6 days 12 hours of going Cold Turkey

Purplehazzy2 YEAR WINNER

I am very happy right now that I'll make it to 1 week in next 12 hours. I didn't think I'd do it. I didn't think I could ever live a day without smoking Because my life was too stressful. But here I am going almost a week. Feels good :)

The withdrawals are still giving me hard time but it doesn't seem as worse now except the insomnia part. But I am hoping I'll sleep atleast an hour more tonight than last night.

I'm eating a lot. My tummy feels full but my mouth wants to chew something all the time. I know I'll gain a lot of weight but I'd rather be chubby than addicted.

Thank you guys for all the support.

This place is amazing. The replies come really fast and everyone is very helpful. I am glad I found this site.

Goodnight all you lovely people!!!

Don’t worry about putting on weight, it happened to me when I quit but it will drop off again and even itself out......night night.

I actually did. A little better than earlier nights. :)



I struggle with insomnia too and have been having some real horrible nightmares . I can't remember ever having nightmares but had quite a few since I stopped smoking. Hoping that this phase will end soon and I can enjoy a good nights sleep. Thank you for mentioning the insomnia, feels better knowing it's a side effect of withdrawal and that I am not alone in suffering from this .

Ho Modes,

Thank you for the reply.

I think the sleeping problems get easier gradually. I slept a little better yesterday than earlier nights although I woke up 4 times.

It does get better :)

Well done purplehazzy a week smokefree is a fantastic start to your new smokefree life. Keep strong & remember not one puff ever (n.o.p.e) 🙂
