I've finally hit day 3!

I've lost count of the amount of times I've tried quitting, but I always broke on day 3. Nothing I ever did could get me past it. Today, is day 3. It's nearly over and I didn't break. I cried at my boss for no apparent reason (Thankfully she understood and just sat with me until it passed), I kicked an empty box clean across the store room and the shakes have got worse but I held firm.

I'm so proud of myself and feeling quite euphoric for finally beating day 3! I've always said if I could beat day 3 it'll carry me through the week, and if I beat week 1 then it'll carry me through week 2.

The best bit about today: My smell came back. I can smell everything properly, including the co worker who smokes. It made me realise that that's how I used to smell. My local coffee shop smells AMAZING though! I don't want to smoke and not be able to smell that coffee mixed with cake smell! lol

    You're doing just flipping brilliantly hun!!

    It's lovely that you're feeling high on it 'cos you're doing something fab!!

    Oh and isn't it lovely to be able to smell properly again?

    There's sooo many lovely (and some not so lovely, lol) smells :D

  • Well done Reapy. You've survived and coped for 3 days without nicodemon.:D:D

    That is such an achievement, it really is. So you cried and banged about a bit., so what !!

    You keep going like this, take it one day at a time.:) Congratulations. bb x

    Oh trust me I know, I have a 3 year old and a house cat! The flat has been fabreezed several times already today lol

    Getting past my personal block means I'm going to be less likely to give in now, why go this far and not follow through? That, and everyone I know have been told to do everything they can to stop me from smoking, at all costs. One friend's even threatened to throw water at me if she catches me lmao!

    I don't know what's changed this time. Maybe it's my mindset, maybe it's the amazing support I get here (and knowing I can rant to people that understand if I need to is strangely liberating), but I'm going for gold. I'm so much more confidant about this this time. :D

  • You GO girl. This is IT xxxxx:D

  • :D

    Fantasic stuff Reapy!!

    I can identify with you as I was the same (never managed to get past 48 hours). Now you've broken through the pain barrier you can go all the way I'm sure of it. :)

  • Hi Reapy,

    You're doing just FAB :)

    Keep it up! It gets easier, too. Glad you've beaten your personal best!! :D

    I made the mistake of popping into the local bakery on my way into work this morning, there goes a large chunk of the £12 I saved this week not smoking! I regret nothing!! LMAO

    Ooooh! A curry! All those lovely spices!!

    Thank you all so much for your support, it's really helping me keep strong. I don't post on others threads much (Mostly because I don't know how to help), but reading what others are going through and how they've come through it is giving me so much inspiration. I often log on, during the day when I'm having a weak moment and just read how someone came through it. Xx

    Lol you sound like me this morning - I went into Lidl on the cake run this morning and came out with a gorgeous loaf, a blueberry muffin for me and some rolls for home.

    The smell and the taste was worth more than all the fags in the world :D

    You enjoy yourself!!
