Day 5 Begins!

Afternoon All,

So reflections on the past 4 days.

Day 1 - The 3 hour hurdle was tough - I have had previous quits where I have fallen at the first fence - I don't even count them really as I didn't learn anything. Eurphoric to get through it

Day 2 - Easier than expected to be honest - didn't do much at work - but not too many cravings.

Day 3 - The "Biggie". Getting the last of the Nicotine out is a big deal in my head - as mentioned before - I drunk shedloads of green tea - just to make sure! :-)

Day 4 - Know the mind games begin - I know that every crave I have is caused from the brain rather than a Nicotine requirement. Last night - I had to "sacrifice" a night out on the ale - not ready to face that yet!!

An observation on all 96.5 hours so far - is that this forum is AMAZING and the people are FANTASTIC! Just reading some of the stories and comments on here is so inspiring. Thank you everyone!

Way to go! Your journey sounds exactly like mine. With the exception I chewed nic gum for a few days, now cold turkey.

Funny thing is right now, I don't even miss the 'trigger' times, like hopping in the car, morning coffee, stuff like that. I was driving around yesterday and it's fricking cold here right now. I'd see people huddled outside buildings smoking and I'd feel sorry for them.

I actually think of myself as a non-smoker this time, not just a smoker who quit.


Day 5 here for me and I am beginning to notice how bad smokers and smoking areas smell!! Well done chris, we are all here with you.
