5 Days In


Hey Marblina,

First off, congrats on being five days in. From what you are saying it sounds like your are well on your way to making this your last quit. It's important to remember that quitting is a process and you learn from past mistakes.

You sound very well prepared (but are most likely going through the toughest part right now). Staying away from the cabin and other smokers is key, and also avoiding drinking for as long as you can, is really smart.

When I quit (it also took me a few tries) I had to isolate myself from all of my friends and family members who smoked, and I was miserable to around, I stopped drinking for a bit, as that was a big trigger for me.

For me the quit meter was really important. Seeing my stats increase was key. When things got tough I logged in to watch that meter roll and I convinced myself to go one more hour, then I'd go to bed and wake us and see the progress I made over night.

As time moved forward it got progressively better and the cravings were less intense. It's been a long time since I stopped using tobacco, and I can't even imagine taking it up again.

You can do it - thanks for sharing and please keep us posted!

Quitting smoking again for the third time, this is my first time using a Smoking Cessation Program.

I feel like I can beat this but would love some words of support. The most difficult time is at the cabin as family members smoke. I am avoiding going there this weekend but will be there next.

I have been avoiding drinking as well and seeing anyone who I would normally smoke with but eventually that will come up. Any words of wisdom to work through that?

Thanks!!
