Goodbye week 3, Hello week 4 !!!!
« on: June 21, 2016, 07:27:19 pm »
Had a tough night on Sunday,the worst I've felt since I quit. But I resisted going to the garage at 1.35am to get a smoke. Been keeping myself busy and my mind occupied,cutting the grass ,long walks to get a bit of weight off. Haven't touched any gum today or yesterday,so just a blip. :)
Has anyone else had mouth ulcers since they quit??
Smoked 20 a day for 20 plus years.
Quit on the 30/5/2016

Congratulations to you!!! 3 weeks is awesome  8)

In regards to your question. I did get a lot of ulcers in the early days when I quit, but it settled down. I wrote this awhile ago on the subject http://justquit.co.uk/index.php/topic,319.0.html not sure if you have read it. At least it explains why away.

Hang in there @clm73

Fab news @clm73 on your march into week 4 and your perseverence. Those firsts are always the worst - first day, week, month but actually it does get easier with each day. NOPE is a good thing to remember and Just keep going; just keep going.

Well done on getting to week four, sounds like you are nicely clocking up the days.  If you do struggle, do post.  We've all been where you are. 

I was fortunate enough not to get mouth ulcers, but it seems to be a common problem when you have first quit.

Hope week four is a good one.
Quit date - 1st October 2014, Quit method - lozenges

Well done indeed @clm73 !!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

The trick to this is to just keep on putting one foot in front of the other. Do that, and eventually you'll find yourself in what our @Max414 refers to as the 'sunlit uplands'  ;D

I promise that things will get easier. The bad days will become bad moments and then fleeting memories and all those wonderful positive benefits will grow and grow.  :)
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

Brilliant stuff.  Keep doing what you're doing and smoking will become a thing of the past.

Well done.
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Well done @clm73 you are doing amazing. Is Glastonbury actually getting some good weather for once? I went one year and the weather was truly awful but the music was good and we made the must of it ;)
