Firstly congratulations to you all on getting where you have got to.
Personally I'm now on my 4th day of non smoking.... I posted on Monday in the 'Reasons' section my own reasons for quitting.
So my experience so far has been a true rollercoaster ride. Today I feel on top of the world, but yesterday was hard work and really trying.... the thoughts kept coming into my head of 'would one cigarette really matter', 'maybe I'm not ready yet, so maybe set a date to give up in a few weeks' etc. etc. (I'm sure all the same thoughts that everyone else on here has had!). Found myself very short tempered and unable to concentrate.
However managed to get through without running to the shop and today feel so much better and stronger for it!.
Slowly getting used to the changes of habit throughout my day, and trying to get used to all the extra time I seem to have. I own my own business and I don't think I've ever been as on top of the work as I am now, I mean seriously I think I must have lost an hour a day by standing outside the back of our unit smoking!
Also really looking forward to being able to tell other people I've quit. At the moment obviously my wife and co-workers know, but my parents and wife's parents don't yet as we haven't seen them since quitting Monday, and am looking forward to being able to say that I haven't smoked for 1 week/ 2 weeks depending on when we see them.
Anyway, good luck to you all on here, keep persevering... I'm sure I will have some more rough days ahead, but by reading a lot of your experiences and the encouragement and support I've already received on here, I'm looking forward to the next few days, then the next week and then the next month and so on.
