Hi you good things,
I'm on day 13 without smoking. I'm feeling kind of antsy. Well, a bit aggressive. Luckily I live alone, so after pacing and general swearing and looking for a way to curb this, I thought I'd check in with people who are on the same journey. OK. Cheese has calmed me.
Day 56 (week 8)nicotine free.
such an achievement for me.
i once found going an hour with out a cigarette difficult.
so very pleased with the progress i have made.
thank you all for the support you have so freely given.
Entering day 6, got to thinking about how i was feeling the day before i stopped smoking to how i feeling now after 5 days of freedom. i remember the lethargy, no motivation except to light up then the coughing and phlegm while i was "enjoying the first 1 of the day" What a joke, my old pal Nic Tine allowed me to lie to myself again and again.

Day 35 Today of no smoking. Day 1 nicotine free. Today I ditched the lozenges, I told myself time to take the plunge and yep no guts, no glory.

I went 20 days without a smoke and slipped up on the weekend
Tomorrow I start my quit plan

ODAAT - Remember that "One Day at a time". I'm on Day 21; after 25 years of smoking. The difference on this quit this time, no nicotine replacement therapy. it was so much easier after Day 3. I think NRT just teases you and eventually becomes a habit. Just do it cold turkey.
Hard, yes; work it YES!
Well i happy to say i have make the 6 weeks mark.
Besides a few weeks ago when i was extremely intoxicated and recall placing a ciggerett in my mouth and lighting it,then finishing it.(dont recall the taste or anything else about experience ,only the complete shame when i woke up next day)
I have done ok .
Hi all, well today is day nine and after day 2 I thought this is going ok, Im using patches but as each day goes by I am finding it harder not easier, is it just me or is that normal. I am still trying to stay strong but sometimes my brain tells me it's all too hard. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated 😁
