Thanks for your encouragement. I will need it throughout the day and night. I have read through the workbook, so I am prepared. I little nervous about driving to work, but I have my straws ready to be chewed.

1st Day, Having Trouble

Today is my quit date. So, far I haven't had one. Feeling very spacey though. Chewing on sunflower seeds and straws. Just need some boost from you all.

1st Day, Having Trouble

I guess I am doing ok. I need to keep busy. Maybe I should I bought nicorette gum. Maybe would have been easier. But I need to do this without the nicotine, so no gum. The hard part is commuting to work. I was like a hound dog this morning. I was picking out every car that had a smoker in it. Going to be tough and long, but know I can do this.

Emotional Rollercoaster!!!!

Good Luck!! I'm in my first day of quitting. A few withdrawal symptoms like spacey feeling, but I am doing ok so far. Keep with it.

Should I try the gum, Jim? Does it help. I'm not worried to much about withdrawal symptoms, its the cravings I worry about it.

1st Day, Having Trouble

Red twizzlers, I don't like liquorice. Great Idea thanks so much. Will pick them up after work. I can do this. I keep on telling myself that. Only problem is I will have to stay away from friends for a while. They do smoke, but I have to quit drinking to do this too. If I had a beer or a nice rum and coke with dinner it would be over. I am excited though. I will be on here alot.

1st Day, Having Trouble

It's 8pm and i really am doing fine. The toughest part is the commute to work and back. A little spaciness, but otherwise I am pretty ok. Of course, I've thought about the evil stick, but am doing ok. I am sure it has to get harder for me. So, far so good.
