OK, I'm here!

so, day 2 begins -

This morning i woke up to find that there wasn't a small elephant sitting on my chest like normal :D

I jump out of bed with the alarm clock ring, switch it off and yawn..... (a full yawn and stretch!) NOT a half stifled yawn to stop the pain in my chest gripping me. :D

So here i am sitting at my pc (same routine as normal minus the ciggys)

but things i have noticed - stuff smells!

not all bad mind, but wow! 24 hrs really make that much of a difference!

no morning chest pain, i can smell things and god yes i do have a craving right now!

But i haven't taken my niquitin mini yet! ;) seeing how long i can go without one lol

Hi :)

YES things do smell lol. i've been thinking the exact same thing, give it a week and we'll be going upto everyone and everything commenting on smell.

Are you still coughing up in the morning?

Never been one to do a lot of coughing (unless i get a cold then I'm non-stop) though i do see to do a heck of a lot of throat clearing though :(

Not so much this morning!

anyway - on with the day !

Gratz on making it to day two, just keep doing what you did yesterday to stop yourself smoking and it's all good.

I know it's not easy but it is achievable, best of luck.

Hi Andy, seeing the benefits already, that is wonderful.

It is said that craves only last a max of 3 mins, it may seem like longer :eek: but it is only 3 mins, so distract yourself, post on here, make a cuppa whatever works for you, and it will pass.

YAY go to the gym, you'll feel loads better, i'm sure exercise kills off the evil nicotine. Have a real good sweat and open those lungs!

Good luck ;)
