Halfway Through the First Three Days

Well, after battling insomnia last night I finally fell asleep and didn’t wake up until about 11 a.m. Felt pretty good. Yes, I thought about smoking right away, but more in the context of “how’s your quit going,” not, “wish I had a cigarette!” That seems like a good sign!

And right now, it’s noon, which means Day 2 is already half over, which means the first three days are half over as well. That’s amazing! I’m sure I’ll look back and think “gee, what’s the big deal,” but right now, with time moving so slowly during Hell Week, it IS a big deal!

Having a few cravings this morning, but nothing I can’t handle. I choose not to smoke, right? If I choose not to smoke, then Sir Coughsalot has no power over me.

And the little bit of anxiety that a craving produces is going to be less and less powerful or strong with each passing hour. I CAN DO THIS!

  • So pleased for you :) I'm only on my first day & keep looking for my fags - it's all just habit!

    I'm not giving in, like you said if we choose not to smoke the evil Mr nicotine has lost :D

    Good luck & keep going - you should be proud of yourself :)

    Thanks, Denise.

    Have a GREAT Day 1, even if that means taking it one MINUTE at a time. You'll get through it, and you'll feel so good when you do. The first one's the hardest, I think.

    See you down the road, when we're both "old pros" giving our sage advice to the newbies!

    Can't wait :D

  • Well done to both of you. Those first days are tough, and you are doing BRILLIANTLY.

    Choosing not to smoke, one day, one hour at a time. All you have to do is not to light up the first one - the rest can take care of themselves ;)

    Hang in there!
