New member Day 7

Hi all

I am on day 7 with the new invisi patches

unlike the old type you only wear them for 16 hours thats 8 hours without them.

I am not working at the moment I decided to quite smoking because I am going into hospital soon and didnt want to be addicted and stuck in a place where your not allowed to smoke

Normaly I dont sleep much so end up smoking way too many at least every

10 mins thats 6 an hour for about 20 hours a day which I can't do in hospital

So I made the decision to quite

Going thru the normal withdrawl symtoms or should I say abnormal I am deffo not myself anymore.

Found this forum thru google search and reading the posts has given me a much needed crutch

Now I know what I am going thru is normal

Hopefully people around me will forgive me for being so nasty all the time and understand what I am going thru

Its a lonely life quitting LOL people tend to stay out of your way

cant think of anything else to say

So thats it for now

hey demented.

congratulations on your decision to quit. Cant tell you how many good things happen when you do. its great. You come to the right place for support too. Any questions just ask and someone will be around to help you out.

when ever it gets tough, just come on here and post about it before you think about having a smoke and it will keep you hands busy and give you something else to concentrate on whilst the cravings pass,

good luck mate!

Thanks for the replies

intend to be here for awhile

cant stop eating at the moment even when my stomache is busting lol


Hey demented

Made me laugh I remember the feeling well....

One whole week huge congratulations and celebrate your move to week 2 tomorrow. Dont panic about the eating....many of us are now complaining about the inevitable weight gain but the quit is more imporatnt you can tackle the weight when you feel more comfortable in the quit.

Stay strong and keep on marching on....xx


Hi Demented :)

Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

Welcome to the forum and well done on the decision to quit possibly one of the most important you will ever make and you will be losing nothing but you will regain control of your life and that has to be good

Read the posts on here you will find a lot of tips and advice and in the signatures of a lot you will find links to other sites just click on them Here are 2 I find very good to start you off and Read, read and then read some more as the more you read and learn about why you smoked and about your addiction the easier your quit will be

This link is good for the psychological part of quitting

Post often to let us know how you're doing, to rant, rave have a moan whatever you like pretty much anything goes on here

Well its day 8 still feels as bad as day 1 tho

still feel stressed my willpower is weak today

I know if I had access to a cig I would'nt smoke it tho been thru too much hell to give up now

I thought by now it would be less stressfull

Think I am going thru the depression part surprised how lonely it feels

people around who smoke or not dont seem to relise how bad the withdrawl makes you feel

Going for lunch at the brother in-laws today a house full of smoker's

will be a test (one i will win tho)

thats all for now

Just read what I wrote lol how sad am i :)


hey demented,

congrats on the first week done - keep it going! :D



The evil we have to fight

Hey there

Keep strong, keep going although it might not seem like it now...smoking sucks and you are setting yourself free.

Do what you need to do, get mad, shout and curse us out, just don't go back to the fithy weed.

Read as much as you can about nicotine and the cigarette industry and how we suckers have been making them fithy rich while we choke our selves to death on their addictive s#it!

It beggars belief when you really look behind the scenes. They have been messing with our minds for years and we have to fight back.

Can't say enough about Allen Carr and ' The easy way' book...

Good luck! Keep posting...Helped me and I'm now on Day 10


Hey demented.

Keep going at it, it will get better! Congratulations on your achievement so far.


Well done demented!!!

Keep us posted how you are doing. STAY STRONG - you can do this.



moved to week two thread now lol

9 days and counting

will be in week 3 before I know it



I'll be moving too. See you over there!
