Day 4

Well here I go again. I am trying to quit smoking for the third time in my life. Using the patch and it worked the last time so hopefully it will work again. Last time I quit for 4 years before somehow I started smoking again. I used to read the blogs online to get support and pass the time and it seemed to work! This time I figured I would join and actually start posting. Here's to day 4. :)

  • I'm on Day 4 too after 25 years of being shackled to cigarettes and feeling pretty good about things. I've gone cold turkey and been ready to flip out over the last few days :) but Day 4 I feel great. Still have a few urges through the day but then think about my 3 year old son and remember the words that shocked me 'Papa go outside have cigarette' damm he knew cigarette before a whole host of words. No way I'm going back to that never mind the health reasons :) Hope you enjoy your new journey.

  • Thank you!! Good for you going cold turkey I don't think I could do it. I have the urges now with the patch on can't imagine doing it without it! You must be very strong. Good Luck :)

  • Hiya rumbledbee and welcome to quit support😊

    Well done on 4 days cold turkey and it's great to hear you're feeling good. You really are making the best decision for your health and future with your little Son👍🏼

    You and forever are at the same stage, which is terrific as you will be able to help one another. Any problems, just shout or if you need a diversion it's great to read other people's stories to keep you going. Although I think a 3 year old is a very good distraction anyway😁 good luck😊x

  • Hi RumbledBee and a warm welcome to quit support. Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking and having a little 3yr old will surely give you lots of reasons why not to start again :) :)

    Have a read of some of the info under the topic headings as there is lots of info on what the common symptoms of quitting :) :) I found this very helpful when i quit as i thought all i would be in for was a tough time with cravings :D :D

    The one great thing is that nothing lasted for too long :) :) and well worth the perseverance. I quit cold turkey after 40 years of 30 a day - - gosh...that sounds terrible..but i can turn back time...

    All the very best of luck on your quit journey and just sing out if you need a help in any way :) :)
