Hi I'm new and 33 years old, smoked 10 to 15 per day for 17 years. Today was my first day without a fag, my last on Friday night 11.30pm, I started this morning on edge even with the patch, I took the advice and been drinking water when I fancied one. It was going ok the first two hours then bang I sobbed my heart out three times this morning and I mean sobbed. Not because I was going to crack I know in my mind I won't but I did not think it would be this hard. Any how I have gone 24 hours and really proud of myself. The cravings are now not as bad as this morning more habit if that makes sense to anyone. At this time I can honestly say I don't think I will ever have another fag again, I can't cope with going through that again like I did this morning. Wondered if anyone else had been this bad on their first day and did it get a little better day 2? I'm also eating very healthy and upping the gym and walking as I don't want to gain weight. I have tried 10 years ago to stop I did for 12 weeks but I replaced fags with food and gained 2 stone. So this time I have probs made it harder but I can't gain weight.
