Gonna quit for good this time!!!!

Hi All
 
I've tried several times to quit, twice this year already - first time lasting 3 months, 2nd time 3 days - I've smoked for 15 years and am 35 years old - totally hate smoking but really feel at a loose end if I'm not....however - I've set the date for tomorrow and going to try again to stop!  I need help - I know how tough it is as have tried to stop well over 10 times in my years of smoking - I obviously want to stop but come the weekend or an occasion my will goes and I have a puff........then that's it, I think to myself I've had a puff now might as well buy a ten deck and on it goes!  I will keep looking on here as feel the need for encouragement - I am completely up for it but seem to break after a while - maybe I'm sadistic and like the withdrawal period (yeah right) but I really want to do it this time.  Nice to meet you all and share in your experiences........

Hi All
 
Day 1 nearly over and hasn't been too bad.....had a few moments today but have dealt with it ok - it did help drinking 5 pints of water at work today to get my mind off it.....even though I had a few glasses of wine when I got it.....but hey ho - no smoking!!!  let's see what tomorrow brings - I'm on the wagon

Thanks for your messages.....
 
Must admit day 2 was ok but day 3 (today) has been hard............however still smokefree and keep coming on here to read other posts - need to remember why I've quit......and stay strong.....this is my problem tbh - give it a few days and I'm not so up for it (even though I totally am deep down) - so I'm kinda brainwashing myself and reminding myself the reasons why I've quit to keep focused!  I end up being slightly obssessive about the whole thing   but if that's what it takes then that's what I will do!  Hope you're all ok!  Any advice on day 3 will be greatly received  x

hey all, thanks so much for the support - I really appreciate it!!!!!!    It's what I need at the moment
Well it's day 4 today, work is not so stressful and I'm feeling much more positive about everything - there's nothing that I want more right now than to be a non smoker so I'm looking forward to it!!!!    Thanks again!!!

Guilty Pleasures Reward Day is here!!!

Rock - I soooooo loved your post - excellent idea, however I really don't know what I fancy - I'm on day 8 and the main indulgences for me in the last few days have been =  peanuts, cheese/crackers and pate, strawberry nesquik milkshake to name but a few

Not sure if I can have another guilty pleasure lol 
 
I'm also a bit like Leslie - the chocs and the salty savouries........
