Join the Challenge, Let’s Quit Smoking Together – Day 3

Join the Challenge and Let’s Quit Smoking Together.

Day 3

Ok, yesterday I only smoked 8 cigs the whole day but I was so busy I didn’t have a lot of extra time. I am not a public smoker,  I try not to smoke in public places due to respect for other people with health issues and secondhand smoke.

It was very easy for me to only smoke 8 yesterday, but I am back home working today.

I will attempt to only smoke 8 cigarettes again today and that should cut a few days off of my quit date goal.

I am still using the chart I created on Day 1.

I took 8 out of the pack I have and put the rest in the freezer. I kept an old box for this purpose.

If I have any left at the end of today I plan on throwing them away instead of adding them to another day.

I feel like the hard part haven’t started yet. Today will be my real test.

I will update with my results from today.

Day 2

I smoked 11 cigarettes yesterday, If I follow the Quit Challenge method it will take me 12 days to quit smoking.

I have decided to set my quit date for 30 days from now. This can happen before 30 days, but I wanted to give myself plenty of time to complete the process without feeling rushed.

Quit Date 2/13/2018

Wish me luck.

Feel free to share your results, quit date and any advice.

I have made the commitment to only smoke 10 cigarettes today.

You don’t have to add the time everyday, but this will help you choose a timeframe to skip a cigarette and replace it with another activity.

I will try to use the times from day 1 to help stay on track.

For example my first cigarette from day 1 was at 6:08am.  I will use that time to determine when I can have my first smoke everyday by adding approx. 30 mins before and after the time I smoked on day 1.

Example:

Cigeratte 1 – 5:30 – 6:30 am

Cigarette 6 – 12:30 – 1:30 pm
