The big day 3 has begun!!
« on: April 14, 2016, 03:59:08 pm »
Well here we are into day 3...mood seems good,not biting heads off or flying off the handle,but then again I'm a fairly laid back guy anyway,so it would be completely outta character..been to the MACH exhibition at the nec today so that's kept my mind occupied,so that was good...just gotta keep going now :D

WOW did you think this would happen so soon :D :D :D :foundbeer:  You mention biting heads off, I just want you to be aware that you might, only might get very angry in the next few days.  I couldn't believe how angry I got :(  If this happens come on here and just moan, we're good listeners.  Also try and talk to any family members and let them know what you are going through and how you feel.

Get yourself a good game on your phone - it worked for me whenever I got angry or had a crave  :)

You can bite as many heads off as you like so long as you dont smoke.

Well done you.  How about making a pledge to not smoke for the rest of today
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Day 3!!! You are doing so well mate, after today, all nicotine will be gone from your system. Which has got to be something to celebrate  8)

So I reckon the deal is you can bite off heads you can fly off handles and you can even poke your finger in your eye but you cant smoke.  Sounds like a good plan to me.  :)

@Bikerboy46 , poking your finger in someone else's eye is heaps more fun than poking it in your own.  ;)

Seriously, well done- getting the first three days under your belt is a bit of a milestone. Just keep building on what you've achieved so far and before you know it you'll be counting in weeks and then months.  :hug: :hug:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

@Bikerboy46  most impressive, first few days are so hard, it's a massive habit to change, day 13 for me & each day I dare myself not to smoke. It's working so far & I'm finding that now I can go for a few hours without even thinking about, when normally I'd have smoked at least 4 in those few hours.

Keep going, your catching me up ;)

@Bikerboy46  well done for hanging in there. NOPE is a mantra you may be saying quite regularly over the next couple of months but you can do it. 

Make a list of rewards you might like to spend the now available cash. 

In my first week, I had mega fidgets and couldn't sit still. Just as well I ended up at a week end festival so I could expend energy and be loopy without succumbing.
