No Smoking Day

Hi, i'm a new member, currently on day 3 of quitting cold turkey.

I'm quitting because after 15 years of smoking (nearly half my life!) i'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!

I never knew that after only 3 days of not smoking my lungs would start feeling so much better, getting up in the morning would be easier and i could go for an hours bike ride without feeling like i'm going to die.

A big plus for me, and one i really didnt expect, is that i'm not feeling my usual anxiety (something i have suffered with for years). Dont get me wrong, i'm getting the nicotine withdrawals really bad, which is stressing me, but i dont feel like im anywhere near having a panic attack.

I just hope i can get through the worst of this.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Nick, welcome to the site, and congratulations on making the decision to kick this hideous habit into touch.

You'll find great support here. Keep reading and posting, it really helps.

One day at a time, remember. That's all you need to worry about.

Glad to hear you're feeling so much better already. And it will keep getting better! There's nothing good about smoking - nothing to miss.

Keep on keeping on!
