Hi!!! day 2.. new to forum

Hi there :)

Day 2 had my last cancer stick at 8am yesterday morning.

Stopped quite suddenly although been thinking about it for ages...been driving me mad today cant even think straight, really want one but I will not give in...

Got in my car this morning thought I was going to throw up,:eek: the smell of stale cigarettes was so bad!!! but also it hasn't been cleaned for ages so was turning into a biological hazard lol..

Had to go the dentist and have a crown fitted so whilst my mouth was thawing out and i couldn't eat, I occupied myself by washing (yes washing!! it was that bad folks) the inside of my car out with flash containing fabreeze...So now I have a lovely smelling car and because it kept me occupied didnt even think of smoking whilst I was cleaning:)..

Right what can I eat now lol..x

ps my reasons for quitting

  • Hi Zoe thanks for your reply...yeah everything "stinks" lol...read somewhere when i packed up last time that newly quit smokers find the smell so offensive because its something to do will the receptors in the brain rejecting it and we will smell it twice as bad as someone who has never smoked...also I think its cause its a "new" smell to us and we are just not used to it.....yak yak....

    Will pop into the March Hares thank you ..x

  • Welcome :) Even when i smoked the smell of stale smoke was revolting. The great thing about not smoking is having the confidence you know you smell good and so does your belongings, before I used to be paranoid about everything especially if someone wanted a lift in my car!!

  • Hi 9january my thoughts exactly!!! really felt embarrassed about the smell..my car is gleaming inside but am still getting a whiff of fags...its orrible!!! xx

    Well - you learn something new everyday! I didn't know about that bit about the receptors. Makes sense.

    And trust me - 6 months on, and the smell is still VILE!!!!

    Good luck - get all the support you can from this forum. It has helped more than I realise sometimes.:D
