Hi everyone, made it through day 3. Slept half the day which helped. I know the third day is not huge but it's a big deal to me as I could never get past two days. So feel like I may really quit this time. I remembered the quote from someone on here who said never never ever smoke again, this also helped, so thank you for that. Stay positive everyone.
Hi just have to tell you all I'm so proud of myself, was offered smokes a few times today and refused each time. I thought I've got through day one yesterday I'm not going to repeat doing my first day again. It's such a good feeling when you can stay strong. Now I watch others smoke and think I wish you could give up too. Looking forward to saying I'm off three days tomorrow. Ps ate heaps of...
Hi back again to avoid craving, have to sit a few hours with smokers today, not looking forward to that. Have got plenty of munchies to eat hope that helps. Will think of all the stories from those who have died on why quit .com. I have been one day off now, chat to you when next craving hits. Good luck everyone.
Hi have been reading stories on whyquit.com, these are from people who have died from smoking, some very sad stories, it frightens you when people think they are ok then find out they only have two months to live. Check out this site as their stories will definitely put you off smoking.
Hi back again to avoid a craving, it's been eleven hours just ate chocolate which helped I'm lucky that way I'm thin and can put on a bit of weight. A friend once told me you can focus in dying or focus on living, I keep this in my head now as a positive attitude to stay away from that filthy disgusting habit. Tomorrow I have to sit with smokers for a few hours, I will stay off and count how man...
Hi I know it's only one hour but I'm going to come on here sometimes when I have a craving as a distraction. Reading everyone's stories gives me encouragement so be prepared to be bombarded with me.
Hi everyone. I was supposed to quit may 31st but have been having two a day since but this morning had four then had some advice here there's no grey areas just quit. I thought about that and realised I was really still smoking so I have just wet the rest of my smokes. So I can't get them out of then bin. So thank you all for comments to help me wake up. To myself I will try to be strong and tur...
Hi everyone still on smoke or two a day sun will be trying to stop, want to do it before I start having more. Have been going cold turkey so down from 25 a day. I found to help stop a morning crave try to sleep in a long time and when you wake up you want food more than a cig give as my breakfast was always just a smoke and coffee.
Hi everyone, one week today and still on two a day, one in the morning and one when stressed. I think why bother smoking if I'm only having two but I'm staying positive. All the support from you has helped normally after two days I'd be back up to 25 so it shows your help is working.
HI I finally reached my quit day may 31st. Yesterday stayed in bed all day to avoid smoking and was very moody. Today I did have one, I'm giving up cold turkey so I know I'll turn into a monster for a week or two. I feel if I can get thru 1 week I might make it. No one believes I will give up and I don't blame them as I've tried about 30times in the past year, however having the support here I ...
