The five days leading up to the date I had set for quitting smoking were harder than actually quitting. The fear of giving up was actually what caused the most pain. After I got over the fear of giving it up, the rest was easy. The worst symptom of giving up has been insomnia, initially I could get no sleep, but as the nicotine has left my system I gradually was able to get some sleep to the point that I now get a full nights sleep. I now feel, I can give it up for good. To everyone out there who is quitting or thinking about quitting, you can do it, you know you can, self belief is very important as well as being persistent and having the will to see it through. I relied heavily on this site at the beginning, reading the stories really helped me to stay positive. After two weeks without a smoke I now feel confident and strong enough to not ever go back to smoking. Thankyou and God bless.
