    Hello and welcome Red12. Your feelings are pretty typical. It will pass in time. Your body is missing that jolt of nicotine which brought pleasure. Nicotine is the addiction, but you also need to accept the change psychologically. Quitting needn't be difficult if you truly embrace the concept of being a non-smoker. Too many people don't know how they will cope with the discomfort and the voids smoking leaves in our day. Replace the habit with a good habit. Deep breaths , a call, a game or exercise. Above all embrace the idea and stay positive. You won't regret it. Read and learn. I can Quit really does work. We quit. we know that you can too.

    Red12, the first week is the hardest. You have made it to day 5 so keep going.. you’re almost there. Your body is changing a lot this week, but soon enough you’ll start to feel better.

    Hi I was terribly dizzy and Im so happy you have made it to Day 5. Well done. I remember my Day 5 and reading a post about someone being on Day 231. I thought my god will I ever get there? Im here today so dont give up Positive affirmation everytime you think about a smoke tell yourself I dont Smoke. EVERYTIME - out loud if you can. It still works for me today and I dont have to say it much anymore.

    Its your body repairing itself. Hang in there. It will soon pass

    What Nuts said. It will pass gradually, now it's just your mind playing tricks on you. Believe it or not - the worst is over by now and if you made it this far there's no point of getting back to the start.

    That’s a fantastic effort. Your head is just re-adjusting. It won’t be long now and you will start to feel better 😀

    my advice is to listen to this song!!

    Don't wanna be an American idiot
    Don't want a nation under the new mania
    And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
    The subliminal mind-f*ck America
    Welcome to a new kind of tension
    All across the alien nation
    Where everything isn't meant to be okay
    Television dreams of tomorrow
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow
    For that's enough to argue
    Well maybe I'm the brother America
    I'm not a part of a redneck agenda
    Now everybody do the propaganda
    And sing along to the age of paranoia
    Welcome to a new kind of tension
    All across the alien nation
    Where everything isn't meant to be okay
    Television dreams of tomorrow
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow
    For that's enough to argue
    Don't wanna be an American idiot
    One nation controlled by the media
    Information Age of hysteria
    It's calling out to idiot America
    Welcome to a new kind of tension
    All across the alien nation
    Where everything isn't meant to be okay
    Television dreams of tomorrow
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow
    For that's enough to argue
