No Smoking Day

day 8

Hi im on day 8.. first few days went ok but the last day or two im just feeling quite sad and a bit angry too.. I cant say that im having cravings..i just have an empty sad feeling. I dont want to smoke. I just dont want to feel like this. My skin is looking better already. I am eating way too much though. Craving chocolate. This is my third attempt. longest attempt lasted 15 months. Im doing this cold turkey. Had a few drinks last night. Then was feeling very angry. Normally im a social smoker. I avoided smoking but am left with this angry/sad feeling. Hoping this will get easier

Welcome suesue14 and congratulations on over 1 week quit, that is great! What you are feeling is perfectly normal and as each day passes it will get easier, I promise. I too wrote my first post here on Day 8 as I was pulling hair out - I am now 16 months quit :)

Keep busy, lots of water, deep breathing and bit of exercise AND knowledge on what is happening are all vital in our quits

Hi,, I am now on day 8, some good days, some not so good.

Yesterday, despite sitting through a difficult legal meeting, I was ok. Today, having fun with my 3yr old grandson, I woulnt normally smoke, but am having massive cravings.

Keep eating as well, which is not good, especially with Xmas goodies still about!

One day, one step at a time. When I've cracked the cigs, I'll sort the weight out hopefully

Good luck all

Good attitude dillyd - any weight gain can be dealt with at a later stage when you are well comfortable in your quit :) Keep up the great work!


Thank you, know I can do this, but so hard!.

Really good to know someone is out there listening, when I'm tearing my hair out.
