    Hi my name is Sheila. Tomorrow I quit smoking and right now I have butterflies in my stomach. Is that normal?

    Hello Sheila,

    The day before a quit, you can be nervous.  Try to focus on what you are gaining.  What do you have on the agenda to do tomorrow?  

    Helps to talk it through to relieve the jitters.  Anything you specifically worried about?  

    All the best to you tomorrow and check in with us throughout the day. You can do this!

    Hi Shelia, I totally get the "butterflies" feeling. In fact I still feel them. I know from others that quit this is a normal feeling. Such a change. But an important one. Good luck!

    Hi Sheila,
    Way to go on quitting smoking!  It's hard, but doable.  I felt just like you did, but I'd been preparing for a couple of months, lol.  So the night before I quit for good, I was up all night long.  I was still smoking in the morning and finished off most of the pack then went to work.  After work I was so tired, I just went to bed without any cigarettes.  And that my dear, was how I spent Day 1, lol!

    How's your stamina today Sheila?  Have you been able to reduce?  I'm thinking of you and know how challenging it is until you get in a rhythm with it.  Be brave, fight it with all of your will and know that one day or one half day of going without will build your confidence, and then you stretch it a bit everyday.
