Day 7

Ok, so i joined this knowing that others are going through the same thing i'm going through. I am the only smoker in my huge family and they all think im a joke. Being they have never smoked, they have no clue how hard it is to stop. I have been smoking since i was 13 and am now 28. Im a pack a day smoker. Today is day 7, i took my last puff on feb. 12. And decided to quit cold turkey. I couldnt stand to sit there anymore and lecture my 8 yr old on how bad it is to smoke and there is mommy lighting one up......no sense!! So, the last two days have been the worst for me. I cant focus, cant sleep, dreaming of smoking (now that woke me up laughing!!). As far as depressed, not much of that. My problem is focusing and keeping my hands and mouth busy. Well i guess thats it, gotta get back to work. Good luck.

  • Day 7 is good well done all the things you're finding at the moment are normal and they'll all pass fairly quickly OK

    I'm sorry your family are not supporting you I know that as non smokers they don't understand but they could at least try and support you through this and a well done now and then would help a lot

    Love

  • Thank you

    YEA, I THOUGH MY FAMILY WOULD BE MORE SUPPORTIVE. BUT THANK GOD I STUMBLED UPON THIS SITE!!! I FOUND THAT SUNFLOWER SEEDS ARE REALLY GOOD, THEY KEEP MY MOUTH BUSY.....:p

  • Heya sending you an invite to join february grp with the rest of us who quit in feb, so you can talk to people at similar stages of your quit. Im on day 8 myself so i think ur doing superbly to have almost made it to your 3rd week.

    I have a similiar situation when it comes to family. Pretty much all my family and friends smoke lol so iv been a bit of a social pariah this week and distanced myself from smokers where possible but iv still been around a few here and there just to reinforce the fact to myself that i can be around them lol

    But if you truley want to do it which i presume you do, you can regardless of who smokes around you.

    First thing my mum asked when i told her id quit was, want a roll up? UNHELPFUL! but i refused like a good girl lol :p

    Nice that you're doing it for good reasons and im sure ul do brilliantly!
