Tomorrow will be day one my quit date any helpful feedback would be appreciated
Hey, Welcome back
Have you done any of the reading/education/planning/preparation suggested back in August? I hope so. It's really important to understand what is happening and to prepare for how you will respond. You wouldn't jump out of a plane without training, preparation, planning and education, would you? Beating an addiction takes some effort!
Glad to see you back!
Don't Talk Yourself into smoking.
Allow th time to unlearn it.
Be prepared for day two and three. They are often more problematic than day one. Have things to do to keep you busy. Take as deep a breath as you can and hold it when a craving hits. Let it out slowly. Repeat as necessary. Remember that the nuisance feelings are temporary. Remember that temporary is longer than 72 hours. You've smoked for how many years? Temporary is at least 130 days.
Stay close to this site. Read, ReAD, READ. There is a ton of great info. and inspiration here that you have not read yet. Dig for it. It's a good way to kill time and reinforce your quit at the same time.
Remember that I am a wimp ... and I am doing this. Don't be wimp whipped. You can do this!
How is day 1 going?
Be willing, commited, and please spend the time to educate yourself about this awful addiction! and come to this site daily! Welcome!
Do any of you live with a smoker and if so how did you resist the urge?

Helen, I am so happy to see you back! Maybe this will help
My Welcome To New Members (10 Years Of Watching) If you need anything just holler!
The best thing I know to say to you is to let the "stupid" thing go and know that it can happen to anyone! 95 days ago, I threw away 519 days on a very impulsive moment!!
Move into your new quit, This very supportive community will help you! We are here! Ready, set, go! You got this, Helen https://excommunity.becomeanex.org/people/diamond01/avatar/32.png?a=14467

Please note the date of this discussion: nikibug started the discussion1 year ago
It is my day 1 on May 14th and I am so nervous.
I am super nervous about quitting
What are you nervous about?
selena1717 We were all nervous about things that were unknown to us...how will I do... without smoking? The answers to all of your questions are on this site. Education about addiction, preparation for what you will do instead of smoking, coming here regularly and reading and listening to what people have to say will strengthen you and remember we ALL had to start at day one. Every day we added made us stronger and more aware of who we really are.
Reach out to people here, we all want you to be successful.
Welcome to EX.
