Made it into day 2

Morning. well have managed to make it into day 2. (8pm last night)

Cravings come and go but am copeing with them at the moment.

I am going to only take enough money out to get the milk I need and that way i won't be able to cave in and buy cigs.

I think at the moment it would be to easy to say sod it, will only get 10 and make them last.

I think its the habit i miss at the moment. I used to like to go outside and have a smoke, I didn't enjoy the cig though, I always thought it tasted disgusting. Might have to make a drink and wander about with that instead.

Will look out for you all later.

hi Jane :)

well done on quitting and yep just taking enough money out with you for the milk will certainly help

just remember that a crave will last for only so long so try and keep hands and mind busy when it comes reading and posting on here will help do both

there are some really good tips in the link on my signature

i look forward to reading your posts

regards

Well done, keep going :)

I did the things I used to associate with smoking all in the first week of stopping; the drink and a wonder sounds like a good plan.

It personally helped me as I felt the worst was out the way.

going ok.

Thought i would try some deep breathing. big mistake, just made me short of breath, very strange

I have an inhaluater thing but it makes me cough so dont think i will bother with it, maybe just take the cartridge out and fiddle with it.

Last post before bed.

Now on end of day 2 (well techincally now into day 3)

Not been a bad day.

Have just felt like i have lost something. Certainley not the taste as i hated that, maybe it's the not putting anything into mouth.

The clearing of the throat (chesty cough ) that i had has already seems to have gone .

Will give it at least a week before i go to bed without taking my pain killers that stop the night cough, hopefully i can knock them on the head as well then as they dont get rid of the arthritias pain but they do make me sleep.

See you all tomorrow
