Day 3 is hard!

Ok, so I am now on day 3 and yesterday I was fine even though the canteen vending machine was refusing to part with it's coffee (as awful as it is I need it)

So now not only do I have to face not smoking on a morning, which is my most needed time, I also have to deal with no coffee :( :(

Sorry to come on here whining and I know it's only my 3rd day but i've never got past 2 days so this is really good for me and I don't want to spoil it for myself by giving in.

  • You done the right thing coming on here Shaz, it's good to 'sound off' to people who know exactly what you're going through, it also helps to get that frustration out of you.

    The no coffee scenario is only temporary, go outside and scream, shout, run around naked, lick the dregs out of the smoking bin or whatever you need to do but DON'T give in.

    We're here to listen, advise and support you....... you're not on your own!.

  • Thanks Pete :)

    I've just managed to score some REAL coffee, not the vending machine type however the filtered type Mmmmmmm This is gonig to sort my head out and get me back on track!

    I know everyone gets bad days and I am prepared for these, I am even willing to not drink on Friday night and Fridays are my 'I've finished a week at work it's time to party' nights :)

    I think the people at work know that no ciggy Shaz is one thing but no ciggy & no coffee Shaz is a person they Don't want to see hehe!

  • Glad you got some coffee, that was vital!

    All the experts say that day 3 is peak nicotene withdrawal, so it's bound to be a difficult day today. Get through it one crave, one hour at a time, and every time you get past one give yourself a big pat on the back. You can do this.

  • Thanks hun,

    I know you have all been through it so you can apreciate how tough it is.

    I am getting there, vending machine is still out of order, however I have my friends supplying me with filter coffee so I at least have something to help the cravings. Also my special 2nd daddy has bournville chocolate which is really helping me through the cravings :)

    Last night I ate a massive plate of Gammon, home cut chunky chips done in the oven with a fried egg & peas. If that wasn't enough an hour after I ate profritteroles (sorry for spelling) and spray cream... this will surely help me to put on the weight I am so desperate to gain!!!

    Yes it was delicious :) :) :)

  • Ouch! I am now suffering from headaches... I am guessing that as it is day 3 that this is some sort of nicotine withdrawl sympton and I will have to put up with it.

    anyone have any idea how long this will last for?

    Thanks

  • Until you share your "massive plate of Gammon, home cut chunky chips done in the oven with a fried egg & peas" :D

    Awhhhhhh.... that means I'll have to put up with it for a long time yet :D

    I think maybe another plate of the above may make me feel better :p

    You make me chuckle Pete! thanks :)

  • Day 3 is typically the hardest for me. You've got the full force of the nicotine withdrawal on top of the psychological cravings, it's most unpleasant!

    I woke up last Wednesday (my day 3) & could literally feel my temper flaring from the instant i opened my eyes!

    The good news is, after today the chemical withdrawal disappears pretty quickly, leaving you with just the habit itself to break.

    Don't worry hunni, you will get through it, you know what it is like and that the feeling doesn't last forever so it should be a little easier for you this time round :)
