Day 4 and quietly chuffed

Hi all

I've been reading this forum since my day 1 (08/02) and decided it was time to stop lurking and get involved...

This is my 8th (I think) attempt to quit - other attempts have ranged from the non-committed (4 weeks) to the pretty successful (18 months), so I feel pretty well prepared this time, but not complacent!

Feeling ok at the moment, but evenings and weekends are my downfall - have managed the pub already, on day 2, but only for an hour and not with smokers. From experience, I know that one is best left until later, for me at least.

This time feels different to the last few quit times, so I'm crossing my fingers, re-reading Allan Carr, keeping myself busy and positive and hoping for the best!

Good luck everyone - we will all succeed if we want to.

well done i find it helps reading post on here you know you are not alone...

fingers xxxx for you



well done Lottie you're doing really well It's good that you are aware of your triggers. Keep up the good fight we're all behind you,



Thanks June and I hope you're feeling chuffed with yourself too.

It has helped reading all the posts - and funny when you hear of so many things you go through yourself, like you say, nice to know you are not alone -beats keeping a diary!


Shout it out

I think you should be loudly chuffed not quietly chuffed!!!

Well done and good luck from a fellow day 4er!



Thanks Marie and hello Beccy day 4-er!

I would like to be loudly chuffed but everyone in my office/friends/bf have all heard it before so I think I would get a whole bunch of rolling eyeballs if I banged on about it too much!

Still I know I'm doing well, and now I know about this forum, I can be as chuffed as I like :D

Hope all is going well for you too - I thought day 3 was going to be the killer but all seems to be good so far apart from the usual nutty dreams and feeling spaced out... onwards and upwards!
