Quite pleased i have made it to day 2!

I had my last cigarette yesterday at 7am, I am now quite proud that i have made it to day 2 with the help of nicotine patches. The cravings were ok yesterday but today i have had many! I am glad I am at work today as i can pass them with other things to do! :)

Top banana - good for you - you should be proud. I am proud of you - 2 days doesnt seem like a lot until you try it without the ciggies - it is definitely an achievement! Keep going :)

Hi Pat,

Welcome to the mad...erm, the forum :)

You got advice on another thread about reading etc but I also noticed that you wanted to add info onto your sig.

Look up left and click on User CP and you'll see a list of options. One of them allows editing sig.

Well done on day 2 and look forward to day 3 :cool:

Well done day twoers - keep at it, try and distract yourself and keep busy to keep those cravings at bay. Change your routine, your chair, your drink, anything to keep the cravings at bay, it has worked so far for me. Best advice I can give is stay positive, dont mope about loss and pat yourself on the back for each hour, minute and day you are smoke free

cravings also seem worse for me

day two for me aswell......leaving for work this morn without having a cigarette was tricky....felt a little lost... just wandering round before i finally told myself i may as well just go....

however... did find i was able to hang the washing out in the same amount of time it'd take me to roll a cigarette and smoke it! Loving saving time!
