Welcome to the forum, Matt. You have most certainly come to the right place!

It's good to be looking forward to the health benefits and don't forget the other benefits too.....no more wasting vast sums of money :eek: and actually being in charge of your own life, rather than having it dictated to you by stupid, stinking fags!

If you are at all anxious about taking the first step to smoke-free-ness, well don't be........it is a very liberating experience! Make full use of the forum; read others' experiences, ask any questions, even come here for a rant if you are having a wobble!

Hi, well done on making the decision!! Just take today really slowly, don't think about tomorrow or next week - just focus on today. You can make it through one day, just by dealing with each crave as it comes and not giving in to it. Good Luck

Good Luck, as so many have said you've come to the right place! This forum has been so helpful during my quit and has helped get me through some bad patches!

Well done, Matt......feels good, doesn't it!:D

One thing, though...don't let your guard down. The nicotine monster can sneak up on you unawares, tempting you to have a fag. You may encounter difficult situations, where you are tempted to have "just one". DON'T.:eek: "Just one" is exactly the way back to smoking stinking fags.

But, you've made it through Day1 and later on or tomorrow, you can let us know that you got through Day 2 as well! How good would that be!:D

Good Luck from me too Matt, just want to emphasise (spelling?) just how helpful this forum is. I'm doing cold turkey and couldn't have done it without help from here....

MORE MONEY

MORE DEEP BREATHS

MORE CONFIDENCE

the list goes on and on and on

Yayy!!!

This will be the BEST decision you will ever make, Matt. I'm 91 days in (cold turkey + Allen Carr's book) and still can't believe I've finally done it :D My best friend is still smoking and I honestly don't even want one after smoking for nearly 30yrs. If you are ready for it, you WILL do it and hopefully never look back. The hardest thing in the first few weeks is learning to relax without a cig or food lol but it does pass. Good Luck xx
