So today has been my first day as a non-smoker.  I seem to have done ok....in fact other than a crying tantrum with a hosepipe this afternoon, all seems to have been good.  :blink:

 

Nice to meet you all.

Hi Pumpkin! Welcome to the Quit Train. You'll be in good company here so come often and post about anything you like. We're here to help support you along the way. It may not be easy at times but it's the best thing you could possible do for yourself. Read as much about this addiction as you can. There's a wealth of videos available here as well that are also a great tool. Come pledge your N.O.P.E. (Not One Puff Ever) daily here. It will help to reinforce your commitment to not smoke.

Look forward to following your journey :)

My time in this world is limited but what I can do with that time is not.

This is my one & only quit attempt. If I relapse, I will die a smoker!

Welcome aboard Pumpkin and congratulations on beginning the process of setting yourself free.

 

Any emotional roller coaster type stuff experienced during these initial days is temporary and fleeting.  The pride and freedom that comes with quitting is permanent.

 

Buckle up, knuckle down, drive on.

Thank you so much for the welcomes and apologies for the late reply.  I am guessing most of you are the other side of the Atlantic to me.  

 

So I am just entering day two....I feel ok, but didn't sleep very well at all which I expected (I have done this before....and failed).  I know it improves so will just live with it.

 

Plan to keep myself busy today....its a lovely sunny day so good for cheering the mind!

 

Thanks again everyone.

 

:D

Hi Doreen.  I live in France, but am British.  Moved here 4.5 years ago.  I was actually a non-smoker when I moved here (had been for about 2.5 years) but things got extremely stressful and I started again.  This morning I found a cigarette in my car.....just sitting there looking at me.  I ripped it up and put it in the bin.   :P

I actually have stopped twice.  Once for about three years, the other about 2.5 years.  Always so angry with myself when I failed.

Bonjour Pumpkin!

You can't do anything about the past, but you are in complete control of looking forward to a smoke free future :) We know you can do it and we'll be here for support when you need it so, stay close to the quit train group and we'll get this done together :)

Every time you stopped you gave your body a break so don't dwell on it. Here you are again and ready to go. Better to keep at then give up. Here is to a new day
