I am now on day 3

Well from the minute I woke this morning at 6.30 all I've thought about is smoking, arguing with myself in my head thinking a couple of puffs on a cigarette won't hurt. No I haven't given in but please someone tell me today is going to get better. I feel as though this stopping smoking is hell a good friend rung this morning saying he would come over for the weekend and I've said no as he smokes. So now it's going to be another long weekend on my own. Sorry everyone I think I'm feeling sorry for myself .

  • Its totaly normal to feel like this claire.

    The strength of the addiction we all have to nictotine can often be underestimated. The only thing i can really suggest is that you remember that THIS IS TEMPORARY.

    Every day your body gets healthier, this first week is called hell week for a reason. Just stick it out, and after day 7 you will be able to look back and see the difference between day 1 and day 7.

    This does not mean you're gonna feel good on day 7! It will still suck, but you will be able to see progress at least.

    Stay strong.

  • Well today was not what I expected, my closest friends from where I lived last year turned up unexpectedly this afternoon and they both smoke. The inner voice in me kept saying go smoke with them and just a couple of drags won't hurt but I'm pleased to say I didn't give in, how I wanted too though. It was lovely seeing them but so so difficult and I had already told my friend this morning not to come over so not to be tested.

  • Congratulations on not smoking with your friends. It's tough I know but just keep resisting it will get easier
