Day 4 🤗

Day 4 of no smoking (cold turkey) Well it's the third full day without a fag but because I quit half through the day Sunday my app is telling me it's coming into day 4 lol.

So far I've been okay, few struggles but all in all it's been okay. I'm going to Edinburgh Friday for the weekend, will be drinking which is worrying me a bit. Has anyone got any tips on staying off the fags while drinking? That's what has put me back to smoking previously. The person I am going to see is also a smoker

Also how do I get a badge? lol

Thanks x

Great!. Well done!!. Sorted your badge but please post your exact quit date. As admin, we are on and off site and sometimes another admin will do badges if the other is not online. We love helping but all have busy family lives too. 😊😊

Good luck in Scotland and I do agree that a vape is a fantastic back up so early in your quit if you're drinking. I did cold turkey but avoided booze (which isn't hard when you have kids, well?, actually it can go either way but I definitely don't have a social life😳😂).

💪💪🚭🚭

Find a wingman who will smack the back of your had if you even think of lighting one up.

It worked for me.

Just stay determined. All you can do. And don't forget to have fun instead of focusing on fags.... not worth losing a great night over!..xx

Prepare, prepare, prepare!!! That's all I'd say! Good for you, taking your vape with you. I also adopted the Smug Technique when around smokers when I was newly quit, saying to myself 'I'm soooooooo glad I don't have to do that anymore'!! Sounds daft, but it worked as does WOOP (see pinned posts). Have a belting time in Edinburgh.....it's on my bucket list. Much love Poll x.

It's hard the first time you go out drinking and not smoking but you can do it! Tell yourself you would be stupid to have one after getting this far. When I see smokers standing outside it makes me glad I don't smoke anymore and proud that I've done it 😀
