Day 3

Well reached day three and I am relishing the challenge of getting through today.

- I noticed I woke straight up this morning, didn't feel tired or lethargic at all which is fantastic.

- Did not crave a morning ciggie today which I have the first two days

- Feel in a great mood today, first two days I was neither up or down but today I defiantly feel great, whether is is down to not smoking or I just got up in a good mood who knows.

- I have saved at least £18, and 60 fags not smoked.

- All the nicotine is leaving my body, probably gone within the next 24 hours.

these are just a few small reasons I could think of off the top of my head today but it may help for some on day 1 & 2 to read they are pretty close.

I will see how I am between 6 o'clock & 7 tonight which seems to be the most difficult so far but even that hour is getting easier to abstain from.

So glad you are nearly past the nicotine withdrawal. It is true that you start to feel the affects of quitting immediatley. Keep it up!

ah, that waking up and feeling great, that's the kind of reward that quitting gives you, and to be getting all those benefits in just 3 days, superb!


My last quit which was at the end of may it took about a week before I noticed any changes, last night I woke up at like 5 in the morning and was able to get up and go for a drink of water without the urge to light up. Then when the alarm goes at seven I was straight up, felt magic.

Looking forward to football tomorrow then I will go back to my swiming next week.


off out for a run in a bit it is such a lovely night, defiantly getting easier at night.

I have always been more of an evening smoker and in the evenings is always when I falter.

each night it gets easier not to have a ciggie and I just hope I can stay clean of the fags. I once managed 12 weeks when I was at college before a relapse one Saturday evening.

I am taking nothing for granted at the moment.
