for posting just to get things off my chest!!

  • Well, I hope you didn't smoke them LP!! Don't, and if you did, toss them out..... week 3 can be tricky for a lot of people (check out terrible 3s and more) It gets easier soon, just hang in there! Keep posting and keep reading.... it truly helps a lot in the beginning!

  • Glad you are still around was wondering where you had gone, good news you are still stopped. When you are struggling it is good to come here and share how you feel, while doing this you will get some helpful answers and you will also be helping someone else with their quit.

  • Evening all,

    been having some Internet connection problems which seem to be resolved again now. No fags were bought although i was very close at one point. I was using patches for the first 2 weeks, however the last 6 days ive done without (CT now) which is possibly the low ebb i was feeling.

    Onto Day21 tomorrow and a week CT in the bag also which is strangely empowering!!

  • This is normal LP, as you've stopped smoking and not used a patch the nicotine is leaving your system, remain vigilant and remember the nicodemon is going to try and con you into smoking again. The ploy will be that you *need* it, it would be *nice* a million other variations and you'll know it's a ploy because the result will be you thinking having a fag is a good idea.

    Never take another puff.

    It looks like you're doing brilliant, going CT is what I did and yes it's hard but in the end I think it's quicker. But the aim is to stop smoking no matter which way you do it or what methods you use.

    Well done matey and keep it up.

  • i have not smoked for about 3 weeks :) i think that it is hardest when i drink. I just have to have ä cigarette. Anyone got any tips?

    Well done on the 3 weeks and yes it will be harder when you drink. Smoking and drinking have always went hand in hand. You probably noticed when you were smoking you would have smoked more when you were drinking.

    It's what we call a trigger a time when you would have smoked and I'm sorry there is only one answer. Do not drink or if you do, do not drink enough to lower your defenses.

    Good luck with your quit again well done keep posting and reading posts and links on here and that will help you quit.

    Jack:)

  • another update

    Day 29 drawing to a close me for now...

    Nothing of any note to report, i want a fag sometimes, but dont "need" a fag which is a big change in mentality. The month is coming up for me shortly which will be a big step for me, cant quite believe its gone this quickly, and in relation to my other quits so easily.

    Hoping everyone else is doing well
