No Smoking Day

Newbie here and straight into week 2!

Sorry.....just viewed in week 1. Felt I had to contribute though so here I am. Day 8 not smoking tomorrow after over 30 years of a 20 a day habit. 2 previous failed quit attempts - Alen Carr and NRT. Difference is this time I mean it - so far so good. :) I think the correct mindset as you approach the quit makes a big difference and others on here seem to agree. First few days were cr@p but since then it has been pretty manageable. The fact I am determined and don't feel that I am somehow deprived or missing something is working for me up till now.

Look forward to supporting others (and getting some support when I am struggling!)

Welcome Doug

Congrates on 7days of smoke free:D very impressive, im with you on the mind set that you have to want to quit

Else if you do it through pressure you'l never quite make it, i know ive quit in the past through pressure and lasted a couple of days :eek:

Anyway best of luck Doug

Hi Newbie and everyone

I am new to the forum joined today. I have not smoked since the 5th of November so I'm into my third week. I have had some bad times but have visited the forum as a guest when this has happened which helped me through.

So well done Newbie and everyone fighting the demon!!

Hi Oes

Like you I am a new member on the start of my third week, my my do I hate the mornings! So you are not alone, and what is great about this site is to know others are feeling just like you, it helps to put things into prospective.

Hi Oes

Like you I smoked roll ups and also I am using patches and inhaler.

I am finding the most difficult thing is to stop feeling down, feed up and tearful at times. There must be a time when these feeling get less, it's just a case of fighting the battle we have put our self's into over the years till we get to this point. I except that you can not expect it to be easy, but I hope it happens soon!!!

Welcome to the Forum

You'll find a lot of lot of folks feel very down in the easy stages of their quit. I did too, I just felt bit low and lost. However you I can promise you that these feelings will pass. Wishing you all the best in your quit Ollie.
