Two weeks today cold turkey

Frankboyd2 Years Smoke Free

Day 3 until day 12 no problem now I seem to be battling four times as many cravings. Not gonna let the crazy voice in my head beat me. I was asked yesterday by a stranger in a shop had I lost something. I was standing patting my pockets presumably in search of cigs that weren't there. . No more I want my life back. Love reading all the posts on here everyday. Just typing this albeit drivel makes me stronger. Thanks people. . Smokefreefrank

hi Frankboyd 2 weeks cold turkey is amazing, I certainly wouldn't have managed it. I found this group a godsend and it definitely helped me through it too. Stay strong and have a lovely weekend 😊

Well done Frankboyd on 14 days cold turkey - I posted my first post here on Day 8 as was pulling my hair out - you are now in the thick of the mental battle as your brain re-wires - for every day now that passes the stronger you will become - just hang in there, I promise, it will get better - stay close to us and post anytime.....

14 days cold turkey......OH YEAH!!!!!!!!

Well done. The mental part of quitting I found to be the hardest part of all. For a while there were triggers everywhere and, or so it seemed, people smoking. This is the time when you have to be on your guard and just plough on. Everything you did as a smoker now has to be done as a non-smoker.

The good news is that this is doable.

You can and will beat this.

You don't have to do it alone either. If you need support, do up a post. ☺

Keep plodding on. 😎
