Day2 of no smokes or cravings but today I'm a bit teary has any one else experienced this
I have felt the call of the monster tonight. Friday night. Having a couple of beers/wines with my husband.
I still didn't want to have a smoke, but I wanted to be a smoker. Doesn't make sense. But just that total habit of drinking a wine on the patio having a smoke. Pang.
Lucky I threw all the smokes out. Lucky I don't live in walking distance of a shop. Lucky I have my wonderful husband I ca...
While i was out today, a young lady backed her car into mine. When i was a smoker, i would have reached for my smokes and puffed away frantically, believing that it was helping a stressful situation. Today, the thought of a smoke didnt even cross my mind. You dont need to smoke when things go wrong. Another reason to keep smoking, down the drain.
I had tunnel vision when I posted my first comments and excluded your contributions to my success, forgive me for this omission. We all know it takes a community of all of us to win this battle, thank you for helping me make it to this point an I will always lean on you in the future.
In my journey to quit I visualized this moment, celebrating my one year anniversary. It was really hard to make it to this point, when times got tough I had to encourage myself to stay strong in the face of the nicotine urges. I had to remind myself it is never ok to smoke one cigarette, and that social smoking will always lead to addiction. I have always believed that our journey to be free from...
Thanks to all the support I have received from my family, and my friends on this site, the journey has been pretty smooth sailing. Have had some pangs, but they don't last long, and are very minor. Reading the Allen Carr book has been a great help as well.

I think I may be taking the night time tablet too late. I have read on here that some of you take it with your evening meal? Does that mean your dinner?
For instance, I have breakfast at 8am and take my first pill then. I have lunch at 1pm and then my dinner is at 5pm.... should I be taking the second pill after this meal?
Please help. I'm worried because I'm only 5 days in, haven't even starte...

Today is 1/1/2020 my quit date, in the morning I was strong as I never really smoked much until after lunch anyway. Around 3pm I rolled a smoke and smoked half and just had the other half then. I feel a little disappointed in myself but will continue on as the positives are I only smoked 1 cigarette today. Thanks to the i can Quit crew for your emails and support and to all the courageous ...
