Day five on cold turkey

Hi all,

Well I have got to day five, I can't believe I have managed to do it cold turkey.

I know it is very early days yet,I do feel a little bit spaced out and more tired than usual but I don.t think I feel as edgy as when I used other quit methods. And believe me over the years I have tried nearly all of them.

So onward and upward.

well done Joan, keep up the good work. Enjoy the spaced out feeling, it will go soon:eek:


So pleased for you Joan, you will feel strange for a while I know I did, but you are doing really well just say to yourself Iam not smoking today take it one day at a time and before you know it, it will be a week a month and so on.

All the best! x:)


Well done Joanie! Really glad to see you back on the wagon.

CT isn't as bad as you fear, is it? I believe it's easier in the long run. You've got a week or so of clearing your system of nicotene, and then you're free and clear to work through ridding yourself of the psychological habit, without a continuing injection of nicotene to cloud the issue.

(Having said that I do believe that everyone has to do what is best for them, I'm NOT preaching!)

Keep going, you are doing so well, you should be truly proud of yourself.

Oh thank's guys, I do feel proud of myself, the feeling I have is if I have been given a mild sedative and I feel quite positive.

I am putting the money away that I would have spent on the cigs so that is a good intensive if ever there was one.
