Day 8

Yey got throught the first week, wasnt that bad actually

Took your advice and have been reading loads, find it really helps you to stay positive and not mope.

Still thinking about cigs most of the time but not enough to give in to the craving.

Havent bothered with patch today, thought I would give Cold Turkey a go, I may be mad !!

Good luck everyone

  • I may be mad !!

    well it will probably feel like you are for a day or two! which is ironic because giving up smoking is likely to be the single sanest decision we will ever make!

    yes, thinking about cigarettes all the time, i still do that!! but that is one of the big reasons for quitting, slowly but surely you will spend less and less time thinking about cigarettes, until one day you will wake up and won't, and that day you will be free.

    best of luck royaldecameron :)

  • A HUGE congratulations on making it this far.

    And, I think, a good decision to wave bye bye to the nicotene while you're feeling strong. Then you know it's out of your system and you can concentrate on permanently altering your mindset.

    I still think about smoking a lot, but not in that constant, obsessive, yearning way I did before. And I still have the odd crave, but they are easily dealt with. I promise you, the path gets smoother and smoother the further you travel.

    Just keep on with the reading, keep reminding yourself why this is the best thing you could possibly be doing. Stay strong, and good luck!!

  • Thank you both for that, came just at the right time. Lack of patches has been hard as the day has gone on, thought about going to the shop more than several times. In the end turned radio up loud and did some ridiculous singing dancing and jumping, seemed to do the trick - better than killing someone lol

    beautiful, you know it only seems ridiculous to the smoker side of you, well done, one day and one dance at a time :)

  • royaldecameron,

    Well done and a massive pat on the back. Ignore those demons any which way you can.

    I remember once, early on in my quit, having three baths in one day just to try and avoid those mischievous nicotine imps. :D
