Oooh I do like the smell of coconuts. Have you tried the Philip Kingsley Coconut Breeze elasticiser? I do like that and it makes my hair so so soft.

That time might be different for everyone. I was really poorly in my first week or so with terrible tonsillitis.....but then after a couple of weeks I had had a day where I came to a point where I hadn't thought about it for hours, which quite tickled me and I was proud. What I did genuinely find interesting after a couple of weeks was going out for the day with a smoking friend and watching her anxiety and desperation and it really cemented it for me that I did not want that to be me.

Hi @Sashie and well done for getting through another tough day. There will be more to come and you will go on the biggest roller coaster ride of your life if you’re anything like me.  In the beginning I too wanted to know when I would stop thinking about fags.  I would have constant “brain battles” (craves) most of the day about whether or not to smoke.  It was tough.  But I hung in there and just did it one minute, one hour and one day at a time.  Then one day it all changed for me and I realised I’d gone a couple of hours without thinking about smoking. The process is gradual but I would say that the shift for me started around the 30 day mark and then by about 50 days I was in a place where I could feel that I was returning to a normal function zone! Hope that helps and gives you a target to work towards.  Targets are great because they let your brain quickly dismiss craves as your brain won’t even entertain the thought of them until you’ve reached your target day......and of course by then you want to just keep going forward. Keep going coconut!

hello @Sashie , welcome.   smell of cocunut shampoo sounds delightful.  Think I must have permanently destroyed my sense of smell, even after a month it hasn't come back.  Out shoppng yesterday , I realised that in a whole day, I only saw one smoker and one vaper.  The poor smoker looked really shifty. So good to be free from the slavery.

Well done @Sashie those first few days are very difficult but you CAN do it, you will soon be calm and chilled like your friends.  As Tea said it is a lovely surprise when you realise you haven't thought about smoking in a while and it doesn't take very long before that happens. Keep thinking NOPE and try keeping as busy as possible.  007
Smoked for most of my adult life (and a fair bit of my childhood!).  Managed a two year quit 2014-2016 but started again!  Quit again on 6th January 2018 and lasted 7 months!  Back on the wagon again now...........

 :hug: :hug: :hug: @Sashie, I remember wishing I could hibernate like a bear and not wake up until I'd reached that stage. It's horrid isn't it? BUT the day will come, I promise. You'll find that the 'not thinking' periods grow from minutes to hours to days to weeks and it really won't be long until that process starts.

In the meantime, just hold on in there and carry on doing what you're doing. You're a total star.  :)
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

So many mountains, so little time...

Well done @Sashie you really have done the hardest part in my opinion and it's great to start smelling nice things again. Remember to treat yourself for all your hard work :)
I am going to do this
