Day 2

I've arrived at day 2. I knew it was going to be hard last night and even tougher when I woke up this morning... but all that matters is that I haven't smoked.

Today it's been hard to focus at work. I felt lightheaded this morning, and almost had a cry (emotions are haywire). I'm still very determined.

Right now I'm feeling irritable. I just want to go home and hide from the world and its pettiness. But it's 3pm, not too long to go and I can walk out of this stuffy office and breathe in fresh air into my healing lungs.

Today, reading about stopping smoking on this forum and on the internet has helped A LOT. It reinforces why I hate smoking

....Taking some deep breaths now since a huge pile of work has just landed on my desk. Deep breaths...

  • Well done Millie, the first day can be the hardest for many.

    Keep that determination, continue to educate yourself about quitting and before long the days turn to weeks and the weeks months etc.

    Keep focused on your goal, you can do it!

  • Day 25 for me Millie.

    Take it one minute, one hour, one day at a time.........it does get easier.

    And there is literally tons of inspiration and support on this forum.

  • Hi Millie,

    You've made a great start. It's horrible at first, I know. Hard to think about anything else at all. But you can do this, it is achievable, honestly. Just take it one hour at a time to start with. Just tell yourself you won't smoke right now. The next hour can take care of itself. Sips of cold water, lollies, try and go for walks if you can. Use this place as much as you like, it's a godsend and we all know where you're coming from.

    Hang tough! You won't regret it.
