I did It!

Day 2 is over. For the first half of the day I was tired and had no appetite. I ended up staying in bed till late (So glad I haven't got work this week).

My mood has picked up this other half of the day although I don't really like being round anyone, I like being by myself right now.

I don't really get it but I'm finding it kind of easy-ish. I might regret saying that. I mean I'm going through this mental torture like everyone else but I think I'm just suprised how well I'm coping but then again I've been able to be by myself pretty much the whole day. I think If I was at work this week or had to go out with people I think I'd struggle more. Maybe I need to challenge myself todo that.

It kind of depresses me just thinking how long of a journey it is yet to go. The longest I've ever given up for was 1 month and a week. I'm scared alittle I'll repeat history and go back after 1 month of being free.

  • Well done warrior your doing great .if i was you i would not worry about when you get to 1 month and a day just take every day as it comes ,the last time i was of them 12 weeks but am more determined to stay quit this time good luck :)

  • Fantastic.

    Just take one day at a time. You'll be amazed how quickly the time passes.

    Just be really easy on yourself over the first few weeks. Give yourself lots of treats and spend time doing what you enjoy doing.

    I downloaded some favourite books onto my Kindle and spent lots of my spare time (probably previously my 'smoking time!) reading. Watch some good movies/do the garden... whatever it is you do to relax.

    Keep going.

  • Well done Warrior, I did it much like you, stayed by myself, not much of an appetite, didn't do any house-work, stayed in bed and spent the first few days on the computer going into every quit site I could find until I settled on this one and registered. I found it more easyish than I thought as well, I think that is to do with the fact I am not wressling with my head about this decision, the addiction may be wressling with me but I have made my mind up I will not let it beat me. I'm day 6 today, and I can honestly say the cravings are not quite so intense as they were for the first few days. I do spend the majority of my time on this site though, it takes the edge off the hard times. There will be challenging moments, but think Warrior by name, Warrior by nature, face those challenging times head on and in just a few short days you will be able to come on the site at your next milestone, 7 days, and say again 'I did it.' Some-one wrote in my early day, one day at a time, if that's too hard, one hour at a time, or even one minute at a time, break it down, the cravings do pass. Stay strong and focused and use the forum, it's been a life-saver for me.

  • Well done Warrior keep going! You chose a good time to quit I think ie when youre not working.I couldnt face being round people when I first stopped as I knew it would make it harder as I always smoked when having chats.I just kept myself to myself.Around about day 4 I kept any so******ing short and sweet and then gradually increased people time slowly as the days passed.I actually had dinner with and spent time with 2smokers on day13 I never thought Id be able to do that so soon.It wasnt that easy tho to be honest but ok and handleable.Take it steady,do be gentle with yourself,grit your teeth and keep walking.It will get easier.All the best.

  • ps The missing word is social ising.I dont know why it did that.uh?

  • Way to go warrior!!!

    One day at a time, dont look at the bigger picture just yet but the day to day, just as you are doing, and well done!!!

    You'll be ace, your name is cool by the way... just the sort of moniker you need to thwart them fags.

    Keep coming on here and posting it really helps!!! :O)

  • Hi warrior, dont look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it aint there. Dont waste your energy waiting for the angels to sing to you. It is a constant journey that will get easier and easire until one day you forget your on it i reckon.

    Cheers
