    Day 3

    Posted in Staying quit 20 Aug 2013
    8 Comments

    Hi, we'll made it through day 3. I actually thought I've finished the dishes time to go out for a smoke and then realised I don't smoke anymore lol. Last night I ate dinner then an hour later ordered heaps of take away so I wouldn't smoke. I went shopping today for healthy food. I used to smoke about 20 a day so I am surprised only having about 6 cravings a day. Today I had water or distract...

    Day 2

    Hi, made it through day 2, had cravings this morning even went looking for a hidden smoke, luckily I'd thrown them all out, so happy now that I didn't have one. The next craving I thought go and buy more food but couldn't bothered, funny that I could always be bothered if it was for smokes. I had water instead, only had about another 4 cravings in the day and distracted myself which s...

    Hi, today's my last day of smoking, this will be about my 60th attempt but second on here. I found the support so good I nearly made it but it wasn't a good time for me. Now I'm more positive and feel I will make it. I've just come in from having a smoke and didn't really want it. Have loaded up with lots of muesli bars and bottles of water for tomorrow plus I'm not arou...

    Starting again

    Hi I'm back after my last attempt a few months ago trying to quit next Sunday. I feel I can do it this time so slowly finishing my last pack. It will be so nice to be a non smoker, even though I'm smoking now I still hate the smell so it will be nice to be rid of that too. Good luck everyone.

    Not off yet

    Hi everyone, I didn't quit on July 1st, trying to get in the right mind set again, but I'll be back here soon. I worked out not smoking also saves you time, if you smoke 25 a day, it will take you three minutes or more to have one so that's 75minutes more you have to yourself work out how much time you spend smoking. Hi converse how are you going? Good to see you still here, we'll done.

    Hi, had a set back so am planning to quit Sunday, so mad with myself for smoking when I made it to 6 days but like they say never quit quitting, stay strong everyone as its harder to go through those first days again, especially the moodiness.

    Hi I was going so good off till day 6, had one then believe it or not a packet. I regret it so much as I had never got that far before. So don't have one puff or one smoke as it leads back to smoking. I have learnt my lesson and will set a new quit date, I'm so angry with myself as I was so close and want to quit again before it get too bad. Thank you all for your support before hope not to di...

    Hi everyone, can't believe I'm day 6 as a non smoker. I've never made it this far it's all the support here that keeps me going. I did slip and have one bit I've put that behind me was proud of myself when I sat with smokers at work and refused when offered. I still sit with smokers as they are my main friends and eat muesli bars. It's so funny how strong the smell is on smokers, I could even sme...

    I step back

    Hi thank you all for your support, today was my fourth day, ended up having one as a friend picked me up for work I had a flat tyre. I didn't really want the second half which was good. At work I stayed strong inside, eating instead of going out with smokers. So even though I regret going back a step I am still determined to stay off lotsa hugs to you all.

    Hi just had a huge fight with husband and desperate for a smoke. Have come on here to avoid craving. Lucky I have no money or I may be down the shop buying some. I keep reminding myself that it's my third day off, I'm glad I don't have any in the house that was always my downfall that emergency smoke one puff led to one smoke led to one packet. I don't know what to say next but will stay till cra...
