Hi all, found you on Day 3

Hi all,

Nice to meet you all. I found this website because I need people to support me through this!

A bit of background on me... same old story I suppose, I find it easy to quit but I never keep to it. But I've never really PROPERLY tried before.

Anyhow, I thought (about a month ago) that I really wanted to try (I watched the BBC 4 documentary about Bill Hicks). I stopped smoking at work so was down to 1 first thing in the morning then 2 or 3 in the evening UNLESS I was going out on the town, in which case I could smoke a whole pack!

So I bought an electronic cig, just to try it you know... I thought maybe I could replace some cigs with it.

I got it lunchtime on the 25th (so I'd had 1 in the morning) and I haven't had another since!! It satisfies all the cravings perfectly (habitual and physical). I'm very pleased except that I feel like absolute POO today. Really congested and snotty....ergh!!!

Well done on making that decision, you now only have to *not smoke today*

What you are feeling is probably your body starting to clean everything out, or maybe your getting a cold. Go to the doctors and Im sure they will tell you what it is.

Anyway, welcome to the forums. I came here 3 weeks ago as, like you, I needed the support, support you will find in bucketloads, this is like the AA group for nicotine addicts and I certainly wouldnt have got to the end of week 3 without the support the lovely people on this site give to all of us.

Keep posting and talking and reading and you will succeed.

Hi quitter and well done for getting to Day 3:D You will find some physical symptoms in the early days. All part of the healing process. I have had terrible sore throats and I thought my nose would never stop running!! But it does start to clear up so bear with it and enjoy ya quit:D It is the best thing you can do for yourself.

All the best,

Zoe

Thanks guys it helps!

I know it's early days but I cannit reccommend the electronic ones enough. I don't actually miss smoking at all, the puff of 'smoke' that is actually water vapour looks and feels so realistic. And unlike a real cig, you don't feel oblidged to smoke the whole thing to get your money's worth, just a few puffs takes the craving away.Ive no idea how the transition from vapour to nothing will go but I think I'll think about that another time!! :)
