Day 3 - not feeling as strong

Monring all, got through day 2 but after waking up today I dont feel as positive as yesterday. I have read through again my personal motivation for quitting and that has helped, but just dont feel as mentally strong. I guess the real battle starts a few days into the quit.... time to roll the sleeves up.....:(

Time to really dig those heels in, remember, you are fighting against a plant, you are stronger than a plant! ;) This is exercise for the brain, ****** hard work at first but once you start noticing the rewards it really does get easier. :)

Hi Rich

I have noticed that in general some days are easier than others and there isn't always logic to it! I struggled on day 2 and day 4 mainly (I kept bursting into tears!). Then days 5 and 6 were ok, 7 was hard, 8 easier and then today - who knows! I suppose what I am trying to say is that just because you are struggling today doesn't mean you will tomorrow!

Chin up.... you are doing very well.

Morning Rich, congratulations on getting through the first 2 days.

Today is going to be a good day as you are going to dig deep and start the battle, you will then have completed three days.

Stay strong, you can do it. Well done for getting this far, remember it does get easier :)

Best wishes coming your way

I could just be that the initial excitement of quitting has worn off a bit. The thing is.....this is just another hurdle on the way to becoming a non-smoker. You have to crank it up a gear for today, but do nice things for yourself....treat yourself kindly, and when you go to bed tonight you will feel so proud of having conquered a bad day.

Tomorrow may be a breeze.....not every day is rubbish....honestly! :)

Hi Rich,

Day 3 was a bugger for me too.....but stay motivated and strong....when you have dayS like this, where you think you wont make it, just keep shouting at yourself that you will keep going....and when you wake up on day 4......you will look at Day 3 and say "HA...I BEAT YA!"

I know when the days are tough, its hard to see the way forward....but keep going, as others have said, it does get easier :) Its a hard battle but it is so worth it and so satisfying when you beat the days! :)
