Into day 4

Although I am trying to take the approach that quitting isn't a big deal I do still have to acknowledge how proud I am of myself. I am not going to say its easy, but it is different. I feel secure in the fact that I can never have a single puff, which means failure is not an option. I do get cravings but nothing that have me wanting to strangle people lol.

To anybody starting out or considering quitting, every single quit is different. A lot of it is what you make it. Keep the right frame of mind and you will get there. It may be hard, it may be a breeze but from what I have read on this forum, and from people I know, it is worth it.:D

    It is indeed worth it Mark:)

    so glad to see you trying again one of the key points is to never give up trying because you will get there

    just remember to come on here and post whenever you need to and focusing on one day at a time too

    onwards and upwards is the only way to go

    :)

  • Always be proud of yourself, it's a great thing you're doing :) Soon be a week!!

  • YAY! well done to you! :)

    My friend who once quit for two years told me that after 2 weeks it is a breeze but getting there is a pig! that kind of puts it in perspective I think! xxx

  • Hi Mark

    Well done on your quit so far we all have different reasons for quitting but we all end up with the same reward freedom from a drug that is making us ill and eventually killing the smoker and if that isn't bad enough it takes all our money. It's been 8 weeks for me in a few hours as a non-smoker and I have already had quite a few benefits, one in particular I can now walk a lot further before the pain becomes unbearable, that's one of the gifts the nicodemon gave me bad circulation he just doesn't like giving anything that's nice! Well he is out of my life now, keep him out of your's. Good Luck

  • .....and you should feel proud of yourself, Mark, 4 days is a fantastic achievement, well done!:)

    Yes, there may well be ups and downs, but as you say, keeping in the right frame of mind does help. Make sure to keep your guard up too.......the nicodemon has been known to play some pretty sneaky tricks to lure you back into his smelly clutches.:eek::o
