Thank you 😊
Welcome and best wishes, Lucky.
Thank you i am in england so am now starting my first day this very grey damp thursday morning
I'm across the pond here in Ireland Lucky, sun just rising now on a very mild January morning.🌅
Hope day 1 goes well for you 🚭
😊 nice 1 love the irish especially mid march when you come over for the festival at chelts i go every year this year i will go but wont smoke 😊
Ah no way Luckyfish, would ya believe my hubby is heading over to Cheltenham for his brothers stag in March, its like going to Vegas for him!!
How is Day 1 going for you?
Cheltenham in march is the most amazing time i go down on the monday evening stay in the same hotel every year go to the four days of the festival and come home on the saturday 😊 have been to vegas twice and chelts in march is better . The smoking today has been pretty hard tbh 😔 cant wait to go to bed tbh so i have done a day 😳
Great idea to go to bed, I had many an early night in the first few weeks of my journey - it works wonders - the first 3 days are tough physically but after that the nicotine should be out of your system and then the mental battle starts as your body and mind begin the gradual process of rewiring, repairing and rewiring.
Drink loads and loads of water, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and for the short term and things settle down avoid caffeine, alcohol and sugary foods as these intensify and bring on pretty severe cravings. Stay close to us and read up as much as you can here and elsewhere - knowledge is power!

Have read that one 👍 thank you for your help today am off to bed at 9pm 😂😂😂 talk tomoz
How is Day 2 going for you Luckyfish ?
I am struggling 😔 but still not smoking
Stay strong Lucky and just take it hour by hour, even minute by minute if needs be, put on your favourite music, watch a comedy movie, keep the mind occupied.
Seen on social media that Robbie Williams is giving up smoking too, think he is 1 week down and posted a video of his bumper adult colouring book to keep his hands busy when cravings hit! Jigsaws too are good to keep the mind busy if you have the patience for it.
You are doing great
Thank you 😊
Hey Luckyfish - Day 4 now, nicotine out of your system, how are you feeling/doing now?
Yes still in the game been watching footie all day stayed in all weekend no alchol no pubs but was worth it still finding it tough but am in it for the long haul 😊
That's it Lucky, keep up that mindset, it really will stand to you and be the secret to your success
