Day 5

Day 4 has been awful! I have cried twice, both over actual current things though not because I cant smoke, I think the fact im not smoking just means I cant hide my emotions so I have to express them. shock, horror! Im trying hard not to replace one habbit for another so I try not to snack too much or chew gum 247. trying to be normal minus smoking.

Tried to stay busy, been yoga and went for an hour long walk. texting friends etc as ive just gone into day 5 the cravings have lifted a little.

I don't know why I find day 1, 2 and 3 easy but then start to struggle day 4 onwards? so weird. anyways. another day another step in the right direction. :)

Well done! Almost one week done, it doesn't matter if it was good or bad, it's gone 😝 it's not easy to quit, it's a royal pain in fact, the thing is if you fail, you'll have a lot more day 4 coming up. Say it into yourself 24x7 failure is not an option! Strongs!!!!


Nikki....Ouch I feel it with you but sorry there is now way around only through..... After three days all the nicotine and carbon monoxide is out of your system and all you are left with is emotions and feelings and we need to cope with that ...Terrible but possible....Strongs !!


Nikki are you already packing the bags to move to the next room?
