Congrats Tom!
I know how you're feeling. I'm on day 12 and it's friday and i'm dying for a drink and a cig. it's been on my mind for the past 3 hours and i just can't get it out of my head. i'm willing to go so far as to buy a pack, take one for myself and give the pack away. just to have ONE. but i got to tell you, days 4 to 11, i didn't want one. not at all. and i stopped cold too. without any help aids. but after the week i've had, i can't help it. i'm dieing for just ONE smoke. it'll pass though. i was a smoker for 15 years, so this is really hard for me. but if i can go through days 4 to 11 without one, so can you. day 3 is almost over for you, so you're doing great and it's all a smooth ride from here. eventually you're going to feel the way i do right now, but i promise you, it'll pass, just as it's passing for me right now. with any luck, i'll post again tomorrow to say i'm on day 13 of a smoke free future. :)

Vanita,
Welcome to the best support board on the internet!!! You're gonna love the people here.
So you're going cold turkey!! WOW! Congratulations to you. I'm impressed.

I have a suggestion for you. You are still new enough in your quit to do this. Write down how you felt that first week. The withdrawals, the emotions. Then when you get to thinking that you can take one puff of a cigarette, I want you to read over that list. Because I don't know anyone that wants to go through withdrawals again. That is what will happen if you smoke just one cigarette.

You say you are dying for a cig and a drink. Think about that statement.
Now aren't you glad to be smoke free!! And able to live a little longer than you would have as a smoker. Did you know that smoking kills 400,000 Americans each year? By quitting you have greatly reduced your chances of being one of the 400,000.

Day 12 is really, really good!!! It will get better the longer you're quit and the longer that nicotine and smoking is out of your body.

Good Luck to you!! And keep posting! Let us know how you're doing.

Memaw:)
