day 7 still going :)

Day 7 now I am so chuffed I'm here and not feeling miserable. I'm actually happier. There's so much inspiration on here and from people I know that are non smokers after quitting years ago. I'm feeling pretty positives. The cravings are few and far between which I didn't expect. Didn't get any last night and none yet today. Even went into town after work with a work mate. She had a fag, I didn't feel an urge. Felt euphoric that I don't have to do that now. Don't you notice more smokers around once you've stopped? They stink.

My teeth feel and look cleaner. I smell nice. I'm a lot calmer and relaxed. I'm not tense ans panicky anymore. I've got more money. My constant sore throats gone. My chest doesn't feel tight and raw on mornings. Even though I've still got a slight cough. I'm enjoying not having to go out in the cold at lunchtime for a fix. I could go on!

  • Hi Rochelle, what fantastic news and inspirational words for others, well done what a milestone 1 whole week, i know its different for everyone but after years of fails only getting to 4 days hitting that week for me was my turning point and here i am just over 3 months.

    Pleased I've had that effect on you hun :)

    It really does get better, and every day as its getting better, I'm remembering why I'm so pleased I'm breaking free from it. A friend is quitting too, and I facebooked her asking how she was getting on. She told me her incentives and they were pretty hard :( the doctors suspected she had lung cancer last year so she quit for 4 months. Once they said she didn't have lung cancer, she started up again. :( now they're saying she's got lung damage and being tested for asthma and things. So she's quitting again. I NEVER want to be in that position. Even more incentive to quit. Carry on hun, find other things to enjoy, we can support eachother too and it makes me cheerful when I can write on here when I feel I've made progress. Xx
