Been 12 hours

so far so good! Not having any real tough cravings, but cigs are on my mind like never before! Just trying to stay busy and not hit the giant cookie my son brought home last night!!!! Will probably be back and forth on here all day -

12 hours IS an accomplishemt...the 1st 24-48 are always the hardest!! So look at it this way - you are either 1/2 or 1/4 of the way past the critical point. Come on back anytime, this board is a Godsend!!

Re: Been 12 hours

Mom, come back as often as you need to.... whenever you get a craving, get online insead!! We all understand! And so what if you eat part of that cookie, it's better than lighting up. Good luck. Hope to see you here. Kick that Nicodemon in the butt!!!

Re: Been 12 hours

SUPER!!!:

Just take it one minute at a time, don't think about an entire day. Stay busy, eat fruit, drink LOTS of water and remember with each passing minute the nicotine and other chemicals are leaving your body.

YOU CAN DO IT - LOTS OF DEEP BREATHS

Re: Been 12 hours

Mom that is fantastic!!


I know i counted down each hour that first day and was proud of each hour that passed.

Just think~ pretty soon you'll have the first non-smoking day under your belt and you'll never have to repeat day number one again!!!!!!

Re: Been 12 hours

If it gets really hard tonight - take a long, hot bath and go to bed. Can't smoke if you're sleeping

Keep up the GREAT work

Mom you're doing great - keep up the good work - don't you feel so proud of yourself? You need to give yourself a great big hug for doing such a good job.
