Day one

Well this will be my first full day of non smoking through choice (Done it before when i had no cash). I had my last puff yesterday at 4pm. I feel surprisingly ok.

I went doctors last week to talk about quitting. She gave me all this info on champix. I dont like the idea of taking pills for 11 weeks to quick (i dislike pills in general though).

I am actually doing this cold turkey as i havent been back to dr to get anything and just wanted to quit now.

Have been smoking for 5 years, and will miss it in a strange sense, but am looking forward to being me without a fag.

It was almost like a comfort blanket. Any stress - smoke.

always lighting up upon leaving the house - its a joke!

Watching celebrity quitters has certainly given me an extra kick!

So i will keep up to date on how i get on.

Keep it up everyone, I believe the support from here will help tremendously!!

Anyone in London?

  • Hi Whodatgirl

    Well done on stopping smoking. I am on day 10 and I am going CT. I find drinking lot's of water and drinking green tea really helps. My withdrawal was only difficult for the first day then I seemed fine.

  • Hi WdG

    Well you're in for an interesting few days as your body gets rid of the nicotine; enjoy the experience though for what it is. If you get the headaches and dizziness, don't forget they're positive side effects of not smoking. It's your body wondering why you're not suffocating it any more, and wondering what to do with all the oxygen it's getting.

    Out in the sticks north west of London, close enough for fun but far enough away for mud, cows, chickens and other smelly stuff like that.
