Welcome to QSMB and congratulations on your quit.
Quitting may not be as easy as we wish it to be but it's not impossible.You can do it if you own your quit, educate yourself on the ways to deal with the tricks your addicted brain will play and seek for support whenever you need it. You came to the right place for the latter two and owning your quit is up to you which probably starts with not "trying"

Welcome to QSMB and congratulations on quitting,
Try and read through the newbie sections on the main board so you can better understand the effect nicotine has had on you. It made my quit easier to see what others had gone through and how they coped.

Welcome Stella! Every day will be a kind of rollercoaster ride for a while. Just breathe though the cravings. It's just your addict brain telling you it wants more of it's drug - a fix! It's incredibly challenging at first, but as stated above, you're through some of the hardest parts. And, while it isn't a linear trip by any stretch, it does get progressively better, overall.
So, just let each craving wash over you. They really don't last very long, and aren't all that terrible. Drink some water, go for a walk or whatever tools you've used for the past two weeks.
It will get better. I promise.+

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "
I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!
Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman
Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think
Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!
Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.
If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!
" I am a puff away form a pack a day"
Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.
I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit, I ate it.
Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Welcome to the board Stela and congrats on your decision to quit and getting TWO WEEKS under your belt. That is huge!!!!!!!!!! You will still have the urge and crave but as Jillar said it will get easier to blow off the more you do it. Keep the quit at the top of your list for a while and then it gets easier. Lots of knowledge and good folks here so post an S.O.S. if need be. Look forward to hearing on your progress to being smoke free. Best wishes and go get this quit.

Hi Stela and congratulations on making the most important decision of your life - quitting this horrible addiction!
You are doing great to have a couple of weeks quit under your belt so far. The first month or so is the hardest part to be sure but, you can focus on the positive things you are starting to realize from quitting rather than dwelling on the misery of the early quit days and that will help a little. I think most of us had issues waking up each day and not lighting up that morning smoke. I changed up my old morning routine a little and that helped me.
You say you "are trying" ...... no; you are DOING IT! You are now a non smoker. Stay committed to that Stela! Smoking is no longer an option in your life no matter what comes your way and the reason for this is that smoking NEVER did anything positive for you. It only quieted your junkie brain for 30-60 minutes. That's all. Now, you are getting back to where you used to be. You know - before you started smoking? That's the YOU that you're now rediscovering. Stick with it. It will get not only easier but you will soon wonder why you didn't quit sooner and, why you ever smoked in the first place

The process of quitting smoking doesn’t end with the last cigarette. It’s not quitting itself, the real key is staying quit!
