new here, day 18

Hi all,

Have been lurking around the site for some time now, Have found the site to be a great help to me in this trying time!

Anyway, On day 18 0f quitting and things seem to be getting better. I am on a twelve week program through my doctor, Its called IQUIT and only launched in hertfordshire about 4 weeks ago. On a course of patches which have really helped, The Iquit program also send me a text twice aday which boosts my confidence.

This is a great site! Good luck to all you quitters as well.

  • Weezie - 18 days is so great :) Keep with it as you've been doing, whatever it takes to stay quit :) Glad you've found this website useful... I really don't know how other quitters have managed without it. I know it was (and still sometimes!) is a massive 'friend' to lean on!

  • Thanks Karri,

    The first week was pretty awful, the second week not as bad, I stupidly decided to take my patch of on day 15 and see how I felt, I thought i was doing pretty well until my husband rugby tackled me to the floor and slapped a patch on me. (I was apparently being unreasonable) So the patches are staying firmly on now.

  • Thanks slb

    As soon as I start to crave I come on here. It really helps to know that there are other people out there that are going through the same thing.

    LOL :D

    I'm sure you were only mildly tetchy, how unnecessary of your husband!:D

    Welcome to the site, and really well on done 18 days.!

  • PMSL :D Normally unreasonable to men means that their tea is a bit late or you had the balls to hold the remote :D

    If the patches keep you all happy then thats all that matters :)

    Don't forget having the audacity to adjust the temp on the central heating thermostat. I can hear that being done from 100 yards!!:D

  • Welcome and well done Weezie :D

  • Hey wheezie - I'm on day 18 today too. I've only had 1 crave today so far and things seem to be getting better for me too.

    Chin up - it's the weekend! Stay strong quit brother/sister!

  • Hi ~Weezie,

    Well done for all ur perseverance so far.......be proud of yourself... ha! some of the comments are funny .....my kinda humour!

    This is a good place to hang out if the urge gets in the way ...at least i find it so ......just a case of being able to divert the attention .....and you know the real good thing is that if we can learn certain behaviours .....we sure as hell can unlearn them!

    keep goin!

    oh yeah and get smart and get even for the rugby tackle!

    Sal

  • Thank you all for your support and kind messages, it goes a long way.

    As for said husband... Still thinking of evil things to get him back.
