Do as much physically demanding activity as your can.  It will remind you why you're doing this in the first place when you're short of breath.  Each day you will be able to do a little more.

Great post !!!!

Good to get your lungs working and taking in good deep breaths ....

This is a bump to include a link, an adage and a little film

 

Here is Joel Spitzer's  Daily Quitting Lesson Guide

 

 

Remember what our friend, Sirius, says,

"The next time a craving plunks down on your face ask yourself, "What price you are willing to pay to own yourself?"

re:  first days nicotine Free

 

In your First Few Days

while the Nicotine left your body,

 what helped you ?

 

For me,  it was 

Sleep  (assisted with over the counter sleep medication or whisky).

Ice Water.

Satsumas, Citrus.

Deep, deep breaths.

Long 'singing' showers.

 

(If I had known about y'all,  I guarantee I would have been here)

 

 

Edited to avoid controversy as to method of quitting smoking.

I just want to know what helped you while nicotine left your body.

For me it was water and long walk

George,

This is a thread about your first days Nicotine FREE.

You are still using Nicotine and keeping yourself addicted. 

 

The point here is ridding yourself of nicotine completely so you can be Free,

Of getting through craves WITHOUT any nicotine at all.

 

This is perfectly do-able and something you will need to face at some point.

 

I encourage you to read and watch and listen to these links below

so you can better understand what you may be experiencing.

I figured I'd add what's worked for me so far,  on day 5 nicotine free.  I repeatedly tell myself I'm a non smoker,  over and over throughout the day,  remind myself how each inhale of smoke really feels because it is not pleasant.  Lots of water and diet root beer (before today was diet Pepsi,  trying to reduce caffeine). String cheese!!! Coloring pages, adult level,  to keep my hands busy. Cinnamon toothpicks!! They are my favorite in the car,  roll down the windows and chew.  

 

Daily commitment to NOPE.

 

The people on this train are amazing!! Thank you all!!

Do you have view signatures enabled? If not then you'll need to enable that. It's in your account settings, click on signature and you'll see it towards the top of the window that opens :)

I can see your ticker on my computer.  "15 days, 32 minutes since last smoke...$120.18 saved and 300 cigarettes avoided."

 

Good job Judi.

Well, as long as you guys can see it, I guess that’s all that matters.  Believe me, I know how long it’s been, so I don’t need to see it.    LOL

Hey @Annien, your quit starts the minute you put out your last cigarette. Mine's 10:15 pm. We have tickers here that will keep track of all the time, cigarettes NOT smoked and money saved since you quit. Its great inspiration and also shows what you're giving up should you relapse.

Here's a how to if you want one 😊

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.
