Day 3
« on: March 02, 2017, 11:18:54 am »
Last time I managed 3 days without smoking was 2 years ago   :foundbeer: so hopefully being 72 hours, the Nicotine should have left my body.  Seems my body is letting me celebrate by giving me less intense cravings.  Which is great as I can focus a bit more on other things  008

This is your last time @mattick. You are on your journey of your final quit :D  First 3 days are the worst and as you said you are nicotine free. :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :ninja: :ninja:

Doing well, keep going and remember NOPE ;)

Right, for many people Day 3 is Hump Day. It's a hard day, feels like a hurdle, they get the hump, but if they get over that hump they get to Day 7 and that is a milestone. So I think a reward will be in order when you get to Day 7 and it's been a whole week. So what are you planning to do to mark that occasion that you are looking forward to?

Bad news, the pressure got to me  009 I did have a roll up today shamefully.  But I'm not going to wallow in self pity.  I went through a lot of suffering this week.  I learnt a lot so the experience won't be in vein.  I'm gonna start again, the nicotine levels are a lot lower.  So will give me a head start.  Thanks for the brilliant support, sorry to have let you down.

'Tis a lesson you should heed:
Try, try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try, try again.

Get up, dust yourself down and carry on, you can do this :)
I am free to smoke whenever I want to.
I am choosing not to smoke at the moment.
Because it stops me breathing.

You can indeed @mattick  :hug: :hug: :hug:

Just remember the most important mantra- NOPE (Not One Puff Ever) and the difficult times will pass (I promise). You're back in the saddle and you'll be that much stronger.  :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

Hey, you haven't let any of us down. Very few people quit forever on their first try. Like you say you got to try again until you succeed.

Never stop trying Matick as you learn so much from previous fails. I tried to quit so many times and each time I slipped up I felt quite disappointed in myself and felt I had no willpower ect... this was a load of codswallop and if you hang in there you really can beat this :)

Yep saw that - and like your signature - I've recently gotten into hiking and really want to do a lot more but smoking was holding me back - so one of the many reasons im here  ;D

It was one of my main reasons for quitting, @BondiGuy . I was beginning to struggle with hills and I couldn't bare the thought of not being able to climb mountains any more. It was a really good incentive. These days I don't only climb fells with ease, I even run half-marathons!  ;D

Congratulations on 3 whole days without the evil nicotine @BondiGuy (are you @KitKat long lost twin brother  ;) )

Those first 3 days are the worst and if you always remember NOPE (not one puff ever) then you will never have to go through them again as those 3 days will soon be 3 weeks, then 3 months, then before you know it smoking will be a distant memory and you will be a much healthier and richer person and those hikes you are starting to struggle with now will soon be like a walk in the park to you.
After far too many years I stubbed out my final cigarette on February 6 2011 at 10 pm and havent looked back since.
