I forgot about this app. Dont know if the link will show up but you put the date and time you quit and other info. Then it keeps track of your time down to the second money saved health benefits life time saved etc. Its pretty great. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.despdev.quitsmoking
Good morning everyone happy smoke free saturday. Its quite in here. Did our forum get moved when Feb. Started?
I think we’re still here. Good day Glammy!
I hope all is going well with you and that you are still quit! You should have a week now and that's Great. I know how hard you have been working to get to this point. Hang in there and make it count!
Morning all 1 month and 5 days smoke free no slips. I have noticed that it has been really really quiet on here. This morning I had a really strong urge but not giving in. I’m glad to know you guys are still staying quit. More than anything I know I don’t want to start this journey all over again. And I know that there is nothing a cigg will give me but it will take everything away. Hanging in there. Would love to hear how everyone else is hanging in there
Hello Ab! Yes sometimes it’s quieter than other times, who knows why. Maybe they all went to a beautiful place and didn’t invite us lol. Maybe Sunday’s a slow day.
I had a strong urge myself today but luckily it passes. I just don’t give it the attention it wants. I ate some blueberries instead. I’m not crazy about blueberries - something about the texture and just not sweet enough - but it’s supposed to be so good for you. Why not!
you are doing great!
Yes, day 8 and the ship is steady! Gum does wonders for my cravings as in, I hardly have them any more or rather than the intense physical cravings they are more the 'time for a smoke' thoughts that automatically pop into my head at certain times. The whole psychology of it is really interesting. As well as the cravings decreasing, so is a bit of the honeymoon phase of quitting. The first few days there was a real sense of pride and accomplishment that I was winning the battle. That sense is still there, but being smoke-free is normalising now and there is a slight diminishment in the sense of achievement. I'm wary of this as I've been here before. It's the letting down of the guard that leads to being at a party and "just having one". Constant vigilance must prevail!
3 days 19 hrs and 23 minutes that according to my quit tracker is the time that has been added to my lifespan from being quit 3 weeks tomorrow
Im glad to see everyone here getting better everyday. We got this ?
Eight Days is Great! I'm very happy for you!
I understand what you are say about your quit normalizing and the Honeymoon part of your quit being over. I have lost many a quit during that period of the process.
Guard your quit! It is precious to you. Make sure that you don't keep any smoking or vaping items anywhere around you. If you don't have it, you will have to go some where and buy it. The time it takes to do that, may give you the time you need to reconsider what your doing. Another thing that might help you is to make a promise to yourself that goes something like this " If I decide that I am going to give up my quit, I must wait one day (24 hrs.) after that decision before I actually give my quit up."
The key here, is creating a time period that hopefully lets you renew your commitment! Throw Up Some Roadblocks! That nicotine monster can be real convincing at times!
