Re: first week over

Congrats on getting through Hell Week if you've made it this far there's no stopping you now. I did it Cold Turkey so I don't know if the patch has anything to do with the insomnia. I had it also that first week. I guess I would suggets a wind down period before bed and when I really can't sleep I take a few tylenols they seem to help me.

Keep up the great work your off to a fabulous start it just gets better from this point on.

Re: first week over

hi ray...i agree with you about getting hardly any responses from this board. i posted almost the same thing as you did, several months ago, about no response. it is frustrating, that's for sure.
i have been an on again, off again smoker for about a yr now. i have been smoking for 42 yrs. about 2 pks a day the last 15 or so yrs. i do believe i'm ready to try another quit(can't tell you how many times over the yrs). longest i went was 4 mos.(twice) once cold turkey and the other with the patch. with some people, they can't wear the patch at bedtime, due to insomnia. do you wear one to bed?
i wish i could be a good influence on you, so we could help each other with this journey. first off, i need to quit again (i have commit losenges this time). it is hard for me also because i am physically disabled, so don't get out much, or any excersise at all(total boredom here!). also, hubby continues to smoke, so i need to get over the fact that there are cigs here i can get a hold of........best of luck, and hoping you get more support!

Re: first week over

Hi all i am in the same boat have been off cigs for one week and using patches, i feel i am doing really well but what i think of every time i get a craving is the amount of money i used to spend every month £140 and what i could buy with it instead, save it for a holiday or even just treat yourself or your family every so often i know it won't work for everyone but it's whats getting me through just now along with the patches. The only problem i have is when i wake during the night my back and ribs are so sore i feel like someone has beat me up while ive been sleeping anyway good luck and keep it up.

Re: first week over

Congratulations on one week little miss!!
Do you use the quit meter? It shows how much money you have saved from not smoking, how many cigs you have not smoked, etc. It is an inspiration for me.

Re: first week over

Re: first week over

I am not sure if we can post web sites here, but if you ****** quit meters for smoking cessation you should find some.
I gained a lot of weight while quitting also. I haven't weighed either, like you, afraid to. I am trying to get into a diet or healthy eating plan like I use to, but I find it hard right now for various reasons, but I will eventually. At least I'm not smoking.
Keep up the good work!
