Day 5

Hi All

Day 5 is here and I cant quite work it out. So far it has been really easy except yesterday and today.

I thought all the nicotine was supposed to have gone and thus no more cravings?

Yesterday I could have started again 2/3 times but resisited the urge.

Today I could happily stab a smoker in the eye and steal his fags!!

Surely it should not be this difficult??

    Morning John

    Well done on stopping smoking and for resisting the urge's and cravings.

    The above quote made me chuckle because it can vary day by day to how people feel when they are no longer getting the Nicofix they are used too. I take it your CT so it may feel at times a little harder but the main thing is not to give in. The Nicotine will be gone by now but the thoughts and habit are still there, remember its early days and you must take it bit by bit, dont try and rush in and try and run before you can walk.

    Remember that you can do this and those urges only last a few moments, get something to keep you busy and keep your mind off of things and before you know it the days will be weeks etc.

    Read others posts and if you need to rant at us please do. Just dont give in to that nasty nicodemon.

    Good luck and it will start to get better, honestly ;)

    It takes Nicotine 3 days to leave your system but 2 weeks to pass the phsyical symptoms of withdrawal. BUT that is the nicotine side of things.

    I have been quit 1 month tomorrow and to quote you 'Today I could happily stab a smoker in the eye and steal his fags!! We are all going to have good and bad days for the considerable future, today for me is a bad day. BUT I will get through it and tomorrow will, hopefully, be a better day.

    Remember one minute, one hour, one day at a time

  • One eyed smokers!

    Hi Again

    You will be pleased to hear that I am feeling much better now - and all the smokers I have seen today have both eyes fully functional!!

    Just thought I would mention it in case you had seen any one eyed smokers and thought of me!!

    Hi John

    I was just thinking, if you have not done so already then why not join the November Quit Group, see link above. Its a great way to catch up with people who have quit at the same time, to get added support and generally just feel there are people there for you.

    Good luck and Mate, no one eyed smokers seen so far today, so well done you ;)

    LOL

  • John - I fully sympathise. I was saved from going to the shop to buy fags today by a flat car battery. Act of god maybe? Maybe it's just my 3 year old who presses all the bloody buttons and switches in the car if he's left alone for more than 5 seconds!

    Anyway - I've been trying to put some new flooring down in the bathroom today - it's not gone well. I've hit my thumb with hammers, sawed my arm and made more mistakes cutting than I can count. The air has been blue, I've been throwing tools arround like confetti and I got to the point where I shouted "RIGHT I'M OFF FOR SOME F*CKIN FAGS RIGHT NOW". Fortunately My wife took the kids to Grandma's for the day to let me get on with it. So when I got in the car and found it had a flat battery, I couldn't actually get down to the shops. So after the inital hopping about swearing in the driveway - I was quite glad of my inquisitive toddler!

    Day 6 is a bad one and no mistake!

    Chin up mate - it could be worse!! :)
