Day 2
« on: December 11, 2016, 09:31:19 pm »
Hi,

Having been back on the fags for about 6 months it's my third quit. Fingers crossed it's third time lucky!

Felt pretty dreadful today. I don't really feel like I need a cigarette as much as I did yesterday but feel like I've got a bad cold, very tired and dizzy. Worried I'm going to be a mess at work tomorrow but I really want a smoke free Christmas so I'm going to do this no matter how bad I feel.

Hope everyone is well, nick

Glad to have you back @Nick_82, and even more glad that you've reached that place of thinking, enough is enough, let's get this over and done with!  Yep, the dizziness is a pain but it's your body adjusting to all that lovely oxygen that can now travel around your blood stream now you're not chock full of carbon monoxide.  It will settle soon, just grit your teeth and hang tough.

Good luck and hope you do manage to have a smoke free Christmas.  You're the only one that can make that happen. I've got faith in you :)

Morning @Nick_82 and a Big Fat Welcome Back from me too.  :)

I've said this a million times before but having quit in early December myself I think it's a really good time of year to take the plunge. OK, it won't be the best Christmas ever probably, but (a) you won't half feel proud of yourself on Jan 1st when you tell yourself you quit last year (and that all the worst of it is behind you already) and (b) next Christmas you'll have a ball.  ;D

Hold on in there because you're doing great.  :hug: :hug: :hug:
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

A smoke free Christmas is the best present you can give to yourself and to others around you.  Hang on in there.  It can only get better. 
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.

Thanks everyone! Although everything is busy at this time of year like you skiddaw somehow it seems like a good time to try and do something positive. Also there seems to be less routine this time of year which I think is good for trying to quit somehow.

Hi Gerti1 - how is your quit going?  :D I hope well

Today has been ok, feel tired but also really happy I've not smoked for a few days. I'm also less useless than I was yesterday when I was so clumsy and dizzy. Christmas smoke free here I come!

Hiya Nick and a big pat on the back to you not only for choosing not to smoke but also as I think you are braver than me as I am using Patches and I think you are cold turkey??
My life for the past 2-3 weeks has been do-able and I can breathe so much better than before I quit. I have had days where I became a couch potato and days where I have made myself take long walks as I find it helps me sleep better. I have kept myself busier than usual and it does help. I am eating shed loads of imperial mints, have had mouth ulcers which I cleared using mouthwash twice a day. Today has been quite tough for me but I am so determined to go all the way this time I am using every trick in the book to combat the mind games. This is probably the single best thing anyone on this earth can do for themselves and the freedom that comes when we get to the otherside is awesome, I know as have been there once before. Keep it up Nick :)
I am going to do this
Quit 6th January 2018

You could get yourself an advent calendar to mark your smoke free days and eat the chocolate each day!
