Hello month 3(DAY 60)!- i made it!!!!
After a terrible week last week (BAD times with stress) i made it to month 3, and am feeling blinkin' FANTASTIC and so glad to be here!
i am on day 60 today(8 weeks and about 3 ish days i think)!!!!
Congratulations Claire, month 3 and still going strong. Glad you're feeling so good.
Claire - you're my hero!!!
So thrilled for you and that things seem to be lifting for you, here's to things just getting better and better from now on
I will always be just 20 days behind you!!!! I remember reading from you when I 1st started and just wishing I could be where you are!
Wonderful to see you climbing up through the milestones Claire :cool:
Well done or resisting the urges and keeping with your quit.
Congrats and best wishes for continued smokefreedom.
You are bounding up the boards now....into month three already. It seems two minutes ago you were counting in days.....
Strong quit you are building my lovely.
Thanks you guys,
i can hardly believe that i am into month 3 already!!
Honestly, i couldnt have done it without the support of all you guys who have been there encouraging me every second of the quit!!
Can't believe you're already in month 3! Doesn't seem like 5 mins since you distracted yourself on the sax thread! Well done to you. Its terrific! X
Excellent stuff....can't quite believe it myself as it does seems that you just started yesterday, but obviously not as now your celebrating day 61 :cool:
Remember to remind the real World about your amazing achievement 'cos you know that it is a fantastic achievement. And around about now the real World have got used to you as a non smoker and not celebrating this epic turnaround as much as they should - remind them and slap them upside their heads if they aren't as supportive as they should be!!
If you read the links then keep doing so. If you haven't so far then look in and read about. Both ways....just read along. A previous member that's now a year plus mentioned about reading ahead of where you are just to get an understanding of what you'll go through. Seems like a good idea and worth a try.
Hi Claire and well bl***y done on reaching your third month, I also had a really bad time round the three month mark, in fact think it was my worst time of quit so far, stress anxiety you name it but you have come through and Im sure will continue to be a non smoker, sorry I have been absent a little just lately but settling in to new house and finding it pretty hectic, speak soon xx
Thanks Fiona and Cav,
i am feeling so much better now.
how is the settling into your new house going?I noticed that a few weeks ago was probably the worst i have had since week 1! But now i have overcome that, all is good again, phew!!!
Cav- i have pretty much read every link of the forum, lol, i used it as distraction/encouragement during the first week or so, just to take my mind off having a ciggie, and confirm my quit- i am so glad i did, as it really did help. However- i have never come across the one about changing amounts of sleep in your signature...is it new or have i just not noticed it before?
Its a really relevant thing to me at the moment, as i have been trying to work out whats going on with my sleeping patterns!
Since quitting i am yet to get rid of that exhausted feeling, and just cannot seem to sleep enough! No matter how much sleep i get, or how little, i wake up exhausted!
Is this still commmon in month 3?
Sorry I missed this one hun... three months hey? Well done you Claire.
With reference to the tiredness thing, most people suffer from this, I think. I have been taking a high dose of vitamin c and a good fish oil and that seems to have helped?
Keep going, Jane and I and the other August quitters are not far behind you!

Excellent news, Claire. I only found out how helpful after my 3 months. But it's never too late I'd recommend changing 'did' to 'does' as even though it does get easier to resist and wholly grasp life free from nicotine there can be occasions that pop up once in a while. Nothing wrong with a bit of reafirmation.
However- i have never come across the one about changing amounts of sleep in your signature...is it new or have i just not noticed it before?
Nope, it's not new...been there for ages. Noticed sleeping and lack of was affecting quite a few members...posted up the link for those that are interested.
Waking up feeling exhausted isn't necessarily common at month 3. As you already know sleep patterns are disrupted when we initially stop smoking but stabilize as we get further into the quit. Each of us have differing experiences...but if you have great concerns then consult with your medical advisor.
Thanks Tink, i cant believe its been so long!!
Cav-you are right, i shouldnt get complacent, i am still an addict, i am just choosing not to smoke.
In regards to the tiredness, i think a lot of it is diet related, so i am going to eat healthily, eat more often, and get exercise! That should help!!
NOT SMOKED for 3 Months, 1 hour, 40 minutes and 3 seconds (92 days or 13 weeks 1 day). I...
for one more here I am now quit for 3 months and 2 days or day 94 or 13 weeks and 2 days they all...
Today I managed to get through day 3 without a single cigarette. At work, I got high fived by someone...
