Day 3. Feel better than i thought!

So, here it is. This is the day I have been dreading, as it's supposed to be the worst day and the day most people fall of the wagon.

I have only been up an hour, but to be honest I don't feel as bad as I did yesterday.

Not sure how I will be as the day goes on. But I am feeling positive at the moment!!

I will smack Day 3 in the face ! :-)

Have a good & cig free day! :) :) :)

  • It's good that you are being positive because that is the main aspect of quitting in my eyes. Plus don't look at it as losing something, eg nicotine, more you are gaining everything - money, status, self-esteem, better health, live longer etc etc etc :)

  • Go Michelle.....be flexible with your approach.....I was determined to go CT, but had such a bad night last night that I have slapped a patch on today and feel positive.....still got 14 hours left but am in a good place at the moment.... stay strong...

  • I had day 3 yest. It was hard but I managed and so can you. Good luck:)

  • Michelle,

    EVERYONE is completely right in what they say but we are all different.

    Don't dread what hasn't happened. You will have a good day and we are all routing for you.

    Really like the 3 response trick Kat talked about, this site gets better and better :)

    Hi Rich,

    There is alot of pressure to go CT from society and ultimately that has contributed alot to my failings in past quits, sure Nic O'tine is gone after 3 days but its the psychological addiction thats the hardest to crack, I hope you still feel so proud of yourself..... I too am in the patch gang I have come to realise that it doesnt matter what vehicle we use as long as we are all heading for the same destination xxx

  • Hi Donna, I totally agree.

    My partner is quitting also but he needed to use NRT, ultimately he smoked a lot more than I did. I think who cares how anybody quits, as long as you are quitting is all that matters!

  • Agreed - as long as you aren't puffing on a fag then you are winning (well, unless you're replacing fags with heroin, you're probably not going to win that way... ;))

    I bought a e-cig/vaporiser thing for my quit. I used it intermittently the first couple of days which I think helped more psychologcally than anything (certainly didn't help to prevent the quitting flu) but I haven't even touched it today and I'm not sure I even will! Just having it there seems to make me feel better.
