Day 16 first ever post

Day 16

I have not smoked 240 fags, I have not had 2160 puffs of a fag, I have saved £84. :)

I'm feeling ok, I know I am a smoker, I also know I'm not smoking, I hope I will never smoke again. My appetite is mental, strong mints are taking a hammering, I have mouth ulcers, disrupted sleep patterns and a bad temper. This site along with two iPhone apps are keeping me going. (also a strong will to beat this terrible addiction)

I have smoked since I was 12 I will be 41 on Wednesday.

NRT 15mgs inhalator 10mgs. I quite like living its fun.

  • Hi Jonboy

    Congratulations on your quit - sounds like you are doing great!! I find doing the money count helps a little too!! Keep up the good work!

    :D

  • Real fight today

    Very sick this morning, felt awful all day, went for a swim and a sauna feel better. I could have caved in I think some days are so hard, howeve the plus is I haven't so try and keep smiling. I never want to feel or go through this again, I feel cheated and abused by the tobacco co's good enough reason to stop forever.

    On the plus side the birthday is coming a great present to myself:cool:

  • Well done and Happy Birthday for Wednesday :)

  • We share a birthday Jonboy, you are doing well stick with it:D

  • It is not fun when you get a hard day - hope tomorrow will be better for you but you are still going!!

    I have a birthday coming up too 31 on Saturday - was thinking this will be my first birthday that I have not smoked on since I was 14!!! scary thought!! I see for you it will be a lot of birthdays since being a non smoker too!! Enjoy it on Wednesday!!

    :D

  • Bad days and tasting gravy

    Thanks folks for the best wishes, tough one today, have felt ill, light headed and generally miserable, which to be fair is the first time since days six and seven where I morphed into a lunatic :eek:

    Sauna and swim helped so much just mucking about with the family in the pool took my mind well away.

    Then tasting gravy for the first time in what twenty nine years, like they say northern lads love gravy.....:D

    Day 17 gone, 255 cigs not smoked, 2295 drags not had £89.25 saved, Portugal booked, mankini on order, week three next Thursday get on. Good luck tomorrow everyone :cool:;)

    Congratulations!

    Well done - so sensible to have that swim - exercise is one of the major helpers in quitting smoking.

    I'm a Northerner & I love gravy - it makes even brussell sprouts taste OK:)

    If we want to be "posh" we could call it sauce.

  • Dinner sauce

    Excellent really made me laugh, this site is fantastic, as an aside my fantasy football team for many years was called 'chips n gravy' may change it next year to 'chips n onion reduction':p

  • only been them off them for one week. Week 2 should be better i hope:eek:

    i am starting to feel more confident in myself now, so thst should help a bit. we shall see
