No Smoking Day

I can't believe it

Much to my surprise (and yours I'm sure) I actually made it to day 3. This is the big one, The one where the nicotine is out of your system and it becomes a mind over matter type match. My brain isn’t to big so luckily for me a cigarette isn’t either. I may stand a decent chance at this match - lol. While I do have some pretty severe moments where I would do almost anything for just one puff (sounds good right) I know exactly where that will leave me.

At 10:00 PM tonight it will be 72 hours since my last cigarette. I know it is still 16 hours from now but I am hopeful I can make it. I just need to avoid everyone one more day.

I have a little advantage this morning. I woke up with a sore throat, sneezing, stuffy nose followed by runny nose, teeth hurt and right arm pain. It is the kind of feeling where you just don’t feel like smoking. All I can say is go ahead nicotine make on last stand. I know that I will start feeling a little better every day just as I did the last time I quit

As always I wish everyone good luck today. With any luck I will be moving on up to the day 4 sector tomorrow.

Thank you "im a quitter",

I do a lot better with staying quit by avoiding people and luckily I'm in a position that I can easily leave on a moment’s notice from any place that I am. I think that is going to be my strong card to play.

I was saying yesterday that it is embarrassing having a "Senior Member" title and only being 3 days into a quit so that is going to be another strong hold for me.

Good luck with your quit

Then change it :) Go to 'User CP' and change to what you want it to read .. how about 'Senior Moment' ;)

Thumbs up to your Day 3 :cool:

Hey there!

Was looking for this post this morning... Totally knew you could do it!

Same as I know you'll be posting in day 4 tomorrow :)

IAQ - my first day was a hangover as well! A pretty deadly alcohol AND cig one - prolly had about 2 packs in the course of the evening. Made it soooo easy.. the rest of the days didn't pass as easily unfortunately! But hey, mind over matter, right sparky?

While I will do my best to not disappoint anyone today it has been a struggle. Thinking of leaving work and coming back tonight when nobody is around.

I think I'm just having a bad day. I keep telling myself that this stuff would have happened if I was smoking or not but coming up with solutions has been a little harder today than most.

I know just ride through it
