Ok, so I'm on day 8 after going cold turkey and smoking at least 25 a day and have got through the first week relatively easily( apart from one slip and a few puffs 5 days ago after too many vodka's and lemonades). The good news is that this made me feel so ill it has just re affirmed my wish to stop
I have to say this is a lot easier than using patches, gum or pills, I thought it would be harder but it isn't! I have to thank Alan Carr and 'easy way' for getting me to this point.
The problem I'm having is that I have found the last 2 days more difficult than the first few! The kids are off school and therefore I'm not working which is possbily making it harder. I can't describe this as a desire to smoke because I really don't want to, it's a very strange feeling but I know I'm in danger of talking myself back into smoking! There has been no nicotine in my body for 5 days so this isn't a physical craving is it? I'm determined not to be that stupid but am finding this very annoying having expected any thoughts about cigarettes to be diminishing by now. Any thoughts or advise?
