Day 6 and I'm quitting cigarettes too


Day 6. Feeling strong regarding not drinking today. I just smoked my last cigarette and am quitting those today too. Am I mad to be quitting both at the same time. I have patches, so I'm not too worried about nicotine withdrawals but is this a wise move?

Well I would think it is a wise move. It will be rough and you will be tested like no other. Once you get over the initial hump it won't be so bad. Keep your guard up you AV will try to get you to fail. Good job on the 6 days keep it up and good luck

Doing positive things is alway a wise move....just take it easy on yourself..
I had quit drinking and gave up smoking; cold turkey...so tough!
In hindsight, I would have taken it a little easier, focused on one bad habit at a time.
While I did stay a non-smoker I did go back to drinking...unfortunately.
The drinking lasted for about 18 months on and of, now I am back on track and I am happily a non-drinker and a non-smoker : )

I think it is a good idea. I find the two go hand in hand. Good luck.

The first time I stopped drinking, I also gave up cigarettes pretty soon after. They were intertwined for me, so giving up one made it easier to give up the other.

I will say I focused on giving up drinking as the primary. If I slipped on the smoking, that was forgivable. Relapse on the drinking was a 100% guarantee I'd smoke and do all sorts of other bad, so I picked one as the main focus. Congrats on Day 6!

Come over to the 24 hour quit nicotine thread noneever. It is a really supportive group of people all quitting cigarettes. This is my Day 4 off cigarettes and 2 months sober.
