Made it to day 4

Well that was day three kicked into touch! after a long shift at work and a few beers down my local, i was in bed by 8 that was the end of the worse day of my quit. I know it gets better from here on in. First time in the pub since i quit, it was interesting how some of my freinnds took it, some full of encouragement and other quite hostile, it was the constant disappearing out side and coming back stinking of fags i almost found revolting:eek:

Beccy you still with me? I know you are:cool: Its gona be a good day today and we will not smoke today.

Good luck to all.

Mark

  • Good for you! You'll probably find its a jealousy thing, re you have quit and they can't. Theres a good crop of new quitters here now which is brilliant!!

  • Congrats Mark,

    and well done for facing the pub so early in your quit, still can’t manage that one yet :)

    Here’s to another positive day

    Jan

  • Still here!!

    Hi Mark,

    Yes still here - saw the nurse last night, carbon monoxide levels are down to 3!! Yay!!

    I agree yesterday was a complete b!tch of a day!

    Ok so far today, have just picked up my prescription for another months worth of champix, so cracking on with that!!

    :D

  • Hi Mark :D

    Well done getting to day 4 is great use the support of your encourageing friends it will be a huge help to you as for the others try to ignore anything they say against quitting as they may well be jealous that you have the guts to stop while they either can't or won't

    Below is my standard welcome and advice post which I try and give all new members

  • Hard luck on them if they still need to step outside, you will be in the much stronger place soon and you'll be saving a fortune in £££ too.

    The hostility you experienced from the smoking folk is quite normal, its a separation thing sadly, you are not in the little circle of comfort that smokers seek any more and there are some who show their contempt at you leaving their little circle all too obviously. it is jealousy, they've probably tried to quit themselves at some point.. perhaps lasted a few hours.. and if they are really honest with you, they would LOVE to be where you are.

    You keep this quit going, this aint about them, its about you, and what matters to you most here is succeeding, not what they say anyway.

    in 4 weeks time you'll be in an extremely strong place if you follow this course of staying quit.. stay strong, remain strong and you never know, you might surprise them nay-sayers and antagonists enough to make them consider quitting too.

    good on yer!

  • Well done Mark and Beccy - I'm sure you can both do this. The reason I'm so sure is because I did it, and I was the "person least likely to succeed at quitting".

    Great stuff on getting the pub out of the way and just ignore the jealous miseries. Oddly, I found that I missed the company of people I used to smoke with at first but now find that I have nothing at all in common with them. If I bump into them we have nothing to say to each other. And they smell. I certainly don't miss them anymore.

    Nice choice of bike btw. Just sold my 955i. Boo hoo.

  • Well done!

    Well done Mark on braving a night out so early in your quit. Thats brilliant.

    It's great that you are feeling so positive, that will be a great help to you. Keep up the good work.

    Beccy well done to you too :) Its a great feeling seeing your levels go down. Just wait til all the other good changes kick in, sense of smell, food tasting better, all your clothes smelling better, skin looking brighter.....the list goes on and on.

    It really is good to see you guys getting to day 4.

  • Pub on day 3 is good work indeed - if you can do that you can face anything!

    Good luck and well done from another day 4-er!
