day three is much better than days 1 and 2

Lets hope I am not getting lulled into a false sense of security, but day 1 and 2 were a nightmare (couldn't even be bothered to speak to anyone) but today (day three) I am feeling quite bright!

Went to the shop for the first time today and didn't buy any fags - Thats a first!

Just been advised about this site so decided to join.

Hello everyone

I am Helen age 33, have smoked for 20 years so it has just about defined who I am. I have decided to quit mostly for my kids who are 8 and 4, but also cause my husband has agreed to buy me a puppy if I succeeed for 4 months!!:)

    regards Carol

    oh just remembered you can join the january group in social groups if you want (it can help) click on quick links and then social groups

  • Well done for keeping going even though you found it really tough. I cant count the number of times i've given in on day 1 because it was hard! (trying to have a more positive mindset this time)

    It's good you're aware that you dont want to get lulled into false sense of security too. I'm loving the forum - it has really helped me get through day 1 relatively pain free! Keep coming back:)

  • Thank you both. It is nice to speak to people in similar situations.

    I did nearly kill my hubby when on Sunday (Day 1), he said that ME giving up smoking was hard for him too, cause I was a bit snappy!!!!!! I mean DIVORCE or what?

    But then he promised me the puppy so I forgave him.

  • Hard for him???! Grrrrrr:mad: But then puppy? ahhhhh:)

    My other half has been odd too - he maintains that it's entirely my fault that he smoked (we have stopped together) - he said the only reason he smoked was cos i was smoking and it was too hard for him to give up when i continued to smoke.

    I get that it would have been harder, but i dont think it's fair to blame it all on me - he still smoked if i wasnt there/he was out with friends etc. Now think he's feeling the widthdrawal - which i dont think he was expecting...cos his smoking was my fault - nothing to do with addiction you see?:rolleyes:

    PS - what puppy will you get?
