Day 3 over and out

Today wasn't too bad really. Had to survive a couple intense, but nonsense conversation with myself. A few times I even automatically reached for my cigarettes and had to say to myself "oh yeah I forgot I don't smoke anymore" and that felt weird - but good. Dealt with a headache and hot flashes on and off most of the day, hoping that was just the last of the nicotine messing with my body and not a return of menopause:eek: Totally wiped out , so I'm calling it a night . Thanks everyone and Y'all have a good day

Hi Que , those early symptoms of quitting can indeed be torrid, but your pushing on to your first week, in my book that's amazing.

I so hope today passes without to much incident.

you will start to feel so much healthier soon.

Doing great

Well done to you Que. A day, hour, minute at a time. As needed. My heating up has stopped apart from cutting back the champix. For the first 3 weeks of stopping I carried a full pack on me and never touched it. Eventually gave them away.

Well aren't you the brave one to carry a full pack on you, I couldn't have done it - Luckily when I reached for mine yesterday, it was just an old habit and thank goodness I didn't have any to find or I just may have found myself back in Day 1.

I don't know why this time was different. Previous quits or even having a really bad cold and I would have been in that packet.

And phew to it being habitual for you to look for them. Good going.

Day 5 already, Que! Brilliant stuff - you're doing so well :)

And 76Barbora, welcome :D Are you using any NRT, or is it cold turkey for you? Fabulous work, getting to three days!

Fantastic Que, not far off now.... by the weekend it will probably just be a psychological addiction.... this is what I keep reminding myself when I get an urge.... deep breathing and a piece of fruit perhaps?

The early days are tough, but it's only tough for a short time, after this it really does get better :)

Welcome Barbora, 3 days is an amazing achievement - well done! :)

Thanks Celestine - deep breathing does help, and I'm really am trying to get back to fruit - but for some reason I always end up diving into the carbs.

Oh well maybe by next week things will settle and I can go back to eating better - at least I'm not smoking!!
