Back again, one day at a time

Hello,

I used this forum to quit the first time in may of 2009 after having smoked for 15 years, and had been quit for two years. For some stupid reason I allowed myself to have one here and there about a year ago, until I realized I was buying packs, one per week then every other day. :( This time I hope to quit for good being a bit wiser and realizing that I am not able to just have one here and there and going cold turkey like I did the first time. I am on day four now, yesterday was rough, headache, feeling out of it, irritable and somewhat on edge. Today feeling much better. Trying to just get through it one day at a time.

Good luck to everyone else quitting as well! :)

    Welcome back and as you probably already know the first 3 days are the worst and they are now over. You will learn from your previous quit and hopefully that will stand you in good stead for this quit. Onwards and Upwards as they say!:)

  • Thank you Haze56, yes, after the first three days it definitely gets easier:)

  • Hey Horace

    with a two year quit behind you there's nothing new I can tell you that's for sure, but good luck all the same :D

    You will start to feel the benefits like taste coming back stronger sense of smell and breathing a lot easier. All will help spur you on. Use your experience from your last quit to help you with this one. Learn from past mistakes and keep posting and reading on this forum for support. You can do this!:)
