Just into day 3 now!

Well then am I not glad I found this little haven, I have just completed 48hrs of being a non-smoker...and it is soooo weird!! :)

Day 1 I felt Empowered, exhilarated, scared, apprehensive, and throughout the day a little confused (I knew I wanted to be a non-smoker, but I was confused as to how I was supposed to fill my new free time)

Day 2 felt calmer a little more at ease for my new non-smoking life, but just coming up to 48hrs in and I really wanted a ciggie, glad to say I have dug deep and regathered my thoughts and pulled myself back from the scary place of 'I could really do with a puff of a ciggie right now'

Day 3 Will really kick off in the morning I guess as settling for the evening now and I have worn myself out with listening to all the angel devil comments my subconscious wants me to hear!

So I am looking forward to day 3, I really am approaching things with the idea that each day is going to be a little bit better than the last! (Fingers crossed!)

I will be a regular on here now so I am sure I will 'meet' some new friends but for the moment may the force be with everyone in their quest for happiness and being ciggieless! :D:D:D

  • Well done on deciding to quit, the first week can be incredibly draining mentally,

    Just stay focused on the task in hand and power through it will get easier

    Good luck :)

  • :D

    Well done on deciding to quit

    You seem to be quite focused and positive

    Those two qualities you need to try and keep also try not to think too far ahead

    Just try and focus on each day as it comes along and keep mind and hands busy when you get a crave coming on

    They do pass reading and posting on here will help you too

    Will look out for your posts

  • Thanks rob and here we go, I am rather pleased with myself that I am managing to do it.....although I do have to agree my poor wee brain feels like its had a right old workout! I decided that I would treat myself with a cheeky wee half of chilled pear cider just to reward myself for the last couple of days (I am the exception to the rule, could never smoke when I was out having a drink).

    Will defo keep posting and thanks for taking the time to say Hi! :) :)

    I felt like a mental case in the early days of my quit. Reading your post reminds me of it. I didnt post on here until, I think, day 6 of stopping....... by which time I was really starting to think 'bloody hell.....I can do this'. In fact by day six I was thinking, bloody, flippin, cocking, chuffing nora.....I CAN DO THIS. Welcome welcome. Tomorrow you will bat day 3 into outer space. Best decision you have ever made. congratulations on your first 48 hours.

  • Just keep going

    Really well done ciggieless :)

    I'm only day 4 myself and playing mind games with myself, like don't throw away the first 3 for the sake of that (just one drag) that your kidding yourself you will only have.

    Strange how my mind is trying to lie to my own mind lol.

    1 day at a time has become my mantra. Good luck on day 3 :)

  • Welcome Cig, hope you're still with us ...:confused:

  • Thanks Guys, I am still in the game, 45mins left of day 3!!!! Nearly into day 4...looking forward to tomorrow, I have been boosted today by so many people at work asking how I managed to give up smoking...seems everybody wants to do it!! Felt a whole range of emotions during the day and the latest most unexpected one was 'OMG I can't believe I have actually stopped smoking!' Honestly, turmoil in head subsiding and more positive thoughts creeping through, life is feeling pretty damn special at the moment and every single day make sure you tell yourself just how well you are doing with being a non-smoker! Be strong...you can do it! :D

  • You are a NON SMOKER wow how good does that sound.

    Just keep getting through one day at a time and telling yourself you can do this.

    well done
