My Wk 2!

I never thought I'd see the day! I'VE REACHED WK 2!!! :D

I know it's only Day 8, but technically, it's Wk 2! Feeling good, feeling amazed that I've managed so far and feeling greatful to you all for your support and advice.

So far I've noticed a huge difference in smell, taste, breathing, the amount of sleep I need. Stopped using any NRT on Thursday night. Friday was a struggle but Saturday was ok... So far so good today and feeling positive.

Good luck to you all, keep going, stay strong and thank you again for all your help! :)

  • Well done M,

    Week 2 is brilliant. You sound very positive & full of energy. When you start to see all the positive things come from NOT smoking it helps to drive you on.

    Have a good week 2 :D

  • Hi M

  • Well done buddy!

    Good work M! :D

    You're brave coming off the NRT. Go You!

    Hey - we're both on day 9 now ;) Doesn't time fly when you're having fun :rolleyes: LOL!

  • Day 10 now and I'm struggling! It seems to have got harder the last 24 hours and I don't know why! :( My head's been pounding, I'm suddenly shattered and I just want to curl up and sleep/smoke! :eek:

    Anyone got any words of wisdom?! Hope everyone's doing well! It's fantastic having the support of all you fellow-quiters and having this forum to share things with you all.

  • Stay strong through the ups and downs

    Hi M

    Bad days or bad parts of days will happen, but there will be more good days now than hard ones. Your so far in and off the NRT too! You know it's so worth it to stay strong and hold off the Nicodemon.

    Drink loads of water and keep making those choices not to smoke, hope your feeling better really soon.

    Kind regards


  • Hey M

    It's a stinger isn't it when you feel like everythings been going fine, then you get hit with feeling lousy? I think the problem can be that because things are going so generally well for me, I expect to keep finding it easier when the reality is there's bound to be hard times as we unpick all those years of habit and behaviour and it isn't a straight line!..but just 'cos a day starts off bad doesn't mean it stays that way. Yesterday afternoon I wanted to cry. Two hours later, everything felt easier... cold turkey can be something of an emotional rollercoaster!! Just ride it out - it'll pass, and when you're having a good patch, revel in it, you've earned it!!


  • Hi M,

    I am sorry you are feeling below par today. Just hold on to the fact that you have done brilliantly & cold turkey. Wish I could have done. It may be due to not smoking anymore but it could be you would have felt like this anyway, just one of those c**p days :p

    Keep going, you are doing so well :D

  • Awwwwww, thank you everyone! I know I don't want to smoke and it's not the answer, I'm just having a lousy day!! Just need to kick my bum into gear and snap out of it!

    I don't want to smoke, I don't want to give up the last 10 days that have been so good! Just feel a bit down today but I'm sure that would have been the case whether smoking or not!!!

    You are all such a support to me, thank you sooooo much. I hope I can offer you all some support too. :)
