Day 4 for me

Hi everyone, I'm now on day 4 of what's going to be my final quit! Ive stopped so many times before but this time I'm more determined than ever. It's not been too bad so far, I'm using 24 hour patches but taking them off at night - don't like the crazy dreams! I'm also taking the odd mini lozenge and I find a glucose tablet now and then does help too. I'm also going to the local Smoking Cessation Group. The more support the better, and this forum seems a great way to get even more support.

My husband is still smoking but he's been going outside which is really helping, long may it last.

I've been reading some posts the last couple of days at work and it's realy helped, I've been having the same feelings and experiences as quite a few of you. I'm determined that the monster wont get me again!

Thanks everyone for helping me get through the first few days!

  • Well done, I didn't like wearing the patches at night either, I'll always remember one dream of being chased by a huge ciggerette lol

  • Welcome and well done stopping smoking. Those websites in Marg's post are a great help they will give you the tools and mind set to stay stopped.

  • Hi and well done on reaching day 4.

    I have to say that your husband going outside should really help. When my fiancee and I both smoked, neither of us would do so in the house as the smell of stale smoke was terrible to us, even as smokers.

  • Gor through day 4...........

    Hi everyone, thanks very much for your messages of encouragement. Day 4 was quite hard, I had quite a lot of little pangs, only discovered when I went to bed that my patch was a bit loose! Day 5 now and so far so good, my glocose tablets are helping a lot. I guess keeping busy is good too, I've been spending a lot of time on the pc, and reading. I know it will get easier though. Cheers, Libby :)
