Day 3

Last two days were awful, but I decided that I wasn't going to attempt anything other than going to work, sleeping, washing, eating and Futurama-ing. Today I feel good - calm, nice energy level, not craving a cigarette. Which is a surprise as I thought I would have to put up with this for a lot longer.

Making mental effort to imagine life as a non-smoker. Have been getting back into fitness lately, so this helps support my self image as a healthy person, rather than a smoker.

Have quit drinking to support my recovery, and must avoid caffeine. Not a routine drinker, few cups a week, but had one this morning and mmmm, had to let that urge go, pretty close to asking a collegue, but thought NO. NOT THIS TIME.

So yeah, today is going well, but am ever -alert to my mood and cravings.

Reasons I want to give up are : constant anxiety, rough sounding voice ( I love singing and don't have the same vocal command or range or smoothness when I am smoking), more energy, improve my discipline and self-control. Symbolic of moving forward with my life.

This is about the hundredth time I've quit, so I'm not going to get all silly and think I've cracked it.

Best to all

  • well done

    Day 3 for me also and its not been as bad as I thought.

    I love my coffee and that was the one thing I was dreading first cup of the day without the fag. but oh my god my coffee tastes great and I've noticed that I smell so much better I can smell fabric softner instead of stale smoke on the downside my car stinks. Think i'll have to get it valeted.

    Well done here's to day 4. Lets hope that goes as well.;)
