I want a quit buddy as dertermined as I am.

Yes lm with you. Great to hear yoire doing so well in your first few days. Dont worry about those butts...thats usually the case...scrounging around for the leftover butts at the start of a quit. I actually blew my quit so lm going to wait until the weekends over...its easier for me to start on a monday. This monday is my quit date. Hang in there...get over the hill of the first few days and past those withdrawals...youre doing wonderfully. I understand the feeling of missing the ritual. I always feel like lm missing something very vital to my day when l quit...it makes me super depressed....thats why l keep failing but l feel like one of these days my quit will stick. I can only hope. Keep me posted.

Quitting tomorrow

Im back to tackle this again. I was hesitant to post so soon but l want to journal my quit here...and l have a feeling this one can stick. Im only on day 2 but lm going well. It has surprised me how well and lm waiting for it to crash. I know its going to inevitably get tough. Im using the mind over matter method and telling myself that its not that hard. Im just not doing something that l used to do. Its not the end of the world.  Im getting cravings throughout the day then distracting myself and they pass. Im using the quick mist spray when l crave and its helping me greatly. Im also eating alot and while thats not ideal ld rather eat too much than smoke. Im armed with lollies and determination. I figure time is going to pass whether l smoke or not. I can either waste more years trying to stop and failing or l can tough it out for a while and let the time pass by thats needed for me to solidify a quit. Fingers, toes everything crossed. Oh lm also spending time reading the bible so my mind is immersed in positivity and prayer and its working for my mind and spirit that is usually so weak at giving up. I feel l have more strength this time thats coming from prayer and bible time.
Good luck to all quitters

Second Day Difficulties...

Hi Eliza
Im also on day 3. Maybe we can kick this together...wouldnt that be awesome!
I was worried about the exact same thing so l asked my doctor for a chest xray. It came up completely normal and lve been smoking for 26yrs so l was very relieved and glad l did the xray.
Get it done for your piece of mind.
Keep in mind its surprising what our bodies can take....the punishment we give them. The human body is womderful at regenerating and like Tim said oir bodies are already starting to heal so thats a comforting thought.
Good luck!

Quitting tomorrow

Thanks so much Stella. Support is everything . I know its such early days (day 3) but l have a better feeling about this one and this is the longest l havent smoked in many many yrs. Actually l did something l shouldnt have . I saw someone smoking at the shops and asked them for a cigarette. I brought it home, made a cuppa and went outside for the ritual. I was expecting to love it but it turned out to be a real anti-climax. Im not disappointed l did it because it showed me that l dont actually enjoy smoking as much as l thought l did. I realised for me its the habit l enjoy and the answer to stress, boredom, celebration. I punctuate all my activities with smoking and thats what lm missing...the ritual. Im so glad l didnt love it that much. Armed with this info makes it easier for me. 
Stella so happy for you on 8 months....so awesome! Your quit length makes me realise how much time lve wasted as l came to this forum at your 1 month mark and because l didnt change my quit date my quit meter showed thousands of cigarettes that l had smoked (rather then hadnt). Yuk! Im so disgusted with this habit. Seeing some light in the tunnel

Constipated after quitting

Mint helps with stomach upsets. You cld try fresh mint or for more concentrated you can get over the counter mint capsules.

Quitting tomorrow

Thanks Tim...you and Stella are both an inspiration and its kind of you to reply to all the newcomers here because you need support in the beginning and it can be a bit quiet around here (apart from the newbies most of whom disappear)

Quitting tomorrow

Day 5
I didnt even think ld make it this far. Im so grateful l have. The days are dragging a bit and l keep thinking "Its time for a cigarette" then l remember l dont have them anymore and its a bit of a sinking feeling. Id love to puff on one right now, l think it would be so enjoyable but l have to try not to indulge in thoughts like that. Im using my nicotine spray a fair bit (as often as l woukd smoke) and it helps with the cravings but lm dependant on it now. Its not ideal. I wish l could cold turkey it but l need a crutch right now. Overall this quit is not as hard as theyve been in the past but lm definitely not counting chickens because it cld get harder any day.  Im avoiding going out because it feels more difficult when l do and lm trying to avoid stress. Im worried that when l get hit with something stressful l will bust. So far so good but lm just nervous that this is too good to be true.
