I decided tomorrow if going to be my first day of quitting. I already tried today but gave in; I randomly decided in the afternoon to quit and only went five hours.
I am very good at convincing myself to have a cigarette, not even in the typical way. I actually want the weight gain; am a bit skinny, and want a lot of the side effects from quitting. How I usually convince myself to have a smoke is that I tell myself I'm young; am 24 been smoking for five years, and that I have time to quit but I know I don't and need to do it now. It's just really hard to quit when your brain keeps convincing yourself you don't need to at the time.
I've had like over ten attempts the past couple months and have only gone two full days without. It seems the third day is always the hardest for me.
I have a bunch of questions for those that have gone past their third day. How did you stop yourself from smoking right in the morning, did you notice any physical changes in the third day; I am looking forward to healthier skin. Also how do you overcome you convincing yourself to give up? I find myself very persuasive when trying to justify a cigarette. I'm always able to battle like the first ten episodes of cravings but as soon as something stressful happens or I accomplish something I feel I deserve to have a cigarette anad just push the smoking to the next day.
Tomorrow I'm going to post again, because I feel that maybe doing a daily update online might give me motivation to do it. Has anyone found using this forum helps? Sorry I have so many questions band wrote a jumbled mess but this addiction is actually bothering me, I almost wish there was a rehab centre for smokers because I almost need someone to force me to do it.
Any motivation or anecdotes would be appreciated, I enjoy reading the posts freom people who have gone past a week, just reading it makes me want to be able to post there as well.
