Day 4 getting better?

Okay, day 4, Ive not got the shakes at all and when I woke up I didnt think about missing a cig as much, but on my way to work, I was thinking, why am I doing this? but that thought has atleast passed.

My wife has quit cold turkey and she is really doing bad, passing around the house and very irritable, while I am on the patch its helped greatly

question is when do you stop thinking about that morning cigarette????:confused:

Thanks for everyone help....

  • Morning,

    Glad to see you feeling a bit brighter today. The only problem I see with the patch is they are 5, 14 & 21mg (or whatever the particular brands is) and very few people would have that exaxct amout of nicotine every day so your body needs a few days to adjust to it.

    When do you stop mising the morning smoke?, I suppose it differs for everyone. I just noticed one day about an hour after getting up I hadn't thought about it. But sometimes, even now I wake up and get that fleeting thought of smoking but its just that fleeting

    I don't miss smoking anymore, I don't think I ever actually missed 'it' just my comfort blanket.

    Stay strong

    Thank you...this seems to be the same for me, an hour after after getting up, the feeling goes away.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Im trying to stay strong! :)

  • on this try, I am avoiding smokers (just for the time being)

    what has been working for me is doing exercises.

    Only drawback today is occasionally, Im asking myself, why Im putting myself through this as I was a happy smoker...:confused:

    However I will persever (and retake spelling too lol)

    You'll get to the point where you realise you really weren't a happy smoker, I swear! I used to feel the same. But your mindset changes.

    In the meantime I recommend you have a read of this:

    Keep strong, it's TOTALLY WORTH IT.

  • @Forndog Well done on beating the 4th day without a smoke, I also quit on the 8/03/11 and have to say its easier than it seems. You just need to overcome the physical side and the rest is kind of easy. Good luck to everyone and remember to oversee the negatives of smoking and benefits of not smoking...

  • I agree with Hels. If you're really honest with yourself, you will realize there are no happy smokers. It's nicotene brainwashing.

    my morning cravings have been replaced with

    THANK GOD I DONT HAVE TO SMOKE TODAY.

    used to think i was a happy smoker but it was a flaming nuisance.

  • Day 7

    Well its now day 7 for me, tonight at 22 I have made it a full 7 days or a full week! This weekend was quite bad as I started to develope cold symptoms but feel better today.

    yesterday, my mind was playing tricks on me, I started to question the ability to be smoke free the rest of my life looking posts that soo many people have failed (including myself in the past) but I feel soo strong now and will do it!

    One of the mind tricks was if smoking wasnt so expensive, would I be quitting now? probably not, but the new benifits are actually noticeable, as when I wake up in the morning, Im not pushing snooze like five times, Im not wheezing in bed and more importantly, not snoring either....nor do I stink either. Ive also download the app quitnow and have saved 13hrs by not smoking and saved £33

    I also noticed that I didnt instantly have that morning feeling for a cig as soon as I woke up too which is a boost.

  • Day 6 for me and dare I say it Day 5 was not TOO bad so hoping that Day 6 is ok too.

    I know it's early days 'cos my previous quits failed after about 8 weeks. But staying focused and positive. Here's hoping this time will be 'the one'! ;)

  • Im sure it will Julee, just as long as we realize that that we will never be strong enought to have that ONE cigarette... I know that sounds bad, but its true.

    One day at a time...and good for you on doing six days, bet you feel better/..
