Hey! today is my 5th day smoke-free!

Reading what many of you have to say of the struggles and small triumphs has really helped me these last two days! Its been one hell of a week so far, and I'm worried about the weekend. So far chocolate has been getting me through, but I hope I get flowers instead this year. (maybe I'll be able to smell them now!) Anyway, I'm here in the same boat as many others and I look forward to sharing with all of you!

Hey! today is my 5th day smoke-free!

Thanks to everyone who replied  to my post! Your tips and encouragement mean so much to me! I shed a tear when I read gogy wog post with the flowers. Also, whomever said to try vitamin b complex -- good advice! I'm stoked about this forum and the army of support I have at my side. Thanks for all your replies!!!!  P.S. it was tough when my parents just returned from Mexico with a carton of Marlboro Lights for me three days ago. Really tough!  I was two days into my quit so took the Jose Cuevo Tequila instead. I'm so happy I did.

Hey! today is my 5th day smoke-free!

Thanks again for the encouragement! And yes, my first big test I passed! My parents are both former smokers and they understood and were happy for me. I'm not sure who they are giving the smokes to, but who cares? Not in my lungs!

Quitters can be losers too.

okok I have to post! I knew during this process of quitting I was prepared to gain some weight, so I went to the Salvation Army (second hand store) and bought a pair of "Seven" jeans two sizes too big in mint condition for only $4 dollars. These jeans usually cost around $200 here in canada. I'm not going to feel bad if I fill them in!

I have no money

Here in Canada our smokes are $12.75-$13.50.  Similar to Australia I suppose. I'm not going to miss scrounging up change to pay for a filthy habit that costs $200-plus dollars a month. Thats a car payment!

What saved your quit?

Its nice to know that someone else is quitting too, and enduring the same discomforts as me. Most of my smoker friends don't understand. They offer me cigs and cigars dispite telling them I quit. My sister has been the worst one! They think I just stopped buying smokes and want handouts. I've learned from all you here on SSC we agree that one puff can destroy our hard work and set us back in every way. If the time comes that I relapse, I'm not giving up. Thank you all for the support and I hope I can assist others. Essentially, everyday your help here is keeping me from sinking, and I'm trusting you all with my feelings and need your help.

Hi! I'm new here too.

welcome boosky and kookla! I'm a fresh quitter too! Stay close to your allies! SSC has helped me out big time! Someone is usually around to offer words of wisdom, as well as there are great posts to help you stay motivated like the "New quitters! Read this, tips" by Cold Turkey. All the best, you can do this!

Quit Date is Feb 26th.... May need some help

WELCOME! We are happy you are ready to really go for it! Slowly readying yourself for the quit is a great idea! Cutting back has started preparing you to skip many of those smokes you miss throughout your daily routine. Know that you aren't alone, and many of us are fresh quitters than are going through the same discomforts. As well, the support and wisdom of seasoned quitters is gonna come in handy!

Welcome! I'm new here and pumped about quitting! You can do this! I've never been on the patch but a friend that is recommends sugar free suckers. It satisfies the hand to mouth motion you might miss! I'm doing the gum thing, and its working. Its not you that you hate, its the cigs. F*CK em!
