Hi all Im a newbie to the forum and quitting smoking
Firstly my quit has been long overdue and am so ashamed to say that Im 20 weeks pregnant. Its taken me this long because I hold my hands up, I wasnt ready and just did not have the willpower even for my baby girl, but Thursday night its like I saw the light and made the decision to finally quit!
I had 4 puffs Friday morning then stubbed it out and threw all my fags, ashtrays and lighters in the bin.
I have decided to go Cold Turkey with no NRT because I feel its right for me (completely respect people who use any method to quit) I just dont want to be nicotine dependant anymore and for me going CT is the fastest route.
So far :
Day 1 (Fri) wasnt too bad, I was a little bit jittery, keep wanting to play with my fingers so sucked on lollies practically all day. I was a little on edge in the evening and resorted to sucking on a pen lid as if I was smoking.
Day 2 (Sat) morning was great not really having cravings until I had been up 2 hours then had the few thoughts of wanting one, of course didnt give in. Then bang 2pm came and I was like a demon snapping and getting angry even at the smallest thing like running out of ketchup lol I then got really upset and cried alot (until I was red and puffy eyed) pregnancy hormones probably didnt help. I was ok then until the evening when I got a bit down and depressed but as soon as I was tired I felt fine (I never smoked when tired).
Day 3 (Sunday/today) so far so good Im quite surprised actually but a little on edge that this may be the calm before the storm. Woke up at 9am had breakfast and bottled water. I havent really thought about them too much but then saying that Ive been busy with the kids today and we had the in laws over for roast so I suppose thats taken my mind off them.I am actually quite surprised at so far how easy today has been and I sooo wish the next few days will be like today as I havent felt too stressed at all.
How is everyone else doing ?
