Day 9 in an hours time!!!!

Its going to plan.As I walk past the corner shop at 10.30pm back from a meal with closest family I hesitate as though there was something i needed to buy.In the past this shop provided me with hundreds of packs of fags(10's)....Now thats HISTORY.....as is my smoking.To Poison Myself and Give In To A Few Stupid Cravings...no way.So Day 9 is around the corner.And another thing -This afternoon provided the perfect STRESS situation for me....BIG STRESS.But I survived without a cigarette.See you on day 10.douglas.j.......PS but it still STINGS(at times),this quit.

  • Well done Douglas, make sure you keep fighting the cravings away.

    Reading your posts, it seems avoiding the smokes is a battle for you, you seem to be doing really well but it 'sounds' like you are a potential 'faller' - I hope I'm wrong and like everyone else I hope you stay smoke free, but is it worth you having a little aid to help you in weak moments ?

    Maybe a lozenger, inhalator or something ?

    I quit cold turkey but that's mainly because my last serious quit (a few years ago) I suffered with the gum (felt sick all the time) so I have a mental fix that all aids will make me sick.

    Your previous quit was successful to a point, how did you make 6 months and what made you fall ?

    I think looking at these things can help, everyone's different obviously.

    Here's hoping you stay quit - good luck :)

    Other than a few slight craves,today has been one further day into my new non smoking lifestyle.Everything is better without cigarettes and am so happy to be rid of this dreadful addiction.I will return on Day 10.
