Day 1 almost!

Hi all

Had my last cig at 8.00am this morning, not feeling too bad, using the patches and electronic ciggie. Anyone else using this? It seems to be helping me anyway, just finding that I'm clamping my teeth together a lot???? No idea what that means but it hurts!!

Be great for some words of support as I'm worried about the morning, normally get through at least 5 before I go to work?

Hope to hear from anyone soon!

  • Yeah, drinking a lot of diet coke, having the odd draw on the electronic cigarette, been on my own most of the night, but now when hubbie is home the craving is worse? Even though he doesn't smoke! Going to bed in a mo so that it will be another 8 hours or so before the beast comes back!

    Psychologically I probably only 'needed' one out of the two or three (or sometimes four!:eek:) i had before work. I'd say the sooner you can get out of the early morning smoking routine, and please think of it as 'just a routine' the better, it will make it easier. I genuinely gritted my teeth to get through to about 10am, maybe 11am by making the start of the day the 'willpower' session. Get through the first couple of hours, the others will seem easier as a consequence. Mind training Nicki, you have to be determined and stay strong, rooting for you! :cool:

    Wishing you all the vey best in your quit journey. Mornings, if thats when you think you'll find it the hardest, try to stay in bed a wee while longer (what was your smoking 10 mins).

    Maybe drink grapefruit, cereals/with milk, as its not usually associated with smoking ( like coffee etc).

    Baby steps, try not to think too far ahead.

    Give it your very best shot my love.

  • Congrats on deciding to quit Nicki, this is a very good place to read through others experiences, as well as post your own (and left off steam!!). Good luck with the quick. You CAN do it!

  • Well done Nicki and good luck with your journey.

    Hope the jaw clenching disappears. It sounds like tension and it will make your jaw ache.

    Good advice to follow from all the others. Remember if you stop nothing bad will happen! Only good can come of this effort ,so keep it up and do what you have to do to get you through the first weeks. The weeks/ months fly by after that first month is over. x

  • Last time I quit I cut up a straw and sucked air through it, it really helped, along with sugar free gum
