Day 400 today…trust me it does get a lot easier ! I was at a party last week and I noticed how less anxious I was *not* smoking and less stressed! Usually in a new situation when I smoked I would have cigarettes before to calm me down and during and after . I still like to have mile stones . I know at the start, a day is forever but please have faith in yourself. Put the effort in to treat your...
Hey friends 🌻 hope everyone is coping during this crazy time in life globally.
It's been up and down but....
Wow.... I feel amazing. Now and then I think... I'd love a smoke with my husband...but no... I busy myself with our beautiful kids, keep busy doing many things around the house, knitting scarves for my babes, back to work after school hols, rewarding myself with a nice glass of wine.......
1 week cold turkey done👍 After smoking ~15 cigarettes a day for 20 years I’m feeling very excited for my future. Cravings have really been quite minimal and can ride it out by sipping a cup of tea or just distracting thoughts. Definitely embracing the NOPE!
12 days without cigarettes. Today I had the longest walk in years. 14,682 steps on pedometer. Most one stretch. It feels good, my breathing is certainly better but not quite yet. Looking forward for the one month smoke free.
On to my 4th Day, Cold Turkey here - tough! tough! Been having headaches, cough and a cold, to add to it, it's my Vaccination Day, today!
Been smoking since I was 21 y.o. and I'm turning 37 this year! Typically 10-sticks per day.
All the Best guys 👊👊
Going from 15 to 2 smokes a day, I'm pretty happy with. Taking zyban does help but it keeps me awake at night. I'm not sure if it's because I've never taken anything like it before but it does make me feel a little strange. I started taking two, day one of my second week but WOW....way to strong.
I'm going to stick to just one and consult my doctor whether to continue taking them or not. Maybe u...
today I had some administrative work t finalize downtown and I had some hours waiting. Usually I would smoke like 10 cigarettes during that waiting time, but today I only had a tiny itch for a cigarette that lasted few seconds, when somebody near me lit a cigarette. To be honest I didn't give it a second thought but I drank like 2 liters of water. This seems to help.
10 days so far.
9 days with no cigarettes. I have beed smoking for 40 years and this is my 3rd attempt. Tried medications, patches and other things to no avail. 9 days ago I just decided to stop. Few cravings only and now they are getting less and less. What helped me during the first week was going to bed early, very early as I used to smoke a lot in the evening.
Reading previous posts for strength and support. Stopped counting my quit attempts but feel exhausted from the endless battle and need to make this time count. Coping well today, cold turkey, and certainly feel ready to be an ex-smoker. Hope to stay strong 💪
The longer I go without a puff the stronger I get. Today is day 35 cold turkey. I can hardly believe it. Have a magical day everyone 🌅
