On 4th day of cold turkey can be all over the place

Today is day 4 of going cold turkey, very surprised myself that i could do it. The thought of smoking is just like smoking a cigerette, it is constantly on my mind, I feel positive about quitting but i get through the day one hour at a timne and keep telling myself, I have put to many days in to smoke, my husband quit with me and his mild manner has sustained the beast that aroused during craving moments, I also can say rambling on and on must be a part of quiting lol

  • well done keep it up one day at a time

  • A cold turkey quit is not something to be sniffed at so well done you! I was an out and out b**** when I quit cold turkey but it does fade...eventually! Keep going as you are doing brilliantly and one hour at a time means that each hour you tell yourself to wait another hour is an hour closer to forever 😁

  • Thank you so much!! feels good to chat with someone that knows what I'm going through and give me good feedback again thanks

  • Well done you day 4 cold turkey is something to be proud of! One day at a time and before you know it, it will be 4 weeks ☺

  • Hi I gave up cold turkey 14 weeks ago after 34 yrs smoking and it. Was very though going but well worth it now I feel brilliant no cravings lots of energy now it's as if I never smoked so keep up the good work for its worth the journey πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Boy am I glad I found you guys, you can vent, fuss, feel sorry for yourself, self pity, be proud, any emotions you going through fand find the positive support from you guys. With that being said and the immediately support i receive after posting for the first time, and reading others older post, I have chosen at the moment i know to be in control of my destine , I choose not this addiction to continue to win , remain smoke free and realize that it's a victory instead of the dreadful feeling of each moment is a lifetime, thanks everbody, I will succeed and I will try to be positive especially my feeling

    It's crazy why am I mad it seems about doing something that I know is great! and definitely good for me!!!
