This is going to be hard :(

Hi all,

Well i've reached day 3, last night I had a couple of wobbly moments but managed to get through them.

Today I hear day 3 is known to be hard but what is going to make today even harder is knowing my hubby has just left for 10 days working in Slovakia, this is the 1st time we've been apart more than a day in over 4 years so today is really going to be a struggle.

He only left for the airport like 35 mins ago but already I am missing him :(

Don't blame me if I am on here all day posting away.

Stay Strong

Hey Woo,

Just think how proud he will be when he comes back and your still free!!! :-) I know it will be hard - but use this to your advantage - when you come through the other side - it means you know that you have conquered a big challenge.

That said - lets focus on the next hour and not too far ahead...baby steps! :-)

THanks guys :)

I keep on thinking, do I really need a smoke - NO

Will I enjoy the smoke - NO

Will I die if I don't smoke - NO (well maybe in 50 yrs from old age heh!)

Am I missing anything by not smoking - NO

That is getting me through so far, I mean the craves are little and easy to pass so far, last night was a different matter, I had a dull ache in my head, felt sick the works :( but just kept on thinking that if I lit up I would feel even more sick and get soaked as it was raining.

I've smoked for 20 years, started when I was 12 :eek: so I know it's going to be hard to be a none smoker but well i'll get there with all the support of you lovely people and my family/friends.

Ok so mid-afternoon update....

I am starting to feel like cr@p. I have a throbbing dull ache in my head, I feel sick, it feels like I have something lodged in my throat and I can't hack it up.

Isn't it funny how no-one tells you about feeling this way when you mention quitting? I'm guessing they don't so that you don't feel scared about quitting but man, I never felt like this when I ws smoking.

I knew today was going to be bad and it is getting worse by the hour :(

Sorry folks but really starting to feel sorry for myself here and having a 1 person pity family.

The healing has began

Hey Woo,

You did feel like this when you were smoking - ok - maybe not in one go - but remember cramming in as many fags as you could when you knew you would have a long time without them (plane journeys etc) - remember when you felt sick after smoking too many.

Woo - if you give in to this now - you know you will regret it - you know you will be annoyed with yourself.

You also know that you can beat these cravings - don't bargain with yourself.....remember - the only way to beat this - NOPE.

Hugs (I don't want you hubby coming back from Bratislava to hit me tho ;-))

Hi Woo

If it's any help, I suffered from man flu in Week 2 (amazing considering I'm female)

I seem to remember going mad about it on the forum as I expected to feel wonderful and just didn't. It did take me a couple of weeks to feel any benefits but they do come. As people said to me, you can't expect to clear years of damage from your body in a matter of days, but I suppose we just want to feel rewarded for our hard work.

You are doing brilliantly so far, don't let the next day or two put you off, it will pass I promise :)
