How is everyone's first couple of days into the New Year going then?
For those of you who have already stopped smoking, how good must you feel on entering the New Year as a non-smoker? Depending on when you quit, you will have already got the worst behind you and should now be feeling fewer cravings Remember to stay positive!
Anybody who quit on the 1st January? You are now into your 2nd day, well done! If you've gone cold turkey (without NRT) then the last of the nicotine will be leaving your system today. The cravings may be feeling more intense too, but don't worry as this is supposed to happen. The more cravings you get under your belt, the easier it will become.

How about those of you who have stopped and started and stopped and started again? Remember that this is pretty normal and as long as you never give up giving up, then you'll get there in the end. Try and see you quit attempts as practice runs ready for the real thing On average, most people have around 7 practice attempts before they actually succeed, there has also been studies in America saying it can take around 12 attempts. At the end of the day, it will take you as long as it takes you and when the time is right, the penny will drop and everything will fall into place for you. The main thing is that you maintain the momentum and 'get back on it' as soon as you can.
