Ok day one-ers!! I wanted to say good luck!!
When I first quit I used this forum a LOT!! Today I couldn't remember my log in details!!! Times have changed so much!!
I quit 11 months ago and still going strong and actually now I don't really get any cravings!! In fact I know I will never EVER smoke again!
Day one came and went about 10 times. I would smoke 20 the day before and clear cigs out of my house and yet by 930 the next day be at the shop buying more!! I smoked on and off for 20 years up to 20 a day
Then suddenly I did it. Attempt 11 in about 15 days I think, but I cracked day one, day two and three were easy, then it got harder, about day 11 was my crisis day, how could it not be two weeks already!!??
Then suddenly 'the quit' doesn't become your sole focus. You realise you haven't thought about it for 5 mins, 10 mins even half an hour.
Now? Now as I say I can't remember the forum URL my login or the date I quit. I remember smoking made me cough, smell and spend money! Yes maybe I have put on a few pounds but for a secret smoker it's amazing how many people have noticed a difference in me without knowing why .. 'You look healthier/ happier etc'
Don't give yourself a hard time if you don't manage it on day one, you have time to try again, I went cold turkey and strongly believe it's the best way if you can but if not no worries do whatever helps you!
What so I miss? Nothing .. I look at those smokers in the rain and wish they could stop too, life is so much happier, things taste better and you are so much warmer too!!
Good luck, seriously I am so weak. If I can do it, you all can too! TVH x
