Newbie on day seven

Hi all :)

My name is Kaylie and I'm on day 7 :D I really didnt think that I would make it this long TBH, but now that I have Im going to carry on!

I have Quit cold turkey, with lollies for extra support I used to smoke 12/15 roll ups a day (with filters).

I am doing fine for the most part, but I dont think my mind has caught up with me yet, as I keep thinking " oh, I'll just finish this and then go and have a fag. um, hang on I cant! oh bum :( "

or something to that effect! lol

I must confess I had a blip on day 4 but I refuse to let it stop me! :)

Its nice to meet you all

  • Hi :)

    Good going on a week smoke free already. Yes, those little habit smokes do take a while to stop popping up in our thoughts, even actions.

    I'm 5 months not smoking and a low want will come over me for a smoke which can be easily ignored. Real hard cravings don't appear now really.

    Turn that thought of " oh, I'll just finish this and then go and have a fag. um, hang on I cant! oh bum "

    to " oh, I'll just finish this and then go and have a fag. Oh, hang on I don't want to, I don't smoke any more" . Keep saying that and it becomes second nature to feel it and believe in on some level. It does help :) Supporting others also is great and helps to reinforce your quit.

    If you haven't already, take time to read the links in some folks signatures and know whats in store for you along the road.

    Some folk feel an empty void, a hole of some sort being left when quitting. Should you feel that, get yourself busy with good fun positive stuff. Replace a negative habit with a positive one and don't let yourself feel deprived by not smoking. It's a good thing you've done now.

    All the best with your continued quit, look forward to following your progress

  • Hi Kaylie..

    Congrats and well done hunny, you are doing superb :)


  • Hi Kaylie

    Well done you and congratulations on becoming a non smoker!

    It took ages for my brain to catch up with my quit as well - I'd go out to meet friends and would rifle through my bag for ages, before realising I was looking for my fags... daft cow.

    Good luck with your quit. :)

  • Hi Kaylie and welcome!

    Good on you for hitting the week mark, it's a big achievement! This forum is great, it's always nice to know that someone else is feeling as bad as you are - makes a big difference:)

    I keep checking my pocket for a lighter before I go out - used to hate being caught out with fags and no light!!

    I'm on the lollies as well, although gonna have to cut back now I'm on day 7 as I think I've probably put on about 7 pounds in 7 days:eek:
