Finally stopped on day 1

I put out my last cigarette just before 12 oclock. I was thinking of putting it off till 1 more day but I know this is just pointless for the last few months I have been giving up and then I say to myself just 1 more day and ill give up tomorrow. I normally persude myself to smoke 1 more day theres always a reason to smoke just 1 more or 1 more pack.

I know thats the addiction talking and I just want to be free from this horrible thing. I don't know how hard its going to be but im going to stick on here.

I know this is going to be hard but I keep thinking everyday just think well thats 1 day gone and ur on your way to doing something my future self will be glad about.

    As we all did, and that's what kept us chained for months / years / decades.

    So well done for saying enough's enough - NEVER doubt that you can beat this, read all you can on this forum, the more you read the more you will understand everything about nicotine addiction and the better armed you will be to beat it!

  • Hey Rock, well done on saying your giving up, believe me it is well worth it, Now you can say "i'll put off lighting up for one more day" and then say the same thing the next day and the next ect ect, a bit of reverse psychology :P , It is hard at the start but with a bit of effort and determination you can do it, good luck fella :)

  • Think we have all been there putting off quitting for just one more day. So pleased you have finally made the decision to quit. Good luck, you can do this one day at a time

  • Go for it Rock......I am on another attempt (lasted 3 weeks last time).....it was really going well and the initial strong will power and notality of being quit turned into little voices telling me reasons to fail and have another smoke.....

    Now I am back on Day 1 and looking at making this my last attempt......

    I am going to sit down later and make a list or things to do to distract me on the first few days....

    Good luck and stay strong.....

  • Hi Rock

    I am also back on day 1 but more determined than ever this time. We will get there, like so many other people on this forum have done.

  • good job

    Hey Rock,

    Excellent decision to say enough is enough! After a few days you will wish you had sacked up earlier. I was the same as you in regards to continually putting it off and i know i was kicking myself that i didnt quit months before i actually did!

    Stay strong and remember everyday gets easier!:D
