I CAN do this!

Day two going great! (so far) I slept late and that helped. The went for a walk before I had my coffee - that helped too.

Watching those videos helped! Now when I have a craving I picture that little monster and it kinda makes me smile though the discomfort. Then went I feel stressed or angry I picture that 'happy meter' and know if I have a ciggy I will feel alittle better but not for long.

I really was fooled into thinking I 'needed' to smoke!

Day two of being a NON smoker bring it on! :)

Thanks everyone for the great information and support yesterday!

  • Going great. The first day is the worst and you are over it - magic :)

    There are some social groups you can join for further support - have a look around.

  • Thanks again. I am trying to be positive. Plus I got a BIG secret! I just found out LAST NIGHT I am pregnant! Ok so it is VERY early (4 weeks) but what wonderful motivation. I can't just think about what I want and I have to stick with this being a non smoker thing!

    I was able to quit cold turkey 9 years ago when I got pregnant with my eldest son. I only picked up the 20+ a day habit AGAIN 4 years ago.

  • Wow, that's fabulous news, congratulations!

    I quit both times for about a year and a half with both my boys, but as soon as they were weaned, virtually straight away, I started again. I hadn't quit in my head then, I'd just put it on pause.

    I know you'll make this your forever quit. And what fabulous incentive. I'm chuffed to bits for you.
