Day 4

Hi all!

Ahhhh i am absolutely buzzing :) i am on day 4 now of no smoking, and i am so frigging PROUD OF MYSELF!

On day 1 i felt absolutely fine, managed to find a lot of stuff to keep me busy which was good. I cooked a shepherds pie for dinner and read a book and generally kept busy, and before i knew it the day was up and i was snuggled down in bed.

Day 2 was a little difficult, i just felt a little down. I'm normally a pretty chirpy person and everyone at work kept asking what was up, which was sweet of them, and by talking about why i felt crap (giving up smoking) i had a lot of encouragement which helped me through a crappy day.

Day 3 was fine, i ended up binge watching some TV last night and although i wasnt 'busy' the cravings were minimal.

And here we are on Day 4. I am currently reading 'The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr) after being recommended it by a work colleague. and it is really changing my mental thought process. The first couple of days i almost felt like i was missing out, but now i can believe i ever put those dirty things in my mouth. Gross.

Thank you everyone for your support :) NOPE :D

  • HI! Another UK quitter here...about 26 days for me now (I think?!) using an e-cig. Well done to you, especially if you've gone cold turkey. I posted a few days ago about feeling a bit of a fraud for quitting but still inhaling nicotine. I'd love to read the Alan Carr book if you could send it to me? My email address is kerryjess@aol.com

  • Your finding the actions Jess. Reading Allen Carr, posting here, sharing thoughts/feeling. Open for support. For me that all takes the power out of the addiction, especially early days in. Thanks for mentioning book, may have a little read myself over the weekend. Wasn't enough on it's own for me, when I first read. But I really responded to a lot of the text..Cutting through the mis-information and lies we can tell ourselves. Powerful. Go well your doing great :O)

  • Thank you! :) and yeah the book is really powerful and really gets down to the nitty gritty! It's brilliant :) xx
