2 days quit

i am just letting you all know that i am at the beginning of another quit. i am using commit losenges, only about 6 a day i've needed so far.i have no energy level at all, and fall aseep early at nite. maybe from boredom, i don't know? i am also physically disabled which does'nt help the boredom.
i've had copd for 13 yrs., i am also a diabetic...those alone are 2 good reasons to quit! well, i am 58 yrs old and have smoked for 43 yrs....i know i've been pushing my luck that nothing else has happened to me medically.
here's to all of us that are definitely never going to p/up a butt again!!
any helpful tips at this stage of my quit would be more than welcoming!

Re: 2 days quit

confession.....it was a bad pain day(i know, no excuses), anyway i had 2 of hubby's cigs. will try harder today! keep going sharon, i know we can do this but it is such a struggle. i wish i had never started smoking, but all my friends smoked in the 60's and i had to, of course, join them! also back then, i don't remember any warnings about smoking, i never thought of what the future would bring....so here i am trying to quit at 58, after smoking for 43 yrs.!
i really don't want to smoke, i need to be stronger today..best of luck to everyone!......bevann

Re: 2 days quit

sharon...i can't even remember how many times i failed over the yr. just since june, when i tried the chantix, i have probably quit and started again at least 10 times. i think the main thing is that we do keep trying, because we really do want to quit, that'sthe good thing here.
i had a terrible crave yesterday! my hubby's sis is down visiting from ga, so we're sitting outside and he just kept putting his cig in the ash tray instead of holding it......the smoke was coming right at me. his sis saw what was happening and spoke up to him about it. this crave was the longest at about 15 min! i tried all i had heard about deep breaths etc. but nothing helped it. thank god it finally went away, so i got thru it....i think if his sis was'nt here, she is an RN and hubby is a resp. therapist, she absolutely hates smoking, that i would have caved in.
well it will be a wk tomorrow(except for the 2 i had on weds) i'm not counting those!
i hope you are ready to quit again today, and i know how hard it is! good luck, and keep on trying, you can and will succeed!....bevann

Re: 2 days quit

If your hubby smokes outside, stay away from him while smoking. That is the WORST thing you can do when trying to quit. You are torturing yourself. Just take a deep breath and find something else to do. After using Commit for 4 days, I stopped those too. I smoked for 27 years. Tried to quit over 10 times in the last year. Until you are mentally ready to quit, it is the hardest thing to do. You have to want it. I am 24 days quit today. I still get an urge sometimes, but, it is very easy now to just turn to something else. You can both do this. ******** that counter and think of 1 week from now. Then, think of another week. That's what I did. Just take it slow, stop thinking about, omg, I haven't had a drag today, what am I going to do. Instead think, omg, I haven't smoked, what can I do now that I couldn't do before because I smoked.
I breath better, I can smell things stronger, food is getting richer in flavor and I'm not so tired all the time.

I used Commit lozenges for 4 days, about 10 lozenges total, and then put those down too. I realized that I was substituting one nicotine for another.
I was only using those when I got to the the point of a nervous breakdown
It can be done, you just have to want to. Believe me, the stress of personal life right now did not help, but, I got through it.

Re: 2 days quit

I think so, 27 years, which is more than half of my life.
how long have you smoked? Are you using NRT?
You can do it, anyone can, as long as there is a true determination to do it.
