Nervous about quitting, which I've set in two days.  I've quit many times before, but hope this time it's for real!  Going to try the patch, drink lots of water, start running, and making sure I eat regular meals (I tend to skip breakfast and lunch in favor of smokes instead).

    Welcome to the forum. You have a positive attitude, which will stand you in good stead. You got this! And I have found that this forum is really helpful in sticking to it, even just reading about other's challenges and successes helps keep me on track. It will help you too. Drinking water when you have a craving really does help so carry on forward!

    Hi Happy,
    Try not to be nervous, there's nothing to be nervous about.  It's a tough journey, but like everything else in life, it gets easier with time.  Go into it with a good mindset, make up your mind this is what you really want, and you'll find it's easier than what you thought it could be.  Remember the 5 D's, change up your routine and research the addiction.  Also use any tool available including this forum.  We're all here to help each other through this.  Good luck!

    Thanks and congrats to all of you who have commented and have quit.  I wasn't familiar with the 5 D's, but apparently they are...delay, distract, drink (water), deep breathing, discuss.
