Today is day 3 and I am starting to think about the money I am saving and developing healthy eating habits. Also meditation and exercise. I am taking our dog for a walk a couple of times a day. I will keep you updated on what I am doing to stay focused on my quitting smoking and thanks for your input into helping me through my quit.

Today is day 2 and I remind myself I am now a non smoker and went over my 10 reasons for quitting which I do a few times a day it actually helps me through some times when I get a craving. The cravings are not as bad as I thought they would be. I hope everyone has a good day and thanks again for your support.

 Never quit. If you stumble get back up. What happened yesterday no longer matters. Today's another day. So get back on track and move closer to your dreams and goals. You can do it. You are worth it. You can't  change the direction of the wind,  but you can adjust your sails to reach your destination and in so doing it is just a short distance to success. Happy quits everyone.

Well made it through 24 hours and actually had an appetite today had meals and snacks throughout the day. Found I could drink coffee without having a smoke in my hand. Went for a couple of walks today feeling good about quitting today. Looking forward to tomorrow.

I had three difficult cravings today; each one dealing with stressors to do with the kids.  The rest of the day seemed surprisingly easy.  I took time to relax, used Nicorette and deep breathing to get through the cravings.  I was excited & proud to get through day one!

I'm 18, and I smoked bong tobacco for ~3.5 years. A couple days ago, I gave my bong away and picked up a vape, with a couple different strength juices to taper down from. 
So far it's been a piece of cake, I don't know what I was so worried about before committing to it! Tobacco sucks.

I had my last smoke at 7 pm and put the patch on and went to bed at 11 pm and slept until 6 am. Have not had a smoke this morning and the cravings were not to bad. Put my lighter away and been eating fruit and vegetables as snack food. Went for a walk as well, listened to calming anxiety this morning as well. Feeling confident today and fairly relaxed.

its hard to believe i am at day 36.  Surprisingly cravings are few and far between...i have used the delay, distract, deep breaths,and lots of water..snacks, fruit, and orange juice have helped...walking..reading online on this site and that they keep up with where i am in my quit is supportive and motivating.  I have really appreciated the education, especially the interactive on the bodies that was most informative. I tried to drink coffee yesterday and even though i had trouble sleeping last night i had coffee again today...sheesh, i know i have to stop coffee to get a good nights sleep...seems so easy to go back to caffeine...i had quit for 7 days i think...I like to read where others are in the struggle to keep quit and hear their successes...it is a minute by minute process it seems at the beginning then gradually it's like their near non existent.  I like the feeling of being in control...over nicotine...and i know i can stop the coffee...maybe one day, i can enjoy that taste again.  That is the other thing...my TASTEBUDS ...totally loving the desire to eat has returned...i would put off food nearly all day until suppertime when i was smoking...now i have healthy snacks 2-3 times per day and enjoy a full dinner whereas before i could not stomach a full adult serving of a meal...my taste was very particular. I am also thankful that it has brought me to meditate and pray for self and others in the same struggles!  Peace and love people...stay in the Quit!

Well I made it three months! Still  having a few bad days, but not giving in. I would like to be busier, but my fractured  foot is taking forever to heal. Social situations  have not been an issue at all. I find I can be around smoking and it doesn't bother me. Having a beer doesn't make me want to have a cig so I think I can do this.
