Day 6 free of cigarettes..already sick

Sorry to hear youre doing it hard. Im not sure how much longer to expect your withdrawals to last as lm only about to quit for the first time. But the patches should help. So strong of you to hang in there even with these heavy withdrwals. I hope you have time to lay down and take it easy when youre exhausted. Well done and thanks for inspiring me.

June quitter

I just saw this post and realised youre a recent quitter. Must be good to finally feel like a "non-smoker". I cant believe lve wasted 20+ years putting this junk in my body. I cant wait to feel myself healing and get rid of this negativity in my life. You must be feeling pretty fantastic....youve achieved what you thought was impossible. Way to go stellablue

Quitting tomorrow

Hi Stella. Im actually really missing cigs. Im thinking about smoking a lot which is a pain. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is soooo worth the effort. My cravings are mainly mental. I knew this would be the case for me. I wish l could press the fast forward button. Im so sick and tired of stressing about wanting/needing to quit that this just has to work! Its psychological warfare isnt it. I have to keep telling my brain its no big deal....just changing a habit. I can psyche myself positively. I cant wait to reach the other side.....freedom, freedom, freedom

Quitting tomorrow

Hi everyone, thanks so much for all your support. It is so appreciated and makes me even sadder to say that l failed yesterday. I dont know if lm ever going to get this right. I just kept thinking and thinking about smoking. My days felt so strange and had this real lonely feeling. No matter what l do to try and distract the thought of smoking is with me. Arrrrggghhh lm so frustrated with myself....and because l keep failing this is reinforcing in my mind that l cant do it. Each time l fail l feel weaker.
Ok well l start fresh tomorrow morning...better luck this time heres hoping.
I feel so bad to keep reporting failures because youve all been so supportive
My hats off to you all for doing this  
I think smoking is such a hard addiction to quit because you do it all day long so the mind has to fight cravings 24/7. 
Thanks again lovely people!!

Quitting tomorrow

Ohhhh Stella youve described me exactly...buying the small packs, going back and forth the tabacconist because "this is my last pack for sure", people making fun of my lame quitting attempts. Its an un-merry-go-round. Tell me something...what made the last time different for you? Was it easier or was your resolve stronger? What made it stick for you?
Thanks so much for your wisdom and support

Quitting tomorrow

Hi guys
Thanks for your posts. Timbo l hope youre right because this yo-yoing quitting attempts is taking its toll. The whole thing stresses me out that l end up smoking more because lm trying to quit....crazzzzy 
Stella thanks so much for sharing your experiences with me. Its helping me so much because l relate so well to all the quitting feelings and behaviors you experienced it makes me think l can get there too. Sometimes when l quit l feel so strong the early stages feel easy. But most times l quit l feel pretty weak and feeble about it so l give in pretty early telling myself lm not mentally strong enough. Stella you said that the quit that stuck for you started out as "more of a whimper than a bang". Im so glad you told me that because lm feeling pretty "whimpery" about quitting today but lve realised that it can still be done. Its about feeling all those negative feelings lm bound to feel and doing it anyway. I feel so blessed that lve never had any medical problems from smoking...lve put so much poison in my body. Really our bodies are so amazing with what they can tolerate and keep functioning healthily for us. My poor body deserves some respect. Im not giving up on giving up!!
Thanks again people for your support. I hope to come back with some good news very soon

Tired of Stumbling, Quitting in a Few Days

Hi QFG
Thanks for posting about your journey as lm also in early quitting phases and its great to see what others experiences are. Well actually lve been quitting for the last 2 weeks but lm still smoking...ironic huh? Its just that l cant seem to make it stick. For me it's mostly a feeling of depression thats making me give in. You said that you have beat addictions in the past. Dont forget to apply the same strategies to quitting smokes. Thats what l keep thinking about success lve had with other addictions in the past.
Way to go, keep up the good work!
