Stay strong

Posted in Quit experiences 21 Jun 2021

It’s been over 24 hours since I’ve quit cold turkey. But of a struggle and I don’t know how long it will last. Used to smoke 10 a day, let’s hope this lasts.

    Hi charliedach for me day 1 was the hardest day 2 was a little easier and day 3 was easier again. Hang in there it WILL get easier. Do something to distract yourself. Stick with us ❤️

    Whether it lasts is up to you.
    You have to want to quit to maintain the quit. Anyone can who truly wants change. We find ways to do what we want to and excuses to do what we do not want to do. That's life! No pain no gain as they say.......still quitting can be easy with the right attitude. Take pride in every step closer to accomplishing your goal, just as any other challenge in life.

    So true, words of wisdom! Thank you! You’re right it’s just like any challenge in life but I’m not quite through it yet! I haven’t given in but I’m still not quite out of the woods yet.

    Welcome Charlie, it will last as long as you want it to. For some it is a struggle, for others, it was easy. I learned along the way to say quietly or loudly or even writing it down. (each and every day), was the NOPE mantra (not one puff ever) this took me to a long term approach, which made it so much easier as I continued. Congratulations.

    Yes that’s true, thanks. It’s been about 48 hours now, so still going strong!

    Hi Charliedachimney. If you want this bad enough then you will get there. Please know that it will get worse before it gets better , but remember your brain has to relearn how to cope without nicotine. The withdrawals if embraced opposed to feared will be easier to get through. Before you know it you will be well and truly through to the other end. Good luck, and remember: Keep At It You’ve Got This!!
