Day 3

Hello everyone.

Sorry to sound so pessimistic but I feel really lost and sad tonight. I'm wandering round the house and I don't know what to do . I don't want to smoke because I know it will make me feel bad, but yet part of me reckons a smoke will make me feel better. Yesterday I spent most of the day in tears. I feel very low. How long have I got to put up with these feelings for? and is this normal? I really am p****d off guys. Please help!

  • Hi

    your day 2 yesterday sounds pretty much like my day 2 today. Everything is p~~##ng me off. I know I'm a day behind you but all I keep reminding myself is that I don't want to do day 1 again !!!

    I have 2 children that keep me busy but I'm glad I found this forum. Come on, we can do this together

    Hi Sdb :)

    I'm sorry you're feeling rubbish - you're at the toughest part of your quit now so things will start getting better soon!!

    The feeling lost and sad is normal (it's withdrawal) and thinking a smoke will help is the "nicotine monster" that wants feeding - and right now. The longer you ignore it the easier it gets and the weaker the pull gets too :)

    Hello my love:). Sorry you're not having the best time of it, all par for the course I'm afraid. The first few days IMO are the worst but you're nearly there, thereafter you'll find this quitting malarkey easier.

    I remember posting the 'feeling of lost' too, my words exactly. It's not a good feeling. However what I can promise you that feeling doesn't last too long, you will bounce back!

    Baby steps, please try not to look too far ahead.

  • Thank you for all your replies and I'm sorry for the rant. I'll keep fighting this until I win. I'm don't want to be a slave to nicotine any longer and I'm not going to let him win. Think I'll have a long bath then an early night. Hope my Allen Carr book comes soon, I think I need it. Goodnight all and Thank you once again for your kind words and support.

    Hey Sdb,

    Sorry you've had a particularly rubbish day today, but I just want to bring your attention to your comment "I'll keep fighting this until I win". Please try to remember, especially on your worst days, that you have already won and continue doing so every single day. You've done an amazing thing and should be truly proud of yourself! :)

    Allen Carr will help to renew your strength and also remind you just how awesome you are for kicking this filthy habit.

    Well done! Keep plooding on :D

  • Day 3

    Hi all. Yesterday was day 2 and it was hell, even got in my car to drive to the ciggie shop but forced myself to drive past and return home. The evening wasn't so bad had 3 friends round who are all ex smokers and they really gave me hope. Now on day 3 and feel better. Good luck to you all. Love Jonno. (Ex smoker) I hope
