Hi Debbie, I remember chatting with you when I was on here before, I think we played some word games together lol

It is most definitely a case of getting yourself in the right mindset to quit and stay quit. I think a huge part for me is not using the willpower method as it would make you feel as thought you were missing out on something very precious  

Today is day 3 and I’m feeling okay, I’ve been out in the woods taking my dog out for a walk, breathing in lots of lovely fresh air. I’m going to the hairdressers this afternoon.

Thank you Debbie for your advice and support

I agree Lind, I think you have to get past the old thinking of giving up smokes, woe is me, and instead say, " Great, I am getting rid of those terrible, sickening and dreadful sticks of death.  Aren't I lucky ?"  Going to try hard to keep a positive attitude.relaxed

Yes that’s what we need to do :-). I do find that once I’ve finished a job, be it shopping or tidying up, or whatever I would always “reward” myself with a cancerstick treat!! Where as today I have been shopping and bought healthy food and fruit to snack on. I’m back at work on Monday after having 6 weeks summer holidays off, there are no let 2 smokers at work, but I wanted to make sure I had a good few days between me stopping and going g back to work,  as I know one of my smoking friends would try and talk me into coming outside to smoke with them. I feel so much more positive and confident in myself and know that I’m happy to say no thanks I’ve stopped smoking.

I may be the only one who is not from America, UK or Australia. I am from Romania and I must say I love this forum. I feel calm here because no one judge me.

I'm from Toronto Ontario Canada. Coming up to my 6th year smoke free and kicking my own butt at the gym now.

Wow that's so cheap. California is at $9.75-$10.35 for name brand and maybe you can find some off brands for like $8.00. That's exactly part of the reason why I quit and it will only get higher from here. That's why I remind myself the next cigarette I smoke is worth $10,000, because that's how much I would end up spending if I fail now! Might help someone to see it that way!
