wow nearly a full week without a smoke. Am doing okay only find that my anxienty is back on a higher level again. Am hoping that this will soon pass. Plus I have an appointment with counsellor on Tuesday which should help. The other help is seeing how much I have already saved.
Omg I have noticed for the last week I have been sooo hungry all the time. Is this normal and will it slow down. At least I drink plenty of water which I might add has only been since quitting. Please someone tell me my food intake will decrease lol. I’m trying to choose healthy to munch on at the moment ❤️💋❤️
As a never Quit Quitting Quitter, I found new tools for me to STAY Quit this time!
Picked my quit date. Threw away anything and all things related to smoking.
Accountability: Told my Family, Co-Workers, Friends, that I was quitting.
If I get an urge at work, I walk with one of my "smoking" friends, who won't smoke around me. I advised them I had to stay away from smoke. Period.
When I was on my 2nd week (heading into my 3rd week) of not smoking. I noticed that my chest felt so congested, but oddly I couldn't cough! Oh the irony.
At night I found myself taking very shallow breaths, scared me and scared my husband who can sleep through anything! I would sit up and drink more water, (hint: drink water water water) and try to calm down and not focus on the fact that my br...
Hello my friends! It has been a while since I have checked in. With having to find a new residence and then moving, it's been a busy time.
It's my 35 week anniversary of quitting today. I couldn't have done it without all of you. Your support was so instrumental in my quit process.
I only hope that all of you have been as blessed as I have.
So after 43 years of smoking, I had never had any luck stopping. I decided one day, while coughing due to pneumonia, that it was time to stop for good.
My 25 year old son was coming to stay with me for a while and I did not want to have him smelling that smoke as he did not smoke himself.
So I stopped, just like that, I had my resolve to stop for good and just did it.
I have my moments that ...
I cannot get past day 3. Sometimes just the fear of day three causes me to lose my resolve. I just don't understand why I keep doing this to myself. My throat literally aches tonight from smoking. I am in tears, feeling defeated, yet again because of my own poor decisions. & for some unknown (at least to me at this time) reason I keep running right back to it. I am so angry at myself. Why can't I...
Hit another milestone today. 2 whole months!! Feeling very happy.
Nothing much changed since last update. Still have thoughts about smoking (about 4 or 5 a day) but pass after a few seconds. None have come close to making me relapse.
Still no Zyban, but doubt Ill use it now anyway since all "cravings" are mental rather than physical.
If youve just started then I urge you to keep going and ...
Hi Everyone, at last 150 days smoke free, I couldn't wait for 200 days to tell you all. I have learned many things including being the first time on any forum.
I did come back refreshed from my holiday and got stuck right into my new voluntary position (devising a programme and managing people) It went OK but I had very little sleep the night before. I can vouch for the learning of meditation...
It has now been 10 months since I had a cigarette. I was smoking a pack a day and 1 day I just stopped with the aid of nicotine patches. The first 6 weeks were the hardest. At 4 weeks I was very anxious but i thought that it would be a huge waste to get this far and start smoking again. It is by no means easy but after 6 week the cravings started to subside. I still get the occasional feel for 1...
