very hard day 3

Hi everyone!

Ive made it to day 3, i know this is meant to be the worst day and everything but OMG, i feel like im gonna burst into tears if i dont smoke!

My mums gone out and shes left her friggin fags on the table which doesnt make things any easier!

Im in a different room to them but they are calling my name!!

One thing i am very very proud of tho is being very strong last night and not having one. I was put in a very stressful situation and had to call 999 and was in a stressful, upset and teary way for over an hour but i didnt cave!

I didnt sleep until 3.30am last night and was woken up at 8.00 by a plumber so ive been asleep from 10am til 2.15pm and thats the only reason why ive found things easy so far today!

Ive just ate toast and drank my tea (fuel for a ciggy) and i cant get that "need a fag" taste out of my mouth!

Plus, i was looking forward to keeping busy today (shopping, meal, cinema) but due to circumstances last night, i cant go anymore!!

:(

  • Jeez, I've known people to be desperate when giving up smoking, but I've never heard of anyone calling 999 before! :eek: ;)

    Seriously though, dialling 999 or calling the plumber won't help :D

    It's tough LittleVix but you've got to break the habit and cycle you've got yourself into.

    I promise you that bit by bit it does get better, you just have to be really strong at the start.

    Stick something in your ears so you can't hear those evil cancer sticks calling your name.

    Stay strong! :D

  • Thank you, i already feel better :)

    Im going to go and brush my teeth..again (2rd time today, doing this because after i brush my teeth i used to hate the taste of a fag!)

    I have a choice of 7 dogs i could take for a walk but im still so tired because of last night i dont think i can manage it! Maybe a jump in a cold shower may help?

    I used to draw a lot when i was in school, maybe i should get the old pencils out aswell! :)

  • Hi LittleVix and well done for getting through a stressful situation, you should be so proud of yourself :D

    Gosh I wouldn't like it if someone left cigs on my table at the mo, erm, don't think I would resist right now :o

    I was on day 3 yesterday and found it quite tough craving-wise, so I spent a lot of time on here and it helped. Remember the last of the nicotine is coming out of your system so that is why day 3 is hard, but day 4 is easier, trust me :)

    Don't forget to drink plenty of water and remember to eat, bananas are good to keep your blood sugar up in a healthy way and helps with your mood.

    All the best and take care of yourself,

  • The newbie quits

    I was the idiot who started smoking at 28...it's now 6 months down the road and I quit cold turkey three days ago. I was thinking it should be a breeze, because it was such a short term thing with me, but I'm really struggling! Has anyone else experienced nausea and drowsiness when trying to quit? And did anyone else tend to be crankier on day 3 than days 1 or 2?

    Omg why did u start that late in life?! Lol I suppose the majority of people start as teenagers, including me. The odd one when drinking with friends at 14/15 then full time regular at 16 :( if I could go back in time I would kick myself in the head. Lol

    Everyone doing a cold turkey quit say day 3 is harder. This is because that is when the nicotine should be in its last bits of life. You should be all clean of it tomorrow!! Woooooooo

    I'm on day 25 I think? (Lost off lol) and I only just started getting cranky the last couple of days!! Felt really angry then depressed all in the same day. Weird. Even booking my holiday didn't bring me out of it!! Lol

    Good luck hun x

  • Steph, you sound like my sister she took up smoking at 30 and now 8 years down the line cant seem to stop :confused: (I think she was having some sort of early mid life crisis, she also got her tongue peirced at this time!!!!)

    Im going CT and day 3 was horrendous for me too, by far my worse day but, I know you will have heard it before, it does get easier by the day. I suffered with mood swings again last week but nothing compared to day 3. If you can get through day 3, give yourself a massive pat on the back cause you deserve it!!:D:D:D

  • Well done everyone day 3 is a damn nightmare so really you have all done so good.I had felt sick for a few days when I quit,actually pregnancy crossed my mind it was that bad!thankfully it was just nicotine withdrawal I have been told.Stick with it,it will pass and another few days and you will feel better x
