🚭 7 1/2 hours into quitting

I’ve been a 20-30 a day smoker for 21 years. I’m not sure why I wanted today to be the day. I don’t feel very optimistic about my chances but I hope I can be smoke free 💜

Hello NLondon83, welcome to Quit Support and well done on your decision to quit smoking. Its not the easiest thing to do but its a whole lot better with support.

Can I suggest that you have a look through the pinned posts which you will find either to the right or at the bottom of your screen depending on the type of device you are using. There you will find lots of useful tips and information to support you in your quit.

If you haven't already done so, make a plan for how you are going to avoid those testing moments, such as changing your morning drink from coffee to tea, get up and clean your teeth straight after a meal, go for a walk when the cravings appear, remember cravings last no-longer than 5 to 6 minutes, so distract yourself...play a game on your phone!

Drink plenty of water, to keep you both hydrated and help flush out the toxins caused by smoking and keep coming on here for support, information, advice, for a laugh or even a moan.

Lastly, have faith in yourself, you can do this, if you really want to and we really want to help you.

Bye for now

I appreciate the support but I feel three separate admin messages are excessive.

Then again my tolerance isn’t at its best right now due to withdrawal

It’s a tricky one - for me I am really trying to savour the tastes of other things instead, like a nice hot coffee or a great dinner etc. It’s about changing the mentality and remembering you’re free from smoking now and able to do what you want.

I know that’s easier said than done and to be fair I’m only 8 hours in, but just stick at it and you’ll be feeling a whole world different!

Yes thank you. Just waiting now to get to 24 hours (11.27)

I fear that the most difficult time will be between now and 48 hours. I have woken up not wanting to smoke. So that’s good x
