    I am giving up smokeing for stoptober... I've not had a smoke since yesterday evening 10pm. I have myself an electronic cigarette which I dont see lasting very long.

    I started smoking while in a psych hospital for 3 months. What a stupid idea it was to start. I really hope it works for you, keep us informed. J

    Thanks TE, and arrowpenny.
    Its not gone off to a good start. made 24 hours without a smoke. but got really stressed and caved in and sent bf to buy some baccy. Currently awaiting delivery of a re-useable electronic cigarette, but really upset and stressed at the moment...
    Giving up... is not going so well...

    Off to a better start. not had a cigarette since thursday evening. Over 24 hours and still going strong. I may have the electronic cigarette, but I am not using it as much as I thought I would. I guess this nasty cold is adding some bonuses to the giving up aspect.

    I had one on Wednesday, and I had one yesterday.. Otherwise, cold turkey.
    Days two and three seem to be the most difficult for me.

    Day 2.
    Not had many cravings, not using my e-cigarette as much, only to ease the cravings when they do come. I haven't had one since thursday evening stil, feeling really proud of mysef.

    :hug: Cariad your doing really well :) you can stick throught it, each day is a win :)

    :hug: Jim good luck, and hopefully you can join us in 5 days. Always easier to kick a hbit with another person to look to for support through it :)
