Day 11 for me !!!!!!!!!

Dear All.

Just to let everone know Am up today 11 days smoke free ,Yes.

Can't say it has been easy,but not all bad.

Yesterday went for a meal and realized I would be in a hurry to finish just to get outside for a cig.

Also today when on my daily walk I began to speed up towards home, Hang on a minute I though why am I in such of a hurry yes, you have guess for a cig.

Oh course I did not be weid what a hold a habit has over you.

Well good luck to all those who have got this far and are just setting out.

I am pleased with myself,but so easy to have a cig again.

    Well done Terri!! Great achievement!

    I know what you mean about setting aside cig time. I'm doing that too even though I don't smoke any more :D.

    Yep, I'm on day 12 and going mostly very well. I have tough moments but I'm powering through them :). The thought of going through the first few days again is enough incentive!! I'm using patches so I'm still putting nicotine into my system, but the 'nipping off for a cig' mentality is weakening. I think my next major challenge will be in four weeks' time when I step down to lower yield patches.

    How's things going for you Terri? I admire you going CT. I don't think I'd have the fortitude to quit the addiction AND the habit at the same time.

  • Thanks for all the support I do really appreciate it.Support sort of keeps you going.

    Captain, Cant say it has been easy but in reality if I had have used patches I feel it would not make me feel as though I had got of nicotine.

    One day at the time.

    I am in no smoking house so that helps.Last time I gave up it was when a friend came to stay I lapsed not this time I hope.

    Keep going every one.

    I'm finding this forum invaluable Terri. Even if I don't post, there's always useful tips and reminders to keep me going.

    Keep strong. You're doing great!! It doesn't matter how we make the journey. The important thing is to arrive safely :). If your way's working for you, then that's all that matters.
