I’m finally doing it

I’m a week into my quit and although I’ve wanted to give up smoking for years, I feel really determined this time. I’ve been under the weather for a couple of weeks and it’s really spurred me on to get on with it, as I’ve realised my health is more important than smoking. I really didn’t want to go into 2018 smoking so I’m pleased to have made it 7 days! Wishing you all a very merry Christmas!! 🎅🏻🎅🏻

That's awesome! Me too I didn't want to go into 2018 smoking so I decided to quit on 11th December so on 11th January I could say that I didn't smoke for 1 month already :)

That’s great Alex, a month will be a great milestone to look forward to halfway through jan.. I’m feeling really positive and looking forward to it, instead of dreading it and feeling like I’m missing something. We can do it 😊 Have a really great Christmas 😁

Thanks roisin, that’s kind of you. I’m going cold turkey as have tried all the nrt’s and always go back to smoking. I just want to get on with it and be nicotine free as soon as possible.

Nice to meet you. One brave lady going cold turkey. You sound like me sick of smoking but feel like you have something missing. Im sure as we comtinue our quit journey these feelings will go. I do think having a PMA helps with quitting. Logically what are missing. Smelling having less money beinging controlled to name but a few.

Thank you all for your replies, you’re all so kind especially so close to xmas!

So far I’m doing good, I’m glad to say I haven’t felt like one yet. That said I have been under the weather which has put me off and I’m taking advantage of it!

1st Christmas without smoking in at least 20 years, now that does feel strange! But good.
