Day 12 SMOKE FREE!!!!!!

Posted in Quit experiences 06 Jun 2013

Hi Everybody!

So far... so good!I'm still taking my 2 daily Champix, I keep drinking lot of water and keeping rice cakes (low cal) next to me to avoid jumping on biscuits and chocolate :)))

Otherwise I still have some weird dreams but nothing bad...they are quite funny actually lol

I would lie if I said that I completly forgot the cigarette... I have some big cravings at some times but managed to forget them by distracting myself, keeping very busy at office, watching tv, drinking water... I also tried to reduce my intake of tea... I used to be an addict, drinking liters of tea during the day and it was of course associated to the cigarette... so i decided to switch to hot choco for a while :) It's ok so far...

It's been 12 days now i did not touch a cigarette but strangely it feels like ages lol don't ask me why... I guess it's psychological mainly..anyway...

In case you have any doubt about this medicine, well i had the same ones before starting but now all gone... this pill is magic.. of course you have to take it very carefully (during/after meals...), otherwise it did wonders with me... Although i have those cravings, I can't stand the smell of tobacco and I love what I've achieved so far.. I feel so fresher in mornings and I enjoy smelling my own perfume all day long lol

Good luck to all!!!!!No matter what, I will resist as much as possible to the cravings, keeping in mind how good I feel NOW :))))

    Also day 12 feeling great. Exercising like a madman. 5 miles on bike then 1 mile slow jog. 4 times a week and golf the other 3 days. Quit for 1 1/2 years then stupid me had a cigarette that triggered another 2 years of smoking. Never again. Never ever have just 1 puff. Cold turkey and feeling great. No sweets and lots of water. I am 62 years young and want to make it to 100. Congrats to all who have quit. Never again. N1p. Never one puff!!!

    Awesome, I can't wait until I'm 12 days smoke free! You're killing this challenge, HR. I'm up to the beginning of day 4, but what a massive difference already having no cough in the morning!

    Hi HR,
    12 days smokefree your doing great.
    I hear what your saying about feeling fresher, at least we're no longer covered by that haze of cigarette smoke. So nice to feel fresh and enjoy the basic sense of smell. How bad is that, Smoking even deprived us from smelling nice and being able to smell.
    Anyway HR, Your doing really well, keep strong and good luck xx
