1st Day Quitting

Posted in Quit experiences 10 Jul 2013

So... its been 13.5hours since my last smoke.

Feeling really positive about this attempt. i have to admit i usually do start off good, but this time i will keep up the momentum. Im 100% completely over:

- Smelling of smokes- Not having a bright white smile, like i use to- Being unfit and short of breath - Broke, for feeding my addiction- Lazy and un-energetic- The taste of smokes- Coughing

Im committed, dedicated and so keen to stay smoke-free, its not funny anymore. Enough is enough.

Goodluck to all who are in the same boat.

    Well done for giving it a go!
    Only at Day 4 myself!
    You have plenty of reasons to give up - remind yourself of those every time you feel like a smoke.
    I find distraction and avoiding smoking situations are working for me in terms of habit breaking and the patches are helping with the craving...

    Hi Titan, it's all positive when you give up. More money,you smell better, you feel better and soon you will look better. God luck
