Lately I haven’t enjoyed smoking cigs and I’m heading to the beach tonight. So, tomorrow I’m going to just go cold turkey.
Wishing you all the best in your quiting smoking journey
The urge to smoke will pass, you got to be patience. No-one force you to smoke, don’t feel compelled.
I tend to smoke out of boredom
You can be bored without smoking. Nothing changes in your life by quitting smoking. You can still feel the same emotions as with a cigarette. The difference are just healthbenefits. I am hoping for my miracle to quit.
I’ll let you know if I make it. Then maybe it can motivate you to quit
Stock up on anything you like to do. Have it all in sight. Like snacks, magazines, books, music, people, a list of people to phone and chat with, and any hobbies you already have.
@chordy good idea!
Good luck!! I wish I was able to stop cold turkey.
Make sure any reminders of smoking are out of sight. - cigarettes, ash trays, wrappers, lighters.
Don’t think pink elephants (cigarettes).
Good for you and good luck. It’s a hard thing to do but wish you the best with it.
I stopped smoking on July 3, 2014. It is better!
Wishing you success and sending some (((hugs))) to help with the cravings.
@Alice, Tell us how your day went.
You can talk to people on here, if you want to. I don’t smoke, but I’m sure a lot of them have been where you are.
I quit many times and it finally stuck a out 5 or 6 years ago. You’ll feel great once you get the nicotine out of your system. Be ready for the first bit being rough and coughing up a lot of phlegm. But once it is gone you will notice you breathe a lot easier.
A couple to three months later, food will taste so much better. That alone was worth it.
excellent! always be mindful (present) in cravings. Good luck!
That’s right, Gene. The cravings will pass whether you use or not.
