Finally I am able to write on Day 2!:)

Hi there,

this is my day 2...Finally!I must admit, yesterday was much easier.My mind still "wondering" about cigarettes, not real craving, except a big one at lunch time.

I feel like there is this huge void in my life though, but I do know that this is due to the fact that I have smoked for half of my life...I am 27, smoked since I was 14...it seems longer than that to me to be honest!

I really can't remember how life used to be without smoking...it is very weird!

I am keeping strong though, I am pretty sure I will adapt!

Wish me luck! :)

    Hi Zai

    welcome to day two glad you could make it, you see you should never doubt yourself again you got through day one and now day two ..... in a few hours time you will be on day three of your quit ...how good is that ? how good are ? important things you should do to help your quit is to read about the quitting stages read peoples signatures there are loads of links to help you understand the things your body is going through. so good luck and see you tomorrow no doubt come and say hello let us all know how you are doing ....welldone Zai you have done brilliant so far keep it up in a few weeks time you will be advising other new people. :)

  • Well done Zai, your doing great. Bring on day 3 :D

  • Hi Zai

    Well done for pushing through day2!

    The void thing I think is a perfectly normal feeling (and very unpleasant), I had it big time (its like there is actuallly a hole in your chest or an ache) and at certain times I still do feel it, but its manageable and I know a cigarette won't make it any better, only time.

    I now recognise it as a sign that other things in my life are not as I'd like them to be. I used to use cigs to medicate against unresolved problems. Now those problems actually need sorting out properly!

    Im 46 and have smoked since I was 20 so I definitely have trouble remembering life without cigs, no matter, that was then and this is now. We have to try and make a new life without cigs. I'm going back to being fit, something I was before I smoked. You will find something to distinguish the new you, in time.

    Stay strong through the craves and believe that time will take care of the rest.

  • Great Zai, glad to see you are quitting. Keep up the good work.

    I know what you mean by not remembering life before smoking! I so wish I could..

  • these first 3 or 4 days are often what folk dread most when quitting, but it helps later as you won't want to do these again.. well not really anyway, so it helps keep you quit once you are off n running.

    Well done on the so far, and good luck on the next few.

    Hope this works out for you.

  • Well done to you stopping smoking. Only this morning I wished I could remember what it was like years ago when I did not smoke. I think most of us cannot remember what it was like, sad really to think we spent so much of our lives around them. You are just 27, what a wonderful decision you have made to stop much earlier than most do.
