I am now on day 6 of my quit, day 4 without any nicotine substitutes (chewed some gum on day 2).
After day 2 , chewing gum , I didn't feel it helped in anyway so I stayed off it. Besides the Allen Carr method prohibits it anyway.
Yesterday was pretty horrible, with a constant nag in my head just to inhale some smoke. I woke up with a load of gungey rubbish in my throat and a very strong urge to have a fag, which I didn't.
I stayed focused and re-read most of the Easyway book, which is the basis for my quit.
This morning I got woken up (baby) around 7am. My turn to get her up so I got out of bed.
It was about 5 minutes later that I realised I had no feeling or desire to smoke.
Anyway after baby was fed and changed mum took over so I went back to bed for another hours sleep.
Woke up and again had no wish to smoke.
I feel ecstatic but the real proof of the feeling will be in the pub tonight...
