Day 8

Just going into day 8 (CT) and it's nowhere near as tough as it was a few days ago. Mind I have forgotten a few times that I no longer smoke and have got up to go outside to have a fag and then I remember that's not me anymore. The cravings aren't too bad either, they're more like fancying a fag, rather than a craving. Definitely manageable and not that often really.

I'm still determined to keep going and it can only get easier. Last week was tough and felt as if it went on forever, especially the first two days.

I'm loving not smoking. I actually have found it very liberating. It's great not having to wonder when I'll get the opportunity to have a fag. I don't smell of smoke anymore and I've hardly had to go to the cashpoint for money.

Onwards and upwards!

    Excellent! So what's the crisis, girl? :D

    I can empathise with every sentence. I went out to the kitchen tonight for a drink...and found myself standing in the garden with my coat on (ready to have a smoke).

    I don't remember a thing :D

    Lol. Daft apeths, aren't we?

    You're one of the new crop of ultra-positives here...(I'm one too)...see you in the Penthouse!!

    Cheers, Steve

  • Well done Crisis, as I always say on here I am in TOTAL admiration for people who go CT, it's surely the hardest way to do it but once you crack that barrier and are just dealing with the psychological addiction it's the best and cleanest way to quit...like u said today is not as bad as the first couple of days, this is a really positive attitude and one that will see you through to the penthouse, brilliant stuff! Keep at it :) x

  • CT might be hard, but I found it the most effective way. The first few days were actually traumatic for me, but from the fourth day onwards I was secure in the knowledge that all nicotine was out of my body and therefore I had no physical need, urge or compulsion to replenish previous nicotine levels by smoking. It was now entirely a matter of personal choice. I could, and have continued to, chose not to smoke.

    Good luck in your quit. Stick at it. As you have already correctly surmised, the worst times are behind you.
