Another Newbie Quitter Here

Hello everyone.

I quit at 6pm last night so although this is the second day, it's less than 24 hours so I'm posting in the Day 1 Forum.

I'm using patches and so far so good. My thoughts are drawn to smoking quite often but I'm battering 'em off :D.

This is my second 'serious' attempt. My last one was 7 years ago and lasted 9months. I fell into the trap of being comfortable with quitting and that just one won't hurt. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! :mad:. I won't be making that mistake again.

Anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself and the very best of luck to all other quitters!!.

  • Hi Captain Crunch!

    It's great that you're trying again... specially after having done 9 months before! At least now you know the danger of getting too comfortable first hand!

    Keep going strong and battering them cravings off!

  • Hey captain crunch (great name!)

    as our lovely Sofia said it is great you are trying again and you know the dangers of letting your guard down. At least you can move on from that taking the experience of how it went wrong with you.

    As you know in the early days the thoughts of smoking are almost always at the forefront of your mind but that does subside.

    Good luck and keep posting oh and read, read, read this forum and links in peeps signatures - it massively helps (bad english I know)!

    Take care :)

    Thanks SLB.

    They do say that you learn a little more with each quit attempt. I really could kick myself for weakening 7 years ago, but at least I know I can't do that this time without going back to square one!!

    I'm even more determined to succeed this time!!

    Thanks Tinkerbell (loving your name too :)).

    I know where I went wrong last time and I won't be letting that happen again.

    I have to say that so far it's really not too bad, but I'm also very aware of how easy it'd be to go to the shop a buy a pack. Such frivolous thoughts shall be forever banished!!

    I've had a quick browse around and there are plenty of inspirational posts and signatures here. I think they'll be a huge help.

    Good luck with your continued quit!!

  • Awww - you can call me Tinks ;)

    Hey at least your name aint Captain Hook - I'd be worried if it was :D

    :p

    Thanks Tinks :).

    You can call me Cap, Cap'n, Captain, Crunchie, or anything you like really!! :p.

    Yeah, Captain Hook wouldn't be such a good name to use on this forum :D.

  • I know we just spoke on my thread but I didnt know you had previously been quit for 9 months. Just shows you can never be complacement.

    For now I am only going to worry about today and today I am not going to smoke.

    I won't make that mistake again!! I was so furious with myself :mad:.

    The bit I've highlighted is the way to go Silver. Like any huge task, break it down into smaller manageable pieces. You can do this!!

    Good luck!!

    Makes me think of cereal so much I am gonna have some! Even though we don't get captn crunch in UK as far as I am aware I still know all about it from American TV lol.

    Stock up on cereal, you'll know better than most if you made 9months before, but munchies will start soon *nomnomnomnomnomnomnom*
