Well I got through day 2 with no problems. Client was so relaxed just like old self (he has Alzheimer's, wife has dementia). Took wife to pub for tea and stuck with soda & lime. Here's to day 3 -when I used to fall down but not this time. Mind is set. Thanks guys,hercu,mushen and Matt for sticking with me

Hey CiggieStardust - thrilled for you and delighted to read you are on Day 3, congratulations and huge well done. 17 September is a great day to quit - as I quit 2 years ago cold turkey on 17 September :O :D

The nicotine will be out of your system by the end of today and then the mental battle will begin as your body and mind begins its gradual rewiring, repair and recovery - lots and lots of water, fruit and vegetables and a bit of walk every day to clear the head. Continue to post regularly and read up on the pinned posts and other members journey as knowledge is vital in our quits and knowing what is happening and what to expect

Thanks roisin, you're a good support. Have looked back through previous posts. I think first and foremost i really must give up the smokes. Have had 2 bottles wine tonight and really haven't had any serious cravings for a cigarette. For me in the past smoking and drinking went hand in hand.

Thanks so much Roisin. But had difficult day today. Really wanted a drink then thought ooh yes and cigarette would be very good too. Decided oh no, no cigarettes. May have some wine though. Wine won. Think if anything smoking will have to go first. Reduce wine on way through. But reduce to 1 Day per week.
