Hi, my name is chris and I quit smoking Sunday night, 5 days ago. I have been reading these blogs over and over the past few days and words can't explain how much this has helped me. I smoked for 15 yrs, a pack of 20 per day. Cold turkey was so hard the first few days. The cravings yesterday (4th day) were so bad I found myself walking around in circles at one point twitching my fingers, then i went to lay on my bed and practically cried myself to sleep. The little man in my head would not leave me alone, he was driving me insane and I craved all day long, but I won! He can get fked and so can his smoke cos im flushing this disease out of me for good.
Today is good, I have small cravings but I'm dealing with them, drinking cold water helps alot,I also find that breathing in the cold air helps, it kind of gives me that feeling of inhaling smoke, but much healthier
I have decided not to drink this weekend and to stay away from smokers. Looking forward to Sunday when I WILL reach one week. Good luck to everyone, we are all doing very well, this site is brilliant, helpful and inspiring
