My first day

Hi it's my first day of not smoking. I wanted to quit for a wile now. I've been feeling sick an not enjoying my cigi for about a month, but I kept smoking anyway. I have stopped enjoying my food and had lost any appetite I might have had long time ago. And my financial situation is not good at the moment so finally I decided to quit smoking. This day has been hard but I'm feeling proud of myself keeping myself away from cigarettes. And I feel I have already saved my money by doing this. Today I just was trying to keep myself occupied with housework and later on I had to go to work. At work I didn't took my brake and I kept drinking my favourite soft drink whenever I had a kraiving. I am worried about tomorrow I hope I'll manage to keep myself occupied and won't give in.

    Woke up this morning first thing I thought about was a fag it passed all I keep saying to myself it's my routine that's the habit not the nicotine I'm feeling strong not like any other time I've tried to stop it's mind over matter and I will write down things to do just incase I get weak thanks for the encouragement it means a lot😊

  • The habit will pass in a couple of weeks as you adjust your routine, as each day goes by it will get easier, you are doing great!
