Tomorrows the big day.

Hi everyone,

Im new. I have tried to do this twice before and cant seem to get past three months. Im aware of all the mistakes i made last time. I cant smoke anymore, its not doing me any favours. The first time i quit i used this forum which was amazing. Then i went for a drink, and had a ciggerette. Then i felt too guilty to come back on here because i felt like a cheat.

The second time i did it alone, and my boyfriend and my friends were just telling me to smoke because all i ever complained about were the cravings.

So now im back, and i have my patch on and im ready to wake up tomorrow and fight all the cravings i have and beat this.

Please help me, im going to need it. All the people im surrounded by smoke and dont support me at all.

Thank you,

Love Laura xxx

All the very best to you both, you can do it! Just promise that you won't smoke today, that's how I managed at 1st - 1 day at a time, only on day 9 myself!

Hope your days go smoothly!

Very best of luck to you both. Keep thinking positive and find or do things to make you smile. You will beat this nasty habit this time, take it one day at a time, they will soon add up.

Good luck to both of you. Just take one day at a time. Let us know how you're getting on.

Remember you have the guts (and the sense) to try, millions don't. You are undoubtedly doing the right thing and it gets better, and easier as time goes by.

Day 1 nearly over - yipee

This has been been my day 1 (and my 1st post) and Ive been 23 hours without a cigarette so far. Yippeee.

I am using the Microtabs and the inhaler ( as a top up).

Today has been pretty tough. Really agitated at work but its been worse since I came into the house this evening. Staying off the phone cause I always smoke when chatting and not having any cups of tea - cause that always makes me have a fag too.

Im worried tomorrow is going to be really bad. Going to check on the day 2ers and see how bad it is - good luck everyone.

Hey Laura

Today is my day one and I'm 23 hours in without a fag. Its been pretty bad but Im using the microtabs and inhaler and they seem to have taken the edge off most of the day.

If I can do this - you can too - I havent gone 24 hours without a cigarette for 19 years (OMG) but Im determined to get to tomorrow smoke free

Good Luck

Laura, 5mol<er & Melissa - how are you three. Usually we all find the first few days the worst and the hardest so hang in their guys. :)
