Day 25


Hi all,

New to this forum, but I've lurked for a while and thought I'd say a quick hello.

This must be quit # 3217 I think :D But after reading Allen Carr's book for the 3rd time, something seems to have clicked this time. I think I REALLY wanted to stop this time. I was sick of coughing all the time and generally feeling run down.

I'm not wanting to sound like a twat, but I've been shocked at how enjoyable this quit has been. Life feels better overall.

Think I'll keep checking in, but just wanted to say hello, and good luck y'all..

Welcome and well done stopping smoking. Sounds like you are in a good place in your head, here we advise people to read as much as they can, so keep reading and you will be a winner.


Hi Fraser,

You don't sound like a tw*t at all, everyone's quit experience is different. Day 21 here and every day is different for me, some easy, other days I feel like Ewan McGregor in Trainspotting.

I loved Alan Carr's book and so much of what he has to say makes sense, but last time I read it I guess it didn't click in my head. I've got his "Stop Smoking in 1 hour" DVD on the floor next to me. I might watch it just for re-inforcement.

Keep checking in because it's good moral support all round.

Nice one and great that you're finding quitting enjoyable.


Hi Fraser,

Welcome to the forum and Well done on quitting for 25 days, same as me however I'm using the patches.

You sound extremely positive and focusessed to quit, keep it up and remain strong.

Nice one folks.

Well that's nearly another day off them.

When I popped out for lunch today, I bought a 10 pack.

They were for a colleague though :D

Hope you all have a great smoke free weekend.

Hi Fraser

I lurked for a while too! Its amazing what the forum does can do without even knowing! It kept me off the cigs for about 3 months until I felt confident enough to come out. There's some great reading to be done on here and at your stage I found it really helpful along with my fave books for reinforcement(see my signature) Do whatever you have to do to stay quit and be kind to yourself in the meantime. One day at a time. All the best.

So did everyone have a good weekend, yeah?

Another drunken weekend for me, and didn't even think about smoking.

I really can't believe this!

At the pub today watching the football, and a couple of my mates were out smoking. Not only did they have to stand and freeze their balls off in the snow, but they completely reeked upon their return. I'm disgusted that I used to smell like that.

Onwards and upwards.
