1 Day

Sign in to follow this  


Well, it's getting close to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 25, 2019.  At 8:00 p.m., I will be 24 hours into my quit.  I have done the first 24 hours quite a few times and am feeling like quite the expert!  Typically I go out and buy myself a pack of cigarettes to reward myself for going a full day without smoking.  Um, isn't the point of quitting to not buy and smoke cigarettes?  Yeah, that's what I thought!


I went for a walk which did make this Day 1 a little different from all the others.  Didn't really notice any improvement in energy level or breathing but I don't really have trouble with either even when I am smoking.


Another thing that I'm doing different is allowing myself treats and snacks, whatever I want, for the first 3 days.  After that, I go back to healthy eating.  I don't want to replace one unhealthy practice with another that is just as bad if not worse.


Over all, today wasn't too bad.  I did think about smoking quite a bit but didn't have any overwhelming craves.  On to day 2!  And I do plan to have a consecutive day 2 this time!!!

One day at a time is how we do it! If you quit smoking for all of today then just pledge to do the same thing when you wake up tomorrow.

Have a good night :)

Congratulations on getting through day 1 Mona. One day at a time, that's all you have to focus on and the days will, slowly at first, add up. Here's to day 2 :)

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
