Day 6

Hi All

After 18 years of 20 a day habit I gave up on new years day deciding to go cold turkey. Coincidently i came down with one hell of a cold that morning and it knocked me out for a couple of days and i just could not physically smoke! So now I am feeling better and the cravings are coming and i have that urge to smoke.

With all the nicotine out of my system, I really dont want to turn to patches or anything like that, so I will just ride this out.

Was in the pub last night watching footy with smoker friends and i was surprisingly fine. Yes, i could of smoked but just did not fancy it. I am still feeling bits of this cold so maybe it still could have something to do with that and i currently have no energy whatsoever.

Anyway, good luck to all. I am looking forward to reaping the benefits in next couple of weeks!

Struggling with the sleep disturbances but (i don't want to speak too soon) the cravings don't seem to be so bad today........ so far :rolleyes:


Well done, takes a LOT of willpower to not accpet a smoke when you are around smokers so well done you!!!

If you can do that you can do anything! Stay strong!
