No Smoking Day

Back to Square 1!!

Well after lasting an entire week of being smoke free, I caved after receiving some bad news (no excuse I know) and have spent the last couple of weeks wallowing in a puff of smoke :(

However, having just went out for my morning smoke break at work and stood freezing my ass off in -4 degress whilst receiving "looks of pure pity" from passers by, Ive decided I need to try again.

So tonight i will be looking out my smoke bible (alan carrs easyway) and tomorrow is D day. Fingers crossed for me !!!

Yay, good for you :) I want to read this Alan Carr book.

I think you need a bit of a blip to make you compare the two weeks, the smoking one and the non smoking one. You can really see and feel the difference and think ahh I actually prefere the non smoking week and here you are. Congrats :D (if that makes any sense?)


Get right back on it!! You can nail this.

Keep positive and keep posting :)



Thanks guys.

And surferchick I know what you mean, even though I was going through the withdrawal process in my week of no smoking, I was still feeling really positive and noticed a big difference in myself even after a week.

Im still smoking today but with every draw I am convincing myself how disgusting it is in the hope it makes tomorrow easier.

Looking forward to a new start and a new me tomorrow!!

If at first you don't succeed...

Never quit trying to quit Red80.

The first time you can get through that really bad craving/stressful situation is the time you know you can make the quit stick.

If you can go a week then you can do it for good.

Good luck and keep posting :)


Thanks folks,

Thats me halfway through day 1 and coping ok so far (i think i am anyway - others may disagree :D)

Dont feel too bad other than a bit on edge and like i'm missing something. Ive been here before though (several times!!!) so i know what to expect at this stage.

Thanks for the support and good luck in your quits
