I made one full day without smokes. I kept myself busy this weekend and stayed away from alcohol. Work stress is my trigger so next week will be interesting. Im also sneezing all day. Interesting.

Good job. Sneezing πŸ˜‚ no idea. There seems to be no end to weird things that happen at the start of our quit.
Keep up the NOPE

Take it one day at a time and you have to start somewhere!
Get in the mindset that you are now a nonsmoker. Smoking is a choice and you have to take it off the table.
If you have stress at work, step back and take a non-smoking break; get a coffee, eat a chocolate, etc.
I would just say myself "NOPE. Find something else to do."
Congratulations and take care of yourself!!

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.

Outstanding, Neverland. NOPE is your life now. You may not smoke for any reason. And before you know it you won't miss them at all.

 

Have you got hard candies, chocolate, closet-cleaning plans? Plenty of ideas to distract yourself from the wanting?

 

You can do this!

Work stress... That's a hard one but I go outside, and take a 5 minute smoke break without cigarettes -  I walk and  just take deep breaths and enjoy the nature around me. I walk back in feeling satisfied. Maybe that will help you. Good luck!!

Nine months ago, I could not even imagine handling work stress without taking my smoke breaks. After 40+ years of smoking, I had never dealt with any work stress without smoking through the problem. Being exclusively on commission, I used that as an excuse for not quitting. But guess what - I did it & you can too.
Read, read, read & then read some more. Once one realizes that having a cigarette does NOT alleviate stress (of any kind); it only relieves (temporarily) the stress generated by the nicotine withdrawal from the previous cigarette - once this sinks in, one can feel newly inspired to learn how to function as a nonsmoker. It is not easy to re-learn everything; but can be done. A few months as a percentage of the rest of your life is well worth It.
Keep us informed as we genuinely care about you doing this.

Congratulations, Neverland! It might be tough at the beginning but it's definitely worth it.

In regards to the work related stress, think if cigarettes really help to solve problems. They don't, you have same things to do and same things to deal with if you smoke or not. So why smoke?

Have a nice week!
