Hello first day stop smoking ..not cutting down made a decision to quit ,, tried back in 2006 for 10 months ,, negative thoughts already creeping in decided to check out quit line ,, been 13 hours without a ciggy,, evening time I guess relax time etc maybe change routine or replace that after dinner ciggy with something else little devil on my shoulder needs a flick,,, lol Wearing my patch and not a patch of ash for once .. using gum also trying to stay positive and remember why I decided .. shock therapy works for me lol nasty images of what could be.. 36 years smoking.... now watching my partner go out for a ciggy... TBH day one has gone quite well .. considering I would go into panic mode when I was near the end of my packet ..watching my partner go out for a ciggy .. don't be resentful me lol anyway thanks for listening . hope everyone's journey is going well ….
So proud of myself it's been nearly 2 weeks!! I'm still vaping and sucking on lozenges but I just think to myself it's far better than ciggs and I don't smell!! I've cut down on coffee, not tired at all and sleep better! It feels so nice to be in control.....I hope everyone else is having a good day....😁
Just finished last 30grm on Friday night, recieved my quit card thursday, have not had a chance to use card for patches, as yet.
Set a new quit date as of Friday, so now close to a day & a half not having a smoke.
Feel ok thus far, may just hold off on patches for the weekend & see how I go.
My hardest time seems to be first thing in the morning so I'm using my vape mainly for the hand action, so at this stage using my vape & lozenges. The last few days I've felt very tired but know I'll get over this. I'm very determined this time around, my mind is in a good place and feeling over-all pretty good. My next goal will be buying pods for my vape with 0 nicotine in them, I'm not feeling ready to buy them yet.
It's such a fantastic feeling not going to the shop all the time and not stinking of ciggs.
My routine is slowly changing and I'm trying to exercise more.
Have a beautiful day all you non-smokers.... 😁
Today I've made the decision to quit! I've ordered a 'stop smoking' book that has been recommended by many people who have successfully quit, and trying to order some NRT aids through this website (no luck though, thanks website errors?). I've had two today BUT I haven't brought any with me to work so hopefully day zero can be done, and then my first full day of no smoking tomorrow. I'm absolutely terrified, my willpower is literally 0...
Today has been a breeze, I can't believe it after yesterday's mood. I've been happy all day, only used vape a couple of times after work and only had a few lozenges at work.
I exercised in my lounge, trying to get abs and strength.😂🤣
I'm smelling more and more things, today I noticed my bathroom smells of smoke. (from a few cheeky smokes I've had in there with fan on). So there's another job for me later on to do, that will keep me busy lol.
I'm having very deep sleeps and not waking up or feeling as tired.
All in all a great day and feeling so positive.
Stay strong peeps ✌😁
Day 7 for me and it is crazy difficult. Today would be my usual break point, but I am determined to win this time around. Someone please tell me it's normal to be unbelievably tired and achy with almost no train of thought. And that it will pass. In the past my need to be constantly busy has had me pick up a cigarette again 😔 Holding on for dear life this time as I remember all the good reasons for this part of my quit journey.
Well my day started off ok with my usual shot of coffee and off I went to work. I was vaping in the car and sucked on lozenges throughout the day.
My mood has been very flat today and in my head felt like I could snap!! I've also felt like a zombie all day!(I deal with the public)
I blasted someone where I normally would be a bit more reasonable then I felt bad 🙄.
I'm in struggle town!!!!! Grrrrr
I think tomorrow I better stick on a patch.
I've got home and madly sucking on a vape.
I'm not going to lye on couch (I have early starts sometimes) like I usually do for my normal 1/2 hour nap.
Nope I'm going to put on my togs and go for a swim, hopefully it will shake off this terrible mood.
So far the biggest thing I've noticed is my sense of smell is returning and all my clothes even though washed seemed to all smell of smoke!! My handbag stinks of smoke!! You know what this means new wardrobe 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂(better pay off coffee table first lol)
I'm determined to fight these poisons they are not going to win!
I hope everyone else is having a better day than me.
Stay strong 😁
Last night was the first time for ages I had a really good deep sleep, anyone else find that happens??
It was very strange having my morning coffee without my usual ciggy but I felt such an achievement.
I've had the day off work today so this is when I usually smoke heaps so I've kept busy by walking, wasting time on tik tok 🤣🤣🤣 and shopping.
I've put a really cool coffee table on layby, it's a present to myself using money I would normally spend on cigs. I'll see it every single day and feel so proud of myself.
I've also brought myself a vision board which will help me with my journey.
Right time to exercise now as I'm determined not to put weight I've lost back on....lol.
Stay strong! 😁
How's everyone else going???
