Worse day???

Ok this is first time in 10 years I have gone 3 Days without smoking, I have found this the hardest day so far, I'm a emotional wreck, I'm so tired I feel like not bothering getting out of bed, I want to smoke to stop it all but when I've been the shop they not jumping out at me, even seeing other people smoking (on street) doesn't bother me, not sure I can keep up with the changes but don't ever want to smoke

Sorry if this makes no sense

  • Don't give up. I had a terrible day yesterday and was so close to lighting up a ciggie to make all the horrible feelings go away, in the end around 8pm I went out for a 30 minute fast paced walk, it helped a great deal.

    Much better day today and tomorrow is another day.

    Dawn

  • I felt it yesterday as well, feel better today thankfully. We have to take the bad with the good unfortunately, if it was all plain sailing we stop and start all of the time. Hang on in there, it will get better.

  • Stick at it I had a shocker today

    Better days are ahead, good luck.

    If its any consolation I stayed in bed all day on day 10 :D

  • If you have the urge to smoke go for a shower :) wet cigarettes are a bugger to light :)

  • its funny that iv just remembered that smoking whilst having a bath was never a bit enjoyable. they didnt get wet just didnt taste any good.

    M:cool:

  • I remember those early days they can be shit but they do get better.

    Have a bathe with bubb;les treat yourself be kind to yourself your body will love you soon enough for quitting.

  • Sickness.

    Day 3.

    Last night my throat started to become really sore, woke up many times during the night with my throat in agony. Went to the local shop to get 3 packs of lockets at half 6 in the morning.

    All morning ive felt really bad, cold like symptoms, headache, sore lungs. Even my legs feel weird, probably due to circulation, right?. Going to get up and try to eat something then go back to my bed for the day, thankfully ive got netflix.lol

    I stopped last year for a couple of months and it wasn't nearly as bad . Feeling this ill, makes me more motivated though. Obviously if stopping causes this much agony 3 days in, think of what it must be doing discreetly to you.

    Thanks for reading.

    Hi Makaveli_89

    There is a good chance that you actually do have a cold!!

    When we first quit any symptons we get we tend to associate with quitting, and sometimes we ignore the obvious!!:D

    Well done on doing 3 days....onwards and upwards!

  • I agree... It sounds like you genuinly are sick, You should go see a doc for proper meds, Good luck with your quit! You can do it :)

  • The thought of a cigarette is always better than having one.

    So true .. doesn't matter how many times I read it.

    (sorry not so good at using the quoting thing lol)

    My fingers only went white once today :o)
