1st day of not smoking

avatar-icon

So at midnight I had my last cigarette and within 15minutes of having that last smoke I automatically wanted another one ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ it's been 40 minutes and that urge to go have one more is starting to not be as bad but my mind is like naaahh just one more no one will know ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ first time going cold Turkey! The other time I quit I started vaping so its going to be an interesting few days! Let's see how this goes without any of the patches etc. Ohhh maaann what have I just gotten myself into lol.. started smoking at 15 & I'm nearly 30.. this is my last bad habit to conquer! I no longer drink , I dont consume any drugs what so ever and I'm a mother of 3 so there is deffs gonna be some stressful times lol.. I think the hardest time of the day will most probably be the morning and after every meal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ come along and follow my journey cause I'm deffs gonna need some help lol! Let's dooo this.

Lockdown

avatar-icon

Iโ€™ve finally decided this is enough! Iโ€™m unsure of my timing though as out of all the time I had to do this.... Iโ€™ve chosen now while my partner is in the middle of a lockdown with me!!!!!! I fear for him.... will he survive the angry tantrums I may have? Will I have angry tantrums? I donโ€™t know what to expect & wether I will be able to control my moods or not.... BUT it is NEVER the right time... I could make a different excuse 365 times that itโ€™s not the right time. And my partner REALLY wants me to quit so he is 100% supportive. I hope he survives this with me ๐Ÿ˜ฌ maybe I will be just fine and dandy & think F**K why didnโ€™t I do this years ago! Itโ€™s easy! ๐Ÿ˜’ I doubt it ๐Ÿ˜” please wish him luck....

Mentally preparing

avatar-icon

I realize how long I have been lying to myself, telling myself that this habit is not affecting my health. I am 50 and feeling unhealthy, unfit, sounding like a chesty smoker. I am desperate to be free

You have to start somewhere this is my Day 14, with the help of quitline๐Ÿ˜Š and patches ๐Ÿ˜Š I know that this is a battle but I am determined to succeed after a pack a day for maybe 45 years!
I have been reading the blog for the past few hours and see what a fantastic community lives here.

More from me soon, just wanted to get my first post off.

29 Days

avatar-icon

One month! My mind is focused there's no going back.
I'm feeling really good and not tired every day like before.
I am still vaping and sucking on lozenges. I've tried 0% vape but it maybe a bit soon. I'm a bit concerned I maybe vaping too much and I must have it everywhere with me like ciggs. I guess my next step is to slow right down on vaping. I've been concerned I'll lose it as I deal with the public. Over all though very proud of myself and have all this extra cash which I'm spending on treats like new clothes.
I'm feeling very positive and a lot happier about myself.
Be strong peeps it a mental game, retrain the brain....Have an awesome day โคโœŒ

Day 2

avatar-icon

Hi all! Iโ€™ve finally decided (and actively trying) to quit smoking. Im wearing patches which are really helping!

I must say that im finding today ultra hard! I dont feel like socialising or being around people (avoiding triggers) and my mood is so foul. I still dont want a cigarette though because i cant let 2 days go to waste!

Im avoiding a family gathering tonight because im serious about quitting and avoiding temptation.

Please tell me it gets easier! Please tell me its worth it!
