1st ever post on any forum- nearly end of Day 5

Hi all,

I've been reading this forum for the last 5 days mainly when I feel the need for a cig! So I would like to say a massive thanks to everyone for keeping me going and making me realise everything i feel is completely normal! I am going cold turkey (again), I quit once for 7 months about 6 years ago but I don't remember feeling this bad, I was going on holiday to Florida with 3 non-smokers in a villa and felt it would be awful wandering around Disney and trying to find somewhere to smoke and drag them with me and gave up just like that.

This time it's different, I never smoked in public only at home but, I knew I had to stop when I started smoking at work, I have worked for my current company for 3 years and never smoked at work until new people joined the team and it became social so ended up on 20 a day instead of every 3 days. Last Sunday I had one and I felt so ill I didn't have another one but I'm not counting that as a non smoking day...So here I am day 5, still go out at fag break time at moment becuase it makes me worse feeling im missing out on something but actually don't like the smell and can't believe I used to smell like that, on the negative side am eating myself out of house and home, luckily busy weekend moving my sisters horses to new stables this weekend so no smoking and no eatin!!!

Hope I haven't bored you all too much love reading your posts, hopefully I'll be able to input more as my quit continues! All the best fellow quitters! Xxx

  • Respect to you for going Cold Turkey. I'm the biggest fan of this method. :)

    Buy Allen Carr's book,it's a must.

    Next time you go to Disneyland can you hide me in your suitcase :)

  • Of course, now I have decided to give I up I might actually be able to afford to go back to Disney!! :)

    I've heard a lot about this book, I'll have a look for it!

  • Get it off Ebay/Amazon. The book is for Cold Turkey people and won't cost you more then a pack of fags. It will be the best few pounds you will spend, BELIEVE ME.

  • good luck TracyP, you are doing fantastic, hope it all go's well for u x

  • Well done Tracy.

    This is the first time I have tried cold turkey, past quits have been patches.

    I have to say in all honesty this quit as been the best so far so fingers crossed.Keep posting Tracy to let us know how things are going.

  • Thanks all for your support! Day 6 now well and truly underway! Think I'm going to treat myself to the Avengers at the cinema tonight! Xxx

  • And with all the fag money you have saved you might just about be able to afford some of their pick n' mix

  • OMG! How expensive is it for pick and mix these days! I got a shock the last time I did that! Lol! Xx

  • Yep its a rip off but of course £50 a week on fags wasn't
